Yesterday i relocated the evap. It was a pain due to a couple things, one being i loaned my right angle drill to a friend (who is out of town!) Doh!. That cost me at least an hour, but i ended up using one of those twist bendy things on the end of my drill with some hex shank drill bits. Then i finished off the holes with self tapping sheet metal screws. I spent a lot of time trying to unplug that stupid electrical connector because its very hard to see when the evap is in the original location. Remember that the red safety thing needs to get pushed down
about 1/8" before the connector can open. I just cut the wires (had to get done sometime). I moved the T for the vacuum lines to the other side along with the evap. I cut the small hose that goes on the t and that was a ***** to get onto the t. I gave up and used a larger piece of hose to go over it with a clamp. I almost busted out my lighter to soften up the end and make it easier, but not on a gas line!! Once you hack up the bracket that the evap had, its actually a good fit on the drivers side. It pretty much butts up against the back of the tub where the tail light comes thru (no flush mounts for me now
I welded on a tab to the metal brace and then a piece of SS to go across and bolt onto the tub seams. The electrical part is super easy, the wires start on the drivers side to just match up the colors. You will need a long thick walled vacuum tube to run from the tank hat to the other side. I had some from something else, but make sure the tube won't crush down under vacuum.
It took about 4-5hrs just for the relocation, and my hands had plenty of bleeding cuts on them at the end of the day. I hate working in cramped situations! Pics will come once i lift the passenger side.
I think it will look much better with some 35s filling the gap.
