Red face Help Identifying Canister on Passenger Fender

Hey everyone,

I am in the process of replacing the fenders on my '85 CJ7 and just removed the passenger side one, kind of taking a quick inventory of what I need to re-screw in once the new part is in place. Everything checked out but then I came to this canister looking round little box that is attached to the fender, this is directly across from the battery, and a little lower. I know I have my charcoal canister on the other side of the Jeep so I wasn't immediately sure what this was and wanted to know. Its not hooked up to anything currently.....So I it needs to be connected properly I want to make it that way. I took a picture of the canister on the passenger side fender. Not the greatest pic, but you can see it there, its the round little circular cylinder.

Vacuum reservoir for the pulse air and solvac systems.

Yep, it's simply a vacuum canister. Many people remove these when they "nutter" their jeep because they tend to rust out and cause a vacuum leak.

Thank you both for the quick responses, its greatly appreciated. Since I installed a Weber Carb in place of the Carter, do I even need that? I don't plan on needing to pass any emissions tests in the future or anything like that. If I can remove that piece it would be good, just trying to get rid of excess things. Sounds like I can....

Just wanted to check and confer with you experts on Jeep Forum.

Doesn't it also aid in a final push of your power brakes if there is engine loss? I know the XJs used one about the same size, oval and plastic.

Nope, has nothing to do with the power brake system and can be removed if the Nuttered or Pulse Air/Solvac is out. It probably has pinholes from rust anyway and will cause vacuum leaks. It kind of looks like a half a coffee can.

Did you bypass the computer (Nutter) when you installed the Weber? If so, then everything relating to the pulse air and solvac systems can be removed, including the vacuum reservoir.

I strongly suggest you get a Factory Service Manual for your Jeep. Links for free FSM downloads have been posted countless times.
