Liquid evaporator plumbing
My car a '73 SPICA Spider had a new fuel tank installed in it's history. Everything is operational except filling the tank is a nursing project to get gas into the tank from the pump. On further investigation, it seems the plumbing to the liquid-vapor -evaporator is askew the bottom vent fronm the L-E is capped with a rubber nipple.. Is there something going on here that needs attention? There is no filler neck vent either.
I just got rid of the canister and installed a vented gas cap off a ‘65 Giulia Sprint. I installed a hose going from the tank to the fitting on the filler neck. At this point are any of these canisters still working properly?
When removing the canister in my car I think the top hose went to the filler neck fitting and the bottom went to the fitting on the tank.
sounds like your 'new' tank lost the vent nipple on the filler neck?
the vapour tank has 3 nipples, one at top and 2 at bottom.
top: this one has the little vent valve and goes to that hard line running along the cylinder head - that looks correct on your set up.
middle: this goes to the filler neck (on yours it goes to the tank)
bottom: goes back to tank (on yours capped off)
see post #3 here for original set up:
diagram is useful too (not spider, OK, but same thing!):
