Hi everyone, I am ready to order up my fuel system and have a couple of questions. First off my motor is a 383 stroker that is fairly healthy (513hp, 506tq), I am running a mighty demon 750 carb and a holley 110gph mechanical fuel pump. My Chevelle is a 1972 and has a charcoal canister and emission system under the back seat, my original fuel tank has two lines that look like a vent or breather line (one located at each corner of the tank). Here is my question is there any way I can eliminate these systems? I want get rid of the charcoal canister and unhook the system under the back seat, can this be done? I was wondering if I could just use a fuel tank and cap for a 1970 Chevelle. I have been told it can be done but I have to have a way to vent the tank. Just so everyone knows I am ordering a new fuel tank, mounting straps (and insulation),fuel lines and cap and sendin unit. My main issue has been trying to eliminate this canister and still have a safe and proper vented fuel system, Thank you for your input.
i took out the canister, am using a stock sending unit, put a sump in the tank, welded in a bung for return line, and as far as venting, used the stock lines coming off the sending unit, just make sure ya route it above the tank
