Evap Canister Relocation

by Dave Warden
 

Ok, now you can begin the actual "spacing".  I used 1/2" thick Marine Star Board and a 3/4" hole saw to cut out the pieces.


You will need 8 of them so go ahead and chop them out and bench grind them till there fairly smooth and round.


Now since the can will be spaced out 1" the stock bolts obviously won't be long enough, luckily the bolt where the single nut goes on is just long enough to be able to use so don't worry about extending that one.  The lower slot on the right side is long enough to space out so no problem there.


OK for bolts I went to my local Advanced Auto Parts and picked up three M8-1.25x40mm Hex Flanged Cap Screws.  (I also used one M8-1.25x40mm bolt that was one inch longer to tie the plate and can together).


Last you will also need one M8 Nut for the slot where the can bolts to the bracket on the body.


At that mounting point on the evap canister, you will need to re-drill that hole 1" forward.


Now that you have all the needed hardware, go ahead and place the evap canister back in.  Re-connect your lines and place your spacers (two on each bolt). Two spacers will go on each bolt that mounts through the bracket and onto the frame and then two spacers will go on the bolt that's on the bracket and goes through the evap canister and cover plate.


Congrats. You have now finished the install.
