Do you need just the section behind the extension or do you need the trunk lip / w-strip area too

I think I have a good one

Is it this part? If so, they don't make 'em as aftermarket.

I had a local junk yard hack off the corners from a donor car. If yours is the driver side, I might be able to help you out, as I still have the 'new' piece from the 'yard car. If it's the passenger side, I already used it. ;)

 

Hope that helps.

The canister is a vacuum reserve tank for the cars with A/C. The doors and motors of the system are operated by engine vacuum. The tank held vacuum in reserve so that the settings would stay under low vacuum situations, ie; heavy acceleration. Without it, the doors and motors return to their resting position, which IIRC is full defrost. I don't remember which nipple is which, but one will go to the vacuum tree on the back of the manifold. There are two vacuum lines coming out of a grommet on the firewall by the heater hoses, one goes to this canister, the other to the hot water shut off valve on the hoses.

 

The plug in your air cleaner housing is blocking off where the crankcase breather and filter are supposed to be. Looks like you have an aftermarket set of valve covers.

 

Looks like a custom ignition setup and that is the weirdest looking starter solenoid I've ever seen. Seems that you are missing your voltage regulator, unless it's been moved?

As I see the fuel line corresponding to EVAP system (vapor) should be connected in the smaller canister tube/plug/role. Is that correct?

I will post more pictures during the day.

thanks a lot for the help so far.

I see you are in S.A. so there are probably some differences in how the cars are put together for down there. Was is built in U.S. or Mexico?

I don't see an oil fill cap on the left side valve cover how do you put oil into the engine? There should be lots of pictures of how the hoses go on the forum. The PCV positive crankcase ventilator is needed to keep moisture and dirt out of your engine.

Looks to me like you have maybe two Right Hand valve covers? Something odd?

Do a search for Vacuum lines and PVC in the search box sure you will find pictures. The solenoid is probably something that got substituted or used in S.A..

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Now I just have f...ed up everything!

I towed my car about 15 meters backwards with another car yesterday......

Surprise!!

Today I installed the fuel tank again, start the car ok, but the transmission does not work anymore!!

really sad sad think....

"you can't tow an automatic car with the wheels on the ground...."

Guys..... do you think i totally broke the transmission? End of history?

Is there any hope?

Did you put the car in neutral prior to towing it?

I thought so.... I got in neutral, My wife and I tried to push... it was too heavy... gone about 1 meter.... so i had the brilliant idea to tow with her car....

Since my transmission is dead now ..... maybe it was on P or D...

::shrug:::(:(:(

Did the wheels turn freely while pulling the car? If it was in Park or Drive they would have skidded across the surface. If it was in Park or Drive and the wheels turned freely while towing the Trans was likely damaged prior to you towing it.

The other car towed it easily.... about 12 meters...

In Neutral I think.

But the transmission was working before that..

Another think I notice is that the carburetor butterfly valve does not move anymore when I push the accelerator pedal... And the carburetor is spitting gas.....

15 meters in neutral shouldn't be enough to damage it. When they say not to tow it they mean for some distance.

My carburetor is flooding gas...

I found out it has parts missing.

Can you help me identify what is it?

 

Can this be responsible for the flooding of gas out of it???

 

 

see the pictures of the missing part

Not a carburetor guy here but I think that is the accelerator pump that gives the engine a shot of gas when you step on the gas to get you going without hesitation. You adjust the linkage up and down to give more or less.

Can the absence of theses parts cause the fuel flooding?

From the Jeepforum about my problem:

 

"The modulator choke pull-off diaphragm controls the whole pull-off operation of the choke. Without the linkage, the choke won't open. That's why your engine only runs for 30-40 seconds, then it floods and dies.

Hope this helps,

Matt "
