1981 Stage 1 Hardtop resto question

Post by Rig30mechanic »

I need to replace all the fuel lines that a previous owner installed when fitting a second tank. Incorrect plastic had all hardened. In sorting these I found a small tank behind the R.H. Rear taillight that is connected to tank breather tubes. I cannot find any info on its purpose.
Anyone have any info?
Cheers

Pretty sure it's for emissions. Mine has one on the back of the cab.

So you have a Leyland Australia Land-Rover 3.5?

As per the last pages in the main parts list it is the vapour tank. Part of the evaporative loss system.
