the first thing i thought was that someone had rigged up an old can as a resivoir or something.

if it is part of my emission system can i take it off since i don't have to get tested? i mean, i was going to replace it anyway but if i don't need it then.... i really want to open up a little more room under there (or somewhere else in the engine bay) to make room for a second battery or air tank. i don't remember one being in my cj5.

If it is still plumbed correctly it will prevent any lost fuel from spilling during high angles or roll over. It has no affect on performance.

Charcoal can for emmissions usually has more lines on it, and at least one going to the carb area. I think Dave hit it with it being a vac res. canister. If you are running a Q-trac, you need it for shifting, jkas well as most of the other vac operated stuff. It just evens out the vaceum to a steady level.

That is also a non performance robbing component. And handy too!
