Default General talk about your truck..

1st time on any forum, I have a couple questions about this 92' F150 Flareside. Question is about the vapor canister for the fumes from the truck. 1st I know it should be used and is def. recommended, but I am interested in bypassing it just for the time being, until I do drive this often for now its parked in the driveway sitting with bed off. This is gonna be strictly "4X4" in the woods & huntin' kinda truck. Maybe a trip to pick up wood or something, wont be everyday driver. Replaced fuel pump, fixed oil pan, new fluids, all I want this to do right now is run, when the bed was taken off the line from the top of the fuel tank to the canister near the carb. was broke. Broke near the tank, Just to make sure engine is still good and not blown, (friend said it ran fine before I got it, havent started it since I had it cause of oil pan, but its fixed now) is there n e way to bypass it or even leave it broke for now to try to start it? Once it starts and I know it runs Ill replace it the correct way. Thanks for reading & any info about this type of truck is greatly appreciated! BlackNGold627

Assuming you didn't mean carb, that line is for fuel vapors to return to the tank. it won't really adversely effect anything, but it's required for emissions testing.

It won't throw a cel. I yanked that breather thing off the fender well a couple months ago and it was so rusted there's no way it's been doing anything for year. Lines to and from are now gone as well.
