1969 – 1973 40-Series Toyota Land Cruiser
Is the replacement of the Charcoal Canister aka Standard Ignition Vapor Canister aka Evaporative Emission Control System in order for your 1969 – 1973 40-Series Toyota Land Cruiser? This is our RL1002 Charcoal Canister Heater Mount specifically made for the 1969 – 73 FJ40.
Tired of your garage smelling like fuel? Wifey telling you to “get that stinky thing out of here!” While you may be willing to park your rig outside, you should not be letting your fuel tank over pressurize due to a charcoal canister that has gone bad. But too, the charcoal canister connects directly to the engine and “driven” with vacuum, thus can be affecting your engine’s air-fuel mixture.
But maybe you have been putting off replacing the charcoal canister due to the “forever-out-of-stock” factory Toyota Charcoal Canister? There is a readily available solution from… shall we dare say… Chevrolet? Yes, the Chevy sized charcoal canister is readily available, BUT their canister is larger in diameter than the factory Toyota canister. We made a solution for that. Because of these two scenario’s, we’ve made the RL1002 Charcoal Canister Heater Mount, 1969 – 1973 40-Series Toyota Land Cruiser specifically for this purpose. Because this charcoal canister is larger that the stock Toyota charcoal canister, we’ve made this relocation mount in order to accommodate for the larger canister.
When you get your mount, locate your heater blower in your engine compartment as this is where you will relocate the new larger charcoal canister.
You will remove the outer two bolts that holds the fan onto the heating housing and set those aside (you will not reuse these).
Note that we supplied two longer bolts to use in mounting the charcoal canister mount.
Once you’ve mounted the charcoal canister mount the additional bolt is included just so that you have all these bolts matching and looking good. Now your ready to drop in your new larger charcoal canister and have a smell-free garage! Just don’t start telling your buddies you have a V8 under the hood! But maybe you did that already… #ChevyYota Your secret is safe with us!
Tip for future Charcoal Canister Preservation – While at the gas station filling up your Land Cruiser’s fuel tank, the gas station pump has an automatic cut-off mechanism for a reason! It’s there to let you know when the tank is “full.” Yes you can manually click-click-click in more fuel into your tank, but at the risk flooding the charcoal canister with fuel. The canister is only meant to extract fuel vapors, not “drink” fuel which does not allow the charcoal canister to extract the vapor, thus the smell in your nice garage kept FJ40 Land Cruiser.
