Default 86 GT Charcoal Canister

Hi,
Have attached a pic of the Charcoal Canister as it sits on my 86 Gt Vert. I am uncertian if everything is there. Does anything fix into the two larger holes in the top? The Purge Valve is just laying loose. Would anyone be kind enough to post a similar pic for comparision [86 Mustangs are not common in Australia] and then I can go about restoring things to the original positions. My Haynes Repair Manual also does not show enough detail and is hard to tell exactly what is on the top of the canister from the sketch shown.
I shall replace the Canister [as this one is damaged] and the Valve, the pic of the New Canister does not show anything other than the Canister and is hard to tell if the Larger Holes I have in mine should be capped.
Many Thanks,
Michael Black

Those two holes do not connect to anything, but they do have caps. New canisters do not come with caps, unfortunately.





National Parts Depot sells the caps and canister. Based on your pic you want part #M-9D653-4 (original), or part #M-9D653-4B (reproduction).

caps and canister - http://www.npdlink.com/store/catalog...ns-6136-1.html
international shipping - http://www.npdlink.com/store/pages/i..._policies.html







One line leads to the fuel tank, the other leds to the purge valve and on to a metal fitting on the underside of the upper intake, at the front. Check the hose at the intake as that hose can dry out and crack overtime resulting in a vacuum leak. And your drive belt looks cracked. Put that on the list as well.

By the way, the 86-93 5.0 use the same setup and pretty much the same parts when it comes to emissions. The major differences are with the wiring harnesses, the engine itself, some brake and suspension parts.

Now thats a lot clearer, many thanks for that. In the past I have used RockAuto Parts or Late Model Restoration and have been very pleased with both, but shall look at NPD and check them out. RockAuto didn't seem to have the caps. Yes the Belt was on the list. It started with Front Sway Bar bushes and hangers and now adding a few more items to balance the shipping costs.
Many Thanks.

Glad to help.

I just now noticed that last pic is not for a Mustang, it is actually for a Crown Victoria/Mercury Marquis. The parts are the same, but the intakes faced the opposite direction from a Mustang (a mirror image). So with that pic, simply reverse the image for a Mustang. Its not that big a deal really as you would notice something was off at some point, but thought it best to mention the pic is incorrect for your application. Sorry about that.

Here is a Mustang. Compare the two pics and you will see what i mean.
