My carbon canister is shot. A couple questions:
1. If I remove it do I just plug vacuum line from manifold and vapor(?)one coming from tank? Do I have to make sure vapor line end is above tank level? As you know getting back into the hook-up on top of tank is not a fun job, and it doesn't seem to get any easier the more times I do it.
2. If I replace it does anyone know what the third nipple(?) is for? I have one that came from tank and one from vacuum. I like the idea of not emitting more gas fumes into the air.

You could remove it, but DO NOT plug the line from the gas tank(possible vacuum created). You could plug off the 2 brass nipples on the back of each carb., or just run a fuel line between them.
The 3rd nipple originally had a red plastic plug in it--yours must be missing
