Yes, the threaded part of the T goes into the bottom of the air cleaner housing and one hose from the T goes to the canister. There is no "ported vacuum" port on my Weber carb. The 3rd post you reference is for the Solex carb, which I do not have. The fix for the upgrade of a Weber is the T that goes up from under the air cleaner housing.Yes, that certainly seems contradictory!LOL
From your description above, it sounds like that threaded port on your brass tee pictured above goes to the bottom of the air cleaner housing. If so, then it sounds like your connection from the canister into the carb is not complete. There needs to be a canister-to-carb connection to go to a port on the side of the Weber carb (ported vacuum). See the red circled port in the pix in the 3rd post of the Turbobricks article linked above.
I am realizing now that the venting of the fuel tank (as fuel is drawn out) also goes via the canister in some of these canister systems. So that has to be part of all this. So your present connection from the air cleaner to the canister probably needs to stay for that function. And, I guess I am going to have to take one of these apart (after all these years) to see how the 3 hose nipples lead into the charcoal bits.
May I ask: Does the 'other' end of your canister (the end with no hose nipples) have any openings, with a foam or paper filter behind it?
Mmmmm.... I think there is some confusion... IN my most recent post, I was not referring to the 3rd post in this thread by Kwilford... but the 3rd post in the linked Turbobricks thread.There is no "ported vacuum" port on my Weber carb. The 3rd post you reference is for the Solex carb, which I do not have.
Ah-ha!! Got it. I will study on this after work.Mmmmm.... I think there is some confusion... IN my most recent post, I was not referring to the 3rd post in this thread by Kwilford... but the 3rd post in the linked Turbobricks thread.
Alternately, google for 'weber 32/36 ported vacuum' and look at the images.... there's all sort of pix of the ported vacuum port on the Weber 32/36.
Yes, the distributor's vacuum advance is connected to the port on the carb. Not sure if it matters but I do not have a choke on this carb. And my carb does not have a vacuum nipple at the blue circle, and I will not be drilling any holes into it.Roger.. To get it configured similarly to an original system, you would keep the present connection to the air cleaner, and add a connection from the presently blocked-off port on the canister to the ported vacuum through a restrictor.
Your distributor's vacuum advance may be connected to the ported vacuum already.
That makes sense. I did get this car as a semi-project, so since it's overall in pretty nice shape, I find myself enjoying the tinkering around with that which is not in good shape, such as some of the engine compartment wiring, and that dog-gone canister LOL!!I understand your desire to get this right, but for what it's worth, most GT owners have deleted the charcoal cannister. If your tank lines are in good shape and you don't have any engine bay leaks you won't have any issues with gas smells in the car. I've owned 4 GTs and none of them had this system in place and I never had a problem with gas odors. These were obviously designed for solex carbs, which are almost extinct on GTs.
