    Ha! My grandfather had one of those when I was a kid. I have a matching matchbox for it that my kids still play with. They call it Grandpa B's car.

    That could be Austin's first car. Think how proud he would be when pulling into the high school parking lot.

    Picking away at it, I sorted all the parts, and re-sorted. Started cleaning things and the truck itself.
    Found all the hardware, soaked it in wd40.

    Like Toyota forensics, trying to decide which bolts Mr. T wanted where.

    @jamarquardt22 tossed me a booster for a v6 truck a while back. He said it should bolt right up. I though it would interfear with the steering joint at the firewall.
    Finally got them side by side, looks like Mr. T provided a spacer on the stock booster.
    I'm gonna try and swap the studs over tomorrow.
    If they go, it should work.

    If I knew I would tell you. I kept all that. But that looks real crusty. Are you emissions exempt? If not your going to need it for inspection.

    :frown:
    Thanks for the reply.
    You don't know the good ol'boyz I know. :cheers:

    Anywho, no inspection needed to wheel Rousch/AOAA.

    So, I ask again, anyone with any insight here?

    Can I run without the canisters?

    Start plugging vac lines?

    When I can, I'll sit down and read the minitruck FAQ over on Pirate.

    I don't know what the small one is either...

    A proper desmog is going to be tough with the factory carb. Don't know that I have seen this info out there on the web like it is for cruisers.

    I would keep a charcoal canister to vent your gas tank properly without smelling.

    I have a box full of them - sure there is something in there that would work. How many ports are on it, and what is the distance between the holes on the bracket?

    Have you thought about a Weber? It used to be a common swap.
