    I just finished a 350 conversion and I have a couple of questions. Is it necessary to keep the vapor collector (located behind the passenger seat) in my rig? And do I need to hook up the return line? if so, which tube fitting is it? Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Well folks I plugged it and my cruiser is running fine. Be advised this is not a technical recommendation but an experience that so far has worked. :D I will look forward to "real" advise from the "all knowing" FJ40 masters who frequent this forum. :p

    plug them all, LOL

    no i suggest hooking up the fuel return and fuel feed from the tank to engine compartment. There you can plug the fuel return if not needed, but with any other setup you might need the return, i just switched to a different fuel pump and i need the fuel return now :D . fuel collector crap i would just cap off all of them and make sure that your vent to the outside through the cap is good.

    as far as which fitting is fuel and which is fuel return, stick some fuel in the can blow down both lines the one that blows bubbles is fuel one that just makes airy sounds is return, :flipoff2:
