Hey crew,

My 91 FJ80 is running bit rough so I was digging around under the hood while replacing plugs & found this part just sitting in front of the distributor cap....

What is it & where does it go?:)

looks like it is the "tuna can". I don't have a 3fe but in the 1fz there is a dust collector that clips under the air filter housing and collects dust and dirt to keep the filter from getting clogged with all the larger heavier particles.

Haha, @ppc beat me to it. I was too verbose in my response.

That's a "tuna" can located on the underside of the air filter box,designed to catch dust/debris. (oops, stepped away from the computer and others beat me to it)

Why tuna? I think it looks more like a chicken can 🤷‍♂️

When I bought my 93 that can had a mouse nest in it which proves that it does catch solids but I was under the impression that it was more of a sump where water could run down into quickly evacuating it from the main filter housing. It does incorporate a drain hole.
