So, in the process of dismantling the GT6 (1971), I discover that the fuel
tank has this array of vent lines sprouting from every corner (total of 5),
which all wind about the boot and eventually empty into this little (~2 liter)
puke tank nestled up in the right wing. Joining this collection is a
contributing line from the evaporates cannister in the front. As I was
wiggling the small tank about while removing it, the distinct odour of well
aged gas wafted up and sure enough, the seam along one end appeared to be
leaking. I assume this mess is yet another rather awkward attempt at meeting
some emmission regulation or other (my factory shop manual makes no reference
to it). I don't particularly want to mend the tank if it is, in reality,
doing diddly squat, so I'm looking for input. Should I:
a) just hook up the line from the evaporates can to the main tank, throw out
the puke tank and seal the rest?
b) seal off the whole works because they aren't really doing anything anyway?
c) bite the bullet, steam out the puke tank, get it resoldered and reassemble
the whole works?
