So the one in the picture is not yours betzgb? 'Cause if'n it is, that one looks like it would clean up real easy. Might even look brand new after you're done.
If it's not yours, bummer.

For those with '76's and no valve, do you have the full outside-the-frame plumbing orientation for the charcoal canister? And do you also have the high-mount canister under the hood, or is it still using the round metal can on the frame?
Just wondering if the valve was a running change during, or after the changeover to the new style canister.

rollover valves are odd, they really dont do anything if you rollover, nothing closes, what happens is any liquid moving through it forces the valve close. Air does not.

Our problem is most of our tank vents are prone, when tank is full, to push liquid through the vent line when you brake to slow down. Thats why that plastic container behind the driver seat was invented, it was the rollover valve by making a place for fuel to slosh until it could drain back into the tank.

Thanks for delorean link i'm ordering another one, i had one ten years ago, really i did.

the lill plastic tank is by ur left hip when driving. Has at least 3 lines
into it?. Its hidden by a sheetmetal cover @ an upside dwn "V" in the
surrounding frame work (been awhile since I saw it, just aft of the
door opening).
Tryin to remember if I saw the valve too. U can make the mounting
lill sheet metal mounting bracket with a scrap and vice, a chunk of 2X
to wack for the 90* angles. The cover would be tougher if U need to
make one of them (but doable). Speaking of fuel systems-

I'd like a "roll over switch". All the ele fuel pumps folks retro fit (efi
systems, vapor lock, etc) continiously pump fuel in what can B cat-0-
strophic situations (fire, explosion, etc) when the "key is on". If I
were to use such a mod I'd want what went w/them the 'impact switch'
is that the correct name? Didn't ford have them to the right of the pas-
senger's foot well @ some X?
