Question

While replacing the battery tray in my 67 I noticed a black canister that is bolted to the wheel housing. This canister sits next to the battery with one plastic hose and one metal pipe that runs under the radiator then connects to the front side of the radiator. What is this and do I need it. I just purchased the car and am finding new exciting things like this all the time. Thanks again.

Sounds more like some kind of a transmission coolerÖ. If it were metal and on the fender well with fuel lines coiled through it Iíd say it was a fuel cooler, but charcoal canisters didnít come on 67s. Even the California emissions that were on my 67 only consisted of a hose from the breather cap to the bottom of the air cleaner.

Sound like your car has factory air, I think the part's called a dryer. '67 a/c cars are somewhat rare, good for you if you have the rest of the stuff. Check your tag with the "tag team"

Ok John just slap me! Iím a little slow today.... Yeah if those lines are going to a silver colored uhh... radiator the radiator is called a condenser, it removes heat from the freon and the black can removes or traps moisture.
