I have recently purchased a 1968 camaro with a 327/250hp,2-speed powerglide and 4-wheel drum, and I have started to restore it. When I pulled off the driver side fender I found a coffie can looking thing that was bolted to the fire wall just above the inner fender, but wasn't hooked up. My question is this, what is this piece called? What does this piece do? And how do I hook it up? Any responce will be very helpful.. thanks

I believe you are refering to the Vacuum Canister for the A/C system. Does the car have A/C?

mccory is correct.

There should be a small vacuum line that goes through the firewall to the dash switch. The larger line goes to one of the intake manifold vacuum ports.

New! Vintage 45's and a homemade cowl induction air cleaner.
