Hi: First time here. I have a 1988 3.5EFI. Regarding the fuel evaporative unit under the offside rear wing. I am sure I read somewere many years ago that its not really needed. Can anyone advise ? (I am only thinking of removing it if its not nessesary as I am in the middle of changing the rear crossmember and noticed a lot of hardened or split rubber hoses and rusty circlips)

Hi Ivan:

Thanks.

Has your Discovery been MOT'd since you removed it ? and did you seal all the pipes, or did you need to leave any open for air to get in the tank?

It's been through a number of MOT's and no problem. I would either seal the pipes or leave them open as extra breathers. Mine was removed because I fitted a 300 Series ES Diesel body to it. I think they were fitted for fuel evaporation in some countries. Something about not letting surplus fuel evaporate into the air.

Many thanks for the advise: Its coming off, and I will block the pipes up.
