    i was wondering where a person could purchase new canisters? Or would it be best to completely eliminate them? I have the slant six with the lean burn computer, if I ditched the canisters would that effect the rest of the truck? I know I should just ditch the lean burn and I plan on doing so within the next little while but I just wanna enjoy the truck for a bit before I do that

    Ditch the canisters and plumb the lines into the vent line on the carb. You can't hardly kill a slant 6. Definitely get rid of the lean burn. Keep your eyes open for a 2bbl in lake and carb too. It really wakes up that little guy.

    For the 2 barrel would that be the super 6 option? And as far as plumbing the lines I really don’t know what I’m doing there

    No problem. The vent line will be on or near the top of the carb. Most of them are a steel line that disappears under the truck and uses a push on rubber line to connect it. What you will need is about 3 feet of 1/4" vacuum line and depending on the number of canisters either one splice and one tee or two tees. If you don't want to mess with all of that, you can also just plug the lines unless the vent line runs to them then you will have to connect them.

    Your right about the super 6 package. It was found in some aspens and volares in the 70's. It may be found on some trucks and vans from the era.
