Hello!! I'm hoping that someone here can help me.
I bought my 1984 Mazda B2000, SE-5 brand new off the showroom floor in 1983. I purchased in in Pennsylvania (where I grew up) and then drove it to Phoenix where I lived until 1991. Then I moved to Los Angeles where I currently live. My truck was my daily driver until 2008, and has been an amazingly close friend ; )
I don't daily it anymore but drive it every week. With almost 300,000 miles on it, it super-reliable and in pretty darn good condition. But ... it just failed emissions due to a leaking Vapor Canister. I have a week to get it repaired, re-smogged and registered. Yikes!!!
My dilemma... where do I find another vapor canister!! Part #831713970
. I'm told it's not possible to repair mine, and I can't seem to locate another one anywhere. I can't complain that it only lasted 33 years, but... what do I do now?
Is there another canister that I can use as a replacement? I'm not a mechanic, but this thing looks pretty simplistic on the outside. ... 3 hoses and 1 screw to remove it.
I'm open to any suggestions and appreciate any feedback.
By any chance would someone mind loaning me theirs for a couple days? ; )
