1978 pre-cat. Verified from Colorado state emissions. Registered collector vehicle.
Iím trying to properly vent the fuel tank. Liquid check valve/ rollover check valve hoses cut and plugged at tank.
Will a vented gas cap properly vent the tank, or do I need to re-install the check valve lines and run back to the charcoal canister with the vapor line?
And will the charcoal canister need vacuum to work properly?

A vented gas cap will do the job.
Be very cautious about parking in a closed garage till the Jeep cools down after a drive.
