I've been working on this basket case 1983 Caballero for about a year. I call it a basket care because someone took everything off the motor (I mean everything) and lost interest. My son picked it up for me because I've always wanted a el camino. I've been putting it back together . I'm close to finishing but stuck on the vaccume lines .
I've attached 2 pictures
My questions
Does that look like the same canister control valve as shown is my book.
If yes. I am confused about where it said the canister hose attaches. Because in my diagram the canister doesn't go directly to the control valve.
Any help would be great

Same valve. Cannister goes through a thermal vacuum switch so the system does not operate when the engine is cold then to the cannister control valve.

Ok. Thats what I thought. Thank you..
One more question. I can't figure out where the control valve goes. It seems that it just going to lay.on top . Does it attach to anything ? I don't see any brackets or anything.?

IIRC it just sits there in the driver front corner under the hood
