    jimrr - i own a 1972 Series 3 NA spec. It was bought new in 1972 in Manchester NH. I bought it from the original owner 20 years ago, it was still all original. It has the emission control set up as described in the diagram i posted and it is still in working condition. About 6 years ago i replaced the hose that runs from the fuel tank to the overflow tank and the hose from the overflow tank to the charcoal canister. I also took the charcoal canister apart and cleaned it and put in fresh charcoal. I have replaced the original Lucas distributor which was also different because of the emission control set up. It also had an anti-diesel solenoid attached to the zenith carb which i also replaced (the carb that is) the solenoid is no longer part of the set up although I still have it somewhere.

    MJL; now that you've mentioned it i do sort of recall a black cylinder with hoses on it but that got tossed years and years ago. this is probably why i have gas leaks if i top off the tank. ............ another 'repair' waiting.

    I just went outside and took a picture of it. The camera is positioned on the left rear wheel pointing towards the front of the vehicle. I would have cleaned up a bit before taking the picture but it's below freezing today.

    The image I posted of the parts is not in the standard parts manual, it is from a Parts Catalogue Supplement for Series IIA and Series III 88 To U.S.A. Specification. The part number of the supplement is 606494. There are 108 pages in it. About 6 years ago I bought the Original Technical Publications for Land Rover Series models 1948 to 1985 and it was on there. Part number of the CD is LPT3001. You can buy it here https://store.otpubs.com/brands/Land-Rover.html it's $69.95 which is a good price considering buying the paper version of the supplement alone from our hosts costs $60

    that looks a lot like the piece of metal they put under the LH fender to cover brake/clutch pedal area but i think it is considerably longer than the one low range is posting but sure looks similar, coincidence i suppose?
