    Anyone else have this happen,
    One spring I take my 78 out and it's running crappy, I had the carb done 3 years before, so I take it to my guy, he takes the carb off and all these pellets fall out, the screen in the char canister went, on purge, the pellets get sucked in the carb, year one at the time had a replacement from the grand national, only diff is an extra port on it, but it comes with a cap to block it off even, supp it has charcoal wadding in and no pellets, I see guys put large lawn EQ fuel filters on the purge line to catch the pellets if the OG one goes, I did find a nOS one for my car but I don't think I'll use it, good to have in the stash. The one on my Pontiac may be the same one on a Camaro, I don't know.
