My 1984 US Turbo Esprit has an Evap system.
However, the manual that I have, only have schematics for the CIS equiped model.

Do someone in the US have such for the carburated version?

Thanks

I do have the manual. But my does not include a schematic, or diagram, of the Evap system for a carburated version.

A photo of the vacuum system sticker normally found on the inside of the rear deck should give you what you need. Unfortunately I have a CIS equipped car so it will have to come from someone with an earlier car ('85 or older in the US).

Thanks a lot. This must be the one.
My Esprit is a federal car.
Though, I am to delete the airpump, so have to tie into the intake somehow.

The air pump is just that, an air pump - not a vacuum pump. Its main purpose is to inject air just downstream of the exhaust valves to help complete combustion (lowers CO). The pump also pushes vapor out of the vapor trap and adds air to the catalyst to help it light off a bit faster. None of that is really necessary in making the engine run correctly. Just be sure to blank off all the air lines if you remove the pump.
