Evaporator canister in Morris/Metropolitan vacuum line?

Recommended Posts

A friend is pretty new to his Metropolitan so I have been walking him through various bits and pieces under the hood.  In the vacuum line to the distributor advance pot there is a vertical canister that I have only seen in other small British cars like a Morris Minor.

What is its purpose?

I have googled about and found replacements, but not an explanation of what it does.


Thank you,
