I'll assume it's got a ring that needs to tapped counter-clockwise with a drift? Soak in pentrant and remove it? Otherwise, good luck, I find that most II forums are pretty dead.

The vapor valve is just pushed into a rubber bushing. It's typically very dry-rotted and very difficult to remove. I found that soaking it in some PB Blaster for a good 30 minutes let me pry it out without wrecking it.

This isn't the most active II forum, but there are a few good guys here who know their stuff.

The most active community by far is Mustangii.net, those guys live for these cars.
