Vacuum hoses

I was looking under the hood on my car tonight. What I was wondering was if I could get rid of the vacuum canister. Alot of my vacuum lines are in bad shape so I was gonna try to clean it up a little. I thought I heard that you could loose the vac canister but there is a sensor of some sort from the can to my intake. So what all lines can I get rid of or block off to make my motor look cleaner. My smog pump is unhooked.
Also there are a couple of looks like sensors on the passenger fender that goes to a large vac connector that has 4 lines on it. Can I get rid of it too? Any help would be great. I'm gonna replace the vac lines but if I can get rid of some not being used in the process that would be awesome.
Thanks in advance.

I meant to say that it is called the carbon canister. I was looking through my chitons book and that is what they call it. Can I just unhooked the vent lines from it and remove it or do I need to keep it. What would I need to do with the vent line from the gas tank?

This actually helps keep the fumes down.you should probably keep it.I did take mine off though.but I am carbed, so I wasn't worried about sensors.

The tank will still need to be vented and without it it you would have raw, easily ignitable fumes being expelled.

No, but you can just pull one end off and measure the ID of each size hose.
Here's a kit on eBay. The seller has a 100% reputation.
