I just got a 1988 yj and was doing a tune up for the first time when i noticed that the valve cover has a vent that comes out and runs into a paint can that is mounted on the inside of the driver side fender. I just want to know what the vent is and where is the hose supposed to go? Can anyone help me out with this?

nope, it is actually a paint can. The valve cover just has a 90 degree elbow running to a piece of rubber hose that goes into a hole cut into the top of the paint can.
