It is related with evaporative emission control and it is the charcoal canister. I would check all the hoses going to the canister

Hopefully thcharcoal did'nt get drawn into the carb. Some older chrysler's I ran across did that, i, ve seen vacume sources plugged to charcoal in the carb float bowl, hopefully it didn't do that for you. Pull the line off the carb and try to probe in vacime port and see if any debris comes out. Good luck
