K&H are an awesome team.
These guys did my pump. They are down the street from K&H Imports a well-known LC shop in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley and I understand they do a lot of the rebuilds for K&H. HTH
I second B-Z Rebuilders. I sent them my smog pump and it's now been on for probably 15,000 trouble free miles. It does make some squeak and chirp noises for the first 500 or 1000 miles, just be warned. They include a leaflet explaining that the sound is normal.Looking for guidance for replacing or rebuilding my smog pump. In CA. Can’t seem to find a replacement. Thank you.
It’s going to take some investigation and patience. None of that stuff is available new anymore so the only source will be ancient old parts removed by a guy de-smogging his 2F.where to source all of this?
Looks like I’m missing entire egr system… can anyone confirm what that comprises 1) EGR Valve, EGR Cooler, EGR vacuum modulator, BVSV, and VSV. Any suggestions on where to source all of this? Thank you.

Post a few pictures of your driver's side engine bay area where most of your emissions equipment is and we can see what you are missing. Might help you start making a list?
Couple photos. Can see the crimped line

Thanks. Yes, new to CA and going to get it to pass. Thank you.do you know if you have the "J" pipe? it comes off the exhaust manifoldby the firewall and goes to the egr cooler
there may be more issues if the exhaust manifold horn is welded
the piece into the intake manifold, you'll need the entire piece as it bolts to the intake.
is this a new rig to CA?
are you trying to get it to pass smog?
Thanks. Yes, new to CA and going to get it to pass. Thank you.
new to CA and going to get it to pass.
yup, this is gospel. that certainly helped up here in the great white north when we had testingPro Tip:
When It’s time to smog test your vehicle, (and you don’t have confidence that it will pass) find a smog-test shop in the cheapest, worst part of town. The ghetto basically— and test it there.
Those shops are all too familiar will very old cars in their neighborhood that struggle to pass the tailpipe test - but seem to pass anyway.
When you find your shop, be a nice friendly guy to the technician who will test it - and don’t hang around when he’s testing it. Stay out of his sight. Don’t bug him.
It’s entirely up to the technician’s discretion to (‘accidentally’) overlook something or another if he chooses to.
It’s also a very good habit to always use the same smog-test shop every two years - and bring your last test report from them with you.
It helps them and shows loyalty which can be priceless when things get close to the edge.
Always always always drive the vehicle, preferably on the freeway, for at least 30 minutes before driving to the shop for your test - to get it all up to temperature, and don’t turn it off when you get there. Leave it idling until it gets tested.
