change everything from the air filter to the oil.airon23 said:I can't seem to get the 60 to pass smog. I don't know what is making it run so rich. Is there any suggestions out there? Is there a common problem I am not aware of with these things.
95 psi is kinda low - what altitude are you at? You could be burning enough oil to impact the numbers.airon23 said:Sorry guys. Engine is 2f, year is 81, new wires and plugs, all compression at or around 95, no real mods done to engine, 93,000 miles.

I have sheet in front of me now any questions?
In TX, you can do the waiver, and the cost is $300 the first year spent on smog fixing, and you can only drive the vehicle 3000 miles that year. The next year, the requirements go way up, and you have to spend $1500 (or more - I think it's more) and you still have to only drive 3000 miles.sl33py said:i think you can get it (carb) rebuilt for ~200.00 at a local shop. if not less in your area (seattle is expensive). Also, maybe look at your intake/exh manifolds - those could make a diff (did for me). Have you had the valves adjusted?
Does NV have an exception available? I did the 150.00 worth of repairs to waive my smog here - make sure the shop is state certified to apply $$ towards the waiver.
