    I just imported a California 1985 FJ60 and I'm trying to figure out the emission codes on the VECI sticker on the inner fender.I don't have the emission FSM yet. Is there a list somewhere that I can decode this with? Being a diesel canuck this is all new to me. I've figured out
    AI- air injection
    EGR-exhaust gas recirc
    OC-Oxidation catalyst? is that the catalytic converter?
    what is evap family? mine says EV-F
    what is engine family? mine is FTY 4.2T2AFF5 4.2 is litres displacement I guess but what is the rest.
    After looking at the mess of spaghetti under the hood I'm thinking about pulling all the emission stuff , should I ?? pete

    Evap family is an internal designator for what evap system is on the truck. Yours is equipped with evap type F.

    Same w/ engine family. It can be decoded by somebody in Japan to tell which carb, distributor, T-stat, manifolds, etc. went into the engine to make it compliant w/ some market requirement somewhere in the world.

    Don't go removing every vac hose on the engine, 'cause about half of them are beneficial or required for proper operation.
