Testing EGR function:fyton2v said:It's a '78 with a stock 2F.
Any tips on how to tell if EGR is working? Also, I found an exhaust leak between the exhuast manifold and intake manifold (at the gasket in-between). Would this make things worse?
I didn't know CA would pay would help pay for this. Good advice.
I'm not trying to be disgreeable, but this just isn't true. Catalysts help reduce emissions, but they don't do miracles. There are lots of vehicles out there with good catalysts that don't pass.Atlas43 said:installing a new Cat will get any vehicle to pass the tailpipe test. .....

I've already started stripping down the tub. I'll document the process for posterity.
You are correct. No more 30 year and older exemption.fyton2v said:I hope to finish before the end of the summer.... in 2010.
You have to be careful in CA regarding smog exemption. I don't think any vehicle newer than 1975 will get the exemption. I thought that it was a rolling 30 year thing, but I think that is stopping this year.
