Stuck On Smog Removal


Recommended Posts

Ok, Done the search, but have not found answers to my spacific situation. Car is a 76 2002. Some of the smog equiptment had been removed by PO leaving a mess of haning wires with nowhere to go. I have attached two pics. First is some sort of air filter/canister. There is an inlet pipe that is in the center. Unhook that and follow the remaining line into the firewall...where does it go from there? Does it need to be capped off? Completely removed? Next is a mess of wires on the drivers side firewall. Following the blue loom of wires from the positive side of the coil (marked with 15) I removed all the nipple looking things, various vacume lines onto manifold/carb, end up at the fire wall. the wire loom splits into two here. 4 wires look like the ground to a screw that is holding a little silver box marked Bosch 0335530006, the rest dive into the firewall. which ones do i take out and do away with? If it makes any difference, Im going with a manifold from a non smog 69 2002 and a weber 38. Electric or manual choke. Thanks for the help...posted some pics

The charcoal canister (large cylindrical object on the left inner fender, with the perforated end, your and buckeye's second pictures) can be deleted but it does no harm to leave it in.  If deleted, run the evaporative pipe that connects to it, to the air filter.


The relays shown in buckeye's third and fifth pics hang on the firewall and can be deleted with the silver box.  Not sure the location and function of the pair of relays in the fourth pic, looks like under the wiper reservoir?  Some one else can chime in.  I just desmogged my '76 and have not removed the wires yet.  They are coiled messily on the left inner fender for now.

perfect. I grew a pair and yanked it all out. I Think I got it all...kind of intimidating until I found somewhere that said it all just unplugs..sure enough if you follow it from the coil to the fuse box and yank out everything that is connected to that harness, it comes right out.
