  1. ezlnh8u - all 1976 and newer automobiles in California need to pass California Emmissions standards. In California, passing a certified smog test will occur every other year when you have to re-register your car.
  2. I wanted to Thank everyone for their input. I've spent hours reading similar posts I realized the PO had installed a non-smog exhaust manifold. Luckily I'm really close to good '02 part resources in Northern California. Looks like I have most of the other hard-to-find parts with the exceptions of hoses, tubes, nuts and bolts. This project has rekindled a desire to start working on cars again (30+ year hiatus) and I've had to make several trips to Sears and Harbor Freight for tools I once had, but have since disappeared. Since this car was in pieces when I first bought her, I've taken "conkitchen's" strategy with ensuring the car is fully tuned with all of the necessary smog parts installed. I've restored almost a dozen cars in my past, but it's been years since I've wrenched like this. Having a great time with this car....frustrating at times, but this website has been a great resource for this DIY project. The only thing I wish I had more of is time... Thanks again!
  3. Hi All, First time posting. First and foremost Thanks to all of those who posted to this forum; all great information that has helped me become familiar with a car that I've wanted for so long. This is my first 2002 and I plan to make this into a daily driver, but it needs to be smogged (familiar subject on this forum). I believe I have all of the smog required parts; air pump, EGR valve, etc (big assumption)....and more. I've scoured the forums to see "how" the smog equipment is configured/installed in the 1976 models and I've found nothing. I've read the diagrams and they're helpful, but if someone has photo(s) of their '76 with the smog equipment installed or point me to a URL with the same I'd really appreciate it. It'll help me understand how the belts and pumps are supposed to be correctly installed and configured. Also, if anyone has pictures of their factory air conditioning pump installed (engine compartment) I'd appreciate it as well. Thx! Here's what I know about the car; -New crate motor -New clutch and flywheel -Came with new 32/36 Weber carb -has factory airconditioning (pump not installed) Here's what I've done so far: -Adjusted all of the valves, rechecked head bolts -New valve cover gasket -New alternator (to be installed today) -replaced rear tail light (cracked) -Installed new license plate lights. -Installed a used Bosch distributor with new o-ring, coil, points, rotor, cap, plugs and wires. -Installed an electric fuel pump w/relay and kill switch -replaced most of the vacuum hoses in engine compartment. -Installing new HID lights ....and more on the project list.
