If it is still pumping, then yes there is likely to be a problem if you just block it off.
It may build up excess pressure and blow the hose apart or lock up the pump and burn up the belt.

Re: Smog pump.

I am guessing where you are located their are no emissions testing? I was stationed in Little Rock a lonnnngggg time ago and frequently visited your home state! You can eliminate the smog pump if that is so.....many companies make the elimination kit that retains your original belt length, UPR makes one......

This is a pic Trojan horse posted on one of my threads about deleting the smog pump for my car...
You can just bypass the pump with a shorter belt...

+1, I bypassed mine and took the dead weight out. Have to cap the tube to the back of the heads off.

The less restrictions on the motor the less amount of power being robbed.I wouldn't give power steering for a d/d and the ac really only robs power when its running.some people even go to electric water pumps.and lots of people toss the smog.

So should I just toss the smog pump and get the shorter belt or should I keep it??

If it works I can use it for a crankcase evacuation pump.

Yes & No, it is to pull a vaccum on the crankcase, which is especially useful in SC & TC applications.
Helps eveything seal up better including your rings and keeps you from leaking oil all over.
With a SC/TC you can actually have positive pressure in the crankcase which is definitely not a desirable condition.

Ever seen a car push smoke/oil vapor out of a valve cover breather?
It is usually caused by bad ring seal from worn out or damaged rings.
Compression leaking past the bad piston rings and pressurizing the crankcase is most commonly the cause.
