Smog elimination

Ok guys. I've got the egr block off plate and the MIL eliminator for doing this. I don't live in an emissions county so I'm good there. The reason I'm doing it is, all the vac lines were trash anyway. The charcoal filter isn't hooked either. What all can I eliminate? Anything that's hooked to intake vaccum?

I will take pics of my question areas when my phone charges if that will be of any help.

The pump, egr, plug the holes in the heads. And plug the tube that runs to the down pipe.

I removed my charcoal canister. But many dont lime to cause you will have extra fumes.

The heads can be plugged with a short 5/8 11 bolt.

For the down pipe you can cut the tube about 1/2" away. Then crease it and weld it closed. Or find something to cram in it that will stay good.

If you need a belt diagram let me know. And that's about all I got. Haha.

There were two of these. (looked like proprtioning valves or something to me.) That's where most of vac lines were bad. I've been fighting rich conditions. I'm still hunting, but I think this might explain it!

Lol! I understand man. I've just been fighting rich forever! My dad always says to keep it simple. I I just figured I'd hawk the dead vac lines, and try to sort it all out.

Anybody know what size bolt to plug the exhaust cross over holes in the back of the head with?

---------- Post added at 12:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:35 PM ----------

I was told 5/8-11 but it dosent seem like its the right threads per inch. Diameter is right but thread lead dosent want to line up.

Those threads are usually carboned up. If you can work a small round wire brush or something in there to clean them up it will help.

That's what I was just thinking. I got the bolts from the machine shop I work at, and I was starting to doubt our tooling and machine maintenance stockers...lol!

If you are unsure the thread count is correct, you can count the threads. There should be 11 threads per inch.
