Re: Emissions Question-1963 Willys
re: ca... yes, and no. I believe that officially, one is supposed to keep the old emissions stuff working, or if a newer engine is installed, the newer engine emissions stuff must also be used. But, in ca, there is no inspection for 73-or-older vehicles. The reality is, we can do whatever we want. But, there is such a thing as getting caught. Someone can turn you in, on the 'cut-smog' tattle-tale program, or if they see your vehicle visibly smoking. And, there has been talk about random road-side checks, which are not currently in effect. There is a whole bunch of us that are currently enjoying 'doing-our-own-thing' under the hood, on older vehicles.
