Hello all,

I've been working tirelessly to get my Bronco street worthy for California state. This all started because the rebuild was up to par for another state but I unfortunately moved to the worst state for classic cars dated after 1975... I'm very dedicated to the education, labor, and expense of getting this done. Though, I will be getting a full inspection by my trusted mechanic once I've taken it as far as I can to be sure it has his stamp of approval.

178875


THE PROBLEM:
A while back we had the 302 professionally rebuilt with a .30 over bore and the C6 overhauled. The vehicle was running a little rich since we didn't restore some emissions parts (egr and smog pump). Now that I live in California and want proper smog certification I need to replace the intake manifold, carburetor, the EGR system, exhaust manifold, other emissions parts.

SO FAR:
I've obtained a EOM intake manifold, exhaust manifold, 2150 2-barrell carb, egr spacer, egr valve, and smog pump. Before I began this endeavor I located the 1984 for light truck manuals, emissions testing guide, USB for the C6 transmission, but they are a little indirect when discussing vacuum setups...

PROBLEM:
This weekend I'm taking the leap to swap the parts I have and unfortunately won't be able to drive it with my out of state plates until everything is complete. Here is what I'm stuck on.

1 EGR System
While I have an OEM EGR Valve that connects to the spacer I'm not confident in the rest of the setup and want additional material to read before moving forward. My Vaccum diagrams show the EGR from the spacer to a VCV but I know there is more to this entire system I'm unaware of.

2 SMOG PUMP
Im having a hell of a time finding the OEM lines that mount behind the engine. All other parts have been found.

3 AIR INLET
I've restored an air inlet but there are is a heat shroud for the hot air tube and the fresh air pickup that connects to the duct and valve assembally. I am unable to find either of these parts to purchase.


Any help is appreciated. I am dedicated to this project and very patient as to not make any large mistakes.

Not much help as I don't know much about the egr stuff and California regulations but I love the color on your rig. And your rig in general

Nice bullnose... Can't you avoid any of Cali's ridiculous regulations if you get classic plates?

I used Dorman part #96024 for manifold to air cleaner on my 351W. I have seen a generic kit that includes a piece to clamp onto the exhaust manifold. I couldn’t find a part number for it just now though.

Unfortunately you can get classic plates unless your 1975 or older here. I need to figure out how to pass an exhaust reader test in order to register is this micro managed state. The EGR recycles emissions back into the engine so it's definitely nessesary..

I live in CA and have a 1984 Bronco. Fords sold in CA at the time were equipped with feedback carbs/emission systems which barely worked when new let alone 37 years later. The system consists of about 10 miles of vacuum lines 15 miles of wiring and a crude computer controlled carburetor. I couldn't get the truck running with this system so I ripped all that crap out and converted to Dura-spark II and it ran perfect BUT two different smog shops refused to test it without the original system in place.
Since your truck was originally equipped without the feedback system hopefully they might smog it, you might want to find out before you even take it in. You are probably are going to have to take it to a STAR certified smog check place, they scrutinize every square inch of the emission system, CA effort to get rid of these older vehicles.
Good Luck
