ok i am thinking about buying this 78 bronco with california emissions on it, what would i need to destroy and hide so the emissions department of alaska doesnt know it was a california bronco? i know the obvious like pump, headers and other hardware like that related to cqali emissions package, but what can tell them its a cali?

vin decode

what are the vin engine codes? far as i know there wasent one for cali emissions, just for different size engines. S for the 6.6 400 2 barel and H for the 5.8 351 M 2 barel, those are the only ones i thought existed.

Ray

anyone have a link to a 78 bronco vin decoder?

find a federal valve cover, then the only thing you need is a working EGR system.

I think you will need a 1/2" plug. But use the one you need a socket wrench extension to put in. (Square drive) It will be easier to hide.
