Well today I finally got the damn truck to pass smog! I have been dealing with that for the past 2 months, so the rebuild of my truck had taken a back seat. But now that it finally passed ( main problem was the check engine light due to the tranny swap and the big tires were too big to fit the dyno so i need to get smaller ones) i can staart fixing the truck again.

I just got back from the metal shop with some 3/8's plate to plate the radius arms and then i need to put them under it! Then weld the crack in the frame, then fix the track bar mount, and lastly get some driveshafts made and I wil be ready to rock again! Man i can wait! Wich I had the money to do it all right now!

BTW did you know that for a smog check and the cert it costs 98.95 now in cali! That is for check only stations. I thought it was a little crazy! But i was too happy to care since i passed.

100 bucks for a smog test?! good god almighty! I'm so glad I live where there are no emission tests :goodfinge

Good news on the truck tho. I don't imagine you're going to take the Damon route, and max out your card, are you?

a check only station. That means if something is wrong with your junk they cannot tell you what is wrong nor can they fix it.

it is the same test but they charge more because the state requires you to go there when your number is pulled.

Frame craked behind te steering box, mainly due to the amount of pressure the trck bar was putting in that area. I have a totally diffferent way of doing the track bar this time, so it will not happen again.

And for those that dont remember what I did, the video is in my superford account.

They went to smog my truck-and 38's don't fit at all on the dyno. So they just tested my truck when it was idling-passed with flying colors. The fun part was seeing them try to use the dyno :histerica

Yeah, my 89 wouldn't pass smog and I didn't want to spend the $90 just to find that out. Plus it died out on me one too many times, that's why I got the F150 :brownbag

Emission test ?!?:shrug ?!? whats that? lol...

no really though... what is covered under that ive never really took the time to understand it beings i dont have to dick with it... i hear in vermont where, IN MY DREAMS, im moving soon they have to do that, each vehical is tested once a year.. you have to get a little sticker each year saying your good, and the DMV drive around and randomly pull people over to check it out...
i was just wonderin what all was covered in an emmisions check.
