I have a thermactor tube installed on my 315m just behind the the dizzy. It has a valve of some sort where the rubber hose connects to it. My problem is that the valve is so corroded and rusted that the valve practicaly works like a cap for the tube. Has any one every changed these tube assemblys out. I also noticed a 351m in the junk yard with this hole in the manifold pluged. Could I just remove the tube install a plag and get rid of the smog sys. I found a good replacement tube in the junk yard but it was a bitch to get off. I didnt have a braker bar or any wd40. So I had to leave it. James :banghead

Do you still have a functioning A.I.R pump? If not, then removing the tube in the intake and plugging the hole is not going to affect anything. IF you pump is still good then you woould ahve to remove the belt from that..or remove the pump altogether.
