1972 wagon and I have emissions questions.
« on: January 15, 2012, 03:37:54 PM »
Ok, so I have pulled the carb for rebuild and I am curious which emissions controls I can do without. Do I really need to keep the decel valve? If not, do I just cap it? Will it cause issues for the manifold? Help me please!
Thanks!!

No problem with capping the decel...ran mine that way for years. The automatic '72 I had, did not come with decel. JT
