Couple Questions On My 79 5.0

  1. 1. How do I tell if the car has California emissions?
    2. If it is Cali emission how can I delete it?
    3. How do I go about deleting the egr setup on the car?
  2. She's not getting the fuel captain! Check fuel pressure with an inline gauge. Look for about 5-7psi. Fuel filter plugged or pump pooped. Let me know what you find. Also bad fuel would do it. But its fuel.
  3. Maybe whack the top of the carb with a rubber mallet while it is running. Could be a stuck float but it isn't smoking so I doubt it. Timing chain jumped? I doubt it but hey check timing could show it. I'm still saying fuel.
  4. Fuel filter is new aswell it was fine and drive able for a few days it had 3/4tank of fresh 89oct gas... Pulled carb to find lil varnish in the jets so I cleaned the entire carb out an it was good for a few days again then one morning I wake up to this... Carb is still clean and I've added fuel cleaner and varnish remover to the tank
  5. It does smoke a bit now mostly out of the CCv and exhaust
  6. Working on getting a timing light to check it
  7. Will be installing an fpr this weekend
