View Full Version : Mama of three needs your help.

09-14-2009, 11:13 AM
My 60s smog pump went out again. I'm not going to go into some bleeding heart story, but I'm a single Mom of three that has been laid off, and The 60 is our daily driver. I have ordered the pump. I just need help putting it on.

Thank you some much for any kind of help! :bowdown: I will provide the beer and grubb!

Where you are located?

Ouch! 60 smog pumps are $$. I had to replace mine about a year ago. It's an easy job to swap one in. Where is your 60 located?

One of the members here decided he could not help. :( So I'm still looking to find a way to bypass the smog or get a new one on. HELP! PLEASE!!!

Sounds like she has a new pump ready to go, but needs help installing it...

I'd be up for helping but I've never worked on a 60 before so would need direction - i.e. a primary mechanic and I could be a parts/tool gopher :) - Any 60 owners (or better mechanics than I) down south that could help out?

Well if you do need help installing it let me know. They're fairly straight forward swap with no electrical to mess with. If th PS pump leaks, it'll be a very messy process.

I just spoke to her on the phone. She is trying to get some info from C-Dan about some sort of replacement "idler' or "pully" for the pump.

As soon as she has more info she will post up.

FYI, she is located over in Ken Caryl area.
