Well I found the restrictor that I was needing. JK Automotive in Englewood is apparently the only one in the whole state of Colorado that has these little gems. They look like a throwing star with a hole in it and are made of spring steel. You basically insert it into the Filler Neck through the Gas Cap Opening and then wedge it into place. The spring steel drives the points of the restrictor into the Filler Neck. With this in place I will be heading down to the Castle Rock inspection station in the morning. Hopefully I will meet up with success.

Good luck!

Yeah it passed! Now onto the DMV. See you at the February meeting if I get back from Washington in time. Thanks for the help.

That's too bad. An original 1978 with the factory 2F does not need a restrictor or a cat, they weren't required until 1979. Glad you got passed though, congrats!

I was told otherwise, and it was checked every year on the e-test of my 6/78 FJ40 - no cats, but restrictors are required and checked. The little book of 'what's supposed to be on your truck' showed restrictors. The PO even replaced the filler neck with a new one (to get a restrictor) and hammered one of those 'replacement restrictors' into the neck of the ConFerr tank.

Now that the Dems have taken over Colorado politics, I wouldn't ditch all your emission stuff just yet (those of us in El Paso and a few other counties). I'm sure some liberal will find an excuse (other than clean air) to reinstate the e-tests around here - job security for mom-and-pop repair shops, for instance.
