Is there an emission manual for that year? That is going to be the easiest way to understand what you are missing and how it works. Just break it down into sub-components and you'll eventually get there.

The Haynes manual really covers 77 pretty well

I guess I need to check my library more often. Found this in the stack.

I also have the Haynes manual. You're welcome to borrow either one if you like.

I think Sascha's fj40 is the closest one to firetacoma's that we have in the club. 77 definitely has some differences with 76, though big things like the air pump and EGR are the same

Awesome Matt!

I'm in Gunbarrel so probably really close.

I picked up a Haynes manual and have a used smog pump coming to me. Still trying to find the abv and air rail.

I got my temp plates now so I am in the 60 day window! Dun dun dun.

Stupid question maybe... Why couldn't I just get the emissions junk for a 78? Everything for the computer on.

Or a 76 for that matter, since it's a much simpler design. Is there a reason I'm overlooking that this wouldn't work?

Welcome.


Have you tried just taking it in for an emissions test as is? It all depends on luck, but often, the person who opens the hood won't even know what they are looking at on an older vehicle, and if it blows clean, you'll pass. Worth a try before you start spending tome/money on all those parts.

^^^^ I'd second this. Furthermore, I'd also throw out using a friend's address that lives in Park or Clear Creek County where there is no smog regulations & only 2.8% tax
