I'm taking the vacuum line diverter valves and all of that out. I am also removing the heater hoses as they are routed more directly without AC.

The computer will stay as is until later this year when i do the interior work. Then it will come out.

i gotcha. it took around 2 hours of painstaking wire tracing to ensure proper removal...i was much less careful with the vacuum lines. are you using a motorcraft? there are also two vacuum switches on the passenger fender that can come out as they aren't used if the compute is inactive or out. if you need diagrams or pictures i can help

No computer in mine. It IS (was) a Canadian car! Likely interior of BC since there is no rust on it. I'll take a better pic of the emission tag later. When I adjusted the shifter linkage I found out the cat wasn't OEM and the feed pipe to the cat was just there for show (I removed it in pieces as the cat inlet was still capped) and left the manifold AIR injection alone (for now)

It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

I'll take whatever you've got when it comes to that! Thanks.

Canadian Eagles have no cat converters.
They did from the factory. They may have rotted off soon after though  :rotfl:

Nope. Not even from the factory. No cats on Canadian Eagles.

I think the early Canadian model years did not have them, but I think they were added during one of the model years.

Maybe mine was installed to meet US emissions coming in? E test is required here

For purposes of this discussion its probably important to diferentiate between cars that were manufactured in Canada vs. those that were delivered to Canada

I'm at the point where I will be putting the engine back together soon and running new hoses and all that. When I'm done, I'll take a picture and post the before and after so everyone can see what is involved. I intended to do a write-up but it was too much to take pictures while taking things apart since they were so greasy and dirty.

I think before/after pics and a picture of the removed components laid out will give a good idea of what it takes.
