1981 BBD non feedback emissions delete
« on: October 02, 2012, 06:17:50 PM »
Hey guys
       I am going to be doing a little side work for Garyeagle, he has an 81 Eagle limited with a 258 Its all original. As all of you can understand after 30 years a lot of the vacuum lines on the vehicle are brittle and leaking. I would like to remove all of the unnecessary emissions equipment (except the catalytic converter) It is a stock 258 with the non feed back carter carburetor. Any suggestions or diagrams would be appreciated.  
I Don't know why. But everybody's always talking about their STI or That guys EVO, I think I'll stick with my old, but reliable AmC. Did I ever tell you I was Full blooded Eagle?

thanks Mernsy

I have a question is this a 5 port Vacuum switch using only 3 ports? Are 2 of the ports spliced?

You may be able to see what I did in these pics. http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y209/carnuck/AMC%20Eagle/
FOR SALE
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. 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 too have an 81 with the old fashioned smog pump instead of the pulse air system...which I wasnt a big fan of either. I got one of gronks motorcraft conversions and love it. I got a lot more power and it got rid of probably a dozen vacuum lines.

I had both AIR and pulse systems in mine (someone grafted it together because the VIN says it didn't come with a cat)

He is not looking to go for a different carb, he just wants to cleanup the engine bay.

That's what I did. The non-compu BBD doesn't have as many problems as the compu version
