    Removing smog equipment on 68 472

    I would like to remove all the smog crap from my 68 472. I bought a new Edlebrock manifold so that takes care rats nest on top, what I'm stumped on here is the tube comes out of both heads & runs along the front of the motor. Can I just remove this tube & plug the holes off ?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hellbilly04.

    You still have an AIR pump hooked up? The tubes go to that. Yes, you cna remove them and plug with freeze plugs.

    Your AIR pump is also your belt tensioner. There is some pully modification needed. Check this thread on the subject.
