Re: SoCal checkin' in

When's the last time it's had a real tune-up? Not the typical look around and think everything looks ok, a real tune-up. New plugs, wires, cap rotor, check for correct vac and mechanical advance operation. Carb rebuild and dial in. Those sixes are just about bullet proof. Have you done a leak down test?

As for an engine swap you need to go to the California DMV site and read up on engine swaps. I think you'll soon find out your best and most economical bet for an early smogger is to rebuild your six or get another six to replace it.
