I'm interested in your CA smog test results. I registered mine in AZ since I split time there and CA. I figured my 77 originally purchased in Illinois wouldn't pass smog test in CA.

I got NO results because of the two dead cylinders. He couldn't even do the test.

However, I did learn that my vehicle falls under the Federal guidelines for what smog equipment is required on it. It's very simple according to the smog guy. All that is needed is the PCV and the thermostatic air cleaner. The air injection pump and the other California specific stuff isn't required since the vehicle was originally sold outside of California.

I'm stuck on what to do next with this coach. I thought I might figure out what's wrong with the engine by removing the left head (#5 and #7 are the dead cylinders). However, I found nothing obvious, so the project is dead in the water. I'm trying to sell "as is, where is" for practically nothing, but no one is willing to buy and put money into the engine. I hope it doesn't come down to selling it to the recycling yard.

Yeah, don't know what I'd do if in the same situation. Might look for a used engine from car-parts.com and find someone on Craigslist to install. Only thing I keep thinking is this is one of the few classic motorhome that won't rust, rot or develop the saggy roof syndrome; which is why people trick them out. It's also a very convenient mid-size rig that is is meant to be driven. Good luck which ever way you go.

I suspect there's a plot of land available for not a lot of investment in Mineral County or White Pine county that would have very nice view from your vehicle's new home. Only a few counties in Nevada require smog tests. But Nevada does have property tax on vehicles. You'd be surprised how short the wait time is in those DMV offices too. Don't you want to take a nice drive to the country?
