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.
