hi guys, I am looking to delete the emissions system as the pump is seized and useless. How can I go about doing this task? Also, I don't need to do emissions testing as I reside in NH

You could simply hollow out and gut the pump and then remount it. I've seen that done on other vehicle pumps but I'm not sure you can do it with this one.

Or you might could simply get a much shorter drive belt for it that bypasses making it spin at all.

I have an 85 4.3 Conquista & i just took the belt off because my motor stopped spinning and melted my belt. The car will run perfectly fine without it attached since its a single belt attached from the fan to the emissions motor.
