Welp, finally got the Elky passed emissions yesterday evening...only had to change the oil, plugs, wires, coil and rebuild the carb. Changed the secondaries to mechanical and pulled a few vacuum lines off, sure is a whole lot more fun to drive now. I'm sure I realize better milage if I could stay off the go pedal :lol:

The bad news is looks like the cam may be toast, but with 150K,I guess that's to be expected eventually. #8 doesn't fire very hot, it does have great pressure...just feels like it's dead.

Time to save for that ZZ4!

Congratulation!! :D

I've got to get my 87 inspected this year too. Here, we get an emissions and a safety inspection. I'm fairly confident it should pass without any problems.

The ZZ4 should put a smile on your face.

I'm soooooooooo glad I don't have to worry about emissions/inspections here! What a PITA it must be
It's not too much of a PITA if your friend is the one doing the inspection. :wink:

I just got home from Detroit. While I was there some guys told me that Michigan used to have emissions testing but not any more. Is that true?
