The smog gear was removed a long time ago by some previous owner of my car.
There's nothing left of it now and I wouldn't have even considered installing
A/C if the A.I.R. hardware was still in the car...Bill

Yes, I remember my 1969 Monza that ran terribly : pinging and knocking, horrible
gas mileage and worse performance, until I ripped out the smog equipment !
Without the smog equipment, mileage went to over 30 MPG, and performance was
what you would expect from a 140 4-speed !
OK, not stock, but ...
What a difference !!!!!!
