Current bid of almost 22k? That seems nuts for the work most likely needed.

It would probably be a decent ride with a little work, but it's a '97.

That means emissions, which kind of takes a little bit of the fun out of owning an old tinfoil tractor.

Cheers,

Kennith

Not sure how a year affects emissions. Everywhere I have lived it just depended on the county regulations.

Not here. They only test OBDII vehicles. So my 94 D1 is exempt. I understand what Kennith is saying. Keeping old vehicles up to current emissions standards can be a real pain.
Being emissions exempt means if I want to lose the catalytic converters, I can. If I want to throw in a Mercedes diesel or carbureted chevy motor, I can and I won't have worry about not passing emissions.

If it doesn't have an OBD2 port then it's more or less exempt in most places.

Huh. Never heard that before. Would expect emissions on West Coast and New England states despite of the year. Even some counties in VA didnt have those, unless you were closer to DC.

They used to put your vehicle on the "treadmill" here and measure the actual emissions from the tail pipe. There were issues with peoples car transmissions getting ruined. Now they just hook up to the OBDII port and fail you for ANY code you have, whether its emissions related or not.
They're real finicky about hooking up to the OBDII port, too. On my 96 D1 I had removed the plastic covering below the steering wheel and just had the port tucked in the trans tunnel. I pulled it out so they could hook to it and they refused because the "OBDII port was not secure and someone could trip over their cable and cause damage to my vehicle". I had to use four zip ties to secure it before they would hook to it.

OK, no emissions testing here, so it's not something I'm familiar with.

Spark plug non-foulers are handy for keeping these old dinosaurs on the road.

Have you found one that fits a D1 O2 thread? I haven't....

those work well for a code reading that the cats are bad. it offsets the oxy sensors just out of the exhaust stream to change the reading.

76 and newer gets tested in my area. They don't do a tread mill on the older ones but they test and you can fail pretty easily. Good paying job if you like to not really work and be treated like an expert of nothing.

Such a damn racket; emissions and other stuff. Got a buddy in CA w a lifted Jeep and a bunch of other tuff. He was told he'd have to more or less go back to stock in order to register it.

I failed a smog test in Georgia for the OBD port not being secured but those dipshits were the ones that broke it! I used my scanner that same morning to check for codes before the smog test and it wasn't broken then. Luckily the OBD port snapped back into place but I had to come back the next day because you had to retest after 24 hours. Jeez...
But it passed though.

Crazy, on my D1 I experienced the same inspection-guy/dangling-OBD2-plug conundrum!

I'm liking those plug non-foulers though! In the future they may persuade me to consider a 96+ LR. At present I'm more than pleased with my '95 14cux OBD1 LWB.

Has anyone found non-foulers that will fit a D1?

14mm: Dorman 42000 or 42004. Might have to drill out center.

12mm: Have some made or buy and modify Lisle 20540.

Here in NC (I think it is still) anything 1995 or before only needs a safety inspection. They cost less than the full inspection and they basically check if it has seat belts and working headlamps.
