I have a question about my 1979 Ford F150 and I was wondering
if anyone can help. The truck has a 360 out of a 1973 F250 and
I was wondering if I still needed a cataitic converter sense I have
an older motor? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Vehicle Model Year Exemptions: Vehicles 26 years and older are exempted from the emissions testing requirement. In 2006, the program tests most even year vehicles 1982 and newer, as well as vehicles undergoing a title change model years 1981 and newer.
I would say you don't need it because you don't have to pass an emissions test.
If you just wanted to keep your truck original, I've always believed that changing the motor didn't matter, the law deals with the truck,not the components. But they are right, it probably doesn't matter.
