Hey Tom sorry took so long to get back with you. for that year it is in the top of each manifold. hope this helps.
When did it change from straight into the cat? I know in 1976 it was cat based. Thanks
That i cannot answer, i believe also it mattered if it was california or federal emissions
Then i believe that it should have had manifold tubes and also a convertor tube
ill see if i can find some hard evidence
That would be great. If you could maybe send a pic of the pump mount and hoses?
ILL see what i can do
Great. Thank you
So far you are right. All I can find is that the pump goes to the converter. I will opt out and see if another expert knows off the top what type it used. If I find something I will come back to you. I won't give up. But I figure the note experts they can see your question the better chances you have at getting a answer. So please don't respond or it will lock you back to me and others won't see your post. Lou P.
Let me see what I can do for you, which engine is in the el camino
Hello, it is a 350
I found the diagram that is associated with the engine you have, it is routed to the passenger side exhaust manifold on your vehicle.
I hope that helps
The diagrams you show are strictly vacuum diagrams. They do not show any output from the smog pump.
The efe valve is located on the exhaust manifold. On the passenger side of the engine.
I'm sorry Joseph but you are not answering my question.
On your specific year and model it shows the air pump is returning to the passenger exhaust manifold, it looks like on cal emissions it changed to this in 77. From what I can see. Pulled some parts lists and they show the same.
So there is no AIR pumped into the driver's side exhaust manifold?
From what I see only on the passenger side, but I can opt out and we can see if another expert has more information.
Hello yes it had tubes in both manifolds with cross over hose from the pump Thanks Joey you check to see if www.obsoleatchevrolet.com has those parts
oh , by the way I think I have both manifolds in my warehouse ive got gm back to like 1964 impala SS
