Wondering if anyone on this site can help me with information on gathering all the smog hoses and decals for passing California Smog. There are several decals, and i need to buy the correct one. This is where i am starting. I also put in a new 305ci motor, and i need to buy all the hoses, ect. Any information would be very appreciated. Basically the decal will tell me how many hoses i need.
I have a 305ci, with a 700R4 4 speed automatic, 4 barrel Edelbrock carburetor, smog legal headers. i will be adding AC also.
I also added a new exhaust system with the Catalytic Converter. Advice necessary, thank you.

Try OPGI since they are in Peoples Republic Kaliforna. But anyone selling Elky/Monte resto parts should have them.

Is that carb legal in California? The original would have been a feedback carb interfaced with the computer

Well i do have the original Quadrajet, but that one should have all the ports necessary. Also you can add parts which are available for online order to make it like the old one.

It's not a matter of having all the ports. The original carburetor was feedback controlled by a computer in the right side kick panel. It utilized a computer controlled mixture control solenoid and had an integral tps. The Edelbrock carburetor has neither. Eliminating the tps can affect ignition timing as well as it too is controlled by the computer. How are you getting it through the smog checks?

I don't see a vacuum advance on the distributor. Of course it could be hiding. The original motor as mentioned used the CC QJet and also controlled timing, had an air pump and an EGR valve. I see the tubes, but where is the rest? When I used to live in an emissions controlled state all that had to be there too. You "can't" run that motor with the CC distributor. It won't do it's job properly. It will start and run, but that's about as good as it gets. I suggest swapping the correct carb onto it, putting in the ECM and getting the emissions stuff in place. Swap it out after you pass inspection if you are so inclined.
