Emissions Testing
A mechanic freind of mine had a carburated truck come into the shop that could not pass emissions. He got to checking out the truck and found that the factory air pump for the emissions system was missing other than that the truck was mechanically sound. The mechanic hooked up a hydrogen cell that he had on his bench and took the truck back thru emissions and it passed.

I just found this interesting and thought I would share it.

One little tiny problem with that story. The inspection stations do a visual check for the presents of all emission equipment and that it is hooked up correctly and in working order.

In Tennessee our stations only check for the presence of a cat in the exhaust and the gas cap seal. Pre-OBDII vehicles get the tail pipe probe test to check the exhaust.
