    I have a real nice 76 C-20 I picked up about 6 months ago with one problem. It has a junkyard motor in it (I have a new 350) and I have no ideal what it came out of it looks like the emmisions have been mixed and matched. I need to know if a 76 C-20 with a 350 is supposed to have an EGR valve? It makes no diffrence to me since I have several intakes I just want to put on the right one first.
    Oh and this is a California truck. I have also heard that 3/4 trucks back then didn't have as much smog on them such as an EGR valve.

    Don't know if this helps or not, but my 75 and my dads 77 don't have EGR valves. I'm not positive, but I don't think those were installed until like 78 or 79 /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I had a federal emission 76 blazer that did not use an EGR.

    Found out it is a heavy duty model so no EGR is needed /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
