    If I remove them from an '84 K30 with a 454, whats the stuff worth? Especially to the Cali guys.

    I'm thinking about removing the hoses, lines, pump and bracket to sell to someone who needs this stuff to pass emissions in Cali. I won't be removing the exhaust manifolds but plugging those holes shut.

    What is the going rate for this stuff, used, in the parts swapping world?

    Not enough value to make it worth your while, in my opinion.

    Those items don't have much demand, and if someone does need something like that it's pretty easy to find in CA junkyards.

    There are other states with draconian emissions laws besides CA and worse weather (more rust/decomposition) and less junkyards (think east coast).

    You'd be hard pressed to get $50.00 shipped for a complete AIR system.

    I figured they'd go for more since a lot of guys are looking for the smog pump bracket itself.

    What about eBay? More or less?

    Here in California all that smog crap is readily available at the junk yards for cheap.
