HA! OK guys! I just took it wrong! I had a tough day……..followed by my wife and I having a tough time putting our 3 kids to bed tonight. I am tired. I took it all wrong. Sorry.

Rover4X4 - No hard feelings at all! I just needed to be educated on proper Defender 90 talk!

And I thought my truck was running GREAT. But it obviously could be running even better, as the failed test shows.

Regardless of the emissions test - I will get it tuned up. Promise

Update that I have been meaning to write:

1) My vehicle (as of Jan 3rd) is historic. Anyone who lives in a state where 20 years is the cut off, should do this when their year comes up!

2) I sent back my test form, and I reported to Emissions that my vehicle was historic.

3) It has been a few months - have gotten no further request for re-taking Emissions

4) My Truck spent many more months then I thought parked at my parents house, while we were undergoing construction at my house.

5) Now that I have the truck BACK - The truck is really running GREAT! However, I will still work on that tune up! I am sure it could be running even better!

You can be sure that if it is overdue you will get a suspension notice, so you must be OK

I just went thru something similar about 6 months ago in VA. A tune-up and new O2 sensors made my '95 RRC even happier. My CO2 reading went from an initial 3.82 to 1.9 after driving for an hour, then after new O2 sensors and a basic tune-up, it was down below 0.2. My RRC is a happy old girl now.


VA still requires that cars are older than 25 years as of 1 Jan of the current calendar year in order to get the antique plates, though you apparently have two options in terms of usage, which includes daily usage. However, with daily usage, you have the same inspection requirements of a normal tag.

Years ago. I buily and installed a special 3.0 liter hybrid 4 cylinder GM crossflow engine in a 110 that originally had a 2.25 gas engine.
The owner lives in MD and had to undergo emissions testing.
The engine was carbureted.
Installed a catalytic converter.
It passed MD emissions testing.
This was a 1984, so am not sure how strict the standards get, but if you installed an extra catalytic converter, or replaced your stock ones would that pass or help pass?
