1997 Chevy A.I.R injection obsolete. What to do?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My 7.4l motor has the A.I.R injection pump and the parts are obsolete. I did find a guy who rebuilds the pumps (400 freaking dollars!) but can't find the diverter valve ANYWHERE. WTH are you supposed to do?

1997 Chevy C3500

I'm looking for part 214-624  

Part Number: 214-624 
Description: Air Check Valve
AIR INJN REACTOR SYS(K19) ; 3 Holes ; 1 Per Veh
Emissions and Air Pump Parts

Also, a supercharger system if you got one laying around? lol..

If the part is unavailable, the vehicle may be eligible for a Limited PartsExemption and must be inspected at areferee center. ... Referee centers can certify vehicles labeled as gross polluters, which are those vehicles that fail a Smog Check inspection at two times the pass/fail standard.

Local junkyard told me they couldn't sell it!??

Keep trying the local junk yards (Otay area). There's always a guy that knows a guy that knows a guy. Funny thing is I was just there today looking for same style truck but different parts, saw a bunch.

I believe the manufacturers and the EPA want you to buy a new cleaner burning truck. 

I had a 2000 GMC with a 6.0 with relatively low miles for a 19 year old vehicle, it had leather and all of the bells and whistles they offered in 2000. One day I got a wild hair up my ass and  went out and bought a brand new one, a Ford F-250  diesel no less. It was a lot of money and the payment sucks but I like it, it's bad ass. You don't know what you are missing until you buy one. 

:omg:

This is my midlife crisis truck. OBS crew cab, cowboy caddy. Put all new interior, new sound system, lift, tires, going to put a supercharger on it and finish it off with a badazz paint job.  I have a newer Tundra, Tahoe, qx60, and royal body Silverado work truck, but something about this truck makes me smile when I drive it.

Because that's a smog part primarily only required in this backwards idiot state with $4/gallon gasoline.  Not many will put up with ye olde 454 that haven't ripped that POS off no mo'. :bigrin

We still do, DMV just hasn't updated this requirement.  Because they're arseholios.

Pick a part?  If so, just call it something, anything, else.

Actually, might head to LKQ this weekend.  I'll keep an eye out.

You guys still have that bullshit in PHX.  We don't have smog in backwards hot ass places like El Centro (or, in your case, Tucson) too.  :bigrin

That would work, but I'm not sure how the diverter works? Could it be that simple?

Hell, I could epoxy one underneath the valve itself, you only see the top!
