Is everything new on the car, in terms of plugs, points, etc.? Once past (&
passed) the test, older parts will of course produce worse results. Also,
the carbs could be leaned out more than recommended. I recall an article on
how to best get around the test, but can't remember its source nor any more
specific ideas. Anyone else pitch in? JD

I have a 77 Spit in IL; I just failed emissions today. The readings
HC 312ppm passed limit: 700ppm
CO 7.5% FAILED limit: 7.0%
Anyone have any ideas? I have been told it might be running rich.
The car was also very hot and the tester flooded it trying to start it!
There is No emissions equipment on the car. DPO! But it did pass
this way 2 years ago.
