You probably already know this but grease the filter base plate, wing nut and filter flat edges. Lots of KN filter oil and foam outer wears. a couple of bolt on shields to keeep them away from direct tire dust would help.

Emissions with an air cooled motor "socks" to say the least. The easiest way is to replace the motor with a water pumper you'll pass every time. But not a lot of us have that desire so there's a couple things you can try

1)borrow someone else's motor and take it through missions and then put your old motor back in your car

2) find a place in your exhaust system to temporarily bolt on a catalytic converter and take it through emissions

3) play with fuel additives-- I've never had much luck with this.

4) register your vehicle outside of Phoenix so you don't have to do emissions..

If I can think of anything else...i will let you know.

or maybe I am jumping the gun... maybe you passed..

95% back together today, took a lot to get everything back together and to fit with the dual carbs. Including having to re shape the wheel well area on the right rear just to get the carb to fit (it was hit there before probably why its a baja now) Had to hammer it out over an inch! Just need to hook up a couple more wires, change the gear oil, fill up the engine with oil, and tighten a couple thing and I should be able to fire it up tomorrow night.

I picked up my baja today. Dirtjunkie was a great help. I tried to time the 009 distributor tonight and found something really odd. My degree pulley appears to be off by 50 degrees!

I used the timing light on #1, and even popped the distributor cap and rotated the engine until the rotor pointed to the 4 o'clock position. It read 50*. I tried adjusting it while running, and it liked it best at 60*. I can only guess that my pulley was mismarked. I didn't try emissions yet.
