EGR block-off plate
« on: March 12, 2014, 01:16:51 PM »
As BlackBird's been neutered before I got him & has a Holley instead of the original carb. does anybody offer a plate or is it something I need to have custom made? It is disconnected & not doing anything there, figured I'd just take it off since it's just sitting there.

I keep mine just in case I get a rotten tank of fuel. It's easy to hook up on the Holley still. As for a block off plate, most use a Chev fuel pump block off plate and mod the holes slightly.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

Thanks Carnuck, I figure I might as well take it off. It's not doing anything, hasn't for years. Was disconnected when I got BlackBird years ago & just sitting there. I'll try to get one of those & see how much modification needs to be done.

I know this is an old thread but I found this on eBay and bought one.

I'll try it out and let you know if it works well or not.
