I've actually used the DMV in the past. If you call the nearest depot and tell them what you are looking for they may be able to help. Just a thought or talk to small garage about using theirs. You might get lucky. Just a thought.Rodney
I live in Polk County so I'm not required to DEQ my bus. I wonder how the law would apply to the bus if I lived there though. It's stated right on the sticker that it is a non-catalyst emissions control system.I don't think they would let me tune my mixture at the DEQ station either.
That may work, but it could get expensive. I really just need the machine for the rich/lean function. My other option, I guess, is to buy a cylinder head temp gauge and use that for tuning, as my main goal in tuning the mixture is to reduce head temps. I also read a really cool article on replacing the Temp Sensor 2 (head temp sensor) with a potentiometer that's located in the cab. With that you can fine tune your mixture on the fly, and with the use of a CHT you can keep your head temps low. The guy who thought of it said he was able to reduce uphill temps quite a bit by enriching the mixture, then leaning it back out afterwards to increase gas mileage.
