[Lumps!] Which Northern Calif referee should I go to?

I am starting the process to get one of my jags registered
in California. To all of the Nor Cal owners, which
inspection referee station should I go to?–

Is this a lump that needs a referee? Does it have CA current
registration in one way or another. Fees up to date by regular fee
or by non op?

Andrew is the master of which and how as to registration. Although,
I do recall he ran into a bump in one car!!

I found one in near to me in San Pablo at the Contra Costa
Community College. After some travails ands learning process for
him and I, I made it.

You will need a factory manual from the donor car to prove up a
point or two. Mine were:

  1. The Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham had a true dual exhaust.

  2. The 94 model was OBD I in spite of having a port shaped for OBD
    II.

  3. Althought he donor car AC controls were a part of the PCM, that
    was not relevant as having nothing to do with emisions.

  4. The speed sensor in the front wheel of the donor car was
    irrevelant to emmisions.

So, it must first pass the visual inspection with all smog stuff
from the donor car.

It must pass the sniff test. The referee must have access to the
data port and read the flow to see if is matches donor car specs.
His machine would not. But, he accepted my scanner’s readings.

And for whatever reason, he checked to see if my neutral start
switch was functional. it was/is!!

It might be worthwhile to have a pre inspect by a qualified tune up
shop or inspection station.–

It was a previous California car and lumped. Still has the
referee sticker on the drivers door jamb. I have since
registered it in New Mexico and put in a 1993 LT1. If I put
the corvette cats on and air pump, I think I will have all
the right smog pieces.–

Pat:

The ‘‘old’’ referee ticket just might enable you to go to a Test only
station rather than a referee. I’ve forgotten if it has a bar code
to access PCM data for the engine that was in it when passed by the
referee. If so, it is out of date!!

So, now, you have to do the thing all over again, because the LT!
might be different than the one in it when it was refereed.

I’d say it’s worth a shot at the test only station as is!!
