    I did some anti EPA surgery today on my -85 80 G/S (POs were sucker for stock I think) and wonder were this small tube go and if I should plug something. I went all around the air box and could not find any plug were it could have been?

    There should be a small hole in the airbox with a barb fitting which that attaches to. Despite the fact that I just removed one of those from a GSPD two weeks ago, I can't remember if it's in the front or back of the airbox. Don't forget to plug that hole in the airbox.

    There should be a tee at the front of the airbox. If not, I have a complete airbox with all the smog shit still there if you are interested. If you are yanking all of this stuff, the drain plugs (crankcase or tranny) are the correct size to plug up the holes in the heads (IIRC). Just make certain you properly plug and seal the airbox.

    The peg should have some sort of nipple that fits through a hole. I have to say, these rubbers don't belong on a GS. They are bloody dangerous, when it's wet and muddy.

    Thanks RomaDakota. Funny enough the plug for this tube did not look like this... So I unplugged the tubes at the carbs, cut them and put 5mm screws in them!
