    It appears they used different smog pumps for the carb 308s and the early (83) QVs. I know the smog pump from the carb cars can be crossed to a Regal (81) but what about the QVs smog pump. I compared side by side and the QV pump is slightly larger and has a different part # on the back of it. Any ideas?

    Got to believe it is still a GM part

    Thanks. I will call around and see if anyone has one. The #'s I found on my OEM smog pump are:
    7832904 (B143).

    The 7 digit # is (or was - if discontinued!) a GM part #.

    OK, THAT was weird. My reply shows up *before* the post that I was commenting on. Must be a time warp, worm hole, or something.

    Or else this board is relying on the sending computer's clock!
