[DML] Re: Missing idle mixture screw?



You might want to look into getting historic or antique registration 
for your car. I don't know what state you live in but as of January 
1st, 2006 an '81 car is considered in every state to be an antique.  
With that status, unless your car is a daily driver, you probably 
won't need an emissions test.
