Anyone got an XB engine bay pic

Thats 100% factory. I got canaried today and the police officer stated in conjunction with the PCV, I should a breather hose running from the aircleaner? Pollution gear he says. I can't recall ever seeing one with it that was factory. Just want to get my facts straight before presenting @ Vic roads to have the yellow sticker removed on Wednesday.

Only other thing picked was my drag slicks but hey of course I know they aint legal

I thought that was June 75? Mines June 74. The books I have hear don't show enough detail to see it. Mines got ADR 27 but not ADR 27a.

It's no biggie to put it in. I already have but it requires a massive air cleaner that will be thrown in the back seat as soon as I leave vic roads. With the big aircleaner on the car struggles to start and/or run. A pain in the arse really for something that does pretty much nothing.

That a bit of bad luke did they get you on the way home, like they always do. And most people say its the XCs that have all of the ADRs.

Re: Anyone got an XB engine bay pic

ADR 27 came out sometime in 1974, so all XCs will have it, some XBs will. The 12/75 XB I looked at had it.

Why can't I find any info on ADR 27 on the net? Because it's been superceeded? Time to dig out my emissions module stuff from trade school.
