  4. Hi, I think you will have your work cut out, when I had mine (1973 PI CR model) tested last year, it also failed miserably on emissions. Elclem fiddled with the timing at his workshop and when we got to the CT station it still failed, luckily our tester was very co-operative and after an hour of fiddle fiddle fiddle, the emissions computer went GREEN and we quickly saved the data, at least when your car finally passes you do not have to worry about it for another 5 years IF MY CAR HAD BEEN 6 MONTHS OLDER IT WOULDN'T HAVE NEEDED AN EMISSIONS TEST The other big problem with a Fr

    Alternator
