Air pump system removal

I've searched here and Rennlist for an instructional posting for the removal of the air pump system and have not had much luck. I've found a ton of postings that say, "remove smog pump system"- but so far nothing instructional with pics a la slownrusty style. Do any of you have one saved- or know of a posting that might help? I've removed the injectors and pipes from under the motor and would like to take care of the rest- but it's a new car to me ('86 930) and was hoping for a little more than an explosion diagram of the system. I would characterize myself to be at the "idiots guide" level of competency. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Worst case scenerio, you could take pics of your engine, and we could circle the items that need to be pulled. Havent seen any good write ups yet.

Yeah- I actually used that post to remove the injectors- and it was quite helpful. What I'm trying to do now is remove the pump, belt and all ancillaries (that's what I was referring to in this post). I'm sure some people leave as is but I'd like to clean up the engine bay and remove all the unnecessary crap.

Mine was already pulled when I got the car so I am not possitive, but you should just be able to cut the belt that goes from the scavenge pump to the air pump. then just disconnect and remove the air pump. The vaccum lines will be the tricky part. I think the mech that pulled my system left to much behind.

The air pump and its mounting bracket is a breeze to remove. Its similar to removing an alternator in that it has a top pivot bolt and a lower bracket bolt. After that wiggle it out (there is not much room).

Its been almost 3years since I pulled mine, but remember it was simple.

Once you get in there it really isn't that bad. When you get to a questionable part take a pic and post it up. I went through this and wasn't overwhelmed. Now with my air injection I cut it directly under the case so I could plug it once. But removing the rest is on my to-do list and pluggin the heads.

Thanks guys- I'll give it a go and post "what's this thing" pics when I encounter them. May be a couple of weeks because GHL exhaust and new turbo arrive this Friday and as soon as I see the "bling" they're going to have to go on right away!

When you get you GHL muffler put on post up some pics. Or email me a couple. I have a GHL muffler and the tips aren't even. It bugs me, so I'm curious if they are all that way or if mine's a fluke.

Will do- but I ordered the single outlet muffler. You should call Brian @ GHL: 877-930-0911 and let him know you're not happy. I spoke with him a few times and he seemed eager to please. For example he was going to weld an additional O2 bung on for wideband sensor free of charge (unfortunately I couldn't tell him where to put it so I'll have it done locally). I've heard B&B makes more power but I went with GHL because I've heard their customer service is so much better- send him a picture and if it's their mistake I'm sure they'll make it right.

Thanks for the contact info. It may be worth asking him if they've heard anything. I don't expect them to do anything for me considering I bought the complete setup used. I haven't installed the headers yet, only the muffler. Maybe it'll all line up when I get the whole kit on there.
