Air pump removal

My '76 has one of those pumps that pumps air into the exhaust. I would like to remove it to clean up the engine compartment. I would appreciate any help in telling me how to do this.

Curvie,

If you have a HAYNES manual, I believe there is a description at the end of the 'Fuel System' chapter. If you do not, I'll check it out at home tonight and update the forum.

I've read the Haynes manual and it only explains how to remove the bolts that hold the pump onto the car (installation is the reverse of removal). What I want to do is remove the whole air injection system permanently. Which I'm sure involves more than removing the pump. My concern is with the plumbing where it goes into the engine. It would seem that there needs to be some sealing of the openings for the air injectors. That's what I want to know about. How do I plug the holes?

I believe that valve adjusting lugs work for that. Loc-Tite the heck out of them to make sure they don't back out. Other metric set-screws of similar size should work as well.

I just went to a hardware store with the air injector jet and I matched up the thread and size of the jet to a bolt, bought four, and fit great. Make sure you buy them long enough to hold out manifold in too. I bought them too short at first, and I had to go back and exchange them. When you put them in, put some sealer in the thread of the bolts to make a better seal. Good luck.
