For those of you living in California, and others interested, I had to bring my 86 Spider into the CARB Referee today. In California if your car does not have the right equipment you need bring it to the state referee for a ruling.

Anyway, at the bi-annual SMOG inspection it was failed for not having that stupid ignition pointer on the water pump. Even though the same smog place inspected it twice before and passed it.

The CARB referee and two other technicians went over the Alfa for an hour and a half today. They did not ding me on the exhaust system (I run a header), the timing pointer, or anything else.

The Referee cited the following and said to bring this in the next time I go through Smog. So if this helps out anyone else missing their timing pointer here it is.
