Greetings All, While my recently imported '81 300GD (5cyl 2.9l diesel)is having her front end rebuilt I have been dealing with Cal. DMV to try to register the old girl in california. DMV has been fairly helpful but now wants a "certificate of conformance" from the 'Air Resources Board', and the ARB has been anything but helpful. I know the 300GD was not available in California in 1981 but was the 617 engine available in other models sold in California in 1981? Anyone have experience with registering a "grey market" diesel in California? Any help would be appreciated

The 617 engine was available in the 300D sedan and 300TD wagon in 1981.
