In section 19 of the MSVA manual It says "This examination applies to all vehicles fitted with a spark ignition engine except vehicles fitted with engines manufactured before 1 January 1993" it then says visual check only.
Am I reading this correctly and my soon to be tested SS will only need a visual check as the engine was built in 1984. or am I missing something hidden elsewhere?
Just wondered as the Manual has been bedtime reading for a number of weeks now and I am getting brain strain trying to interpret the hidden meanings on the bits that apply to my build.

Hi
I haven’t been through the manual for a few years but in my Ss test with a 1975 donor they did check emissions

I found a friendly mot test centre and spend some time between mot tests adjusting it

FYI 2cv engines are quite clean burning

Just had the MSVA test on my build which passed and the tester confirmed that provided the engine was pre 1993 it was a visual test only.
