What does my 77 gmc K20 need to pass CA smog

As far as I know. Anything 1994 and under don't have to go through emissions anymore, just safety. But, like countrysi248 said, it might depend on what state you live in. Best wishes to ya.

No AIR pump

Your vehicle came with a smog pump. It may have seized up (probably breaking the fan belt) and my have simply been removed by a mechanic at an earlier time. It is located below the alternator on your vehicle.
If there is no pump but a bracket to hold it, it has definitely been removed. Vehicles will often pass a state smog test without the pump. It only works during engine decelleration (when you lift your foot off of the gas pedal)

What can i do without

Everything but the catalytic converter. I live in TN, the emissions test that I have to pass is a sniffer test. I have absolutely no emissions controls on my car, but when it comes time to pass emissions , i bolt the converter back on. Does fine.
