Default Smog pumps or not, real world question, 1986 E-350 chasis

OK, not a 4x4, actually a 1986 Ford motorhome chasis. I'm all ready for a short trip, start the vehicle, lots of noise, sounds and smells like slipping fan belt.
Turns out one of the two smog pumps seized up. Fortunately, there is a dedicated belt from one of two groves on the alternator pulley to the smog pumps. Removing the belt, I was able to travel to and from my event. The alternator still spins from a belt on the other groove to the flywheel pulley.
So my question, in the real world (not the EPA, Mfg, etc. world), should I replace the smog pump (p/n E5TE-CC), or am I fine without it? If I don't replace, do I need to bypass, plug off, etc. any hoses or other connections? The p/n of the other smog pump is E5TE-DB if it matters.
TIA for any advice I can get.
