    The rig isn't in too bad of condition, but there was a design flaw that carries on to this day. The frames do not have any real drainage holes. This frame was packed full of mud in the areas of rot.

    Welcome icetime33,

    That looks to me that the item shown is a high idle mechanism for extreme Arctic temps? I'll have to research this a bit further. What's the model and make on the carb?

    Amén on your salute to our Veterans.

    It helps to keep close tabs on your builds. Photo and serial numbers recorded are great to file away just in case something were to happen to your truck.
