    I don't know because I can't look at it without driving 100 miles. Next time I make the trip, I'll try to see if its the right one. Don't know when that will be though.

    im soooooo close to getting this truck ressurected to back on the road and im not giving up now, ive got driveshaft issue taken care of courtesy of local NAPA store, and i can get the thm200c kick cable figured out on the next warm day and exhaust pipe and a muffler too, and hoses wont be any big deal, just gonna have to break down and buy new ones, nothing left after that cept tranny fluid and title transfer and license plates/registration and insurance.. gonna be beeding this truck very soon if i get this job on the 9th.

    do need to seeif anyone can find me an exhaust pipe- the front one- attaches directly to exhaust manifold two studs and runs back down and under floor, i need one of them from caror truck 79-older with single exhaust setup, 80 and up alot were two pipes, crazy.. this is a 69 engine, so..



    hmmmm...


    thanks
