    Deuce Air Governor

    Replace those copper lines with DOT plastic tubing and fittings. Unless you really enjoy the old copper tubing. Back in the old days when every truck was plumbed with copper, you cannot imagine how much I hated it.

    Have fun with it, let us know how it looks when it gets there. Mine ran when I got it, would not move, had the wrong series transmission in it. Been driving it the last few months. I am about in the same boat as you. Takes me forever to get anything done now.

    Still ON!!! 2020 Pacific NorthWest Rally / FE / Swap Meet!

    The Brad we all know says he is coming, with or without his truck. Also his friend Josh with WW2 Jeep. I would imagine they will arrive Saturday morning. I would consider this an RSVP, you know how technically challenged he can be.

    What have you done to your FMTV or LMTV today

    Nope, it was not there. Found it in the storage box behind the drivers seat after I replaced the assembly. I drove it probably 150 miles before it let go.
