I'm trying to remember, do you have a velocity gov or a vacuum operated gov?
vacuum gov I think.... Its inoperable...missing parts Spacer doesn't seem to have the holes either

IIRC we researched this on some thread before, and the passage goes to the "economizer" diaphram on the top of the float bowl. It needs to see manifold vacuum, and passed thru the gov to the manifold, so it would stay closed when the gov restricted flow.

Hmmm. I'll have to pull the carb and such again and look.

It's always nice to be able to put a little bit of history to your truck. Great pictures!
