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

Re: My new R180

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!

The frame VIN will do and I don't want them to think it suspicious that the data plate is sanded or chemical stripped. After the inspection I'll hit it with some paint remover and see what's left. Still not sure why they'd put it on the bed like that.


Sure enough. Cleaned the plate to reveal nothing. Eventhough the frame VIN is easily visible NC is requiring a new VIN and their cheap stickers on the door jamb and firewall! Ugh!

Re: My new R180

On my 9670's IHC used a metallic "sticker" for the VIN. Since mine was starting to peal, I got some thin Plexiglass and made a cover that I held in place with "tamper resistant" screws. Never had it questioned. Might be an idea for you in case the DOT's sticker isn't good.
