I think it also has power locks, grab those, and the metal interior door handles, much better than the '87-and-up plastic ones.
As I said, @BroncMom needs those switch bezels! Lol

Johnny Blaze, as in Ghostrider? Or Method Man?

Theres a 92+ 4.9L/7.5L air inlet snorkel in one pic lol...

I know exactly what you mean. I have so many parts for projects that I really want to, but may never, happen. Then the problem becomes, they're so large that you can only hope to sell them locally due to shipping. I just hate the idea of desirable parts being lost forever.

My wife is constantly on me about getting rid of my 'crap' in the garage.

I can't even work on my Comet because I have a D60, a Sterling, and a D44 solid and some TTB beams sitting behind it. I'm gridlocked in my own garage.

BigBlue 94 @BroncMom needs those window switch bezels...



I had forgotten about potentially the BIGGEST find of my last trip. It was raining, so I had my phone packed away.

It was a 78-91 style of center console, with FACTORY DEEP cup holders. They were molded in, just like normal, but about 2" deep! It was in an 80s supercab pickup. I've got a tuffy so I didnt need it.

oshere Junkyard fine for anyone in Maryland Chesapeake Bay Area. My brother-in-law sent me these pictures see if there's anything I wanted and I thought I'd share. If anyone's interested I can ask him the exact location I think it's the junkyard in Harve De Grace Maryland. I'm hoping he can go back pull the seats look to see if there's a steering wheel and the emblems and that rear deflector but the front fenders look good for anyone needs front fenders.

Handy_andy_cv64 Oh, yeah, that ugly SOB. I call those RVs the "Speculum." You can get one of those air movers for the horns off Amazon, a complete install kit. If the hose is Y'd before their attachment to the horns, you can pull the Y off, and attach the long hose to each one, test them separately. Even with one's breath pressure, they are loud!

Even if its only 120v, its still a generator with a fuel supply that doesn't go bad over time. It will still run my freezer, just not my well pump.

Here's an operating manual for a similar if not exact model

I used one of those rubber cone tipped blow guns from my compressed air tank and shot a few bursts through those horns. Nice and loud, but I'm not sure if both or only one is working. Sounds like one of those emergency boat horns that comes with its own canned air supply.

67galax Well, after a few hits with the old impact, I got the yoke off the jeep transfer case. Since I also pulled a rear flange off a 95 bronco, I compared the two. The splines on the jeep front output are larger than the bronco rear, meaning I probably won't be able to use it on my bronco transfer case. I read somewhere earlier that you could use a bronco rear flange on the front to get a double cardan on the front.

Here are some pics. Quick Google search makes me think its a Jeep NP231

BigBlue 94 Not sure if you're aware, but those Onan generators are built by Cummins. They are about the best generators you can get. I would ask them what they want for it, before touching it. I'd gladly pay 200 bucks to pull that puppy if it works.

67galax Part Two:

By the time I got to the camper, I'd already been there for about an hour, and didn't really feel like trying to get the York.

On my tour yesterday, I saw a bronco transmission/transfer case in the engine pile. I figured I'd get the flange output in case I ever wanted to convert the F150 into a Bronco one. I also pulled the case apart to get the entire output shaft that goes with it, but didn't have any snap ring pliers to get it off. So I stashed it all, plus the one half of the driveshaft in an old van (hopefully to separate and get later).

Then I spent about 30 minutes standing around while some random guy talked my ear off about all the old ford trucks nearby, and how any of them would be nice to have, even though he's a chevy guy.

On the way out, I spotted some broken transfer case that I couldn't immediately recognize that had a double cardan joint on the front driveshaft. Since it was broken, I couldn't keep the shaft from spinning to get the yolk unbolted, so I took the whole thing to the front. $10. Not bad considering I don't know what its out of or if it will work on my transfer case.

Here's the far away:



If you can't see the name, it says Itasca Spectrum. ???

I got the horns, and lying down under the truck, I pulled on the hose that fed them. It came off in my hand from I don't know where. Didn't feel like spending a load of time underneath it looking for where it came from.

I did see a big propane or CNG tank on the driver's side. On the passenger side, behind a door I pried open was this:



Not sure if it would be worth trying to get out, if it works, or what they'd charge me if I brought it up front.

67galax Went back again today to look at the bigger trucks and see if I could find a serpentine york. No luck. I did find a similar air compressor as the one I found on the industrial 300. This one was on a cat diesel in a ford 8000.



I also found this weird 70s/80s motorhome. Not the classic GM motorhome with the Toronado V8, but it was powered by a GM engine. It had a York 210 with a dual V-belt setup.



Its a partial 'cab over' design, like a van, so it will be a chore to remove it if I decide I need it. But, its been under a hood the whole time as opposed to the other York 210 thats on a 5cyl Mercedes diesel on the other side of the yard.

One other thing that got me more interested were these horns



I reached around back to find the nuts/bolts that were holding them on to find that they are air powered. I followed the tube under the vehicle, but gave up when I decided I'd probably dirty up my work clothes crawling underneath. I'll certainly find the source of compressed air on this motorhome tomorrow.

I've now seen 4 types.

The one above with the hot air choke. It was on an 87. Pic for posterity



Then they went to a one-piece design in, I believe, 88. That was the accordion one. Like this



Somewhere around 90, they went to the smooth style. In 92 there was a change I havent figured out. In 93, they added a small indentation for clearance on the bottom side. Since these arent accordion style, they dont need the brace at the core support.

Right before the bend into the airbox, on the 'southern' edge is where the indentation is. F3 part is on top, F2 is on bottom. Otherwise, these two are identical.
