Sad day on "The Rock"

Well, I went to Christian's here in Oak Harbor for some carb parts and no luck. I then go up the road to A-1 and before even getting out of the truck, there was a sign on the door, "We no longer sell used parts". I went to inquire about this and they said the yard was closed as they are now "Jet City Equipment". When I asked what was happening to the vehicles in the yard (please bow your head) they said "crush 'em and send 'em to China" I guess I will have to head off island for new-used parts.

Bummer. Makes one think about having a small business dealing in surplus Ford parts ... or whatever, without having to devote space as a full scale wrecking yard. Hmmmm.

I was after an auto choke for a FoMoCo 2100 carb. Mine has a stripped out choke stove pipe but when I go to the yards I look over them all and see if something catches my eye! I see on Craigs list that NW auto recyclers in Lake Stevens is always positing trucks to part out. Might be taking a road trip on Saturday.

I have a good idea of what your talking about for the choke. But sadly most of the carbs at my local yard are gone, manual, or destroyed and stripped form useful parts.

Stromburg,
Post a photo of what your looking for and maybe
there is a clean fix that does not look glued.

Good news! Went to NW auto recyclers in Lake Stevens (70+ miles 1 way) paid my dollar entry fee, and found a choke, right rear lower trim panel and a new fan with clutch for $30. Hopefully the sky will dry up tomorrow so I can get this stuff put on.

Good deal! around here the yard entry is free but parts can vary from $10 for a $30 part to the reverse of $30 for a $10 part. It all depends on how the cashier sees the part and what kind of day they are having.
