    Aforementioned frame-to-cab ground strap is attached. This is taken behind the front driver side tire. It clips to the lip of the cab sheetmetal, wraps around the body mount, then clips to the frame (seen directly behind the bolt).

    Thanks for the tip about the carb. I'll double check to make sure. I think Bill said from the appearance and #'s it was from late 70's sedan. The YF rebuild kit was the one that fit. Most of those thin, colored vac lines were laying with open ends down the side. Amazing how giving a hoot can take mpg's from 7-16 haha.

    Thanks for the reps. Odd what you remember from various reading. Back in college I had a fraternity brother who was in mechanical engineering and I was in electrical engineering. He kept asking me questions from what he read in his textbook on internal combustion engines, and my answers seemed to help him understand what the book said. So, by the end of the course I'd read many bits and pieces of the book and wanted more, so I bought it from him. I've read it cover-to-cover twice. Is that sick, or what?

    Forgot to mention that Fordzilla80 was under the impression that you have a 1981 300 I6 California Emissions compliant truck, and believes it is 100% complete as far as the factory emissions system goes.
    Thanks again.

    Mister 81-F-150-Explorer - Fordzilla pointed me in your direction. Here's a copy of my post and dilema:

    I recently bought an '82 Stepside w/300 l6.
    Hadn't been registered in years. DMV wants it smogged. Most of the vac lines
    were disconnected or cracked.
    I got a Haynes manual but surprisingly it doesn't help cuz they left out '81
    & '82 vac diagram. Under hood sticker is legible and I located a list of
    acronym definitions.
    Humbly, I'll admit my true problem. - Between the color coding,
    acronyms, check valves etc., my dyslexic mind becomes frustratingly lost.
    Would it be possible for one of you fine folks to post some clear pics of a
    stock, (CA approved), vac/emission setup? Actual photos of what is depicted
    in the under hood diagram. I think I should be able to follow a visual if I
    just had one to look at. I want to get my registration straightened out before
    I can begin modifying anything.

    Thanks in advance for your time.
