Some time ago, GM (George Mitchell) posted instructions on removing and cleaning the switch, He demonstrated it to some of us when we visited him in his shop. Maybe he will re-post it.

Re: connector sleeve for choke rod

Is it flexible like the rubber connector or is it straight? Straight won't work. the joint has to flex with the engine movement. Do you have a picture of it?

Re: Fall 2020

Fall is coming to Western Ma also. 45 mile foliage ride yesterday. Fun on the back roads where no one is pushing you. That is our 9 year old foster child (also our great grand daughter).

Re: 46-48 interior panel
