  • What is the part on my truck?

    My truck has been modified by who knows how many people so I don't always know what belongs. There is a part on the firewall that looks familiar, but I don't remember what it is for. I would look in the parts book, but I don't know which section to look in.

      The cable next to it is the E-brake.

          Wouldn't the oil pressure gauge, and oil pressure line, be up with the other instruments? This looks to go on the bottom half of the firewall - makes one wonder.

            that is the odd screw that holds the vertical regulator to the cowl. The other 2 are regular screws and should show holes ~ 3 inches below this....that's how my 53' C-cab came to me...

              What Jackb said. Many of the voltage regulators at the time (especially Delco) had three mounting holes -- one at upper end and two at the lower. That is the special nut for the top end of the regulator, and attaches to a weld screw. It is part number 678596 and is in section 0608 of the parts book. On many trucks the regulator grounding wire is attached to it.

                Mystery solved then. I guess I can remove it if its not needed.
