Default Kit part number for air throttle

Does anyone know the part number for the Williams Controls air slave unit rebuild kit? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, That 2nd one is a very good price. I found all three major parts to put a complete air throttle together and the slave unit was used. Checked with dozens of truck junkyards and only found one that had ever heard of an air throttle. The projects are piling up and no weather good enough to start any of them. We have 2" of rain in the forecast tonight and 2" snow for Sunday.

Rick,

Similar forecast here. But it is worth a roadtrip to get the experience. Ping me if you need a couple of extra hands. My laminated cardboard sign says "Will work for free if you have a BB".

Rick, Yes I did. Thanks buddy. I have asked Rostra for a suggestion on their cruise system but they are not answering. King cruise is out til I win the lottery! Maybe I will play with my old DANA and see if I can bring it back from the dead.
Mike, Thanks for the offer. I might call you when it gets a little warmer. One of my friends suggested I go around with the BB and pick up all the guys on the corner with signs "Will work for food" and bring them over, feed them and make them put up the Bus Stop! It is almost done but the snow stopped the shingles on half the roof for the time being. I got the gutters rolled out today, one is 42' long. Is the Ohio River getting high in Cinci?

Rick,

Just drop me a line. You are not that far away.

Like you, we are getting soaked over the next few days and the river is going up: http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydro...iln&gage=ccno1

Luckily, we are a good distance away from the Ohio and the bus is safely stored indooors. We still have a few years before we full-time in the TARDIS. In the mean time, the dream is to find a domicile where our WL is next door, like the Bus Stop. But just not possible right now.

Rick,

HAH! I thought I felt something pulling at the steering wheel when we were lost that night. I think we drove past there when we were driving in circles looking for the sign.
I got on the Audiovox site and it said there were 16 techs waiting to answer any question on line. So I clicked on the appropriate sections and stated I wanted to know the model of their electric cruise unit replaceing the the CCS-100 vacuum unit. The tech came online asking for $28 to answer the question. What a scam!
We have had rain all night and looking forward to the snow starting later today. 1''-2" by morning. Should go nicely with the sheet of ice left over from the rain today.
