Guessing they don't like the in 321o part, as people might take the o to be an 0 and thus have four consecutive numbers.

Mebbe 210653?

I have a van in the back yard that has the cowl vent actuator arms etc that are missing- will have to start digging in the seam to see what bastardry has been committed- after the rattler is done of course

Hey Blacky even though my FC was a different shape I can see that you are right, looks like it is all there, the drain tube is there and the bracket piece where the actuator lever is there.
Have it just been bogged in??

Blacky,

The "flywire" at the front of the cowl vent seems to have been removed, and I can't see the tabs on the cowl where the vent pivots on the cowl.
