    I have a 1985 K10 with CRUISE III. Anyone have a carb to Servo linkage that they’d like to sell, or know of a site that sells one? Thank you

    They also sell those clips in the Help! section of your local parts store(s).

    I honestly
    don’t even know what it looks like. I just figured it was a very specific type of clip.

    Dorman 41017 is the number. Worth it if you have a need for everything in the assortment, or necessary if you lose them like I do. I had to get this because I lost them in two different vehicles. But in your case, I’m sure one of these guys can toss one in there. Bottom right and left corner (larger version) in the below picture is what you need.

    Why it attached two, I don’t know.

    If you need the link rod, just let me know and I'll pop it in the mail.
