Motor had mystery carb on what looked to be a home made adaptor plate.
    Rusty Nail immediately called “vacuum leak” - it was.
    DBarre made me a deal on a correct carb - worked.
    Got around to working on the truck this weekend.
    This “fix” should keep it on the road until the new motor swap is ready... but that was/is another post.
    Thanks to all who participated in that long ago post.

    You're kidding right? As long as you've been in the hobby, you must have seen and done it all.
