Re: Windshield drain hose

What is the route of this rubber hose which connects to the metal tube under the dash to the outside? In other words, where does it exit the cab? Thanks for you reply.

Re: door latch and linkage arm

Yes the inside handle works as it should. The problem is the key will not lock or unlock the latch.

Anyone have ideas for source for a rebuild kit for a 221? Best we can find is over $2600 from Egge. That sounds a little high! Your thoughts please. Bill
