I sent a gear rack. Did it arrive and is it correct for the '38??

Any tricky spots for screws? Adhesive? but I canít see any evidence between the parts.
Some guy that had our '37 PU got tired of it leaking so he globbed a bunch of silicone caulk all over it. After I dug all of that out and WD-40'ed the gear mechanism it worked good. New seal replaced too.
But it still leaked like a bugger! I just stayed out of the rain with it.

Next time maybe Phil Swift's Flex Seal yeah!!!

I just found a good working 35-36 w/s regulator in my stash. Original and in good clean shape. What's it worth to somebody. Start a budding war fellers. LOL

Lawson Cox and Renoalbany sent you both a message. Clem Clement yes I finally received it. Trying to make it work but will take some fabricating.
