Throttle Body

When our new block was ordered from Pace, we planned to bolt on all the original parts, so we started looking through the piles in the bed of the truck and behind the seat in the cab. We collected a bunch of bits, and began to notice that everything needed to be rebuilt or replaced. The starter and alternator were used as cores for rebuilt units ($150 alternator, $80 starter), the A/C compressor pump and lines swallowed up another $400, and the throttle body looked unrebuildable.
