Interesting. There was SOMEONE working on the right side of the assembly line 
in 71 that was failing to install the little screw that holds that elbow on top 
of the heater mixer box. You can't imagine how many of those have fallen off an 
gotten lost. Always 71, always the right side. BTW, that elbow was responsible 
for a rattle in my 71 that had me baffled for YEARS. That was a great day when 
I discovered it still there, but loose, and fixed it with a simple screw.

Yes, this is quite a job and most of them need to have it done.

I have a few NOS slide rails. They have not been available for at least 15 
years. They are not cheap.
