New guy, New truck

Hello, what a great site! I've picked up some great info even before joining. 3 weeks ago I bought a 1946 PW. Luckily, it appears almost completely original and is rust free.

I have a couple questions.
1. What engine is this? Engine stamped "DEA70589"
2. There is a spacer under the carb that has a vacuum line run to it from the carb. There is a butterfly in it that appears to be actuated by some mechanism inside of it. What is it and what does it do?

Thanks,
Pat

The thing under the carburetor is a governor. It can limit the speed of the engine and the vehicle. Most often found on commercial and military trucks. It's adjustable.

D is the letter code for 1946. I'm not sure about the rest.

Thanks. I'll repost in the shop section. I'm trying to figure out how to get the pics on a server...

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
