Rusty EGR? Missing throttle body cover, dirty hood, some crusty vacuum hose?

Apparently was maintained well, for over 200k that motor is pretty clean. Then again mine was a farm truck so everything is amazingly clean to me lol.

Whats wrong here?

EGR still attached, vacuum pump still attached, vacuum hoses running everywhere. lol


@ that mileage I'd say do a rebuild... I bet you would be amazed at how you'll love your truck again.

Check to see if the recall on your cruise control was done, I don't see a fuseable link there. The cruise control was known to cause the odd fire.

I wouldn't do anything to it until something breaks. Unless you're looking for better performance of course.
