Worked on the single cab today. Removed the 1960 fresh air box and replaced it with a correct fresh air box.

The difference is the flush edge around the screens and slightly different ribs?

I don't remember when the no lip screen ended, pretty sure early 56? WB buses have 5 position fresh air knob too

I don't know when the lip came into play. This one has the lip and wrong screen

Before I actually installed it. I removed the lip around the screen. And added the correct screen and the dimple between the vents so it is correct for 55
