I may have confused some folks, the A/C harness is original only the TOT portion at the engine that looks like a metal squid and a small section behind the instrument panel that runs to the TOT gauge (power for the digital readout below the needle?). The harness is the biggest unknown.

And none of you have mentioned the tendency of strong metal bits to break like glass in that temp range. I was in Dead Horse in the mid '70s and thought the sight of heavy machinery parts shattered by a small lurch or bump was totally fascinating...

Yes, that is part of a floating bridge. We dropped off 7 of them into the river. They would then be unfolded and hooked together in the water. This is one of the ends.

I used to live in the Bay and was stationed on an aircraft carrier based there, I miss fleet week. Watched the Blue Angels from a sail boat in the Bay once, was really cool.
