    Working on replacement of heater hoses and noticed some slime under these boxes? It is all dried up but I wonder if the electronics were fried at some point? Guess I find out when I attempt a start at some point... 542D8EBA-9C3C-416C-A895-1C8F4C5A77DC.jpeg 0579D693-32A2-4F60-B522-5F430812378D.jpeg

    Ecu's do that too. The goop goes leaky with age sometimes. I've even had them do it in storage in a normal temperature room.

    That's an emissions timer, not ignition box so it's not really needed.

    plus the missing slime doesn't seem to affect the operation of the component.

    I would definitely get a new connector for your voltage regulator though :)

    Just replace that thing. Had the same slimy stuff coming out of my Ignition Box in my '79 RV (MB400). Then shortly after - it just failed on me. Luckily not in heavy traffic on a small road....
