You need the lower shrouds in the winter to help the engine warm up quicker 
and to provide heat. I don't have any stock ones right now, but I think 
there is a sheet metal tab you bend over to hold the pins.  Keep asking and 
someone will tell you/correct me. The adjustment of the damper doors-rods 
from door to thermostats; I can't help you with as I have to refer to 
manuals-haven't done the adjustment in so many years.

Subject: <VV> lower shroud question

Does everyone replace their lower shrouds in the cooler weather?  Mine were 
both missing the pivot pins and bushings on the exhaust duct dampers so I 
bought new ones.  What I can't figure out is how the pivot pins stay in 
place.  There's nothing to keep them secure.  Can someone please explain to 
me how to properly put the lower shrouds back on and keep the dampers in 

Thanks in advance
