    I think it's a charger for your phone,,oh, the knob, whatever you do, DON'T TOUCH IT! Everything would have been just fine if you left it alone.

    If it was an old Detroit or a Mack, I'd say a fuel shutoff.

    Uhhhh we already pulled and pushed it it did nothing !!!! I'm not sure what it is maybe 2 speed diff ???? I have never had a 2spd diff so that may make me seem stupid. Also yes I thought choke but a 97 Cummins I doubt it would.

    Ah OK well great cause if you pull out the knob comes off gotta love ####ty company equipment !!! Actually I blame the driver's you should see these trailers there so beat. Pulled exact same tankers for a different outfit and they were dent less,nice AND WE KEPT THEM THAT WAY. Too bad the guy we filled in for quit then company got outta milk.

    You pushed it? What a marine. Dash mounted 2 speed axles went out in the 60's. I drove an IH 1600 cabover that had a column shift 5 speed and a 2 speed on the dash. Talk about a funky deal that was. 062 I think is right, it's a fresh/ recirculate control with the marking worn off.

    I think it is the push, pull control for the air through the heater. Fresh air from outside, or recirculate.

    Same control in my old 1981 , 9670. It worked flawlessly. You the human..were actually the "actuator" . of course one did not have to pull so hard on it as to destroy the knob. But some drivers could break a iron anvil . Not saying you. But the more drivers in a truck, the more destruction. I have looked at newer used trucks, and the interior looks like deranged, maniacs were in it. Lol.
