This from Milton Allen on the $ear$ Tech forum on Yahoo:

The reason was that they didn't have a clue.

Some had bad dampers, some had bad thermostats and some were improperly
sealed allowing cold air to come around the damper. Most of the damper
issues were caused by the cabinet not being sealed allowing moisture in
which in turn accumilated in the damper door slide track freezing it either
open or closed. What's really strange is the fact that the kit is t/s (truck stock) along
with damper and adc control but not the thermostats. If you look up the
damper in lis it gives you the kit p/n but not the damper itself even
though its t/s also. The kit also included a troubleshooting flow chart to
ck freezer temp, ref temp, compressor current draw and somthing else to tell
you what was actually bad but who was gonna waste there time you were
replacing it all anyway.

And Ron, I remember the bigger screw also. The "Mark 1" version of this kit was very difficult to install. Like you and Milton, I think they tried to come up with a "once and for all" solution.
