  3. I'd throw a bead all the way around that bung, and then machine/file it flat afterwards if needed. It looks high enough that you shouldn't need to.

  6. Thanks for the love guys, the reason for attacking the fender is that there was a crack in the bondo that looked pretty bad. popped off a chunk with a screwdriver and well, theres no turning back now. also made some modifications to the shifter. tightened the fork up in a vice, and replaced the cotter pins with nuts and bolts. I just wanted to get it mocked up, so used bolts from around the shop, but plan to replace them with zinc coated hardware. i also replaced one of the flat washers on the upper picot with a lock washer which helped increase tension without binding it. the shifter slo

  7. Strip it for your own parts. Then scrap. Or if possible just store it somewhere and strip as needed. Having a spare engine and transmission is good insurance.

  8. Realistically I think you'd be lucky to get $400 for it, and believe me I love these trucks and would like to save them all. You can probably get near that for the motor & trans if they are in good shape, but the rest just doesn't look like it's worth much when every panel is damaged like that. Common 521 parts are like coins...gotta be mint state to pull the good money

  10. All, I'm a relative newbie to the forum and I could use some advice. I found a 70 521 cuz I needed parts (windsheild, trim etc ) for my 71. It's a garage find of sorts and it's in decent shape for its age. On the good news side it is a CA truck with current non OP and the engine (L20 with a 5spd) starts and runs. So the question is, should I part it out cuz it has a lot of good parts on it or should I try to find a good home for it? Your feedback would greatly be appreciated. Bill P.s. I floated a price if 1200.00 on craigslist with a parts explanation and go

Hes a pretty talented guy.... still in the military and does welding and machining for them so I think I am in good hands..... He has his own little work shop at home where he does welding and some machining and 3d printing....

  19. Pulled the bed off to swap out the diff gearing. Did my research about the H190, the stock gears, and the different ratios available. Since I had a few rear ends left over from my roadster project I decided to give the roadster gearing a test. Success! My tires I used are quite a bit shorter than stock so the extreme difference of the roadster gears seamed to mesh well with the short tires (195-50-15). At gps 55 mph, the dash speedo was around 54 mph. While I got the bed off I’ll clean the bottom and undercoat. I’ll also replacing the muffler and adding the missing tailpipe.

  24. Depends the quality of the metal you're working with and your skill level. If you do decide to part it out I would suggest trying the Classified section here (or shoot me a pm if it has the lower tray on the passanger side in good condition! :D)

  26. Unless you have heard the story you likely do not know what he is talking about Jbirds510, count yourself lucky and do we really need to bring that shit up Mrbigtanker, it's in the past, lets not dredge up bad memories even if some think it is funny which I am not one of them. If you want to know what it's about ask some old timer next Powerlnd or at Blue Lake if you attend Jbirds510, lets keep this thread drama free.

  29. I loved Powerland so much I forgot about Canby. Don't get me wrong I loved Canby so many good memories there so let's make more at Powerland. We could have people come from across the country or even from another country for just the show like we had at Canby. Jay you did awesome holding this down I just can't express the gratitude I have. If someone does do shirts and sweaters maybe some of money can be donated to the park as well I don't know just an idea.

  31. If I could do a L motor again I would go L20 with the big port head dual carbs. All I had at the time 20yrs ago was a over abundand supply of L16 motors so I build that first.Never done one before. Then found out these motors are so EZ that I wish I did a L20. I had a 510 with built L20 by the previous owner I could pull away from a Dodge Corenet with a 440. The guy was like WTF you got. Building a L 16/L20 is good to get the vehicle running but cost is the same to build a L20.

  34. I was able to get home from work and get the oil pan off.... I've got that process down to about 30 minutes...... As I was cleaning it up with some lacquer thinner the crack became even more apparent.... flowed right through, the crack... Hard To get a good picture of the problem... I'll get this to my friend tomorrow and hopefully have it back in a day..... Only pic I got... upskirt of the engine..

  35. Took for a drive Sunday out on the highway and the transmission started growling badly on deceleration. Really loud out of gear coasting. It's quiet below 50/60. Well this transmission was in a crushed '79 280zx and was in my 620 for over 10 years and now in my 710. Lord knows the mileage on her. I had it apart last summer to replace the oil trough and all the bearings looked good so I'm at a loss. I'll get the car in the air and check the mount and engine mounting bolts are tight. But it may have to come out. I have a later '81-'83 280zx with the big over drive. I started taking i

  37. Friend at work is on board to do the welding for me..... I dont trust my ability with my mig welder to do it because of the need to hold back the oil..... Hopefully between tonight and tomorrow I can get it off and cleaned up... trying to give it to him on Thursday so I'll have it back for the weekend...... Unfortunately I think I'll be missing a car show Saturday but this needs to be fixed....
