    The "Wagon Syndicate" got together at the Cars and Coffee out in Corona this morning. As usual, we were the last folks to leave the event.. Left to right: Mr BigTanker Datrod Duncan Wicked Jester A good time was had by all in-between all the earthquakes.

    Heat soak happens mostly when stopped or just after shut down or low speeds. Unless you have a fetish for those slotted louvers DON'T cut the hood up. Vintage race it first as there may be no problem at all. I detest louvers. Adjust the hood latch so it doesn't close all the way at the back and it there's a rubber seal peel it off. This will let the hot air out.

    Maybe you shouldn’t buy this, since you aren’t competent enough to do anything else.

    Campaigned a DP 2000 in the late 70s early 80s. Never had that problem. Maybe if your sitting in traffic, but then you aren't racing. Like Mike said, need a really good heat shield between the carbs & exhaust, bond some insulation to it, bring it over to the inner fender panel. Re-route your gas lines, right now you have them sitting over the header. Find away to bring fresh air in. If your insistence on fkng the hood up, just put the louvers over the carbs facing forward. At that point who cares about aesthetics. You'd probably be better off putting in a naca duct. Depending on what vintage racing association you plan on competing in, louvers could be a no no, not period correct after all.

    When I saw the tube I thought ah shit another L16 but was surprised when I saw it was an L20B. I am happy with whatever it ends up being for $100. Icing on the cake would have been a compatible 5 speed but it is what it is.

    I'm going out on a limb and say this is from a '74 610. The 710 and 620 didn't get the L20B until '75 but the first year they were used was on the '74 610. A sort of transition year. I know that this year L20B also had the block vent tube come straight out of the block and it used the L16/18 four into two cast exhaust header still. That's most likely a 200mm PP and clutch as it comes from a car. The head will almost certainly be an A87. Look between the #1 and #2 plugs down where the head meets the block.

    Hell yeah it is. I can take whatever else I want besides the wheels and tires. Anyone got any idea what would be worth some $$$ if I did take it?

    Shit, $100 for just the mikunis would be a steal.

    $140 shipped isn't terrible. They are super heavy after all. I paid $129.50 shipped for a set in 2015

    I cant tell the difference but for $140 shipped I guess I could take a chance. Any idea what bushings I need to use to make them up work?

    You need to either loosen the oilpan and let it drop an eighth inch or you remove the head, you cannot just remove the front cover and put it back, it is too tight to do that.

    Well shiat that is easy. I always thought you had to drop the pan and some other shit.

    Yes they appear to be 4X4 leafs, you can tell because the eyes in the leafs are centered in the leaf while all 2wd leafs have the eyes above the leaf.

    Nice score.... you got everything I would and for 100 cant go wrong.... no idea on the leaf springs....

    It’s an l20b w/dual Mikunis and pertronix dizzy. Block is painted red so it’s been touched before, by how much I don’t know. Couldn’t discern what kind of head but I would assume it’s something decent. No idea if I could use the tranny or how many gears it has. Trying to find out and have pics will post them shortly.

    This, try this first before selling or buying anything. Thing may look like its all smashed up but once you pull it back to where it belongs and bolt on a fresh fender it will look a lot better!

    Looks like a points dizzy no? Seller told me he swapped a F20C from an S2000 as well as 240sx suspension into his 510.

    While in the junkyard you should have looked at how they came off so you could take yours off without ripping. Pick-n-pull yards are a real learning experience. Just my opinion. Chopper Jim

    if right 90deg out of crankcase can be a L18 also or a Late Jap crate motor L16type as I had one. But all L20s had the 90deg. black timming cover don't mean anything I think I would try to get it . as parts are harderto geton east coast. See what type of head as that goes on on L motors and maybe its a closed chamber spare distributor, I hve gone threw 3 in my 25years. They wear out!!!

    Owner had a local shop build his 510 but I think he bought the 510 already modded and doesn't seem to know much about what is on those pallets. The shop that did the work is top notch and ripped everything out as you can see. saw somewhere that L20 TC has 4 bolts vs 2 on a L16/18. Also the vent pipe on the block has right angles vs straight out on the 16-18s. Its about 20 minutes away so I can get it if it makes sense, but I got no interest in anything l16. '72 510s came with a L16 + 4 speed right? Obviously some work done to this one as its got the dual mikunis and a black timing cover vs the stock silver so hopefully some other upgrades.

    Also front timing cover is 4 bolt on stop near head.

    Good eye! I gotta tack the tabs onto the axle just outside of the u-bolts to retain the hose ends. I just stuffed those there temporarily to make sure everything was going to fit. Final position will be retained outboard of the frame to prevent any clearance issues 😂

    Glued some 80 grid sandpaper to my 140 mm saw drill to round out the tail light holes. got good progress with the rear panel, I decided to cut out the section where 3 body plates meet up: here are also the welded studs at the back to mount the tail lights:

    How did you get the timing cover off with the engine in the truck?

    I got one Free and another for 50$ One had the common L20b block crack between cylinders which is common. Might or might not be a issue. If motor was good before the pull(most are KA/SR swaps) for a HiPO engine build find one with out a crack. My engine builder will not work on them for liability issues incase they split open

    The original gaskets are neoprene rubber/cork mixture and made thick enough to compress. Often owners will tighten the bolts to stop a leak and the metal around the bolt will deform. As stated (you would have to remove to replace anyway) hammer them down flat. Use a straight edge to check your work and use a new gasket. On L20Bsat the back right?corner is a flat L shaped strip he bolts go through. This spreads the pressure evenly. I don't know why only one side. I had two so cut and now the entire back is supported. 4.3-6.5 foot pounds tightening, that's barely wrist twisting tight. Use a torque wrench.

    I've paid up to $300 each for core engines, depending on which head they have. I'd consider any used engine a core, unless its installed and can be tested/run. If its sitting on the shop floor, someone had good reason to remove it from a vehicle, and talk is cheap.

    Will '78 and up disc brakes fit on the earlier king pin trucks? Why is the relay near the glove box making a buzzing sound? Oh yeah it's an '81 720 Got a SBC 350 for free!!! How would I put it into my B-210? Can I keep the 4 speed in it? Pulled all the smog crap off my engine but now it won't start, HELP! Changed the head gasket on my vintage 510 but now I can't get the timing chain to fit back on the cam sprocket. WTF? Changed the oil pump now the timing is all messed up. Engine won't turn over but cranks with the starter. WTF? Dash lights too dim how do I make brighter? Turn signals on 720 stopped working after using the 4 ways.??? HEATER ONLY HAS HIGH SPEED, help!

    Buying or selling? Do some compression readings yourself. Compression is a somewhat good indication of an engines health. Take it for a drive. Is it quiet. Does it restart when hot? Is the oil clean? Does it have a fram filter on it? 😄 Pop the valve cover off.... is the cam and valve train shiny and clean or brown stained from lack of oil changes? Same with transmission, drive it. Does it up and down shift quietly? Take out on the highway, any noise? Does it jump out of any gear? If any of this it needs rebuilding, about $500-$600 at a shop on top of what you paid for it! If you are unable to do this to either, they are worth scrap metal price. So now you have to ask yourself how accurate is the seller's information? Can I believe what he says? How much do I trust? Lets say that the engine transmission can't be examined by driving them but unknown to you, it actually is as stated..... 100K and generally in good condition and maintained and looked after and it's all you need to get your 620 mobile and on the road. $400-$500 for both would be a very good deal.
