    Thought I’d make you look more the age of your car, it seemed more appropriate you know like you’ve owne’d it since it was new.

    That interior panel on the inside of the hatch has a wicked curve to it. That backing board has to be condom-thin to work :)

    There'll be that one time where you lean on your engine a little more than you usually do, like a long stretch, canyon carving or up a long hill. You build for this and you don't have to worry or let off. I switched to electric fans, two of them. They were on a Subaru side by side on a wider rad than mine so I fit one blowing inward on the front and one on the inside wired backwards drawing air in through the rad. They overlap about 4". Surprisingly the engine seems to run slightly hotter on the gauge, probably because the fan isn't on all the time like it was when it was mechanical. An oil cooler removes heat from parts of the engine that coolant never gets near as well as some that it does. I don't drive this in the winter so thick oil on start up isn't a problem and that's a new car problem anyway, not so important on older engines that are more robust built. It got to 94C once. Usually in the low 80s on a warm day.

    F350 diesel Ford cooler. Free. There's a second fan behind it pulling air in. Really don't need it but it does remove engine heat. A turbo engine has to have an oil cooler, it's a must.

    When can put the front cover back on then then put the piston at top then look at the pointer. but to me it looks like a typical L16 timming set up where you have 5AFTC then the BIG mark is Zero then +5 ,+10 +15 +20 +25.. Menas he put the poiner and got a L16 crank pulley and put it on a L20 front cover. which is OK. The far notch could be a for a sawtooth timming plate which might be on the drivers side. but Im winging it here Too me that oil distributor spindal is OFF . You should have seen f rotor lined up on number 1 plug wire. Shit maybe he put the motor together wrong. Or a wrong timming mount was used but simple fix here. remember you put the crank to Zero going clockwise then look where the cam timming thru the sprocket. I seen people line up the sprocket first then look at the crank. That's wrong. Crank determines the timming reference put to TDC and put the dist back in and see where its at? Maybe it was fine and made to run this way. I think this motor is fine.Its up to you if you want to strip it down. But good learing tool. PS remember when bolting the smaller bolts it don't take much torq esp in aluminum so don't strip or break a bolt. These are not US made cast iron stuff.

    I thought about that too. I was afraid the clips holding the strips of the zig zag springs might not last un-clamping and re-clamping them a lot. 🙂 Also, I imagine the shape of the bends in the springs are different (mirror images of each other). I could not find the same size springs for these seats, available for sale. Some similar sizes, but not really that close.

    Interesting!!! When I bought the truck, there was something similar to that in the back of the King Cab, but I could not figure out how it mounted up. It was also discolored, so I wasn't sure it actually bolted to the truck anywhere. Does anyone have an ST truck showing this piece installed?

    It's the Volvo M47 5 speed manual. It has a bigger version of M90 also for the future. They share the same housing, so I could use my custom adapter to swap M90 later on if I have troubles with the M47.

    Painted the rear panel from the inside with 2k gray industrial paint, I still need to finish the welds from the seams so didn't paint it all the way. I will try to prep the outside soon too so I can start painting the acid paint and after that put some bondo over it. also the plastigauge set arrived:

    For parts, the L20B has some value. The front cover, oil pump drive spindle, crank, and depending on which head, are all worth something. The block can be valuable too, but not so much. Since I am "in the business" and a scavenger, I tend to value things like good nuts and bolts too (think front cover, valve cover and oil pan). If they can be cleaned up to make nice again, there's $25 in hardware alone on an L20B. Couple hundred bucks.

    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.

    look down the carb if the choke plate is closed when COLD then its choke is working and will run at a higher RPM. That whats it supposed to do. Once warm the choke plate should be fully open otherwise youll run Rich and maybe don't get a full throttle cause your blocking the extra air needed at higher RPM

    Honestly, I don't know what's opening the choke, I just know that the trucks fires right up, and runs. Drove it yesterday for some errands around town (about 60 miles) and no problem, runs smoothly and better

    if you have a 72 the choke 12v wire should be back there somewhere. I don't like the elelctric and went with a DGV 5a which is a pull wire choke

    Drove the 510 to Datslocos this year. Had a blast even though I had to drive home in the rain. Still don't have working windshield wipers so it was a little interesting but the car did well. On the way home I noticed my right front TC rod came loose a bit so I need to address that. I am supposed to be meeting up with Secret Factory this weekend to test fit some wheels so that should be exciting.

    So a couple weeks ago I finally got my new wheels. I have been working with love20bee for about 6 months sourcing and building a set of Riverside R101 to fit my car. After test fitting a couple wheels I finally got the right spec and color. They are 15x7.5 +19 with 185/55/15 tires. I sourced the center caps from Izanami Wheel and the stickers from dermadalton on IG; Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr

    I will tell you this... the bolt heads have an eccentric tab that spins and locks into position so the nut can be tightened. Add 40 years of rust so the nut won't come loose and the bolt head will over power this tab bending it out of the way and starts spinning. Good luck removing it now. Spray down the nut and the bolt threads with a loosening agent and let sit. Or heat with a torch because once it starts spinning the only way to remove it is to cut the nut off with a torch. There are 8 mounting bolt points with 6 on raised sections on the outsides of the frame. The 2 remaining ones are at the very rear and directly through the frame itself. Pretty obvious really. Don't forget to disconnect the filler pipe if '78 or '79 as the fuel tank mounts on the frame. Before '78 the tank is on the box so undo the fuel lines. The rear lighting harness has a round 6 wire plug at or near the right tail lights. There will also be a black ground wire to the frame somewhere near the license plate.

    It has been a busy couple of weeks. My 17 year old grand niece was shot and killed while she was holding her 6 month old baby. The guy that shot her shot 5 other people killing one other person. Police arrested him the next day. Child protective services took the baby. we held services for her on Saturday. Things are starting to settle down so Saturday I am going to work on my 520 wiring. As soon as I finish the wiring I am going to button all the engine and automatic transmission loose ends up and Doc510 and I are going to start the engine and check the timing and the valves. Next will be finish the brake and fuel lines and also run tranmission coolant lines. I have a small transmission cooler with an electric temperature operated fan. I plan on starting the body work after the engine is running.
