    Brake bleeder screw sizes

    PB Blaster is better than WD40. As I read the description it would appear that I could open the bleeder then go inside the car and pump the brakes a few time, then go close the bleeder, all by myself without getting air back in the line. Does that seem correct (which would be great) . Well if one has a long clear tube( I get medical tubes from a friend of mine whos wife is a nurse. I get a clear plastic bottle and put the end at the bottom. as you pump the brakes it will fill up. When tube is free of bubbles and dirty fluid one just closes the bleed screw. When you let off the brake what fluid that does go baqck up will be clean and no bubbles. So either way is most likely the same. as I would still have a tube to keep from making a mess

    Cam identification

    Thats correct. really its about 1.48 on the rocker ratio.but 600 is pretty big lift.

    Brake bleeder screw sizes

    go to Rockauto.com(510) and see if they have the part and in to info section they might list the threads. but soem anti seize on them also. PB blaster the shit outof it before removing On 521s its much harder as when ordering a brake wheels cylinder they dont come with the blled screws!!!!WTF and its siupposed to be SAE threads.

    Disc Brake Conversion on 71 521

    Been here a long time most dont last long .Im just a realist on this part not to hurt him but really to get him to think, do I really need to do this? and prevent another 521 from going bad. Or he gets more motivated to prove me wrong. How many I seen, "My carb dont work right" so I pull motor for KA swap?well if you cant handle a Weber carb install then your not going to do a KA install. Im not stopping him.Lets Wait and see.Maybe the 1st post should be a introduction and a photo of this truck to see where we starting at.Or is this out in the field next to a barn Hes only the next town over from me.. Ill give 1 free HELP offer in PERSON if a L motor 521. Which I have done many times. After that more than enough info is out there to keep a L motor running. Now if this is a super clean beautiful truck then I might see hope as one who has money will more likely do the correct thing. Like Mr Bigtanker.Hes done his truck over years . This just isnt a one weekend adventure. If doing a dual masteror a single ect. SAE fitting and or Metric. Lots of stuff comes into play. I can see doing the fronts as most stopping is about 80% front and the kit is out there. Rear????????

    Disc Brake Conversion on 71 521

    With only one post we got to see if he is even qualified to fix anything.or modify ect..... Otherwise if one has a stock 521 just tighten the brakes up is good enuff and dont cost much. Drive the speed limit and give 2 cars lengths when following Yes they are better but most 521 owners dont keep the rig that long as most dont even last one your on Ratsun asone never sees them again

    Timing chain wedge

    Back order now means theyll never make more. unless you get lucky. I used my L series one and it worked good you can actually feel the wedge work getting behind the tensioner as a yu jam it down in there

    Timing chain wedge

    Plate over Weber adapter cracked

    some kits have a thin 1/4 in adapater plate that may crack if overtighten then youll have idle issues, PUlling the choke will give more vaccume to suck gas thru the venturis and thus run to get home. This is another way to get home also if the idle jet is plugged form a rusted/dirty gas tank. there are the 2 piece adatpaters also which Im not sure how they work but if you heard a crack then its most like it. Once fixed and adjusted if still issue then its the points ignitions

    My 1971 521

    Choke and pump the gas. Pump the gas only works if the bowl is full and the accell pump works I do about a 2 /3 sec hit of the starter and pump gas you can feel most likel the carb fill up as the pedas resisitance changes. and should start. Motors that are rich usually has a ezer time starting. But even my Mikuni sidedrafts after a month or really about 2 months I have to pump the gas/starter for a while. Once started on . I just go 1 pump and its fine after that. but need to be everyday or so. Cold or Not it starts right up

    My 1971 521

    Being not driven also might make it harder as the gas needs to get pumped to the carb. This happens to me even not cold. then a cheap battery could be another. but it will be harder to start no matter what. If timed correctly and valve are gapped correctly it will start. but not immediatly like a new FI motor. Just the way it is

    521 Front Inner Wheel Bearings KOYO 32KB02

    good idea is try to find parting out 521 and grab the whole hub. I got spares 2set which one never has to worry about as that should last more than a lifetime

    McKinney Motorsports products, how do you rate them?

    I thought they went out of bussiness. Well maybe from Ratsun owners(no money)

    My 720 smokes more than I do!

    ck to make sure the oil sender is not leaking and running to the back of the pan making it look like a rear seal or pan gasket
