  1. My brother has a 1996 Hardbody SE truck that is having electrical issues and I was wondering what other vehicles I can search for in the J.Yard for parts for that year truck. Specifically the main connector of the wiring harness that goes into the top of the alternator.

    Unfortunately Irwindale speedway will be closing down in favor of an outlet mall within the next year or 2, would have been really great for me there!!

    Well, I've looked around for the past hour online for the collar, no luck. I guess I need to put the word out here for the right one or play with the length of the slave push rod?

    Finally got a 521. and it's my daily driver!

    Hang in there bro, these are great lil' trucks and you'll get past the things that are bugging you. At least you can drive yours, mine is still in "project" stage!

    My 521 project- new to Ratsun

    Nice truck! I agree about the rims, they don't look right on that truck though. Have fun! B)

    So I took it off, tapped off the old bearing (I have a new one) and the collar measured 1-1/2" (38mm). Is this the tall one that mates to the 200mm pressure plate?

    Thanks bro, I'll look into it straight-away!

    I'll pull it out in the morning, thanks again Wayno!

    So maybe I'll get lucky and the collar on the release bearing is right or close, how is it measured? I'll pull it off the shaft and check.

    So Per Wayno's suggestion I removed the pressure plate and measured it across, got just at 7"-15/16ths, just under 8" which as I understand would make it a 200mm clutch, right?

    Good thing my show is on stage all week, it gives me some time to work on this beast!

    I guess I have to look for it, it was never all together, just a truck full of parts. I'll start looking now, wish me luck! Here is the pressure plate and disc in place.
