  1. As posted above, there are a few listed on car-part.com. Now, if they are actually still on a shelf is another thing.
  2. 10ga is good for 30amps but it would be a good idea to use 8ga if your running extension cords a long distance to account for voltage drop.
  3. Carl has been around for a while. Have bought 1200, 521, and Roadster stuff from him over the years. No issues here.
  4. Cool 1200. Should be a bast with the CA. Off topic but that Z looks like a 69/70 series 1 based on the pillar emblem and hatch vents.

    My 1971 521

    You don't *have* to remove the crank. You can drop it down a little, use a pick to pull the old one and use a tool called a "sneaky pete" to install the new upper one. Not the easiest to accomplish but it can be done. That said, my Roadster has a leaky rear main and I'm fine with it! LOL.
  6. Pics are in the link above. I believe they are from the early to mid 80's. I know it was a while ago but you and Charlie saw the truck in Williams LOL
  7. LOL, that was my truck. Those wheels are 15x6 Toyota landcruiser wheels with generic spinners. IIRC tires were 205/60-15
  8. That is pretty badass. Definitely a needed part for the 521’s. Hopefully the price is reasonable.
  9. I have used the following B series engine parts on a J13 Rocker arm shaft Rocker arm stand Rocker arm bushings Lifter cover gasket Aluminum valve cover/gasket Single DCOE intake manifold Patriot brand header I also used some transmission parts/gaskets for the late 320/early 520 floor shift smooth case 4 speed

    Plug wires??

    My 520 had a cap like the grey one. Basically was just like a regular plug wire except no boot.
  11. On the car I used a surge tank setup on, I repurposed a evap can to use as the surge tank as it had enough nipples and in good spots to perform the function. As a benefit, it fit behind the rear panel cover in the back of the wagon.
  12. Here is what I did to my 521 tank when I swapped a KA-E. I have have also done a setup with a surge tank and also used the tanks inc. module. The surge tank is probably easiest but it’s kind of messy plumbing wise. Tanks inc. setup is nice because no welding. Back when I did the 521 the Tanks inc. setup was not around or that would be the way to go.
  13. those appear to be Hoshino Impul wheels. Similar to the Work 02.
  14. I would say the pistons are standard. Not sure what the other stamping means. If it was .003 then I would say its an oversize piston for std bore as they make slightly oversize rings for when the bores need to be cleaned up with an aggressive hone (like for a small taper), but not bored. Rushn is right that sometimes it is better to just get the pistons made. It was a while ago but I had some forged JE pistons made for a U20 engine for I think $400/set. Kind of hard to justify spending that coin on a J13. When I had my 520 and needed to re-ring it, I strongly considered looking into whether it
