    Anyone have updated info on board changes? I still can't access this thread from email notices, and I can't find ANY thread I've ever started on this board... actually, I can't find any of the model forums (like 520, 521, etc). Are they gone?

    I was in high tech R&D for 3 decades, first as a design engineer, and eventually moving up into senior management overseeing engineering groups around the world. I do understand the challenges of code changes... and am glad never to have dealt with them directly in production environments (of course, we broke stuff all the time in our test labs... and had the occasional red hot field issue that percolated up as a result of a bad rollout).

    I havent seen anyone bitching. Just commenting on open issues.

    Yep, reset password, broken avatar image links, and following email notification link (even when logged in) gets this... Upgrades can be a challenge for sure. I can safely say I rarely like upgrades... but mostly because I'm an old dog, and they often require new tricks.

    The email notification link didn't work. It said page didn't exist. I had to find your thread manually.
  6. Hey, @Charlie69. I think you lucked out going automatic... because the master and clutch cylinders are way too close to get a booster on the master without a complete rethink of the mounting. They both mount to the firewall maybe 2-3" apart :(

  8. I don't know what kind of pedal performance you'd have with it on drum/drum, but I'm using 1978ish dual from a 280 for my disc/drum setup (see link to his stuff in first post).

    How much do drive your vintage Datsun???

    My '68 520 is my daily driver, but I don't get out much so maybe 4-5k miles per year, tops. Longest single trip was about 375 miles when we moved from DFW to SA. 08/2015 12/2017

    Info on seats for my truck

    Where are you in TX? I'm in SA. How much of a cluster do you have (none at all, or one that's not working)? I may have parts and/or be able to help you get working if you are local to me.

    I've been casually using Flickr since 2005, just after Yahoo bought it. Of course, Verizon now owns Yahoo... so you never know its future. It's been reliable and it's got a relatively intuitive user interface. For most pics I post here, I use a domain I'v had for close to 20 years (myattitudesucks.com). If a link dies there it's my own damn fault.

    You would have to edit every single image link to the new URL.

    Project "MX520" TOP SECRET

    On his new show, Kaufman is building a big rig racer for an event at PPIR, where @Bob3 is the head honcho. Kaufman shows up to get a few exploratory laps on the track, so Tommy (one of Bob's son) gives him a spin in the Datsun... then lets Kaufman drive the Datsun for a few laps. Show is currently cycling on Discovery Channel.
