    521 part # thread

    Go with tdaaj's set mine need work.
  2. The New Weber kit K662 came in today. received a manual fuel pump block off plate last week. I will be cleaning out my garage tomorrow and cleaning a few more parts tomorrow. I think I will pull the seats and the dash, wiring, heater, AC, and blower boxes on Thursday to replace the carpet and the main wiring harness. I have been blowing the clock fuse when ever I hit a ruff section of road. I have been wanting to convert this truck to power doors and windows I have had for the last several years. So this is a great time to swap the main harness out in preparation of the power doors. If all goes well I will pull the engine and transmission and swap in the rebuilt Z20 and low mileage 5 speed. This will most likely happen on Saturday the 16th and finish on Sunday the 17th.

    Charlie69's 521s

    I am no longer helping Jan Blair at Blair & Son Auto Parts (Air cooled VW Wrecking Yard) so I have to have all my trucks and parts out by October 31 2019. I sold the 71 521 complete truck today with the extra 71 521 chassis. The blue cab from the 71 Cab & chassis will have the passenger floor cut out tomorrow to repair the floor in the 521 I sold today. I will keep the roof and back of the cab as there is rust in the rest. The blue cab Gene Knight gave me I will keep as it is the best of the cabs, no rust. We cut the roof off of the 67 520 today and the radiator support. The white 69 cab had the roof cut off last week for Shawn's 521. The rest of the cab was rusty and hacked so scrap it is. The 90 hardbody is homeless so will get scrapped tomorrow. The 85 720 ST with the bent frame was reduced to scrap to day as I removed all the new front suspension and brakes that was put under it a couple years ago. I am saving the rear end and the bed for my 86 King Cab and will scrap the 86 rusty bed. Tomorrow will be my last day for clean up at Blair and Son so it will be grab the last of the parts off of the 85 720, cut the back of the bed off of the of the 67 520, and cut the roof and back of of the 71 cab & chassis off. Next scrap all the remains and tow my 84 720 King Cab St to a storage area, and clean up the mess. Yes I will still be doing a quad cab in time. I might also do a Wayno 520 King Cab in the mean time since I will most likely get a 1980 720 2wd king cab this weekend. The hoarding life continues!!! LOL
  4. That is how I usually do it. I ran across the one in the picture above on ebay and it ended up costing me more than I originally paid for my 520! The second one was a little cheaper. Everything on my 520 is new or remanufactured so I thought I might as well through another handful of cash in the money pit. It was a hobby now it is a hoard!!! LOL

    Nice how yo Mike! Been using that method ever since I was in my first freshman auto shop class.

    1986 720 EGR tube

    They are available in most wrecking yards. Sometimes are very difficult to remove.
  7. It is only a "full" load when the step bumper hitch ball scrapes the pavement. That is when I stop loading my trucks.
  8. This is my 520. Yes that is a new old stock OEM speedometer and a black pastic backing plate from a 411 SS speedometer. I have one more NOS OEM speedometer for a 520/521.
  9. Just a starting point Mike, measuring angle is always the proper way to set pinion angle.
  10. 3 degrees is stock. Rule of thumb is a 1/4" carrier bearning shim for every 1" lowered. Your truck is look sweeet!

    unknown ground cable

    That is a factory ground from engine to body. That is one I keep in good condition.
  12. These are the factory ST wheels.

    620 rear axle vs 720

    I redrilled 2 bottom leafs on 85 4X4 sprin packs to center the axle in the wheel wells on my 66 520 that sits on a 80 720 2wd frame. This just for building purposes and transporting around for various work to be done. Once I get to the point of driving this truck it will go to a local spring shop and have new leaves made to set the hieght of the truck where I want it. The spring shop will set the pinion angle at the same time.

    620 rear axle vs 720

    Centering pin holes in later 720 leaves are 2 1-4" farther back if I remember correctly.

    Genaric box it is probably a Chinese knock off. Still worth looking at it though. If it is not a Weber I would not buy it.
