    521 J13 frame and L16 frame the same?

    On my 1966 520 I cut the J13 mounts off of the frame. Cut the steel mounts out of a 1980 720 frame. I bolted these to the L20B and set it and a 5 speed transmission in my 66 520 and aligned everything up making sure I had the center line of the crankshaft on line with the center of the 520 frame. My brother welded the 720 mounts onto the frame of the 520. When I went to the 1980 chassis later for my 66 520 I cut the engine mounts off of the frame of the 520 and my brother welded them back into the 720 720 frame but we pushed the engine and transmission back a 1/2" for more electric fan clearance. This was possible because we had already done a custom firewall to my 520. This is all covered in my 520 build thread.

    I firmly believe the U67 head to be the best all around L20B head for a daily driver.

    Yes I think they are just under 17" diameter. I will measure one of mine tomorrow. I keep forgetting to take my camera to where I have my 85 720 ST parts truck stored. Maybe tomorrow.

    My 1971 521

    On all the L Engines that I have installed matchbox distributors on the matchbox is towards the radiator. I have always used 1980 720 L20B distributors as these have been easier to obtain.

    This truck has a Saturn electric assist steering. It is the silver motor hanging under the steering column and dash. This is a beautiful truck.
