  1. 85 720 Weber installation video
  2. The Chineese Weber knockoff usually fail right out of the box. Research has shown about 50% failure rate out of the box. EMPI is a Weber knock off builder and seller. As far as your your question, " What happens with the Chinese one when it goes bad?" The carburetor will run rough, lean, or rich, or not at all. Changing the jets will most of the time help with either lean or rich condition. The build quality of the Chinese Weber is poor at best. In most cases you can not tune the Chinesse Weber to run smooth and fuel efficient. Here are acouple of videos to help Identify and understand the true Webers.

  3. Wayno, that is way tighter than I would like my engine compartment Wayno. My radiator takes up much more room than you as it is 27" across and with the shroud and the 2
  4. That is way tighter than I would like my engine compartment Wayno. My radiator takes up much more room than you as it is 27" across and with the shroud and the 2 12" fans are about 7" thick. I can squeeze the battery in there but it will make my additional electrical, the AC dryer receiver and AC hoses rather cramped also.
  5. Just curious Mr Tanker is you engine pictures in the engine porn section also?

    Wayno you are correct the length from the firewall to the radiator support is the mane hurdle. but there are several other hurdles to over come also. Wayno, one thing I am running into is with the wiring that I am adding is the battery, I am going to move the battery to the front passenger side under the bed floor. Considering making a sliding battery drawer like motor homes and travel trailers use. This would be cut into the side of the bed using the cutout section of the bed to make the front of the drawer.

    You might have a read through my 66 520 thread as it cover some of the major hazards you will run into. I swapped a L20B automatic into my 520.
  11. I grind the sides of my grease bun tip to fit.

    Just bought a 521

    I prefer this one. Flywheel lock
  13. I will check the wrecking yards over the next couple of weeks. There are a couple 4x4s in the yards. Can I get an overall length of the bolt please. These are much longer than the 2wd bolts. It looks by part number that Hardbody are different.
