  1. Nice set of carbs. Sorry if that sounds dirty.
  2. Thank you for the kind words. The lesser availability in parts is why I have upgraded so many parts on my 520 to newer more available parts. The ride quality and handlig of the 720 chassis is far superior to the 520. Not to mention the vented rotor disc brakes. The funny thing is the 720 chassis uses the same shocks front and back as the 520, 521, & 620.

    Lack of tach.

    After I clean my Weber I use a dry silicone spray to lube the mechanical linkage. The dry silicone lubricant goes on wet and quickly drys off.

  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Just curious Mr Tanker is you engine pictures in the engine porn section also?

  11. Nice work. Do you happen to have any pictures of the trailer you haul this truck on?
  12. Road signs make great floor patch material.
