  1. Thank you Wayno. Good point about the curved back cab corners limiting the size of the windows. Wayno my thinking is to build the cab first then build the frame to match the cab please any sugestions will help.
  2. I had problems years ago with my Harleys running SUs. I would get up in the high country and the SU would start frosting up. When it got bad I would do like G-Duax said and pull over and let the heat of the engine thaw out the carb. Had this problem running Webers on my Harleys also.
  3. So is the sell price $1200 each?
  4. Here are a couple of pictures. My auto focus did not work.
  5. Weber stamps the base of the carb with the model and the size. All the guys above are correct.
  6. What you have done and are doing to your Weber is what I mean when I say "you need to get intimate with your Weber!" No one can tell you what jets you need as every engine and situation is different. Now this is not saying that there is no starting point this is what Weber sets the new carbs up stock with a staring point.
  7. I would find another used head and take it to your machine shop and have them go through it and be sure it is checked for cracks. If you buy a recondition head online you do not know what you are getting and if there is a problem it is a hassle at best to get anything done about it.
  8. Can you clean the rust and Por-15 over it or is it rusted through?

    Timing chain ?

    You are not a pain in the ass. Remember the only stupid question is the one not asked. These guys are knowledgeable and are trying to help you to get it done without needless work and expense. Yo have five of the best people on Ratsun helping you, Hainz the "L' Motor God, Wayno who does all of his own work, Datzenmike the encyclopedia on Datsuns, and Draker another person that does all of his own repairs, and Crashtd420 is also knowledgeable in the art of Datsuns and does put out great experienced information and has an uncanny knowledge of the 521s. Not in any certain order. Combined in these 5 people you have well over a hundred years of Datsun experience helping you! Amazing when you think about it! And guys I am not calling you all old farts as that is my title! LOL
  10. I worked on the wiring diagram to change the routing of the wires for the head, front & rear combination, backup, license plate lights, AC compressor, carburetor choke & fuel cut solenoid, and coil and the distributor wires. When you figure that by doing this I have save over 5' to 8' length on each wire this has added up to many feet of wire savings. Yes I could have left it stock, but I do not understand why auto manufacturers waist so many feet of wire on every vehicle.
  11. Clean the contacs for the light socket. Test the board contacts with a test light or multi meter to be sure your have current to light the bulb. Test the bulb and the socket. Try a differnt socket and bulb that you know works. Many was to test.
  12. Nice work on the seat brackets! Curious as to what you will be supporting with those thin little brackets? LOL

    It is May 2019 any updates?
  15. Love the brown seats! This is the truck I thought you had purchased. https://ratsun.net/topic/59583-69-521-build/ scroll down on page 24 you will see the differences in your truck and this one.
  16. Yes difrangia thank you for the heads up. I have secured the last set of BlueHands disc brake conversion kit. Those aluminum kits are just to pretty not to own one. BlueHands will be missed but if this helps Mike in the future then it is all good!
  17. Time to crawl under it and investigate.
  18. Great job on the engine! Enjoy, pictures please.
  19. Beautiful truck, more pictures please. Did you purchase this from Eric in California?
  20. The 720 chassis fit much easier than the hardbody chassis from wtching your build. I put my 520 on a 1980 720 2wd chassis. Another option I have is to put the 90 d21 KA 5 speed in the 521. Then of course the Blue Hands Inc front disk brake kit to be sure I can stop it. I am looking at the possibility of sectioning the front section of the 90 d21 frame on to the 85 720 king cab frame I have that is bent from some yahoo jumping aroyos in the northern Arizona desert. Need to take some measurements to see if this is even possible.
  21. I thought that was cheese and whine! LOL
  22. Please post the part number so I can order one from Pierce Manifolds.
  23. Good to here you are driving and feel safe in your 620.
