    HVAC in 1971 Datsun 521 Pickup with L20B

    I am considering getting a climate control system in my 1971 Datsun 521 Pickup with L20B researching on the internet and an old post from Charlie69 I found this product for $481.00 A/C KITUNIVERSAL UNDER DASH EVAPORATOR HEAT AND COOL 12.000 BTU 404-1 12v I would love to hear before ordering, any information and experience that you may be able to provide I have a good idea of where to mount the compressor to the left side of the engine will probably have to make a bracket. My other concern is the Evaporator fitment behind the grill in front of the Radiator. Do you think I will I be able to remove my working stock heat system including defrost. can't tell if it has defrost capabilities Should I order a stand alone A/C or one that mounts behind the seat.or something else I have about 400-500 budgeted for this project and I am doing it myself (except for all the great help from ratsun.net) There is not a selection of pick a part yards around here I have been looking to see if something used could be fitted but i would not rule out that either if it can get it under budget.

    Pinging under power and drive train Q's

    I though I would do an update. I drove around without the stat for a while and my heat problems seemed to lessen. It is still running about half way between the mark and the red, after mixed driving. It is no longer builing any more heat on the highway in fact it usually cools down a tiny amount. I am still just running the distilled water with just a little bit of antifreeze that was in the block. Still considering a new Radiator or maybe switch to electric fans. I was at the parts store the other day getting the oil change stuff for my Mitsu and got a Mr Gasket 160 High flow stat. so that is in the truck now. I will post any other things I do.

    my 521 is backfiring now ? what could be causing it?

    What Mike is saying is, guys this is a dead post! The person is no longer even here probably. The original post was made 2 years ago. Just some fun at Charli69's expense. Happy 4th of July 521'ers

    Since it's been backfiring a couple years now I say "if it's not backfiring it's not running" don't even worry about it LOL

    Pinging under power and drive train Q's

    I think I did a compression test prior to installing it. I don't remember the numbers specifically but they were all about the same. I do have my other L20B that i burned down the head on so I could have it rebuilt. Since the heat symptoms were the same for both motors and the L16 I think it has to be the rad I found an aluminum one I can afford on ebay for 117.00. So when I have the truck back from the alignment shop I will most likely buy it. I think I am going to go with 2 row so that i have the room for a condenser later on I really want to get A/C in the truck, as much as I am driving it, or just sell the 521 and the 620 and the 3 motors and 3 trans I have. and buy a truck something with 4 doors or an extended cab and air. But as much as I complain about the 521 I am probably too bonded to it now to do any of that.

    datzenmike This is number one after driving around all day and the gap change racerx I agree it looks to be running lean so what do you do to the stock Hitachi carb to fatten it up? I could be also that it is just running hot and that is why they look that way like Charlie69 said

    Pinging under power and drive train Q's

    I opened the gap on 1 from 30 to 40 thousands see if it cleans it up tonigh. 103 here today still not "overheating" but it is still running hot 1/2 way between the line and the red, at least with the thermostat out when I turn it off and start it again in the valves don't chatter
