  1. Thats to funny... Ya it doesn't translate to well in the pic.... it's not much . But enough to bother me.. if you look at the driveside gap first then you see it. the passenger side of the truck looks like it got hit at one point in its life... And plus the front corner isn't quite where it should be.... I don't feel it's gonna be to hard to get it where I need...
  2. The good thing is I stuck the fenders on in anticipation of going and found out the passenger side fits like crap.... I say good because I haven't painted it yet..... so I should probably do the same with the doors before painting anything else... I guess that's what happens as you fix and straighten things..... Kind of a wide gap... plus this up front.. Not quite right.....
  3. Well damn.... it didn't fit on the trailer.... trailer was too short..... unless I can find another one to borrow the 521 will be missing the show.... So I tried to lay the carpet in.... and that didn't go so well either... Front fit good along the firewall... But Under seat had some wierd hump molded in.... So the box say 68-83. That's covers alot of models.. Well hopefully I can make this a 2 piece carpet and make it look good... atleast the cut I need to make will be under the seats.... and just trim the sides....
  4. Couldn't you drill and tap for an npt/hose barb connection where needed?
  5. Your probably right with that air leak... just wondering if you can bench test the injectors before you reinstall.... Make sure they all spray the same and work Not sure if possible or how but might be worth looking into.....
  6. Got to luv it.... once you see it you just can't unsee it....
  7. The ground and refill each month....
  8. Poked around on carpartsmanual sight.... definately doesn't list one.... looks like the 620 is when the started using one.....
  9. I don't believe they ever came factory on the 521.... most rig something....
  10. I will definately be there for the show... If my 521 fits on the trailer it's coming too...
  11. Thanks for the comments.... finally back to forward progression..... Next will probably be the carpet so I can permanently install the seats.... Actually hoping to take it to a show in 2 weeks... got a friend coming by with a trailer if I can fit it I'm going if not I'll just be a spectator.... don't have the extra cash to rent one for the day....
  12. Well i had a few hiccups getting started but i got it done.... May not be a show car paint job but atleast I got a consistent color and everything seems nice and smooth... The hood with the semi gloss accent... I just put the emblem on for the pic.... I'll probably repaint the emblem too since all the chrome will be semi gloss....
  13. Thanks charlie... and I had thoughts of some color but even my wife likes the flat black.... in the end the flatblack just fits with my hole end vision of the truck..... Hopefully the contrast to the semi gloss accents will show the direction i am going with the paint..... Pics coming soon....
  14. So was that one connected and running in the truck? What you called an altenator relay is the voltage regulator for the altenator.... With out it the voltage from the altenator is unregulated.... Later models went to an internally regulator ... You'll need to sort out the regulator wiring....
  15. Are you planning to pull the transmission out with it? Hopefully just the block... With the head off maybe use some straps around the block... I would think ratchet tie down even have enough strength.... Use a rag or block of wood on the edges even if they are not sharp....
  16. Well i finally bought the paint... just showed up friday.... Cabs is as ready as it's gonna be.... won't be perfect but it will be better then it was and atleast the color will be what I wanted in the first place.... Tomorrow morning I just need to do a final wipe down and a once over with a tack cloth and then paint... crossing my fingers.... I have a better idea of what I am doing this time and I had a second unused paint gun so I'll be using that tomorrow.....
  17. I used the centric parts for my 521.... try to make sure it's new not a remanufactured one atleast....
  18. I forgot to mention something... the different master requires a little dremeling of the mounting holes... They need to be elongated slightly to be able to install it.... it's not much at all.... I am pretty sure i read that's normal when doing the swap on the 521 master....
  19. It would probably be easier to talk about what upgrades you want... somethings could be used all though I don't know exactly what..... Clutch master is available for the 521 so why bother with a 620 master.. Radiator I think they list the same ones for the 521 and the 620... so i guess it would work.... Beyond that I don't know unless you get specific....
  20. Basically the rotor would be pointing in the wrong direction compared to where it should if the motor is a tdc on the engine.... Also if it's something your checking it needs to be checked at tdc of compression stroke.... if your not on the compression stroke that will also make it seem off 180 Does that make sense? Why do you ask?
  21. Well there is no work in progress category at this show but they said even in its current state to bring it if I wanted to.... so I guess if the respray goes well this weekend I might be going to my first car show....
  22. I bet the wheel base would be alot closer.. nice idea.....
  23. I thought you can just clear over that roof.... right? Doesn't rust need oxygen to keep rusting? .. I see It done all the time and always wondered about it....
  24. Oh one thing I don't know is the what the output of the zcar transmission is.... The 4spd in the 521 I believe had a bolted in flange.... the later ones from a 620 had a slip joint there... so that may be something you need to check out...
  25. Any z car 5spd should work as you stated... they are long so i'm not sure how the rear mount is done.... plus i believe the shifter will be closer to the seats, at least if you still have the bench. Someone like datzenmike will probably clearify any problems....I know the best way is what's waiting for me in my basement.... it's a short ZL71B, transmission from the napz motor.... I bought an lseries bell housing from a z car transmission and plan on swapping bellhousings ... what is nice about that is it's the same length as the stock 4spd.. no drive shaft moding and I am pretty sure it bolts right to the factory rear mount.... ( haven't actually bolted mine in so I can't say for certain)
