    Well that's an issue if it physically wont fit through..... To release the clip go from the back side, slide something if thin and flat and it should easily pull out..... use a flashlight and you should see what I mean... Make sure you plug them back in correctly

    Usually a really small screw flat screwdriver or pin puller tool.... but you risk breaking the tab.... Just take the housing out it will be much easier unless the whole thing is rusted in there....

    You might have to take the entire light assembly out

    You should be able to pull the stock ones right out there.... should be a grommet where the wires enter the headlight bucket....

    Have you ordered the rockers yet? I could probably also send you a rocker or 2..... I put new ones in the head I'm using so I have 16 extra that I'll probably never use, plus all those L20b gaskets.... Text me if you want them and we can work something out.....

    You should have stripped it for parts before tossing it.... But if it's gone then its gone......

    Oh.... that's a good point.....

    They are itm brand and only cost $10 .... Vs oem rockers from nissan( still available) but cost closer to 25-30.... Dp dont you have a spare L16 too.... Rob that head, you have 8 rockers at your disposal to find the best one....

    Heating up

    Well I would start with the thermostat then.... altenator would have zero to do with it over heating....

    Did you change anything around that time?

    That helped on my 521, but the original radiator was kind of done.... plus when I rebuilt my motor I was amazed at the extra rust chips loose inside the block.... Definitely check your timing I have heard that before too... Another thing is what's your fan setup? I have seen it where you have the fan on the water pump with no shroud and the fan just cant doing its job correctly....

    Have you ever flushed the radiator or block.... Look down the radiator cap.... how does that look? Is the radiator full of shit? If you flush it disconnect the hoses and flush in the reverse of the actual coolant flow..... That's where I would start.....

    Same here....
  15. Soak in pb or wd40 and get some heat on it.....
  16. Looks like it's as simple as ordering from autozone.... as long as I entered the right info....

    I'm using a gates XL7350.... I had the same altenator as mainer311, I went to the internally regulated one and it was physically the same same size.... You need to get the belt on first then bolt up the alternator....
  18. Crashtd420

    My 1971 521

    You'll just need a shorter belt to keep it closer to the block....
  19. Crashtd420

    My 1971 521

    Yup I'm backwards.. looked at the wrong pic.. Just went out to my truck and had a look... it would have S and L on the back if it was internally regulated... F and N for the external....
  20. Crashtd420

    My 1971 521

    That looks like an internally regulated one.... no idea on amps.... Can they test it at a parts store for amps or do they just give a voltage reading?
  21. Crashtd420

    My 1971 521

    That was my original upgrade before I got rid of the regulator.... the one from the 200 sx is the same size and 60 amps as well as internally regulated.
  22. Crashtd420

    My 1971 521

    They might be 50 and still externally regulated.....
  23. I could physically move the joint side to side inside the cups..... not much but enough..... Vibrating was felt over 45 mph, sometimes there was even a sweet spot and it would go away temporarily..... but kind of felt like driving over a road waiting to be repaved..... Well they repaved the highway I drive on and I was still feeling it.....
  24. Haven't made it on the highway yet but I was able to get up to 50 on a stretch of road in town and already a noticeable difference with the new u joint....
  25. Charlie are they even the correct pistons for the block? They look like they have four reliefs for only 2 valves.....
