    Looking for the passenger side but will take both if in good condition. TIA


  3. yeah it is...Odd that its only the one rusting so I can just assume it was replaced at some point. Will give the steel wool a try.
  4. Exact reason why I bought this truck. My other car got a flat and there was no way I was getting 4 x 305s in the back of it.

    Just bought a 521

    Mainer does your truck diesel after you shut it off? Mine does every once and awhile but using a Weber 32/36 which doesn’t come with anti dieseling mechanism. They do sell them though. Ever consisder ditching that hitachi for a Weber?

    Measured the clutch spring and it came out to 8 3/4", can anyone confirm their brake return spring is the same length?

    Mainer can you measure your brake spring? Maybe I can find a matching one if I know the length. Looks like they maybe the same length but to mikes point just different hook ‘ends.’

    Your sure? It looked to me they connected the same way but for some reason I got no brake spring. Don’t think I ever had one.

    question regarding my brake pedal. I don’t have a return spring on it but my clutch pedal does. Should here be a return spring on the brake pedal? And if so anyone got a link to a replacement one?

    Selling stock 521 wheels with hubcaps. Come with Hankook white walls in 185/75/14s and the stock spare with tons of tread. Near mint condition, no rash bends or anything like that. No idea how much or if they are even worth anything. I can't use them (disc brakes) so they are either going to a good home or into the trash. Located in DMV (DC MARYLAND VIRGINIA) area or I can ship on your dime.

    Can someone tell me how to drop the spare tire? NVMD got it down, is there a market for stock 521 wheels/white walls and hub caps? Hate to throw them away.

    Yeah mine didn’t come with any. I think I am OK for now. Couple little things but the truck is back on the road so I am happy.
