    Another 521 on BAT

    Could be a leaky heater core or something. Has the original door placards. They look exactly like mine.
  2. I don't think he needs any help sleeping at night. He has parts that we don't.
  3. Dude, you got a lime green ZL1?

    Just bought a 521

    Decided to make another pair of door lock knobs, but for the truck this time.

    Wats are here!
  6. I feel like we should get your hand-me-downs.

    Looks like a challenger.

    I was just going to say the same thing. You can’t measure amps via the cig lighter. Ammeters work by being a fusible link, and the entire system needs to run through it to work properly. Voltmeter reading 13.5-15 sounds perfectly fine. Usually a properly charging alternator will read around 14.2-14.5 depending on the state of the system.

    Just ordered a set of Watanabes for my roadster!
  10. The pretzels are alright. Not really worth the ridiculous amount of money. I’ll probably buy more, but only once in a while.
  11. On the shifter, remove the cross pin and replace with a bolt and nylock nut. Tighten sufficiently to pull the fork together, then slightly back the nut off.

    The one that I just took out was an Autozone Duralast standard, and it made it 9.5 years. It was dated 04/10

    Those are nice, but I didn’t want to spend a fortune.

    Overkill, but yeah, any of them would work. Depends on whether or not you want to make a custom tie-down or not, etc. Red top has better CCA, but yellow top has higher capacity and reserve. (Both with significantly more CCA than what our trucks require.) AGM batteries tend to last longer and are less affected by the cold, neither of which I really care about, so I just went with a standard lead acid. Plus, my stock battery frame fit like a glove. (I brought it with me to test fit.)

    Well, I ended up getting a size 34 Duracell. It’s the same size, but lower, and almost 700CCA, which I’ll never need. I do have some audio equipment, but nothing crazy. Should be good for the next 10 years.

    Curious what everyone is running for batteries? Mine was DOA this morning. Between the previous owner and myself, it made it almost 8 years. I want to "upgrade" to something smaller and lightweight possibly. Is anyone running a group size 26?

    Was bored during lunch today, so I made some door lock knobs. They kinda look like cigarettes, which was unintentional.

    Wish my lawn looked half as good as that. Some kind of weed killed half my shit this summer.

    Yes. The measurements he gave you are diameter, so you subtract the piston from the bore, and divide by 2. In a perfect world, the piston is completely round and centers itself, so the clearance would be uniform all the way around.

    My 1971 521

    Do you suck at math or what? His current measurement are 3.389 for the cylinders and the pistons range from 3.385 to 3.386. That gives a radial clearance between .0015 and .002.

    I'd just run it. Do a quick hone to scuff up the walls for new rings and put it back together.
  22. mainer311

    My 1971 521

    I think you mean .003" clearance. Sounds perfectly fine to me, and highly depends on piston material/expansion.

    521 with G35X AWD

    There was a kid at Japanese Car Day this year with those same exact bucket seats in his 620. It was the most uncomfortable thing I've ever sat in.
  24. I wanted something that looked original, and this was the only option. I’m running a stock Hitachi, and it seems to be keeping up with the carb just fine. For the price, I figured I’d just buy a couple spares.
