  1. Thanks for the tips! I had read that people widen the ports on the W53 a bit to help with airflow so I was planning on that. I know people go up to a 2mm bore so the 1mm definitely sounds like a good middle ground. I appreciate the feedback
  2. Hey everyone, So I've collected some of the main pieces of the future engine for my 71 goon. I've got: - L20b block with crank - W53 closed head - dual 40mm mikunis I also have W58 head to take rockers and springs from if I want. This is going into my goon intended to be a daily driver so I'd like some power down low for around town but still be able to cruise fairly comfortably on the freeway. No machine work has been done yet. I'm looking for some advice from people who may have done a similar build. I think I plan on runni

  7. Hey gang, I'm new around here. I finally picked up a '71 510 wagon a few months ago after wanting one for years. The project I started on day 1 was getting the wiper system to work. After repairing all of the linkage and trying to get the motor rebuilt, I decided to just go for the swap to a new wiper motor but I cannot figure out the wiring. Here is the motor I bought: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M03B258?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share None of the wiring diagrams I've found for the motor seem to match since it's a reproduction. I'd really appreciate s
  8. I'm also very interested if you could provide a link or contact!
