Don't know if it helps, but there's a L motor in the Newark Pick N Pull all the way in the back. Going to need some work. Someone took the head off so some rain got in the cylinders but nothing real bad. It's there. Thought about pulling it and then came to my senses...like I need another motor or trans at my house.

sooo i need a new motor for my 71 521 and i can get a r16 for free and i dont know alot about these motors besides they were in the roadsters and i was wondering would this motor be a huge down grade or what? just wondering


in short.. don't use a roadster engine. The 521 came with the L series stock (well in the later years) and would be a lot easier to swap. Get an L20b and call it good.
