And what year 510?
That was still external regulator right?

 

Mine was a Remy 14118 from RockAuto listed for a 70-73 510. It came as a remanufactured Hitachi. $62

Yes, ER.

I believed you the first time... I don't know where 24" came from...
At least i know now to add the tire size variance to the equation....

Everything I read/found about OE tire size on a mounted stock wheel ends up at 24.8". When I measured what I had when I first got my 521, OE sizing everything...less than 25".

195/65R15 on a 8 inch wide wheel is 24.8".

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

The tire in the pic is a bias ply tire....the original spare.  I thought I remembered them being a bit taller, but I take lots of pics so I don't have to rely on memory! LOL  I'm pretty sure they were 6 ply tires.  Just looked at the pics again.....yep...6 ply.  .

 

If that radial were a 70 series, it would probably be just right.


Don't have to be too bright to be me!! :D
Sadly, I prove this nearly everyday!!! :(

Shush, he's happy with it. That's what matters, your opinion does not

Lol you really think he would tell anyone, ahh yes Mr. Peterson I was taken a piss and everything got dark like there was an eclipse, when I look back to see what was making the shade when WHAM!! Cock hit me right in the face. I don't know whose it was but we could match up the bruise.

I never have a point to the things I do..... why build an L16, why all the switches and gauges, because why not?
It's more fun to ratrod/madmax it out, it was never gonna be all original so I figure why not do what I want.... any thing is reversible and the floor is so rusted with hole what's one more....
I actually wanna do a square stack in the end as a kick back to our square exhaust ports of the cylinder head....
Atleast it not on a trailer....

That’s true it’s not on a trailer. You should run 2 like Big Peterbilt.

I say let him keep cutting holes in a 521.

The more damage he does to his, the more the value of mine goes up.

Just cranking up Dp with the trailer comment, needed to add an extra zing...
And the stacks ideally would be 2 square tube stacks, a set on each side, one though an exhaust cutout and the other through the muffler... i saw this once and it got me thinking..

Bro it’s all good. I was just going through your thread. Love it. I could not load up your video how did the dyna turn out. I’m doing a small engine build on my wagon. Check it out. All stock 1800 with ITB’s and crank trigger. But burning oil so got a 210 head but all reworked and now either a L20 or mother 1800. Going to Canby this year.

The whole dyno thing was more of an adventure getting there because of the snow.... the dyno itself was boring....
It was only there to get the timing set and to break the motor in, and cam in...
I prepared for an appocolips with bags of spare anything i thought i might need...
I needed nothing, the engine ran, i think the only thing I had to do was a quick clutch pedal adjustment but that was it.... basically just drove at different speeds and rpm for half hour and letting the engine compression brake a few times..
I needed the professional because I had no idea about detonation and pinging so I needed to know if I had to shut it down.. luckily it hasn't been an issue..

With all the hole cutting is your truck getting lighter in weight?
