Re-core or replace RAD?

18 September 2017 - 08:32 AM

Just wondering what the general consensus is, I have the original copper rad in my truck which seems to have sprung a leak.   


I can get it re-cored or I can just buy a Koyo, what say you? 


L16 hesitating, quits and hard to restart

Truck gave me fits today.  


Took my son to school and on the way back on the freeway going 55-60 it started to hesitate in 4th.  Got off the freeway and then it died a couple times on the way home.  It sat for a couple minutes in between dying, fired up and ran, then would die, wait a couple minutes then it would run again.  When it died and I would try to start it would sometimes idle and sometimes not, if I rev'd it up and it would rev ok but if I tried to drive (load) it would die.  By trail and error I made it home.  Once I got home the truck sat for 10-15 minutes then I drove it around for 10 minutes no issues whatsoever.  


Any idea what could cause this?

Anyone have a part number for these?  



Paint code/color of my 71 521?

01 September 2017 - 07:02 AM

Paint code is gone from the engine bay and I have no idea what it is.   So much conflicting information on the web.  


Blue 567 or Island Turquoise 568?  Neither of which were used in 1972 according to this site.  




This BAT article says 567 and has to be same color as mine.  https://bringatraile...n-521-pick-up/ 






Brake Lights not working w/headlights on..521

31 August 2017 - 04:10 PM

My brake lights work fine when the headlights are off but when my headlights are on they dont change much at all, maybe just a smidge brither.   Turn signals work fine, high beams work and so do the flashers.   


When my lights are off and I push the brake the two middle RED lights light up.  When I turn my headlights on the same middle lights light up but when I push the brake almost nothing changes.   I am not even sure what is supposed to happen when I push the brakes with my headlights on,  I assume those middle lights get brighter?  If so maybe I have the wrong kind of bulbs in there? What bulbs should I have? I can see what looks like another filament lighting up but its so slight its barely noticeable.
