Hey ratsun folks, I just thought I would throw this out there for you to look at maybe come up with some ideas or whatever. Only 1 or 2 of my gauge bulbs were working in my 521 so I pulled the gauges out to see if it was maybe something else and ordered new led bulbs. All of the pins for the wiring plug were a little loose so I fixed those with some solder. The chrome bezel was rusted and pitted so I sanded primed and painted it blue. The needles for the gauges were faded, used my wife's bright red nail polish and put 3 coats on the needles. Since it was all taken apart I decided I might as well paint the grey as it also was a little faded. The bulbs came in so I popped out the little green dome light covers and installed the lights. Also the blinker indicators were originally a thick material I took that out and glue in some thin blue plastic. I'm thinking my voltage regulator is no good? Neither the temp or fuel gauges are working at the moment ๐Ÿ˜– anyways Here's a couple pics!

I put the seats in 2 weeks ago and I also cleaned up the gauges a bit with some new paint.20161231_191607_HDR_zps7bj0yyld.jpg

Welcome the Ratsun Dennis.

What's the build date on your truck? You have the reflector markers which means built 69 but you title says 70. Is it built 69, titled 70? That's what mine is

The blue 521 was probably Pablo. I have a weber air filter box lower tray and lid if you need one, real cheap.

Craig get on making those steering column boots for the fire wall, dudes using duct tape.[/qquote

The title says 1970

Below spark plug #4 will be a flat section/plate.

It will say L16, L18, L20B there.
