#1533014 Valve cover gasket half moon fell into timing cover. retrieval?

Posted by dat521gatherer on 04 December 2017 - 08:40 PM

Turn vehicle upside down and shake. It should fall right out.

 

Welcome aboard Wanye.

 

Maybe try one of these grabbing tools you can snake down there and fish around with.

#1526914 Manual choke cable? 71 521

Posted by dat521gatherer on 02 November 2017 - 08:48 PM

I dont get the keeping the stock choke cable?   buy a Generic.  You already took the stock wheels with hubcaps off to put chevy wheels on. whats the difference.

Because it wouldn't match the other four knobs. Who wants to swap out one stock wheel and roll down the road with a single chevy wheel.

#1514330 Paint code/color of my 71 521?

Try looking at your tag with flashlight from many different angles. Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of a faded number. Also inverting the colors on a camera can bring it out. I took over 100 pics on my truck trying to read the tag. I got it though. Knowing what the number might be helps a lot.

Always divide your mileage by how many gallons you use not how much your tank holds.

Whats wrong with your steering wheel? You could put a 520 steering wheel on as a upgrade in my opinion. Finding a nice one would be hard though.

If your door locks and ignition match you can just buy the locking gas door and glove box lock and take the tumblers out and rearrange them to match your key.http://community.rat...ch=1#entry80275

Nice truck. Unlike other guys if I deem your truck worthy I'm willing to let my parts go. No reason to put perfect parts on a junk truck. I've given away or sold parts before just to see them end up at the junk yard and buy them back. Remember Ebay is your friend (unless your selling)

Cosmo any word on the wood faux? This is from a 1974. Seems like the center console is easier to find than the dash pan itself. The center console in my 75 is wood faux but the dash pan had the silver stripe.

I got it all back together after looking for the sensor light shut off. Digital dash and leather or pleather.

Sometimes the door doesn't open from the inside. Nothing is broken except a unrelated piece. The parts are just worn out with massive amounts of rusty tension and slop. A little wd-40 fixed it up for now.
