I'm working on it!  Moving it across the county today.  There has been a lot going on including the sale of the property where my rides were stored...  Sold my green truck to a kid in high school looking for a project for vocational tech and the yellow truck is headed an hour out of town this week.  All I have now is the 521 and a little cash to keep her going lower!

A guy just happened to catch me at the right time and we agreed on the right price before I had to move the green truck.  The yellow truck is going back to the original owner, who requested that I give them a shout if I ever decided to sell.  Sadly I'm down to one datsun, but I have a 32/36 conversion kit in the mail and bought a mikuni side draft manifold for my *cough* toyota...Dead

I really need an L16 oil pan and oil pick up...  When I sold the green truck I gave the guy the original L16 and completely forgot about needing it until I went to steer my 521 and realized the idler arm was unbolted....  DOH,  totally forgot the L20 oil pan was in the way...  It looks like I could almost take the cross rod and bolt it to the bottom side of the idler arm and steering gear arm and clear the L20 pan, damn!  Had to use a strap from the steering gear arm to the passenger side tie rod to keep the wheels from turning out!

It's pretty funny story of moving the 521 actually.  I borrowed a truck from my buddy and towed the 521.  The ground is real wet where it's parked and I tried pulling through and the truck just slid and spun one tire no matter what...  Think my buddy pinched a new seam in his seat, lol.  Ended up dropping the truck on the lower part of the property and tried making the loop again without the truck in the trailer, btw this is a 06 F150 2wd...  I made it about 20ft further this time and it started spinning and even jack knifed a little.  I was mad at this point because of the piss poor rear end in the trucks and unhooked the trailer, moved it to the side and backed the truck out..  We went back to my jeep, I went straight to the trailer and hooked up and pulled that trailer out the way that light butt f150 wouldn't!  Now that the truck is at it's new home I can focus on it more than ever!  I should have moving under its own power, I hope, by the middle of March!
