Found myself with a 71 (i think) pl521. It was runnin sortof when i got it. Though it was flooded not too long afterwards. After 3 yrs of sitting, ive finally found an opportunity to put some work in it and get it running again.
Ive basically been handed a mid 80's pathfinder with what i believe to be a z24 motor, still gotta verify. It runs tho the pathfinder is barely recognizeable as its been thoroughly stripped. I plan to pull the entire drivetrain out of the pathfinder and drop it into the 521. I dont expect many issues with the drivetrain, tho the 521 is in bad shape.
Rust in many places and multiple missing parts should make this a bit of an undertaking. Im hoping to end up with a driveable 521 that rides well, has good braking and is a stable platform for further upgrades/modifications.
As im sure you folks are aware, parts and knowledge on the older vehicles isnt common much anymore. Or perhaps i just havent found it yet. Any Info/advice I can get would be greatly appreciated as the sooner I can get this done, the better.
These are some photos of how it looked when I first got it.
Yes, thats a cone filter sticking out of the hood.... Yes, the hooks have been torn from the bedside...This i Must rectify, ideas?Ill have to snap a few updated ones this weekend before i get to far along.
