Can I ask what thread it is on the back of the head for the coolant pipe? Want to tidy mine up a bit.


I'm not too sure actually. The original one snapped off in the head despite my best efforts with penetrating fluid and the torch. I got the machine shop to drill it out to 1/2 NPT for that brass fitting.

And I know this is the "510" realm, but I'm too proud of my latest purchase not to share it!

Hahah thanks James. Its a 74, L18 w/ A87, 5 speed. All original besides the trans, 67k miles. Has been repainted at some point and has rust forming again unfortunately. But it was an old guys frequent driver so its been maintained. Super tight little truck. Ill get some more pictures of it probably this weekend.

Thank you!
Wishing it was nicer out so I'd be more motivated to work on the car. Thinking of refreshing the front end on her soon.
Does anyone know of any RUBBER bushing kits for these cars? Just for sake of convenience.

Also the pickup has been filling up with water, lol, SOO need to figure out where that's coming from.
