WTB: 66' 520 parts

#1

Post by jtinluvr » Sat Dec 14, 2013 5:24 pm

Looking for the following as either NOS or really nice used for my restoration in progress 520. Please note this is a very early 520, so some things may be different to even the later 66' trucks.................

Right turn signal assembly. I have a base, so if someone has the rubber, trim and lens, that would work also.

Rubber (?) plugs in the trans tunnel for the trans dipstick and trapazoidal hole behind the shifter. May be the same as 65' floor shift 320.

The castle nut that holds the Pitman arm to the steering gearbox. Got lost somewhere in the disassembly

Fuel door. Needs to have the little tab inside.

Thanks, Mark

Your likely going to have to lower your standards a little, NOS is just hard to come by on a early 66, there are some clear front lenses on ebay right now, they may be NOS.

Here is one amber lense.

Sorry, but it looks like the amber sets were bought or the auction expired.
I cannot recall ever seeing the early rear lenses offered, in NOS or aftermarket.
I bought a set of aftermarket front turn signal assemblies off ebay a couple years ago, they come up every once in a while, if another set shows up, I would buy them if I were you, and if you find a NOS set later, well then that would be a win-win. :)

Don't want clear and I have seen the ebay one, but it is a left and I already have an extra left. :) Believe me, I am well aware the difficulty of finding the early parts. Aim high and see what comes of it. I have seen NOS rear lenses, but of course that was like a few years ago before I had this truck. I do have a line on a NOS front signal assembly, but not quite ready to cough up the $$$ the seller wants yet.

Right turn signal assembly. I have a base, so if someone has the rubber, trim and lens, that would work also.

Steering wheel/ I would also consider a low windshield roadster steering wheel.

Rear taillight bucket/lens. This only has the red lights, no backup.

Rubber (?) plugs in the trans tunnel for the trans dipstick and trapazoidal hole behind the shifter.

One 1300 fender emblem. This is not the same as the 521 1300 emblem.

The castle nut that holds the Pitman arm to the steering gearbox. Got lost somewhere in the disassembly

The spring/screw/washer that holds the sunvisor arm to the mounting bracket. Same as above

Thanks, Mark
got both amber front lens.
steering wheel - ?
got both 1300 520 front emblems but will make sure their not the 521 1300 emblems.
castle nut, prob do have.
as for the rubber plug and the spring/screw/washer for the sun visor, I'll check

none of these parts are NOS.
