I'm not entirely clear on the matter. I know the J can't get the R160 yet because of something, but what is it again? (Thus I don't know what you mean by R160 boards. Do you mean the ones that say where the conductor stops? I saw one at Broadway Junction the other day.)

Wait a tick, The J currently isn't running any R160A's? Just the Z?

yes where the conductor stops but i heard the j line stations dont have the C/R boards for the R160 and i was wondering how long it takes them to install them.

All of the J line stations have R160s C/R boards on the entire line. There are 2-3 R160As running on the J and like 4-5 On the Z during rush hours. And before I get attacked and say that I'm a liar that the J is running R160s..They've been running for a while now. Heres a picture I took thats a real popular one and everyone loves as my proof:

The R 160's are only on the Z Line right now but every once in a while like the picture above they do come back to Parsons as a J Line if something goes out of place at Broad St.

Yep. But yeah, they do run the J almost everytime because something always happens or they want to turn the Zs back into Js and run them back to Parsons Archer.

It does not have to do with the C/R braods, it has to do with the station that need CCTV for the C/R. The Supt. is not pushing hard enought to get then installed. So for now the R160a1's are only used during the Rush Hours.
