  2. Those holes are for the factory SSS badges found on the 1970 models. This was mostly a trim upgrade, but I see you have the factory tach and map light (almost always found on those models), so that would support that as well. The badge is the rectangular SSS emblem that was also shared on the 411 SSS models (on the grille and tail light panel). This is the emblem that would be located there: Michael

  4. I’ve searched and searched and there’s just not much info on this. I have a 83 with auto hubs and I want to convert to manual type . Warner makes the correct spline (26) hubs , but not sure what is involved or is it even possible? I read in one post that it was a bolt on deal , that was a 84 model . Anyone confirm or have a link to the procedure? I know nothing about 4WD front hub assemblies .

  6. Hello Ratsuners... It's been quite some time since I've posted or been active here. Still been in the datsun game. Anyways. Am blessed with the honor of getting Dave's infamous 210. The drive train has been swapped out to 200sx. Including the engine/transmission. Rocking the 2.2 motor from the 200sx. The fuel injection stuff is gone. But it will be running a weber 32/36 for now. Later down the road some side drafts would be sweet. For now the goal is to go over the brakes, hoses, bearings. Drop the fuel tank and clean it. Replace any hoses wh

  7. I have read the posts regarding the timing on this site and have followed them. I replaced the timing chain having the engine at top dead center and lined up the chain markings as specified. I replaced the oil pump and the distributor. I have replaced the plug wires in proper firing order. I am one position off the guide in the book for intake number one. Do I have to play with the oil pump shaft to correct this or is there a way to change the distributor setting besides the standard twist. The truck will run at top dead center but there is no way to advance it. I have tried to change th

  10. I would hate to see it move further south, i know many from up north would not like that either. If steve doesnt want to continue it i hope someone does, steve has done a great job. But as he and others have seen it is NOT EASY running a show. We have struggled for years with blue lake because of lack of volunteers. Every year people say they will help out, and then dont ? We are getting tired as well, but we push on and this year will be the 35th year.

  11. OK, this is what you need to do, pull the exciter wire off the starter so it doesn't turn over when you turn the key to the start position, then have someone hold the key in the start position and you check to see if you have 12 volts of power to the positive side of the coil, if you don't then either the key assembly is wore out or someone bypassed/removed the 12 volt start wire to clean up the engine bay wiring, I have found that engines that start easy will start even with the bypass wire removed as when you let off the key the engine is still turning over and they start, and this is from t

  16. That's what worries me is, if I cut it then will it be strong enough to support the weight of the light or would it bend?

  20. I have an extra set of 320 rear bumpers that I would sell for $200 plus shipping. Have some rust on them but no dents, and you would still have to make the mounts. But they are the correct 320 ones. Even the 220s are different by being smaller.

  21. Mind boggling old survivor !! Subject of bumperettes comes up on the Datsun pickup forums from time to time. Those must be the bumperettes that Leonardo DaVinci drew up when he was a kid !! Yeah, I could nut-out driving that little feller around the neighborhood; probably wouldn't wanna get much farther afield though.

  22. Wayno, I experienced what you described with a '79 Econoline 150 "Trailer Special" van, 351, C-6, and a 9" with Traction Lock. Great for pulling a boat out of the water, but it wanted to swap ends on snow. But I attributed that to all the weight of a cast iron V-8 and dual batteries in the front, and not much load in back. My interest in limited slip for the 720 comes from years ago when I did some welding for a little logging crew out in the woods (different vehicle), and had to be towed up the "road" and into camp with a dozer. But I suppose that stuff is long behind me. So I'll settle fo

  23. Steve, now you know. These engines were built to be maintained and worked on by their owners. Do you have the factory service manual (FSM) for your year 720? I highly recommend it. They're cheap and usually on sale e-Bay for about 1/3 what you would pay a mechanic for an hours work.

  25. A cut down and modified bumper from a Sunbeam Alpine would look nearly identical to the OEMs. You can get originals for about $250 each (front and rear). MGB early chrome front bumper looks like it would do the trick as well, and they are much cheaper to buy new or used.

  26. They ARE bumpers, intended to save tail light and rear body damage even to the point of sacrificing themselves. So use something substantial to transmit force to the frame.

  34. got the mounts and the motor is in, mostly wired up on the engine side now to figure out the interior wiring, and plumbing for fuel and cooling, transmission and a few other odds and ends hopefully it'll be driving in a couple months.
