Will finish passenger side later. Get truck back on ground and I am sure I need to roll the fenders.I fuckin love though, looks way better in person. Cant wait for a full shot on the ground, stay tuned.

    The Red headed Hottie and i are driving something Datsun up. May throw some parts in the trunk, but last year at Canby selling was a waste of time. Totally cool with parts delivery on request. Just really wondering what the hell i will have available to drive, seems I'm back to selling everything cool I build. would be cool to see the normal crew of Datsun heads Keeper out

    Just picked up this ‘77 Deluxe KC. I’ll see what it needs to get it running and driving again, clean the crap out of her and then decide what to do with her.

    Is there 12 v at the relay on the jumper wire? W and WB ? If yes then there should be 12 v at the pump. The WB wire goes to the pump. Is there 12 v at the pump when the jumper in place? If no then the wire is broken or the 10 pin connector under the passenger seat isn't connecting. This 10 pin connector joins the external harness under the truck to the rear, to the cab harness.

    The automatic had 4.375 for sure. All 4 and 5 speeds were 4.11 unless the optional 4.375 was specified, or it had the Camper or Cab/Chassis option.

    Used jumper and pump not running. Pump runs when hooked up to a battery. All fuses good. New relay installed. Test shows 12 volts at pump connection. Pump has been stripped, filter cleaned, reassembled and bench tested before reinstall. All new fuel lines tank to carb.

    You have 12v at the pump? It should run. Do you hear it running? If you have power at the pump and it isn't running it can only be a bad pump or the ground is no good. If pump making sound but no gas, the tank is either empty, the line to the pump is plugged or the line to the carb is plugged..... this isn't that hard.

    Ok...thank so much guys. I think I got it figured out. The rears were pumping up so that’s what I assume was giving me a little bit of pedal, but come to find out the front adjusters were seized up and weren’t adjusted properly. The piston on the cylinder was pumping, but as was said...it wasn’t pushing the shoes out enough to build pressure. I removed the adjusters and got them cleaned and freed up so they now will move more freely. I reinstalled them and adjusted them so that the drum barely goes on then fine tuned them a little so that they barely scrub now. I bled them again and now have pedal pressure:) Took her for her maiden voyage and she stops pretty good. Problem is now as per the other thread...she died and wouldn’t restRt. Darn carb. Thanks again and now gotta get it running reliably. Andy agouge888

    Yes the truck autos are very strong/reliable if they are not over heated from towing and the fluid is changed every 30K. What year? The 3N71B was changed to torque converter lock up around '82

    About when I made the tail light repair thread, I put together some pairs of 521 tail lights, for my 521 trucks. Since then, I have let it be known that I will take any 521 tail light parts, no matter how damaged. I might be able to come up with some pieces you need. See this page. https://www.carpartsmanual.com/#ManualsMenu

    There would be three fusible links connected to the positive battery terminal. One Black and two Greens. One Green link goes directly to the ignition switch and in the ON position powers fuse 1 through 5 In the Accessory position powers fuse 6 and 7. These are all items that need to be controlled on and off by the ignition... fuel pump, rear defogger, ignition. The Black is connected directly to the alternator to take the charging output and then also to fuse 8 through 13 on the fuse box. Fuse 8 clock Fuse 9 not used Fuse 10 powers the heater fan through the switch. Fuse 11 powers the horn Fuse 12 is the brake lights and 4 way emergency lamps Fuse 13 powers the side markers, license, tail lights, parking lights, interior light, and dash lights. The other Green link powers fuse 14 and 15 the L & R headlights

    I started cutting some rocker rust out. Got distracted by all the squirrel nests and acorns. I'm kinda jumping around so seats are out and the floor work has begun. It will all be one color. Here's a before: I finally finished the IRS cover panel and seam sealed it. No pics of it finished but I'll show it once it's painted. With the interior bare, I noticed the shock mounts were starting to rust. These were hastily fabbed up the week before I moved here so I could dolly tow it without the rear end bouncing everywhere. I never really finished them, but they made it through the 2018 Challenge. With speed holes and paint, they are now finished. About 1/4 lb removed. Since I was jacking up the rear to get the shocks out, I saw an opportunity to replace the rear springs back to OEM height, hopefully raising the rear and leveling out the stance. Here's my super awesome trick for easy rear spring removal. Not sure it's any better, but maybe? Also I paid $18 to get some new numbers stamped on this thing I found at a flea market.

    The red light on the dash should come on when the ignition is turned on to show that the bulb is not burned out. It should shut off and stay off as long as the oil pressure is above about 8 PSI. By 'oil indicator' I can only assume you mean the oil pressure gauge? The 720 4x4 uses a single sensor for the gauge and the red low pressure light. Make sure it is plugged in securely. If this does not resolve the problem replace the sender, about $20 at NAPA or where ever. Use a spanner to remove and install the new one. NEVER twist the case by hand, trust me other than to start the threads. The smoking can only be worn rings or worn valve guides so nothing that can easily be done there. However, you can replace the valve guide seals which may be old and not controlling the oil getting down the valve stems. There is a very easy way to do this without removing the head and not using any tools. The seals are less than $2 each. Not a big loss if this does not fix the problem.

    She's new to me, my wife named her Jolene. Naturally as soon as I got her it's been rainy basically every day so she's just taunting me from the garage. I took her out for a quick trip to the DMV to transfer the title and had a bit of fun getting the rear end loose in second gear ?

    Primer time On to the inside of the hood and doors This hood is near perfect besides this rust WTF However instead of welding it up i decided to use panel bond, " said to be better then welding" Clear it real good and squeeze it in there. One door was blasted couple days ago the other blasted a year ago, hand print rust, my fav Metal prep to the rescue Sealed DP40LF epoxy primer sealer
