    Re: above comment. Looks like most have the 2 springs. The late 620 71B 5 speed and my '79 zx 5 speed have a single spring.... so I don't know what to say. 32852-24901 smaller inside spring 32856-24901 larger outer spring

    Funny you mention that spring... the one in that picture was a single but some when in the past I pulled one apart and there were two springs a smaller shorter one in the middle. May have been a 510 or B210 ??? Long time ago. I'll have a look through my reference books tonight. Two would have been firmer inward pressure out to the extreme left and right but easy in the 3/4 gate.

    I honestly had no intentions of selling it ever, but some situations forced my hand. Just have some debts I need to clear sooner rather than later. A good chunk of the funds will help get the next project farther down the road, so it's all good... And if I'm being honest, I've always liked building hot rods a lot more than owning them... šŸ˜„ The next one is a driver, so it's time to get back to that. I prefer projects you can drive while fixing them up rather than spend years working on something you never get to drive. I did tons and tons of mods to the 1200 without ever knowing if any of them would work well together until it was done. I think I got supremely lucky that the car drives as nice as it does. The next car will be a more old school approach (for me), mod, drive, mod, drive, mod, drive, then culminating in an insane engine swap...

    My 13 year old daughter is totally into Billy Eilish, so its always playing in the car, at home, etc. A year ago she was all about Sia and the 12 year old dancer on some of her vids. Since she was 11, Eilish has written or co-written her own music with her brother (3 years older), and he produces all her music. Seriously talented. Must have heard these songs a thousand times.

    Yeah it was like a Pogo stick. Leaves will have some dampening but shocks are a must for vehicle control more than comfort. Agree an extra leaf or more is the best for added weight and ride height but may be hard to live with when empty. My 521 rode like a Cadillac when there was about 600 lbs. in the back.

    This has been done with a 521 cab/box, it's likely going to be a huge project with the D21 drive train as there is not much room in the 520 engine compartment. I suppose you could extend the inner fenders, outer fenders and hood to make more room in the 520 engine compartment or put the radiator in the rear bed.

    June of the previous year is the usual change over for model years. June '79 was the first '80 model year 720.

    Charlie, I think this truck is about the same age as my long bed which is 85-86. I don't know what the run of years is for the 720 but based on the build number they have to be close.

    Well, I have looked and it must have been forgotten during the build cause there aren't any holes there either. Can you make a lightweight samurai sword from aluminium?

    Mike Is there another spring other that the one you showed in the pic ? The spring I removed with the cap seemed good.... not broken that I could tell.... but there was rust on the end of the spring. .... And the part on the end that accepts the shifter .... Kind of a bad pic, but I never removed...

    Not really sure , that's my next step. I personally think it was stuck out and not working correct for years... And I freed it up... and I can only assume it got stuck again.... there must be some corrosion in the hole.... By Mike's picture there is a hole that might be the indicator.... I have a small mirror, I'm gonna try to take a look and see where it is and if I can get it out with a magnet.... And to this part of your comment you lost me..... "In your image above, you can't see where that plug goes because it's way down above the bushing for the companion flange. Plus, the only sign of it is the small drilled thru-hole that intersects with the striking rod hole, so it would be more visible from the back." I definitely posted the wrong image, In my pic I thing that rod with the stuff attached has to be disassembled from the inside first... I dont know any of the names of things so it's hard for me to describe.... I get what's going just need to figure the fix without having to remove or disassemble the transmission .....

    It sounds like yours was never aligned if it doesn't return to center. That leads me to believe that it could have bound up and prevented the striking rod from rotating in that direction. If you remove the spring from the plug, is there any discernible feature on the inside of the plug that you can use to rotate it properly while pushing it all the way in? Then just drop the spring in and put the cap back on. In your image above, you can't see where that plug goes because it's way down above the bushing for the companion flange. Plus, the only sign of it is the small drilled thru-hole that intersects with the striking rod hole, so it would be more visible from the back.

    Oh I know what that spot is.... that's where that little item that prevents shifting from 5th directly to reverse....

    Is that even the right spot or is it located further up in the tail sectiont from this view....

    This is good to know because mine does not self center.... So that might be something... Sounds like I should have tried to free that piece up..... So would it be that area in the upper right.... I guess I did remove it.... Does the arm its suppose touch look correct? I mean like length and that end.... Could that little end cap get miss aligned?

    Attached to the striking rod is a longitudinal groove that this plug fits into. It aligns along the 3 neutral 4 gate. When you move it left in neutral into the 1-2 gate or right into the 5th-R gate the striking rod rotates and that plug is forced out of that groove but being spring loaded it wants back in. You will note that if you are in the neutral gate and pull the shifter to the left and let go of it, it automatically moves back into the 3-4 gate. Same if you move to the right between 5th and Rev.... if you let go it self centers in the 3-4 gate.

    Although I don't find Dead South as offensive, in my book Canada has a steep debt to pay humanity before anything Canadian can be considered "good stuff".

    Ok well I couldn't leave things alone.. I had a thought and sure enough I found the problem.... Whatever is under here..... Once I removed the plug and the spring I was able to get it into 5th and reverse no problem.... I think there is something in the hole, a plunger of some sort, but I never removed it.... i did remove the plug and spring during disassembly and cleaned inside, but never removed whatever was in there... when it was on the bench I saw it moving out when I messed with the shifter and I could push it in but i couldn't remove it.... I figured since it was moving in and out that it was good.... I didnt get to put the spring back in and test the shifter, once I knew what was wrong I was satisfied.... I'll finish things up another day... So what going on? Why did it get stuck? And it did work before, because I do remember now testing to see if the brake light switch worked....

    Well it was not the hole..... there is inches of clearance all around.... Looks like I have no choice but to pull the transmission out..... So disappointing...... I figure I'll have a look under the front cover and a couple other external things, but I'll bet I have to split the case again to really see what's up.... that's gonna suck if that's true.... oh well done for today....

    Try what Crashtd420 suggested, reverse the seal and see if it will work and let us know. If it is not reversible then why is a guy from Australia advertising right hand drive parts in a left hand drive country ebay, I do not believe he is stupid as he has been doing this for a while(making rubber parts).

    Any chance its inside out? Not even sure if that's possible just popped into my head..... On my 521 I actually just made one for the steering column out of some thick rubber..... the 521 has a trim piece that holds it in place..... Sometimes you have to get creative... I actually am using some small block Chevy valve cover breather grommets to run wires through a couple of my fire wall holes....

    Most of my time has been taken up by the GTI-R recently. However, that's starting to be a bit more reliable so I'm hoping to be on the goon a bit more. On the other hand, the enduro season is fast approaching and Swamp thing needs some help. We'll see. Finally! This was one of those annoying little details that's been nagging me for months. I've been looking for an upper radiator hose since I dropped the motor in. Everyone I tried wouldn't work just barely. I was just about ready to make it a two piece run when I found this one. Gates 21922. A little trim to fit. Picture makes it look closer to the head than it really is. Perfect fit, FWD SR water neck to stock location 510 radiator outlet. Dropped in the wide band. The old E-brake pass through was conveniently located and I should be able to snake the EGT wire through there as well. Speaking of wires. That's where I'm at. Starting to rough in the mega squirt harness. Some things end up in free space without the intake manifold but it sure gives better access.
