  3. I've decided to go with a 32/36 Weber on my 86 720 w/Z24. I have the carb ready to go and I've been doing some research on the best way to install it. Seems that everyone I talk to about this swap has a suggestion for the best way to do this that isn't covered in the Redline instructions and I wanted to list them here for a consensus opinion: 1) Add bearings on throttle shaft to prevent worn and leaking shaft bore 2) Use the stock throttle lever from the Hitachi 3) Use the stock cable bracket but move it down one bolt hole. Anything else that I should do to m

  9. I just dont wanna be buying multiple sets.... I guess I can be careful and return them if needed.. I was originally thinking 100 or 125lb, but I don't think it translates like that.... Maybe I'll roll the dice on the 175lb ones and see what happens.... Thanks

  10. When I pull bodies off chassis, the ride height rises a lot and the spring stiffness increases. It's only natural to fell like everything is too stiff when there's no weight on it. Get the bed on before you make any rash decisions. What's that old adage about changing horses...?

  12. What @Charlie69 said, mine comes straight out and you could probably just USE the one off your L16 as it looks to be identical to the one that came on my L20B.

  15. Are the studs in good shape. Mine only had threads where the nut protected them from erosion. The nuts when tightened will swing the down pipe into position. If hitting the floor or the exhaust system is not allowing it then the pipe will need to be bent to allow it to close this gap. It's kind of janky but a slice 7/8th of the way through with a sawsall might allow the gap to close then weld up the cut. The width of a sawsall blade will probably be enough, don't make a pie cut.

  16. I dont really know which describes it... I'll be taking it get my kid from school after work tomorrow... I'll be paying more attention to how it feels, I was just happy to be driving it.... It really feel like I have too much spring without the weight of the bed back there.. When I put the spring in I barely have it snuggled up so that the spring isnt loose but it's not compressed at all.... it barely compresses 1" when I put the truck on the ground and I measured the length of the coilover at a little over 14" I wanted to be at 13"..... This is 10" with a 250lb spring

  24. Ok. Thanks! They look a bit different. Had to order 4 to get over the $10 min order limit. Another $22. So far....somewhere around $80.....I'm starting to think I could have bought all of the stock for less than that......but it would save me a ton of time. lol

  25. Likely yes. Next easy step is to pull the motor and before getting a new one, put 12v directly to the motor and see if it runs. If it won't run hooked straight to 12v then its dead and go from there.

  29. It was a handy book in 1975. Most of it is very outdated now. Also, a lot of it was building to a specific racing class, which did not allow you certain modifications. These days it's really only good for someone trying to build a 2.5 Trans Am or B/Sedan replica.

  31. Just an update on 320 hubcaps... Jake Makes went and saw the first sample and they look really good and fit tight on the stock wheel nubs. They're stainless and a polished set will run about $350.

  32. Painted some more stuff today, I think other than the fuel tank and the stuff I need to buy still (hardlines etc) that should be pretty much everything ready to go on once the underside of the shell is painted. I know I'm missing a couple of the brake line clamps but I'll make those when I assemble everything so I don't make ones for the wrong spots.

  35. We got 210 heads for the L16 A87 for the L18s and early L20B U67 from '75 to '77 and W58 from '78 through '80. There were closed chamber 210, A87 and W58 heads but I think very unlikely they came on any of our Datsuns but on later import engines. In some cases another open chamber head might have been substituted for a U67 or A87 because this would not affect the compression. I have a set of L18SSS SUs and their intake. These only came on the SSS engines and this is probably how it got to Canada and eventually into my hands. These were only on the 219 head on

  38. I worked evenings at a gun shop as a gunsmith long ago. We had three of these come in for loose breaks. After tightening them up I’d test fire them... weird guns. Probably the only gun you can get on the fictional continent of Australia.

  40. Well Boys and Girls...here is a cool story... Mark reached out to me above (thanks Ratsun!) and we ended up having a great conversation about my (his) truck. Mark's mom was the original purchaser and it got handed down to Mark and it was in his Family for over 35 years! He sent me a pic of the original title, which was cool. He also sent me a pic of the odometer when he sold it....86,000 miles. When I swapped the gauges out the odo with the Speedhut gauges, it was at 96,xxx and ive put about 1,300 miles on it since - so I truly have an under 100k miles truck.

  41. Back in the day Gary Narusawa swapped S chassis subframes into a 620 for part of a build for Project Car Magazine. He had a thread on here at the time and even put a Ratsun shift knob in the truck that someone here sent him. That was a very cool build. I wish the magazine had survived long enough to show him finishing it.

  47. If they didn't call it penetrating oil or rust remover my expectations wouldn't be so high and I wouldn't have such a low opinion about how effective they were. I always use heat and WD-40. That compo seems to work. Heat and cold shock and repeat.
