  2. Wow, that's a good deal, I'm sure someone is going to snap that up.

  3. I think that's for the 720 though very possible it will work in the 620. The 620 console has much more rounded corners and doesn't fit a radio, that's in the dash. The 720 did have a cassette option and it would fit the console. If not used there would be a delete plate over it. Tan interior was only used in the '79 620. All years of 720 had a tan interior option

  5. Standard ANCO wipers and replacement arms will fit. The wiper blades will be slightly longer than original JDM if that"s what your vehicle had but a little finagling and cussing will get proper timing and stop / start positioning.

  6. The W04 head intake port looks about the same as the Z24 head but the exhaust is rounder and looks smaller on the W04. Would there be any type of change or would it be best to stay with the same type heads?

  7. "Never seen a pre-1968 imported car with factory installed mirrors" to quote you, My 1967 RL411 came with DATSUN factory marked and installed mirror on the Left [driver's] door. The silvering eventually speckeled so I replaced it with a Roberk unit that even fit the factory steel plate mount for the door mirror. Roberk units have an adjust lock screw on the front of the mirror mount, factory adjust lock screw is inside the base of the mount requiring removal of the mirror in order to lock any position adjustment.

  8. It's just not that critical unless the choke jams. It's rather a loose fit anyway. A worn throttle shaft would be different.

  9. i have completely rebuilt the hinges too, usually if a spring falls out it is because the holes and pins in that arms are so worn out they will end up jamming and binding up and require welding fabrication to repair, and yes the springs are hard to put it there is a special tool, or collapse in vice and hold with bailing wire

  10. Careful I believe it would actually be a bspt thread not npt.... You can use a correct size npt tap and rethread the hole, then use the new fitting as a gauge on how deep to tap to end up in the appropriate orientation.... I redid all my bspt hole to npt it is acceptable to do, I verified for myself mathematically, you cut into all new metal so no issue of leaking....

  13. No worries, no 720 4x4 had an automatic option. Through '82 model year the 5 speed was an option and '83 and on only the 5 speed was available. Build dates of December '82 and on had self adjusting rear brake drums and the '83 and on model years had a much upgraded front disc brakes and a larger 2.4 liter engine. There was an ST (sport truck) that was loaded with option packages like sun roof electric windows, tach/clock, console gauges, alloy rims and larger tires and more. Lots to chose from and get in a 720.

  14. You need to post what year the 520 is, they had different grills over the 520 run, some were single headlight trucks(1 on each side), some had dual headlights(2 on each side), also early 520s had a hole in the bumper for the crank start while the later ones didn't have that hole/option. A MG Midget distributor will fit the J13 engine, and some of them came with electronic ignition, but you will likely need the MG clamp also, I cannot remember if the J13 clamp can be used, so get the MG clamp if you go that route. The clamp on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Distributor-Clamp-for-MGA-MGB-MG-Midget-with-25D-or-45D-Lucas-Distributor/233710568987?hash=item366a3c461b:g:RfoAAOSwaS9fW6~V Just search "MG Midget electronic ignition", some aftermarket distributors are under a $100.00, they had points distributors also but I would go with electronic ignition myself, I believe MGB distributors are the same, but I just search the MG Midget myself, there is not as large of a selection as there used to be, I used to see used ones for cheap.

  15. .............and the pic angle makes them look like they are a different length.............these two pans ARE the same length, will bolt bolt up to any 4cyl L-series, for those interested in buying! Great price, good luck with the sale!

  16. N.L.S.V. Nissan load sensing valve. Allows more brake pressure to the rears as weight is added to the box.

  17. The loss of the temp and gas gauges is the common to both voltage regulator... Replace or maybe you can pry apart and sand the contacts inside. The old original 4 speed speedometer will reach the other side and farther back if you pull all the cable up into the engine compartment, then feed it down behind the engine and diagonally over the top of the 5 speed. It'll fit. Owned a 5 year old '71 back in the day. Had it 8 years.

  22. The exhaust is a square port from a '75-'77 L20B. Carbs are all different, one might be from an '80 720 all appear to be from an L20B. You might have an earlier L20B in your 720.

  27. Absolutely. Why would Nissan build something that can't be driven on the highway? You're under the impression that an automatic is somehow inferior to a standard. They can be slightly slower on acceleration but will do the same top speed. Automatics have desirable traits too. They don't need left foot right arm coordination to drive, handy if handicapped. Women (no offense) tend to not like the bother of shifting gears and using a clutch. Very handy for in town stop and go.

  28. Datsun odometers only go to 99,999 and then 'roll over' to 00,000 again. It should have an L18, '74 was the only year that had this engine, but after 46 years it could very easily have been swapped.

  31. Have you looked into shipping cost? I have shipped two 240Z front clips on pallets, via truck freight, to a carrier in Florida, they handled shipping to South America. Happy to find that same carrier info & pass along. I am trying to buy a 521 parts truck right now, that does have a bed on it, just not sure of condition until I have it here. I saw the parts truck 2 years ago, am pursuing to buy it now, because I just bought a 1972 521 with a commercial flat bed on it........I will NOT be converting it back to a standard bed, as I love the flat bed!! PM me if interested! I will NOT hold you committed to this bed, because, again, I will be buying the parts truck if I can get it! I likely won't know for a number of weeks, as it is likely buried in snow, but the Spring melt is coming! TJ Denver Colorado

  36. Buy out West & ship home or road trip............midwest cars are ROTTED! I moved from Michigan to Colorado 7 years ago........i'm like a kid in a candy store out here, cuz LOTS of good cars! There are 2-1/2 620's out here on "western slope" Colorado craigslist, ONE seller. I have NOT seen them, but they look very dry, which is how many Colorado cars are............didn't start using salt in winter until about 10 years ago.

  40. You can use the auto crossmember as Datzenmike says with some adapter plates. Pretty easy job actually. You just need 2 steel plates about 2 by 4 and 1/4 inch thick or so. I welded one bolt onto mine years ago to make it easier but it isn't really necessary. These will let you take up the difference in height and let you put bolts back into the threaded holes already on the body. From memory you might need to drill one extra hole in the crossmember to get it to line up with the hole on the body but I'm not positive on that.

  42. "Sorry, L20b/A87 head, square port....I thought all the square port 4 cylinder L series heads used the same exhaust manifolds. " For L20B the W58 heads are round port and the exhaust is separate from the intake. For L20B U67 square port, the exhaust and intake are bolted together. For L20B A87 square port you could use the above co-joined manifolds or the earlier L16/18 4 into 2 exhaust. A different manifold altogether. I

  43. Car and truck seats have come a long way in 40 years and the 620 seats weren't comfortable anyway. It would be no great loss to exchange them for much newer bucket seats with proper bolstering, side support and an adjustable lumbar support.

  44. Have you tried Nissan? Riley at Lynchburg Nissan will all at least look it up & order if still available! Rock Auto also lists some under "parking brake cable". Is it just not available any more? TJ

  45. Not bad, but $250 ?? I could see under $175 And I had one of those also, damn runners are fairly small, then open up right before the head. Don't think anyone ever made a true downdraft L4 manifold. All that I've seen have little runners so any dummy can bolt them onto a stock engine, and feel good. Someone sells just the head flanges on eBay that would be fun to play with. A little thick wall aluminum tube, a little aluminum plate, and a little welding, and who knows what you could come up with. How about a tunnel ram :)

  46. The L16 powered 521 and the 510 4 speed extension housings should also work for this. 'Probably' the early 620 and the 710, but not the 610 (too long) would also work. They use the same shifter, internal bushing and the seal.
