    Hi Angela.... All L16/18 and L20B 620 and the L20B in the 720 use the same oil pick up. Pan part number is unique to the 521. A 620 pan might fit or be made to fit but by part number it doesn't match.

    .............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!

    I talked to Gerson at KlassicFab JDM yesterday. They have scanned my 68-69 valence, so they have the file & making the tooling to stamp them out is next, but likely 3++ months out. He suggested watching the Datsun 510 forums & Facebook pages, where he typically announces availability of each product. He does NOT keep a list of potential buyers, as that system never worked for him with the air cooled VW people.............that's what he has been manufacturing for 20+++ years! KlassicFab has a VERY good reputation in the VW market for their patch panels & he is currently expanding into the classic Japanese market!

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

    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.

    RE: Upgraded to a 5 speed. For the effort, might as well! Why getting rid of the cross member, engine plate and the rad? You'll need them. I think the cross member is turned 180 for the standards to line up the mount bolts and the rad won't know the difference. At least keep as a spare.

    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.

    The good news is this is an automatic. Automatics tend to be survivors because it's hard to abuse them.

    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.

    I believe truck oil pans are different.

    I believe I have what you are looking for, but I would like to measure what I have before shipping to know it is what you need. A 620 oil pan will not fit, it hits the steering. I would want $50.00 plus shipping.

    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

    I have one, but a serious pain to ship! It might even need to ship truck freight, cuz of BULK once boxed up safely. TJ Denver CO

    I might have what you need..... Bought an unknown condition 63 series 4 spd transmission for the internal parts just incase mine needed something I couldn't find... well I recently upgraded to a 71b stumpy 5 spd from a 720 and I'm holding my good 4spd as a backup but I might be willing to sell the tailhousing off the parts transmission.... Would you be interested in just the tailhousing? What's your time frame like?

    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. Hope this link works............ https://westslope.craigslist.org/pts/d/palisade-1978-datsun/7000824725.html TJ Denver CO

    I adapted Energy rear bump stops to my 620. But I am at a loss to what they were meant for. I'll try to dig up the part number, but they were put on 15 years ago...Long before the 4-link conversion.

    I have an A87 without the ports to the manifold. Not selling. Just info.

    That's a '78, '79 or '80 exhaust manifold, so a W58 head with round exhaust ports.

    There are two types of Electronic Ignition distributors... I mean dizzys. One was used on all Datsuns in '78 and is called the remote igniter and has all the electronic parts in a large box under the dash.like this... It does have an obvious pick up coil under the rotor.... For '79 and '80 the remote igniter box was miniaturized (matchbox) and mounted on the side of the distributor

    Ok yes I am still interested in the 5sp trans and shipping to south Texas. Where is the trans originally from?

    Can you post a better picture of the transmission? Because what you have in the picture looks like a 4 speed.

    Are there any big issues with the engine and trans? I have an l16 and 4 spd and would like a little upgrade

    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.

    You don't specify the vehicle / location. Pity I didn't see this yesterday as I was visiting a tan interior on a 720. It's in it's last days so unlikely to be there when I have a chance to get out again.

    "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

    Are these for your 79 Datsun 720? I have a set of them aftermarket Bumperettes, they are not the best quality, but I would use them if I needed a set, you will have to make a set of brackets to mount them. Also shipping is unknown, so you might be able to have them shipped to you directly from overseas. I can take photos of them if your interested.

    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.

    What is wrong with your instrument cluster? The 521 cluster will fit, but it has green turn indicators.

    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

    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 :)

    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.
