    If you had a door wing window section would that help at all, I cut a couple door frames apart for a 320 kingcab project of mine as I needed the tracks for the rear window, I never throw stuff away in case I need it in the future.

    Wow I just checked and its been over a year since I updated this build. I finally moved into a house with a garage so that's where its been on jackstands for about 5 months. I've made a lot of headway with the engine bay after I pulled the engine out which I'm currently rebuilding (final assembly later this week!) I stripped out the old paint and fixed some minor rust spots and gave it a new coat of paint (rattle can) with a 2 part clear. I also cleaned off all of the dirt and grime from sitting in a field for 10 years and painted the subframe, sway bar, and stabilizer bars. Starting to redo the clutch and brake lines. New hardware all around. Doing a bit of a wire tuck. Also installed the Silvermine Motors big brake kit! Replaced the bushings for the sway bar and stabilizer bars. Also got new outer tie rods and inner tie rod ends. Hopefully will update this more frequently. Not bad for spray paint and HOURS of wire wheel work.

    Yes it is! Belongs to a good friend. He has gone 195mpg on the salt. Wants to run 200mph for a personal goal. It has dipped into the 8s at over 150mph in the 1/4. It is a bad ass little car!!!

    ol' 320: Precisely. Why sit around and bicker when we could be contributing towards making things happen? It's not productive, it's not healthy, and frankly it's time that's not very well spent. Pre-order form: https://forms.gle/PV5tdZp5K8r23SeG6 The deadline for pre-orders closes on October 15. We'll be collecting a 30% deposit. Once the seals are finished, we'll request the remaining 70% plus shipping. And in case anyone didn't see my last post, please drop by to see our booth this November at AAPEX 2019. Las Vegas, Sands Expo Convention Center. https://s23.a2zinc.net/clients/glasgow/aapex2019/Public/eBooth.aspx?IndexInList=17&FromPage=Exhibitors.aspx&ParentBoothID=&ListByBooth=true&BoothID=226691

    Eddie wanted desperately to have sex with a hot girl at work, but she had a boyfriend. One day Eddie got so desperate that he went to her and said, “I’ll give you $100 if you’ll let me have sex with you.” The girl looked at him shocked and said “Hell no!” He said” I’ll be real quick – I’ll throw the money on the floor, you bend over to get it, and I’ll be finished by the time you’ve picked it up!” She thought for a moment and told him she would have to talk to her boyfriend. So she called him and explained the situation. Her boyfriend says, “Ask him for $200,pick up the money really really fast, and he won’t even be able to get his pants down!” She agreed and accepted the proposal. 30 minutes go by and the boyfriend is still waiting for his girlfriend’s call. Finally, after 45 minutes, the boyfriend calls and asks, “What the **** happened?” Still breathing hard she managed to reply, “That bastard had all quarters!!!!”

    I agree but I know it cost me $30 or 35 to send the samples. Something to consider.

    It's in the nature of the 32/36 progressive carburetor. If driven too aggressively you can open the secondary way before the engine can use it. The 32/36 would be an almost perfect carburetor if it had a vacuum operated secondary that openes only when the engine was revved up and in need of the secondary. Until then it's a perfect carburetor for those who like to be more involved in the driving process. In some ways it takes a learned skill to drive one at optimum.

    Experimental Engineering makes motor mounts (to use with stock 510 mounts), a transmission crossmember and oil pan. That will get the motor in the car. They also have misc good stuff - tension control rod kit, idler arm kit, and headers. They make really nice stuff. You can PM me and I will try to answer any questions since EE is a one person shop and it is very difficult to get a hold of them. I am only doing this to help them out since he has been a friend for almost 20 years (and I am using his parts on my VG33 swap into my '72 510 wagon).

    I guess there are no stop lights, stop signs, drive-throughs, busy parking lots, or a million other instances one would still be considered "driving" while idling.

    I've thought of a 1978 Cadillac Eldorado 425 CID & transmission stuffed in the bed of a 1978 620. Just happen to have both in the front yard. Never can tell after a few barley pop's. Could get interesting. Chopper Jim

    After FINALLY deciding on where to go with the 'first stage' of this build; it's time for it's own topic, so let's bring you guys up to speed. About 4 months ago there was a craigslist post for a "Free Datsun Drift Truck". I was the lucky sob that was first to respond and ended up taking a road trip with my Bro to pick it up. Since then I've collected the random body parts missing from the truck, a couple sets of rims (haven't decided which way to go, and I'm a bit of a wheel whore) and recently decided to go with a Honda K20/K24 + Miata Transmission swap (eventual 6speed) for the engine. Rim choice 1 - 15x8 "Blades": Rims choice 2 - 15x10 Mags: Extra pics - Classic plates belonging to my Grandfather last regged in 95, now back on the street - Next to my Green 521 New bed picked up and chopped off the old bed on the frame - thanks to some eagle eyed Ratsuners it looks like I'm working with a 620 frame random bed parts and tailgate acquired: Got a 5 speed tranny last week which will be great for mock-up at the very least: And my Bro swooped up a KMiata adapter plate which will allow us to join up a K20/K20 (still undecided - opinions?) up and beat the shit out of it.

    The bar is cheap. It's the time to make all the pucks that is consuming.

    ZCCW started this show a few years ago on the same day as Bluelake but they act like they are completely unaware that other Datsun events happen in the NW. I may join this club and see if I can convince them to move the show one week earlier each year. I'd love to attend both shows each summer.

    OK I guess the last post with pictures was not showing. This looks normal. It's torn from removal. You can degrease the front and rear cases in a cleaning tank. I would just uses a citrus de greaser and power wash at home. I got mine for under $4 maybe it was mislabeled? Goddamn it cleans hands really well. Spray it on wait 10 min power wash. The chewed up leading edges on that is the reverse gear. It might whine while reversing but who cares?

    And on a 620 it should be easier because I believe they share/are closely compatible with the 720s.

    I just looked at the 1963 Datsun L320 relay and it's not likely stock, if you look at the second photo I posted of it below you can see the right side mount hole is not used nor is there a mount hole in the inner fender well for it. I don't look at stuff like that unless it quits working.

    I have never had a E1, J13, or J15 coolant sender/sensor out of the block, I don't even know what the sender/sensor looks like or how it is held in, I just know where it is and that so far all of mine work fine. My E1 and J15 appear to have the same sized collar if that is what it is(5/8"), otherwise that is the only thing similar, my E1 has a bolt holding the wire on, my J15 has a wire coming out of it that has a plug a foot away. I would not take anything off, leave the wires the way they are and put electrical tape on them so they cannot short out on anything and cause a fire, they had to go to something within the reach of the wires the way they are so you have your search area.
