    Hillary still thinks she won 2016. She's a whiny cunt and should just go away. If trump was going to go after her he's had 4 years to do so.... not that there is a statute of limitations on the Clintons evilness. So fuck her and her me me me podcast. Fucking kill yourself.

    The people who are causing civil unrest are not trump supporters. Likewise after the election it won’t be trump supporters, even if Biden wins. In every case where you see this happening, all are Democrat strongholds. It’s not even close. people are buying guns and ammo because they know the police cannot help. People are fleeing the city and arming themselves. You know for self defense. These places are actually cutting police funding... so someone has to keep their families safe. merica is pretty crazy right now, and it’s because of division driven by the media. That’s not an accident.

    Be glad Trump's bad performance saved Joe from hanging himself a few times. Trump you should have let that loopy bastard ramble on and he would have stepped into some serious shit all by himself! Wallace is a Closet Lefty and last night proved it. He didn't press Biden too hard, gave him pass and didn't interrupt him as badly as he did Trump. So yeah, your boy Creepy Joe got away with it pretty good. Because the bastard was useless.

    I've lived here a long time, and it's worse than ever before. It's not an accident. 20 years ago, it was liberal but everyone would complain about Californians moving up here. 10-15 years ago, homelessness started to be more prevalent and cities pandering to them. The last 5 years, homeless camps on every small chunk of publicly owned property, really since the occupy movement. The 2020-21 we are nearing San Fran human shit of every street corner levels of social/liberalism. I drove through portland last weekend, heading south from Washington, it looks like a gang of homeless people took over the city and spray painted graffiti everywhere. I mean as soon as you cross the bridge into Portland it's a fucking dump. Tents everywhere, paint on everything. And that shit oozes down into Salem, and Eugene. Roseburg, Grants Pass, Medford, still holding strong. Keep banning those single use plastics though, gotta keep the priorities straight. Funny story about single use plastic bag ban of 2019... the stores just made the plastic bags a little thicker and called them multi-use bags, and thus exempted from the ban. A plastic straw is now an assault straw and thus BANNED(in some cities). But he plastic cup and lid, no problem at all.

    In better news----A while back, on this thread or some other, property tax was a subtopic of discussion. At that time, I mentioned my neighbor next door sold his house for 1.2 million. He listed it at 899,999 a first day bidding war topped at 1.2, or so I thought. Turns out a developer, who wanted to tear it all down and build "multi-unit" buildings on the lot, bid 1.3. My neighbor's house sits on, what would be considered 3 city lots, and someone with political pull, could easily obtain a zoning exception for townhouses, or the like. I was bummed, since everyone started building apartments on their garages, traffic in my neighborhood has increased, foot traffic, bike traffic, car traffic. Two small 6 unit apartment building sit less than a block away and a big apartment building (more than 10 units), with first floor retail is planned about 4 city blocks south. Zoning for ADU's (Additional Dwelling Unit, fancy talk for "apartments above garage", or big old house, chopped up into apartments), was recently, passed, that removed or modified population density requirements, but I digress. My neighbor, who in the last 20 years has been an excellent neighbor, but we never shared a meal, TURNED DOWN the bid for an additional $100,000, because he thought another multi-unit building would hurt the neighborhood. It would have hurt the neighborhood,but I know all surrounding neighbors and none of us would have faulted him for accepting the $100,000 higher bid. I have never seen $100,000, in person or on my bank statement. Covid, false facts, misinformation or bias information, accepted as truth, the great divide in America, and yet there are still people that humble me, with the depth of their compassion.

    So here's a thought. It seems so many people want a smooth talking presidential person who doesn't do shit for the people. A man who definitely solidifies government expansion, government intrusion, and is capable of making you feel good while being dry fucked for future generations to come. VS A crass unrefined speaker who has done actual substantial productive work with his cabinet. Who has a second term agenda largely plagiarizer by a Buffoon who cant recall the last time he sniffed a child. Peoples inability to look into what politicians do vs the nice things they say to be "Popular" really piss me off. Trump so far on a lot of things has been the most competent leader for the job since Reagan, but since the TV narrative or his language make you cringe it seems to block an emotional brained person or a lot of vapid people in general from actually forming a substantive opinion based on knowing the policies or work that is being done. "I don't like him!" has the biggest excuse for people's lazy inconvenienced nature to actually participate in anything effecting them through state of federal representation. They just buy whole sale lies shit out by the corporate press or some political action group because its "too much work" to do. This was a major issue during the last presidential term too. Pay attention to the fucking things that are important and not the beauty pageant popularity contest!!! So many people are as deep as a dried up mud puddle.

    Its worn out. I have already expressed myself several times in other threads. Like I said though. I can cherry pick too, but really these people need to be left alone. I am pretty sure they are drowning in their own guilt of irresponsibility and I absolutely detest vulture media for blasting their tragedy out for all the nutters to feel some stupidly false moral authority. Secure your weapons, and be extra vigilant within a house containing littles.

    Feel’s good to be back. First joined Ratsun in 2009 as an automotive tech school student with a really solid 73’ 620 that served as my very first project. I loved that truck, and got to enjoy it for about a year before I unfortunately crashed it and had to sell it off for parts. It was painful, I was young and naïve and didn’t truly appreciate what I had. Even though it didn’t work out with my first attempt, it solidified my love of old Japanese cars(especially Datsuns), and I’m thankful for that. After school I moved to Chicago for a couple years, then eventually back to Saint Louis where I landed at my current job. Girlfriends, a lack of a garage, and several life changes didn’t really encourage a project car throughout that time so most of my money went into my daily driver GTI which I autocrossed occasionally. Fast forward to 2020. I bought a house about a year ago with a tiny, yet usable garage. With COVID and the general shittiness of this year, I decided this was the best time to get a project and what else would be better than another Datsun?😁 This time around, remembering my 6’ 3” frame crammed into my old 73’ I decided I should probably look for a KingCab. I initially found a 77’ in Illinois at a classic car lot. It looked decent, but had a tired interior and a 4 speed, and they were asking a bit too much for it. I slept on it for a week, called before going to look at it, but it had sold. Finding another one in the Midwest was going to be tough, as decent ones just don’t show up too often in my area. Not getting discouraged, I remembered that most of the solid Datsuns were all up in the PNW so started looking more there. Luckily, I have friends in Bend, OR and it all fell into place. I found another 77’ KingCab on the Eugene, OR craigslist. It was the right price, had a bunch of choice upgrades, and wasn’t too far from my friends. I got in contact with the owner, agreed on a deal and started the process of buying the truck. It just so happened that my friends in Bend had to make a trip to Eugene to drop off a car anyway (stars aligned lol). They drove out, bought the truck, then drove it 3 hours back to Bend unscathed! 😄Awesome people, and the truck already had a cool story behind it. Shipping it back to Saint Louis wasn’t cheap or without some confusion, but was the best choice given my situation. Finally, after nearly a month since I found the listing, a Brick Orange 1977 Datsun 620 KingCab was sitting in my driveway. Here she is the day I brought her home! Banged up a bit, but absolutely solid body, no structural rust at all! Floors, rockers, bed, and frame have surface rust only. L20B, recently refreshed W58 head, Weber 32/36 DGEV, FS5W71B 5 speed, new carpets, Mini Cooper bucket seats, 4” lowering blocks/indexed torsion bars, 18” 6-spoke Titan wheels, KYB shocks, new back and side glass, and a bunch of other new parts. Oh yeah and the dash isn’t cracked to hell! 👍 The immediate plan is to refresh a few things, do some general maintenance, and just generally modernize the truck a bit. Down the road I’ll address all the bodywork and paint, and eventually convert to coils and either KA/SR or K-series Honda. Progress will be slow as I’m trying to budget, but I’m stoked to share my new project with you guys and hopefully learn a bunch moving forward. Onto the pictures!

    Update 1 Since the truck was delivered, I've addressed a few things. I replaced a few bulbs and got it registered and insured. The fuel filter was pretty nasty, so I replaced it also noticing a few particulates in the new one after running the truck. I'll have to drop the tank and get it cleaned out and re-sealed in the future, but it’s fine for now. I did an oil change with 10w-40 Mobile 1 and a Napa Gold 1515 after hearing that recommended here. I won’t knock people for running the Titan wheels on their trucks, but they just aren’t my thing. Not only that, but they made the ride pretty harsh and I wanted more sidewall and a period-correct look. I settled for a set of U.S Wheel Modular 94. Bought them from Summit for around $400. Unfortunately one of them came with a hole in the barrel as if the machine weld was just missed in that spot. Got another one shipped to me for free, so I’ll keep the defective wheel and have it welded later and keep it as a spare.👍 Tire choices were limited, but settled on a set of 205/55/R15 Kumho Ecsta 4x II all-seasons. Kumhos have worked well for me in the past. The fitment is almost perfect with just a rub here and there over bumps while turning. Not too shabby. I’ll keep this set on the truck for a while until I can get some real JDM 3-piece wheels in the future.

    There seems to be a misconception with that Corsair and the story that floats around regarding Frazer's encounter, which occurred on 22 June 1945. In the photo above, that FG-1D (88441) of VMF-113, piloted by 1Lt. Hunchar, was involved in a ground incident on 4 July 1945 with an FG-1D (88339) also of VMF-113, piloted by 2Lt. Harke. The WO entry provides these details: "On 4 July Hunchar in 88441 was rolling out after landing when he was hit from behind by 2Lt Harke in 88399 who had landed too fast and close. Both aircraft were damaged beyond repair." Also note the drop tanks still in place, which are usually dropped in combat. https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/battle-damaged-aircraft-of-ww2.15431/page-37

    The L20b was a good enough upgrade for me for over a decade, but I was dealing with other upgrades like disc brakes, power steering, and then power brakes and I was working full time on my own business, but eventually I came back to the power of the engine because the one I had was using oil, a lot of oil at the end, it got expensive burning 3 quarts of oil a tank of gas, so I built the LZ23, keep in mind back then that I tow a trailer and hauled a lot of weight daily, I was wearing out rearends, breaking transmissions, it was not uncommon for me to be rolling around with a rolling weight of over 7000lbs, so the LZ23 was a welcome upgrade, I have been fine with the LZ23 for 9 years now and I have my other trucks to drive when I am not working which are fun to drive themselves. What your looking at in the photo below is 8000lbs of rolling weight, truck weighs 3400lbs, that is 2000lbs on the flatbed, there is 2000lbs in the trailer, and the trailer weighs at least 600lbs likely more, this was just a normal day for me back then, and it was before power brakes, but I believe the trailer had electric brakes at that time.

    I happened across this thread while looking for something else. lol I haven't read it closely, but I thought I'd add a couple of things. This will probably be more for the newer readers than those that have been here awhile. I noticed above a comment about my brake kits fitting "some" 14" rims. They actually fit all 14" rims, including the stock steel factory rim....which is the hardest to fit behind. They do push the wheel mounting surface out 5/8" on each side do to the use of the disc brake hubs. The kit can work with Toyota 5 lug hubs, too(little known info I don't typically promote, lol). As mentioned above, king pins are perfectly fine, but they're a pain to rebuild compared to just replacing a ball joint. If you're looking to daily drive a truck, the conversion might be worth it, but I daily'd my wife's 521 for a couple of years on the freeway 3-4 days a week at 70-80mph, without issue. A lot of the slop can come from the idler arm. They're available still...as are the tie rod ends. The stock rubber uca to dogbone bushings are easy to get and cheap, but they wear out quickly. I make urethane options for them since the rubber ones were toast after 6mo on my wife's truck. The inner LCA bushings are rubber. They're available, but royal PITA to replace. I have a vid or two about these. I've never actually found bad ones on the trucks I've had, so check them closely before starting down that path. The bigger issue is getting the sun bolt out that connects the LCA to that bushing. They're hard to come buy. I'm working on getting some out of Mexico. I'm going to see about making a removal tool that will help get them out. The bolts are fairly soft, so the threads get destroyed when they're hammered on. Wayno double nuts them and has had pretty good success getting them out that way. The HB sun bolts are available, but they're too long and about $30ea. Seriously, if you're not converting to ball joint, check them very closely before you tear into them. The other pivot points are called bushings, typically, but they're steel on steel pins and cups. I think the inner UCA ones can be found still. You'll get the cross shaft arm and the cups. The lower dogbone to LCA connection is called a fulcrum pin and is harder to find. I think the pins are the same between the different years, but the cups change. I'm pretty sure I did a video showing the differences. This is another PITA to deal with, so, as with the inner LCA bushing, check these closely to make sure they actually need replaced. The kingpin kits are getting a lot harder to find and the price is going way up!!! I keep seeing a guy in Cyprus that wants over $200 for kits. I'm currently in talks with a couple of companies in china that can supply them. I've gotten samples in and have a preliminary price. I have to order 50 sets and the shipping more than doubles the cost. I may see about posting a group buy. At the price I've received, I know I can sell them at around $110 shipping in the US. I hesitate to go much below that until they arrive since the shipping is an estimate. One of the samples is nearly a perfect match. The only issue is that the hole in each bushing is in the middle of the length and needs to be offset a bit to line up with the grease fitting on the spindle. The bushings aren't very hard, so a file, dremel, or die grinder can easily elongate the hole to where it's needed. There's a small chance that I may modify them before reselling them, but that will mean the price will definitely stay at the $100 mark...possibly a hair more. As mentioned, I do have "A LOT" of videos on rebuilding kingpins on my YT channel. It's certainly possible to do them yourself, but I'd highly recommend finding a shop with a Sunnen hone to have the bushings fitted to the pins. It runs me about $60/set to have them done here. I'm currently working on a group buy on facebook for the ball joint conversion arms that will maintain stock track width. Getting ball joints on the trucks is pretty easy with a custom uca, but it will push the wheels out 1.25" per side if the LCA's are not shortened. I don't want to turn this into a sales pitch, so msg me and I can answer questions and send a couple of links. If I get many pm's about them, I may put a thread up here. Wow....this has gotten way longer than I had planned. LOL I don't follow much on this forum any more, but I'm still here. You can pm me here. My youtube channel bluehandsvideo has lots of datsun stuff and how-to's from previous years. The last few years are more machining. You can also find more info on my site www.bluehandsfab.com. The factory manuals are on there if you want to download a copy. I'll get any replies to this, so if you have questions, you can ask them here. I'm guessing the thread is old enough that Frank won't mind much. :)

    President Trump dominated last night’s slugfest with Joe Biden. The President kept Joe Biden on defense and made Biden look particularly weak when he repeatedly challenged the former Vice-President to name even one police or law enforcement group that was supporting him and Biden could only mumble and shake his head. Biden looked even weaker when he refused to answer whether he would support packing the Supreme Court or explain why he hasn’t asked the Democrat Mayor of Portland and the Governor of Oregon to put down the violent demonstrations and rioting. I’m sure the Democrats and their media allies will accuse the President of being too forceful and aggressive and ignore that it was Biden who lost his composure telling the President to “shut up” and calling him a “clown.” It was a tough, hard hitting debate but these are tough times and America needs a tough, strong, no nonsense leader. People say they want straight talk from their leaders and politicians. That’s what they got last night from President Trump!!
