    Dawa's 73 620 build

    ok here are some photos from workin on em here we have my lil compressor & air line, used for blowing the fuel line free of debris (thanks for the tip, Teddy) wait, where is the battery? here it is, in the bed. one project of mine is a better, and better looking battery box. here is what she looks like. within a couple months im gonna sand her back down to bare metal and experiment with different clear protective coatings. lastly, here is a sneak peek of my new longbed. i say mine but its actually only 2/5's mine, im making payments. maybe some of you recognize this truck and know the owner. ill give you a hint, he is a local pnw guy....

    ok, update! so Ive replaced all the fuel hoses, took it for a spin, she runs fine as ever, stops ok, too. I park her, go back the next day, and there is oil on the ground. big puddle. now, the bitch has always had a slight drip from the rear main seal, but this qas like at least a full quart of oil. I lay on the ground and watch the bitch to see where this leak is coming from.... and its the goddamn dreaded (at least to me) leak from the metal AROUND the drain plug. so I went out and bought some epoxy, and now im just waiting for all the oil to drain out, then clean the surface, and lay on some epoxy. the other portion of getting her on the road is getting the tabs renewed. this is not as easy as it sounds. I live in WA and she's registered in Cali. I have the original plates so im going to keep it that way. the problem is that I renewed the tabs and they sent it to my old san diego address. last week (7/25) I sent in the address request form. Yesterday (8/3) I call the dmv to get a status, and the lady says that forms received by mail like that typically take 4 weeks to process! so now I might have to wait another 3 weeks for this process, just to fill out the form for new tabs. furthermore, they will not change your address on the phone. I will post photos tomorrows guys, im sorry. and sorry for the ranty explanation

    Spuds 76 620 Project

    I love longbeds and I love this truck! you are putting in some quality work!
  5. hmm, 814 miles/13 hours... I wonder if my truck could make it? just gotta receive my cabs from cali, seal up an oil pan leak, pack oil, gas, and water in the bed, and I think I could make it. maybe stopping in Portland and or somewhere else in norcal.

    i am pleased to announce that after a hiatus, numerous deployments, and months spent at sea, and after the truck not running for years, that I finally got her fired up the other day, and that my build is back on. my immediate plans are to get it back to a reliable and street legal status, which includes but is not limited to: -changing out all the fuel hoses for new -renewing the registration -bleeding the brakes (if necessary) after that, I should be able to drive it around town (and beyond!) I have no super big plans at the moment, just need to get to driving her again. but I do plan on taking it all over the state and pnw to go to all the meets and meet Datsun buddies.

    how much fuel a 1600 engine consumes?

    ! my thoughts exactly. I think there might be a leak in your fuel system somewhere. start at fill hose, then tank, then lines to filter, lines/hoses from there to carb.

    how much fuel a 1600 engine consumes?

    might've already been mentioned but its all about how heavy your foot is, and what gears you drive in/what rpm you operate at. slow take offs from lights, riding around in higher gear (as long as youre not going up hills or don't NEED to accelerate) etc will help you increase your mileage per tank.
