    Disc brake upgrade. Then KA24DE / 5-speed install ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. First page edited to reflect the most recent event. The Shop uses Facebook primarily for event announcements. https://www.facebook.com/events/924080385012718/?acontext={"ref"%3A"52"%2C"action_history"%3A"[{\"surface\"%3A\"share_link\"%2C\"mechanism\"%3A\"share_link\"%2C\"extra_data\"%3A{\"invite_link_id\"%3A265907388358786}}]"} Japanese Cars n Coffee Sat April 3rd, 2021 (tomorrow!) 2233 6th Ave South Seattle 10:00am - noonish
  4. 1980 Datsun 280ZX in Pick n Pull - Arlington, Washington Still has body, t-tops, blue seats, fenders and doors (bondo, rattle can paint) No engine, trans, diff, front struts, rear brakes .... I didn't pull that stuff, it was already gone. I think the drivetrain might have been taken before it entered the yard. The engine compartment is stripped pretty bare. No brake booster or master cylinder.
  5. The 240SX has a much taller 5th so I would suggest keeping your diff low like it is. Most people are running tire sizes slightly smaller than stock for the 620 truck.
  6. What happened with your transmission adventure? Is the Frontier transmission usable? Where does the shifter location fall between the two?
  7. If the main issue is low fuel pressure, one way to test is with starting fluid. Pull the large inlet hose off the throttle body, open the throttle all the way with one hand and spray some starting fluid into the intake manifold. Then connect the intake hose to the throttle body again. Crank it over and if spark plugs are good and the spark is strong, you'll get it to fire several times. It may even run and rev for about 2 seconds. Just out of curiosity, you could do a compression test to see if the rings are good and the valves are all closing. If someone did a valve clearance adju
  8. Only one event posted for 2021 so far. They do slow down these events in the winter. This is for all cars so it is not specific to Japanese cars SATURDAY FEB 27, AT 10 AM PST โ€“ 1 PM PST Cars (NO) Coffee 2233 6th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134-2001, United States The Shop Clubs invites you to attend our Cars (NO) Coffee this Saturday from 10a-1p. You canโ€™t miss this opportunity to show off your ride and check out some amazing vehicles along with our unique facility. These are all rain or shine events and Derby will be opening at 10am to serve amazing brunch specia
  9. It is organized by The Shop and it looks like they rotate through various types of cars and coffee events. I think they do this 2 or 3 times a year with Japanese cars as the theme. I have forgotten to check on their events page lately.
  10. Your question is not very clear. Are you asking if you can swap the entire engine and transmission or do you also want to swap in the brakes and rearend? The quick answer is that only the transmission is the same between those two. You can bolt in the transmission and I believe the 1975 620 used the long tail 5-speed so it should work. Some 620 trucks did have a slightly shorter transmission. The 620 truck has a 4-cyl L20b The 280Z has an inline six cylinder L28 and the L28 is much longer so would not 'fit' in the engine bay. ...now, there are a couple
  11. Stop the welding right now and go buy that car. ๐Ÿ˜„
  12. Looks like a strong brace to me, but you are the expert. :)
  13. Vancouver, WA Says 810, but I think this is a Datsun 210 https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDsGQJuf85zcZ1tAUOhDPQaL
  14. The brake calipers both look like front and rear from a Z32. I think there may also be similar calipers that game on the Nissan GTR but that would be far more rare. The rear hubs are re-drilled so it is probably just 5x4.5 The front looks OEM. I'm not sure, but I think the late Z31 turbo looks like that (strut assembly) and can also bolt up the Z32 caliper. Late Z31 would be 1987-89 300ZX If that is the case, then I suppose the rotor set that fits would be 1988 300ZX turbo.
  15. I've used the trailer for a few things and scratched the floor. I picked up a 720 tailgate but it is not in good condition. At the time, it was the only 'DATSUN' tailgate I could find in Washington. It really is bent pretty bad so I am still on the lookout for a 720 truck tailgate in better condition... Installed anyway just to use the trailer.
  16. This one was well attended. In addition to their parking area being full, there were cars parked on both sides of the street and down the street for a block when I arrived at 10:30am.

    King cab bed cover

    The kingcab bed is the same bed found on the standard cab short bed. So, if you happen to find a vintage bed cover for the regular bed, it will fit. For weather protection, I think a flat fiberglass cover is best. I don't think those were ever made back in the 1980s so you're not really going to find one except for a few custom made covers that are impossible to find these days. Make one yourself I guess :)
  18. Title updated! The next Japanese Cars & Coffee is a go! This Saturday, Sep 5th at 10:00am Teaming up with a local NSX club and Z-car Club, The Shop is hosting another Japanese Cars and Coffee event. "This will be a BRING YOUR OWN COFFEE event. We are asking that you wear a facemask while walking around the parking lot and practice standard social distancing."
  19. Another piece of junk near Portland https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/JN1MN04S9CM003428
  20. This is not the Datsun you're looking for... but it is a rare FWD Datsun 310GX. Sherwood Oregon! https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDBNjZIoRGPru1SB4B2vgWiO
  21. The Shop has confirmed that Japanese Cars & Coffee is still on for this next Saturday. (July 25th) Even though this is an outdoor event, they ask that everyone wear a mask. In the past they had provided coffee, but for now they ask that each person brings their own coffee. Enjoy cars, have fun.
  22. Hard to say. The trucks out in the yard never have wheels on them. They sell the wheels in sets inside the office. I usually forget to look at wheels when I'm there. These photos were taken by staff at each yard.
