  1. Is it that it is not charging at 14volts or that there is a few amps of discharge when parked? You could hook up a meter in series with neg battery cable and should see a few amps draw sitting (dont start it). Then start to pull fuses and wires to narrow down the circuits.
  2. Finally selling the house and moving closer to some family in Oregon but I dont want to stay them as they are in the city and we are outdoor types. I would be open to rent a small home on property, like a in-law house or spare mobile home for a few months so we can search for properties. I have 4 young kids, so I cannot share a home as they are kids and you dont need to deal with hearing us tending to their behavior as we are old fashioned types. I'd have $400 cash extra per month for you and am open to work off the rest or make a deal: We are under 40 and kids are under 10years old, so we are brutally honest and dont have an issue sweating for whatever we need to do. This can happen asap, otherwise im looking at renting a house officially for $600 and its going to be hard on the funds. Thanks and appreciate it!
  3. A rear engine V8 swap looks to be in order next.
  4. Even trailer pics are acceptable as 1st postings here, must have them for intros :)
  5. Truck is driveable, paint protects from further rust, no worries there. I seen a newer car driving around with 1 body panel from every factory color offered, was pretty awesome actually. Looks clean, concentrate on drivetrain/suspension.
  6. I have used pretty much any 6lug on my Datsun trucks, the proper acorn or mag lugs will center the bolt holes around the 6x5.5 pattern isnt an issue. The major problem is the center hole if your a 4x4 it has the large center hole that just about touches the lugs, most are 2wd so you can use large or small center holes.
  7. SS head, bigger valves, port work, big cam, adj gear?
  8. Thats my plan, I have pretty much the major items in boxes still, plus some ideas to upgrade to a mustang II front end and keep the toyota 8" rear axle as its the Ford 9" of Japan. Its hard to do much more to it now, prepping for the move and all..... looking for a spot with min 1/2 acre... family in Bend has 40 acres for horse boarding.
  9. I thought of getting a 64-65 wide grill for the lower one. I"m just using spare parts from other projects, litterally trying to stay ratty on it. I have the original frame you can kinda see on the right background. I will be sanding it down, beefing it up, powdercoating it and laying it back in on original parts some time later after my fun. I'm leaving the newer firewall in cause I like the tilt wheel and new parts bolt in solidly. It runs on propane, drives good, will be moving up to be with family in Oregon soon, might need a half-way house for us to stay in up there while we awaiting on buying our house in OR, Go Ducks!!!
  10. Trying a forums thumbnail pic
  11. Just as a thought, if you wanted to keep it diesel but have parts way more readily available, think of using the Mercedes 240D/300D 4/5speed manual trans/4spd Auto along with the 4cyl/5cyl diesel engine choices.
  12. Will post pics soon, found some NL doors and installed them, welded on a ladder rack the hard way, shaved the doors, need 1 wing glass and channel felt. All is going well as planned, have a front push bumper ready to weld on and a rear I havent decided yet on how I want it.

    620 on a 720 frame??

    There are a few 620 4x4 trucks up in OR, I would save back about $3000 and await for one to pop up. I had a stock rare 620 4x4 with twin stick case and bubble back window for head room. They crop up every 3 months or so if your looking. The 79-85 solid axle Yota stuff is strong, cheap, plentiful, and upgradeable.
  14. If the stock carb looks complete, pop it back on and connect "ALL" the original vac lines and check fluids and try to start it to see what you really got. Assume the carb was off because it didnt run right, have to get it to that point so you can determine next step. If it runs like the carb is bad, double check the vacuum line routing is good and no cracks in them. Then try to run it without gas by substituting careful spray of Starting Fluid to see if it runs better, then tackle whether its fuel or spark related.
