    Glass shops here will cut mirrors to fit and silicone them in. Last one I had done was under $20.

    By the way d.p I am just joking with you about the money wasted on parts for your 521. This is an unavoidable rabbit hole that any one doing modding on any car or truck experiences, myself included. Years ago when there was a good rotating stock of various Datsun/Nissan cars and trucks in the wrecking yards I would spend days in various yards pulling parts and trying them on on trucks like I owned and was modding. When my brother and I put my first Z20 5 speed in a 69 521 J13, this truck was AZ titled and registered as a 1970 because even though it was a 69 it was first sold in

    I am told the 720 Z24 block mounted alternator bracket moves the alternator up toward the water neck making more room for a larger alternator. I think that is the style bracket on my L20B in my 66 520. The block alternator bracket mounting holes are the same on the L20B,the Z20, Z22, and the Z24. I do not remember if the L16 and L18 blocks are the same but I believe they are. I am also running the 280zx water inlet neck that has a threaded hole instead of a cast in hose nipple. This combination I was able to get a 100 amp Saturn alternator in my 66 520 with the 66
  5. What fuel pump is on your truck, is it a low pressure? What carburetor is on your truck?

    I have found over the decades I have been enjoying Datsun trucks that if you find an OEM NOS part that you want you better buy it as next week the price will be higher. d.p how much cash did you piss away trying to get an alternator? My step mother is always passing on buying something she wants thinking she will find it cheaper and ends up going back to get it and it will be sold. This saves my father a lot of money!!! LOL
  7. Most automotive paint stores can mix paint and put it into spray can.

    Taiwan should be your first clue.
  10. All the clean and pretty hardware and center stage is an old dirty cable housing! LOL When you get the cable figured out have a motorcycle shop make you a new cable.

    Too much info Mike!!! LOL
  12. You have a feed back carb if there is 6 wires going to it. First do you have emissions inspection where you live? If not then a Weber DGEV 32/36 will work. It is what I run on my 86 720 and all my Nissan/Datsun trucks. I have to go through emissions every 2 years here in Phoenix AZ and they do not care what carb is on the vehicle. They put the sniffer in the exhaust for idle, high speed, and deceleration tests. The EGR has to work. I buy my Webers and Weber parts from Pierce Manifolds. https://www.piercemanifolds.com/
  13. Your taillights in the picture are vetical in the bed the taillights. The ones I have are horizontal under the bed taillights.

    Pull your dip stick and smell the oil on the tip. Any odor of gas change oil and filter. Not rocket science!!! LOL
  15. Put an ad for one in the Ratsun Classifieds. The thread is most likely metric as all other threads on a 720 are metric.

    I prefer the ride and handling of the 720 ball joint front suspension over the 521 kingpin.
  17. Ask seller for measurements and if it is negative or positive ground, depending on your truck ground.
  18. What you have is better than nothing. Used worse ones on logging trucks with no problems, just be sure to file off any burrs on the side of the locking nut.
  19. Contact Ratsun member: https://ratsun.net/profile/468-hosestopmsncom/ He makes the hoses we need. Quality stuff good person tor work with. His email is: hosestop@msn.com
  20. datsunfreak that is kool, I would love to find one of the Redlines like you pictured for 66 520. I have not seen that type either. Maybe the one I have is an EMPI knock off. The Weber is here and is clean inside so I will put it on a Z24 and find out if it is good. It has been used but does not show any wear on the trottle shaft. It is an old brass float model which I prefer.
  21. Can you talke your radiator to a radiator shop for repair recore? I hate that these websites do not show out of stock until you try to order it.
  22. Just click on the link. Duralast Radiator A692 Part # A692 SKU # 234005
