    Here's Photobucket if the last one didn't work. Please excuse senior citizen ineptitude with internet. http://s1280.photobucket.com/user/1980Datsun720/media/610 Goon The Pumpkin_zpsyzjlizat.jpg.html?filters[user]=137774829&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0

I wire wheeled the steelies and barbeque painted. Then shod with brand new "Sailun" tires. Well, at least the rims are 14's! I'm nickel and diming it, although it ain't a dime. Unless 610's count. Troy Ermish, eat your heart out!

    I could only get one photo to download on Photobucket. https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOEZK70M_lMYuqujU92ZP6CDUuyc7xJ_Poy3W9G4YoxHuqjr7BMcEOI0ru50zO3_w?key=RGNRU05rNnFqbTNNUWZBUVBGdWNiQmtEQ2txZUtn

    Schlepped drums to a Relay for Life cancer benefit gig this afternoon using the Pumpkin as transpo. It worked fine. No gas problem even with kinky hoses. Only problem is it's such a chick magnet and I'm happily married 38 years.

    I will try the photo stuff later. I am just back from slamming drums for 2 hours with surf rock group Band O Loko, and doing that sh!t drains the energy out of a 68 year old! At least I get a temporary reprieve from breathing gas fumes. I will probably just drive the Pumpkin for a while and see what happens. Hopefully it won't blow up. There's gotta be some guy in Thailand, hopefully not stranded in a cave, who has these vent tank hoses for sale.

    Trying submit other media again. It says I "don't have existing attachments". wtd? Do I have to go somewhere and generate an "existing attachment"? These damned hoses were venting alright . . . right to my lungs and brain. maybe kinked is better than that, but if I could get a source for those pre-bent hoses I'd bloody my hands again and tear that mother f-er out and do it right this time. Your 710 doesn't have this feature, right?

    74 610 goon fuel vent tank hoses

    Does anyone have a source for the hoses that go to the vent tank (after the filler) coming and going from main tank? The two I have are marked 3910 (snorkel shaped and 3905 with a mild 90 degree bend. PS, I traded my son my 72 510 goon for this 74 610, orange, hence "the Pumpkin". I painted the steelies with barbeque paint, put in 2" exhaust with turbo muffler, did minor cleanup/amenities and fixed the headlights, so far. It has a Weber 32/36 on the L20b. PPS I can't figure out how to copy pix. I used to be able to. Insert existing attachment . . . huh? PPPS will it mess anything up to run it with the kinked lines? I have already stripped the air pump and other useless pollution control. These vent tank lines had completely rotted and were gassing me out big time!
  11. We don't live in a perfect world. But it's pretty damn close when you're driving a Datsun! The Weber 32/36 DGV helps. Manual choke. Crazy loud glasspack exhaust. Thank you to all Ratsun peeps who have given me valuable advice on the path of getting this bucket from field find to ugly (but running) duckling.

    Clutch Hose Line unfreeze hack

    The wind kept blowing out my flame and when I could get it going it kept making a scary ignition of something--inverted canister? Whatever-- the soldering irons did the trick.

    Clutch Hose Line unfreeze hack

    Here's the hint from Hell, Louise: Those stubborn clutch line fittings to slave and master cylinder. Somebody recommended heat. I tried my mini propane tank nozzle firuing it up but it flamed out either when it fired up the saturation of liquid wrench or because, as the canister said " use upright". So I still needed to heat it. Here's the hack: I took a six way electric strip and plugged in two soldering irons and held them on the joint for what seemed a long enough time. Voila! 45 years of seized junction cracked open like Madonna on a Saturday night! I'm a genius!

    The mysterious leak turns out to be coming from the master cylinder.
