  1. Where did you source that 15/16" master? Also did you make the adapter plate for it? I've looked around for a similar setup but none of the ones I see listed include the reservoirs. I have the stock booster from 77'
  2. Ooh a deluxe model! Nice start for a build man, best of luck with your plans for it.
  3. 1979 Datsun 620 Longbed https://medford.craigslist.org/cto/d/grants-pass-1979-datun-pick-up/7261963263.html
  4. Love the patina and KA swap! Thanks for sharing the build, glad you got the truck back.
  5. Sorry about the bold, I was copy/pasting and it messed with the format. The truck was leaking a bit from the rear main when I got it, and I'm sure I'm not helping with the synthetic I went with. I realize now that the Rotella or Chevron route is more appropriate and I'll switch to that next time around. For now I'll put in some additive and keep the miles low (easy in the winter). I want this L20 to last so thanks for the info Mike. I definitely eyed the replacement from rock auto before doing the DIY version. The problem was that I was unsure about the diameter to go wi
  6. Thanks @Crashtd420 for the recommendation of Royal Purple/Zinc additive. I'll be sure to pick some up soon. I've only driven it 50 miles or so on the Mobile 1 so I should be alright. Update 2 Engine was running ok, but a noticeable ticking noise was coming from the valve cover. I found a few tutorials on valve adjustment for l-series motors (the best ones were for Z cars, same rules apply but with 2 less cylinders) and went by that. Ground down one of my 14mm wrench and used a skinny feeler gauge which helped a ton. 7 out of the 8 valves were out of spec! Some were seve
  7. Update 1 Since the truck was delivered, I've addressed a few things. I replaced a few bulbs and got it registered and insured. The fuel filter was pretty nasty, so I replaced it also noticing a few particulates in the new one after running the truck. I'll have to drop the tank and get it cleaned out and re-sealed in the future, but it’s fine for now. I did an oil change with 10w-40 Mobile 1 and a Napa Gold 1515 after hearing that recommended here. I won’t knock people for running the Titan wheels on their trucks, but they just aren’t my thing. Not only tha
  8. Feel’s good to be back. First joined Ratsun in 2009 as an automotive tech school student with a really solid 73’ 620 that served as my very first project. I loved that truck, and got to enjoy it for about a year before I unfortunately crashed it and had to sell it off for parts. It was painful, I was young and naïve and didn’t truly appreciate what I had. Even though it didn’t work out with my first attempt, it solidified my love of old Japanese cars(especially Datsuns), and I’m thankful for that. After school I moved to Chicago for a couple years, then eventually bac
  9. http://stlouis.craigslist.org/cto/2349694187.html $500 seems good...
  10. I thoroughly enjoy a good craft brew. Some of my favorites: Odell Levity and IPA All Coney Island Brews Boulevard Wheat and Amber Any kind of Hefeweisen New Belgium Lips of Faith Blond All Big Sky Brewing Co. (especially Trout Slayer and Moose Drool) Saison DuPonte Shiner Bock, Blonde, 101, 102, Jamaican Black Lager I could keep going...
  11. The last picture is my favorite. Looks like the babe enjoys it too!

  15. Yo Mike did the block work out okay? Next time I'm home I want to come by and see the beast. Workin on getting an internship this summer so I can have some funding for a S30 or another truck. Good work so far!
  16. good story and build so far. I know how dreams of big power can be left behind by reality and finances. I like the idea of saving an L16 and the carb looks great now. Keep it up man, looking forward to seeing it run!
  17. Chucks Boots 1.56 K/D ready to pwn whenever, but I'm really diggin my Kinect right now.
  18. Wow dude beautiful work. I wish I had the resources available for such a build!
  19. i would take the rolls, sell it, and buy 10 dattos! :lol:
  20. What up Dan! Liking the last update, is she runnin' on L power currently or still waiting for that cross member flip to really start the madness? Either way, I am always willing to come over and work on the dime with you. BTW I have the opportunity (and the finances) to pick up another 73' truck. It's in Georgia, which is about a 20Hr. trip total, but hey it's a Datsun right? If I can find a place to keep it, and my parents don't kill me for spending my money, I'll have another truck.

    It's been done, but with some well thought out fabrication and fitment. I believe another member is in the process of making a kit right now...
  22. Wow man fabulous deal for 650. I like the solid state of the truck, looks really strong especially with the new heart!
