  1. It's a Japanese style (anime) sci-fi cartoon on the Netflix streaming service. I went back and got all the good ones: The truck appears and is RPG'd in epi 7. https://imgur.com/a/38MPfUw https://imgur.com/a/Y438LjC https://imgur.com/a/UoPWQ7g https://imgur.com/a/UoPWQ7g https://imgur.com/PNFWAiK https://imgur.com/RklnjwT https://imgur.com/YsQvJew https://imgur.com/xVmaqSf
  2. It's a 620 King Cab. Early grille. Even some of the instrument cluster. However, NO "DATSUN" on the tailgate - it was left blank. Tried to find images or clips but no luck.
  3. Factory Service Manual (which I have !!!!)
  4. SOLVED: It turns out the hole locations are in the FSM - both for Fender and Door mounts! DUH! (Homer Simpson) Didn't anyone know this?
  5. Unfortunately, there are no part numbers for the main body nor are there pics of the vacuum hose routing/connections. I checked the parts manual and there are 7 configurations: L16 to Aug 1972 L16 from Sep 1972 - hose fitting on base of snorkel L18 - all: angled heat duct pipe since the straight one hits the EGR L20B - all: hose fitting near base of snorkel A) to Jul 76 B) Aug 76 to Jun 78 had Altitude Compensation C & D) from Jul 78 two variants: FED: #18 is a hose, CA Camp: #18 became a T
  6. I know mine does not have the retractors. Has anyone done this?
  7. I was offered it when I contacted my account rep to complain about my rates. I'm pretty sure you have to call them and ask to setup an account.
  8. You DEFINITELY want to look at this promotion. I got eBay UPS discount years ago, then got sighed up with a Volume (more you do, less you pay) account with sucked balls. So I called in a couple days ago, got a new account rep, and she totally hooked me up with these rates - just look at how big those "percents" are in the unformatted table - who cares which ones apply, the smallest are huge compared to retail.
  9. Long story short: Ground Residential is 30% discount, Ground Commercial is 38% for 1-20#, more discount for heavier weights. International is 61%. Have to signup by Monday.

  10. The issue with adjuster is "which end is up" The FSM clearly has the screws facing forward. So with a RH thread on the RHS of the axle, at the backing plate adjusting hole, wheel UP will spread the shoes. That is opposite from the FSM adjustment instructions. I think it is possible to put the adjuster screw facing either forward or rearward which causes the "wheel up" or "wheel down" to flip which might be a simple solution if faced with having to use the wrong type thread. WHY REPLACE: The T-slot broke off from corrosion. So the adjuster assembly would not be sliding in the backing plate slot. NOTE: I did a repair where I drilled and tapped a 1/4" hole for a carriage bolt. I filed the head square and the square portion under it's head was very close to the right size for the slot. The clips seemed to engage sufficiently with the resulting fore-aft slop from a bolt instead of the full section. EDIT NOTE: Since I've broken the housing, and that the housing is probably the weak point, it's a moot point if I don't have the LH screw in these cheap replacements.
  11. Thanks. Are you sure? Although not specifically stated in the FSM, I'm thinking it's the opposite from: 1974 FSM: 1) "Turn DOWN adjuster wheel with a screwdriver, and spread brake shoes." 2) Turn DOWN until heavy drag or drum is locked up. 3) Back off 12 clicks. To spread, "wheel down" means screwdriver handle is pushed upward. Sometimes it is not clear what is "up" or what is "down." From FSM exploded view or rear brake : The screw is oriented forward. On the RHS, to spread, winding out screw CCW results in the inboard side of screw going UP.
  12. They advertise both part numbers for the LH and RH threaded assemblies, but they ship you a pair of RH threaded. (Anyone know off-hand which side the RH threads go on?) I'm on my 3rd reply to them (eBay) and am about to file a Not As Described. I may be screwed because when I inspected them, they look OK and gave them a positive feedback. (Of course eBay is really bending over backwards for buyers so maybe I can still initiate a complaint.)
  13. SOLVED ?? (NOTE: The old emojis were better) It was the new hose with the molded bend - the bend was acting like a "ski jump" and launching the fuel stream up into the venting air stream. The OE hose I removed was straight although the tank neck and filler neck were not co-linear. So I decided to get a hose with the proper bend in it. My solution was to keep cutting the bend back, try the fit and if there was any indication of a localized change to the flow path, remove and cut back some more. I ended up with a straight segment from tank to filler necks with a little bend left on the tank end that made for a better hose clamping. Today it took FULL THROTTLE at the gas pump. Finally.....
  14. One of the Holy Grails of 620's. Good luck!
