    620 : Hazards don't work if holding brake

    I also had a feeling that might have been stock, but I never had anyone else try to check. I'll be checking with one of my local club members later this week, thank you for the information.

    620 : Hazards don't work if holding brake

    Title pretty much says all. If I am holding the brakes, and I pull the hazard, it won't blink, it'll just hold the hazard on. Does anyone know what could cause this? Is it possibly too much power being drawn from the brake lights? Or a bad back end ground? It's not the biggest problem, I can just pull my E brake and my hazards work.

    Rusted Hope v2? 76' long bed 620

    A 2 bolt flange was welded to it. Its a tight fit between the motor and frame but its in. When the header was in your 510, how did you hook it up to your downpipe?

    Rusted Hope v2? 76' long bed 620

    I guess it's due time for a little update? I don't do too much on my truck besides regular maintenance, since i daily drive it and use it for my work. Most of this work that I had done was done just about a week before Canby in preparation for the trip. Went to a fellow club members place who was parting out a 75' long bed from Oregon, and took a few parts, like a lock set, windows, and the battery tray section. Seriously appreciate the parts he gave me. I'm going to be sand blasting and repairing the little bits of rust on the blue section, and taking what is salvageable (Blue 620 front was smashed from p.o.) and grafting it to my truck. In prep for Canby, my battery was just about to fall out of the ghetto repair we did about a year ago, so I went ahead and made another ghetto repair. Some license plates I picked up for buck cheap at some swapmeets, and a bunch of rivets, made for a pretty sturdy tray. Replaced the windshield and windshield gasket, and Canby was the test to see if it leaked or not. Didn't leak :thumbup: :thumbup: My 240z seats I threw in started to get really uncomfortable in long trips. It's really supportive if you're hitting mountain roads pretty hard, but more than a few hours and your back is pretty sore. So I was really lucky to find a local guy that had a black, notched seat in really good condition, with just a few rips here and there. And my favorite part, SU's baby. It took me a long time to get the right weekend to throw these on. The hardest challenge I had was converting the Mechanical linkage to Cable pull linkage, and I was thinking of using a shaved bolt as the linkage bar, but I took a 280zx intake runner linkage bar, cut it to length, drilled holes, tapped and attached a Nissan Altima Bell Crank. The only problem with my setup is the very intense curved angles the throttle cable is doing, due to my SU's "Smog equipment" and balance tube. This piece is a failed piece, because I didn't realize that a small section of the bar has hardened steel, but you get the idea. (Yes the throttle cable bracket is very ugly, I just kinda slotted holes until it worked)

    1977 long bed bad brakes

    I've had quite a similar problem as well. 76' with stock 4-way drums. Before Canby I tried to rebleed my entire system and that caused me to have incredibly soft brakes and nearly no pressure. After multiple tries in fixing it, I went ahead and replaced the MC with a 7/8" mc for a Z, and it gave me pressure, but only in the second half of the brake pedal travel. I raised the entire system, bled it thoroughly in order Front MC, Rear MC, Front NLSV, Front R, Front L, Rear L, Rear R, Rear NLSV, Center NLSV. Bench Bled MC, and solid fluid when bleeding. Proceeded to Adjust the brakes like Datzenmike states, and I fear that my NLSV still traps air back and forth within itself, or it is bad. After driving the 1200 miles, my braking situation changed from needing a two pump to brake nicely, I had good pressure with one pump, but the front brakes don't feel like theyre grabbing as hard as the rear, and the front brakes squeal and squeak as if there isn't enough pressure in the front. If your situation is similar to mine, my guess is that you have okay brakes, soft in half the pedal, harder in the 2nd half. And if you release and pump again you'll have good pressure hold and braking. My best bet for you is to completely make sure that the NLSV is completely bled, through and through. I think if air is trapped within, or if its bad, it'll act as if your truck is either "loaded in the rear" or on an incline, causing inadequate pressure to the fronts or rear. I've tapped my NLSV with a hammer once to see if that ever did anything, but I never really noticed it. @datzenmike Do you know if people who owned a 75-77 620 that came equipped with the NLSV and 4-way drums have trouble bleeding the brakes alot? I suspect that the 78-79 with discs in the front have a much easier time in bleeding. One annoyance with my '76' Datsun Pick up Service Manual by Nissan' is that it does not state the bleeding order of the 620 with the NLSV. One word of advice in bleeding drum brakes (By my personal experience) Is to make sure that all of your brakes are adjusted correctly before doing a full bleed. If you have one brakes with inadequate grab (as in it's out of adjustment) it can cause weak braking, especially if its the fronts.

    Canby 2018 presented by DNW

    Definitely one of the best canby shows I've been to. Spent so much time talking to everyone, I kept forgetting to go buy parts and look at cars. Still had a hell of a time even with the rain.

    How much do drive your vintage Datsun???

    I daily drive my 620, I put just over 18,000 in about a year.

    I like it! Good looking patch work, can't wait to see a full pic of 'er! If you want to even take it further, I think Rust-Oleum makes textured plastic paint to match it even further. But I don't have any personal experience with them.

    I'm not a front spoiler kinda guy, but If I were you, I'd go with the mk1 duckbill, it flows better than the Steroid or camaro. And it looks real good from the mocking up photos.

    Original keys

    Does anyone have their original set of keys for a 620? I can't find any reference material of what an original set of keys look like. Is it two keys for ignition and doors or just one key? If anyone could post pictures I would very much appreciate it.

    Wrecking Yard Report

    Sacramento Pick N pull has this S12, but this photo was a few weeks ago. Pretty messed up but still has what looks to be a complete VG30, and still has the good rear end.

    Survey: what tire/wheel size do you run?

    I'm running 195/75/r14's on the stock 620 rims. I've got a set of slot mags that are 14x6.5 and I'm planning on running 185/60 on those.
