  1. The parts hoarding has begun. Amazing what the local “ex-KA” drifter guys are basically giving away. Here are some pics of my collection so far: (don’t mind the pink valve cover..I have 4 more to play around with painting or powder coating) Anyone want a perfectly running webberized L20B and 5 speed? https://ratsun.net/classifieds/item/238-79-l20b-5-speed-webber-complete-and-running/

    Titan wheels.

    I see a lot of pics of 620’s with Titan wheels. In this reference pic does anyone know if this is with spacers or is that the regular offset? If spacers how thick?

    Titan wheels.

    The description on the nisssn part page you posted is incorrect. The description says alloy wheel but that part is the acorn style for steel wheels. Also...You would never ever use the shank style lugs with steel wheels.

    Titan wheels.

    Wow. Just wow.

    Titan wheels.

    Mike...you wanna take this one?

    Titan wheels.

    Anyway...I think the 18” titans use the shank style lug nuts and the ones I have need a little “hole maintenance”. Thanks everybody.

    Titan wheels.

    Hmmm...I think maybe the Nissan parts description or number is mixed up. There are 2 part numbers listed. 1 is for the shank style, 1 is for the acorn style. But I think the descriptions are wrong / opposite.

    Titan wheels.

    Ya I have the correct ones - I meant I’ll need to have them reamed (just slightly) to accept them again. The cone style ones the POS PO used smushed the hole just enough to not let them drop in properly. That should be doable correct?

    Titan wheels.

    Damn. Guess I’ll have these reamed / drilled out to accept the correct ones. Again. Thanks!

    Titan wheels.

    I finally got some 18” Titans. Question for others who have these - the lug nuts, are they supposed to be the cone / tapered seat style or the kind with a washer and a short shank that drops in the hole? The holes look like they need the shank style ones but the PO clearly used the cone taper style. Hope I’m explaining that somewhat clearly.

    79 5sp 620 rear end gearing.

    See attached pics. Does that “383” represent the gearing in my pumpkin? 3rd member. Whatever you want to call it. Is is there anyway that is what a 79 5sp KC came with? It’s ridiculously too low. I know I can get a...pumpkin..from a 720 ooor anything else? Not a hardbody correct? And what casting stamp (gearing) should I look for? I’m doing that KA swap with the 240 trans. I want it to be 240ish obviously.

    79 5sp 620 rear end gearing.

    I just can’t believe Nissan engineered and released the setup that is in my truck right now. Im pretty sure that rear end has been changed to something higher than stock (I do vaguely remember the PO saying something about it as well but he unfortunately died I think sooo...) Earlier this week when I had a payload as pictured below, a loaded KA, an engine hoist, 2 jacks, 2 jack stands and an engine stand, 1st gear was still worthless. I mean it did do fine in 5th at a constant interstate 70-80mph for a 4hr round trip to Orlando and back..but just wow. There was absolutely nothing left in that right pedal. Scream-ing. And I totally get it the that the L20B is designed as a high redline engine and that screaming is subjective to someone who normally drives modern cars. I get it, I get it. Anyway, we’ll just wait and see what the KA swap does with whatever is in that 🎃. Maybe it’ll be just right (to me).

    79 5sp 620 rear end gearing.

    Gotcha. I’ll wait and see. Great info. Thank you.

    79 5sp 620 rear end gearing.

    Well....with the current 5sp and rear end I have to shift so quickly just to get going. I’m in 5th gear constantly even on surface streets. On the interstate the RPM’s are just screaming in 5th (broken tach). 1st gear is basically useless. Its by no means quick. I’m assuming it’s because someone put some different gears in it at some point (hauling or towing use?) Once I have that KA and a 240 trans won’t I want “longer legs”? Or am I thinking about this wrong? Should I just wait and see how the KA and the 240 trans behaves?

    Not knowing the true history of my low cost ex-drifters KA...I tore it down. Now to find a machine shop in my area that knows KA’s. I just want to rebuild it stock unless it needs bored. Then maybe I’ll go with Wisecos and junk. I am really enjoying my week off 😬
