    Hand crank for a 320?

    While we're talking fabricating hard to find stuff, does anyone know if the stock 320 ladder racks/roll bar things ever made it to the states? I'd love to get pictures and measurements of one to maybe fabricate up.

    Not sure if you're going to do a rebuild or not but if so you could always bore out your J13 to a J15 for a little extra pep. The rebuild kids are readily available at forklift parts places online.

    Great info I'm definitely now keeping my eyes open. I'd love to find a stock looking 15" wheel that fits the stock 320 hubcaps.

    I've got a J15 in my '62 320 and its been great. Parts are easy to get and cheap through forklift parts places online and some MG stuff fits too. I bought a rebuilt MG distributor that bolted right up with MG clamp and all. The timing and firing order was even the same. Bring this puppy back to life!

    New 320 owner, 62?

    Here's a pic of the stainless exhaust adapter I cut down and used to fit a stock 320 air cleaner to a J15 carburetor. And below it is a pic of my new air cleaner all cleaned up. Inside the housing the paint was in great shape so I cleaned it up and had the local auto paint store use their magic camera to do a paint match and mix it in a rattle can. I sanded the housing down, gave it a handful of coats and there you go. Oh and I cut a new piece of rubber into a new rubber boot where it clamps down. And I wire brushed up the clamp arm.

    My wife and I had baby #2 so the project has slowed down but today I hooked up an uncut 320 air cleaner I scored. I'm running a J15 motor and J15 carb but was able to use an exhaust adapter to go from the 2.75 carb opening to the 2.5 air cleaner opening. It bumps the whole assemble up a little but it clears the hood no sweat.

    Pulling my L320 from mothballs

    That makes sense. I've got a low vin number '62.

    Pulling my L320 from mothballs

    I bought these off that guy's eBay store: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-320-Original-Sun-Visors/152845034501?hash=item2396462405:g:iPMAAOSwg8taRUqE Are they stock 320? The contour of the chrome mounts fit the contour of where they attach on my 320 above the windshield but the existing hole pattern above my windshield is different .

    Electronic Ignition Upgrade for your Datsun 320 Truck

    ^^^ For sure. Also I used my 320 hold down clamp on the Lucas 25d and it fit like it was made for it.

    Electronic Ignition Upgrade for your Datsun 320 Truck

    ^^^^Shoutout to Distributorguy he knows his stuff. He coached me on the casting markings for the old Lucas 25d distributors and I picked up a rebuilt one from the early 60s on eBay for $100. Gapped the points and my truck runs like new. Starts first crank, idles beautifully. Feels peppy when I accelerate. I thought I was having problems getting the timing dialed in and carb adjusted but I think most of my issues were the shitty stock 320 distributor.
