    Nice work! Did you get the engine gaskets?

    Nice work on that fuel pump.

    Everyone's got their own formulas but I like Simple Green, steel wool, and scotch brite pads. And for the really bad stuff a wire brush on a 4" grinder.
  4. I've got a good hotrod glass place that figured out the 60s ford pickup back glass gaskets fit the front/back glass for the 320s. They also figured out the Jeep Commander front glass fit the curve of the 320 and cut me one to fit. They said they're confident they can find 1/4 glass gaskets they can cut up and glue to fit. I still have a long way to go before I'm ready to put my glass back in but if there's nothing available by that time that's the route I'll prob go.
  5. Is it a pipedream to think the manufacturer might sell direct to consumer? Maybe the margins for them could make it worth their while?

    Do you know if 620 wheels will take a 320 hubcap? Really I'd like to find a 15" wheel that'll accept the stock 320 hubcaps.

    Great looking truck. I'd love to see more pics. I see the 1300 on the block but the engine tag reads J15. Isn't a J15 just a bored J13? If you're ditching the column shift have a nice shift lever with a working spring I might be interested. I might have some stuff to trade. I for sure have a bunch of brand new J engine seals.

    Which begs the question--would MGB or Rover headlight gaskets fit stock 320 rings? I was planning on buying rubber stock and cutting all new stuff but I'd love not to have to.

    All those extra parts are 320 gold

    New 320 owner, 62?

    Set the motor/trans to hang new exhaust while I'm waiting for new clutch parts. Also replaced the transmission mounts with new 1980s Volvo mounts. Did the front suspension/ball joints and will hopefully get the cab back from paint in the next couple weeks.
  12. Great info everyone, thank you.
  13. Does anyone know what to torque them at? Mine were pretty dang snug when I took them off so I tried to snug them in that ballpark. Also did anyone else watch the blue glove video and see those little white nylon washers he uses between the bushing the arms? Would it be good to include them?
