  1. The bracket came in yesterday... Its actually quite nice.... good welds and it seems the parts were water jetted .... Compressor fit so that's a plus....
  2. That's the problem.... I cant.... After the oil pan ordeal with the datsun and all the bull I was dealing with my Chevy I just didnt pickup.... Now I have no choice....
  3. Went to do some work in the garage and realized I am a slob.... my work bench is a disgrace..... Had to clean up some before I get started on this ac project.....

    That one looked a bit smaller than the one I used so I think you'll be ok....

    I think they are actually m12 but I could be wrong...

    Wasnt the bolt length it was the spacing of the 4 arms that wouldnt fit.... couldn't get them close enough for the top 2 bolts....

    Nice score.... you got everything I would and for 100 cant go wrong.... no idea on the leaf springs....
  8. I used one like that on my 521.... my heater core has a penny where the valve should be.... It will work, my problem now is I broke the cable I used to actuate it, so get a good cable.... I used a choke cable but the crimp near the knob let go, so I can open it but not close it....

    Do you have a set of measuring calipers? You can check the hole in the bumper vs the stem diameter.....

    Just get some lube on them, twist and turn them and work them in.... things like that are a pain in the ass.... the ones that go in the fenders for the hood are just as bad....
  11. In order to do new vent window seals you have to.... the lower post goes through the rubber..... so to do it properly the window has to be removed from the frame, which means the rivet need to be removed...
  12. Also Inside the door the post that the window pivots on has a spring and a nut.... I'm sure they have to both be good to function right....
  13. My vent windows dont stay open to good..... I guess I didnt put enough tension on the spring and nut when I rebuilt them.... I do get plenty of air between the hood vent, windows and I have the rear slider... but as you said as long as I'm moving.... just not enough around town..
  14. Wish I was closer to help more.... I have a shop and a friend that could probably help.... plus what I could possibly do... but that doesnt really do you any good...
  15. This is what I was thinking.... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F122042018934 But cant find an appropriate straight shank to match... This is what I have.... Covers 3/16 - 3/4 and fits a standard drill ... I think it's a 3/8 shank... Not sure what else to suggest....
  16. Well I think the car gods had pity on me... put the new calipers on the Chevy and was able to bleed the system without issue and no leak..... back up and driving... Driving home after work in the datsun was brutal today.... 90 degrees out and the downtown clock said 109 under the sun.... I will say even in this heat it's been running flawless.... the tunes been good and the temp gauge stays where it should and haven't had a miss fire since I adjusted the timing..... now back to the ac idea.... The line kit I ordered arrived yesterday and compressor came in today, wasn't 100% sure what the fittings on the compressor would be and luckily they were the #10 and #8 line fitting like I was hoping .. so far things are correct and I think I'll have everything I'll need .... just need the rest of the parts to arrive so I can mock up placement and lines.....
  17. Ya this one was just in front of the tank.... I fixed the line years ago behind the tank.... this time I had to replace the entire line from the abs module to the rubber line in the back.... this whole truck is just about falling apart, still safe but not pretty.... I just need one more sticker and one more winter out of it.... I was trying to get to to roll over 300,000 but i dont think I'll make it.... I'm at 283,000 .... I cant complain.. I haven't done anything to the truck since the last sticker other than oil changes.... so after 1 year of not spending any money I have to spend 150 to pass inspection.. much cheaper than a truck payment....
  18. 11 volts would indicate a bad or dieing battery.... if you check at the battery do you get the same 11v? Even a dead battery should show 12 if in good condition.... you might even have a current draw running the battery down....
  19. Lol.... ya you'll be hanging low.... that bad boy weight around 5000lbs....
  20. Little bit more random stuff for my thread.... this should interest the machinists out there..... Might not look like it but this was probably the biggest pain in the ass job I've had to deal with.... 48" diameter hydrostatic bearing with 72 1/2-20 threaded holes in 4140 steel.... 2 parts for a total of 144 hole.... glad that's done....
  21. Are you trying to keep them and they are forcing you to part with them? Is it possible move them out of view and/ or secure them with a garage type structure or even fence them in so they cant be seen? Or would that even matter to the county... Shame people cant leave others alone.....

    First thought is bad accelerator pump.... Do your self a favor make a build/ my vehicle thread in the 720 section you might have better luck with responses.... You have a lot of posts in random locations....
  23. I know you said Carter but which model pump did you get...... Find a way to verify your preassure because the weber only wants around 3 psi....
  24. Well the datsun to the rescue for another day... Got the Chevy ready to go and then the brake line heading to the rear decided to blow out... such fun...
  25. Got my vote in .... good luck...
