    Bent valve?

    Read what Mike is saying.... more than likely your 180 degree out.... you need to be on the compression stroke of cylinder one with all the stuff lined up like he described...... If you do as you described you will likely ruin something if not the whole motor...
  2. It would probably be stupid to try to remove it then..... I guess the guy who's buying it is getting a sweet deal then.... Housing was in better shape than I thought.....
  3. Yes the striking rod is out and I assumed it would just fall off too.... it does not.... seems to be pivoting on a metal sleeve.... I'm trying to convince myself to just leave it on there.... problem is I broke that piece on my good 4spd... I did a solid repair but one of the only reason I bought that spare 4spd was that shifter piece.... But I'm running the 5spd now so why should this even matter....
  4. So how difficult is it to remove this piece from the tail housing? Helping out a fellow ratsun by selling him the tailhousing, but I kind of want that shifter piece.... Debating on leaving it on since its in better shape than what the buyer currently has..... I dont really wanna mess it up either.... I am running the 71b 5spd now so I really dont need but I kept my old 4spd as backup.... This is off a spare parts 4 spd I bought before I realized I could use the 71b with a slight mod.....
  5. I leave mine registered and ready to go year round but anything around 40 is a cold ride in the morning..... I think with my doors seals installed the heater might perform a little better.. Mostly it's the salt but lately the roads have been icy going to work so I wont risk it.....
  6. I'm surprised your not waiting till spring, but then again after all that work I would wanna drive it too.... Your more than welcome to the 488 gears I'm not trying to sell it so I'll have it ... I'll trade for yours if you have the 437.... I'd like a backup....
  7. So a deal fell through, I was going to sell the 488 gear set out of my extra axle... well I ended with an empty axle housing.... This somehow spawned the idea that I should do a 5 link and rear disks.... Well beebani offered up a deal so I jumped on the offer..... 3 link with the watts link, rear disk brake brackets and front coilover brackets.... This wont be getting done till next year as this pretty much used up all my spare cash for a bit and I will still need to source coilovers and all the new brake components, plus I have enough to keep me busy this winter.... this will also get me off my ass to finally clean up the bed ... On a sad note I think the datsun will be parked till spring.... getting to that point up here in the northeast.... till to get to work so shes ready for the spring....
  8. Is it possible the oil is from the transmission? There is a seal behind the front cover .... Even if not it wouldn't be a bad idea to put fresh seals on both the front and rear of the transmission.... you will need a new gasket for the front cover too.... Your already in there and the seals are cheap enough.... Oh if you haven't put it all back together yet replacing the pilot bushing in the end of the crank is a good idea.... not neccessary but again not a bad idea while your there....
  9. First you might want better connectors... something that is covered and insulates the exposed metal from touching... Better yet slip some shrink wrap on and cover the terminal ends.... Ok with that out of the way.... You need to determine which white wire is the battery lead.... So white battery to the B terminal Other white to the IG terminal.. White and red to the A terminal White and black to the S terminal I have no idea about the 5th terminal... just cover it just incase it has power...
  10. I might have what you need..... Bought an unknown condition 63 series 4 spd transmission for the internal parts just incase mine needed something I couldn't find... well I recently upgraded to a 71b stumpy 5 spd from a 720 and I'm holding my good 4spd as a backup but I might be willing to sell the tailhousing off the parts transmission.... Would you be interested in just the tailhousing? What's your time frame like?
  11. I'm not gonna be much help but the topic brings back some memories.... I had a mid 80s dodge colt as my second car at the end of high school...
  12. Any chance they look like this.... ? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fp%2F19006348878
  13. Ha... I thought this was ggpa620 s post... Welcome larry...

    Bent valve?

    To add to the oil leak comment... there is only a single small diameter hole that feeds oil to the head..... its between cylinders 2 and 3.... So dont go down the replace the head gasket route to quickly.... gdat210 stated the most likely location for leaks... Maybe start with a good cleaning of the motor then you'll be able to see where the leak is better.... careful of the electrical stuff like the distributor.... dont need to cause more trouble..
  15. You wouldnt believe how I drove it around my neighborhood for testing.... No glass anywhere.... no doors, fender, hood or bed .... and I had a red gas tank strapped to my battery behind the rear axle.... every time I needed motivation i would drive to the end of the road and back then get to work....
  16. Do what you need to first to get it running, driving and stopping.... Then worry about mods.... Having a running and driving datsun that your working on cosmetics and personal touches is way more fun than staring at a project for years..... Even once I got my 521 back on the road.. (took me 4 years, after it sat for 10)... I drove around for 2 months without door glass and only half a dash and many other items that didnt stop me from driving.... even still I've been driving mine for 2 summers now and I still need some interior work and I never refinished the bed yet... I do small fixes year round and larger projects during the winter.....
  17. Probably more like 171k.... Definitely needs a good cleaning but looks really straight..... Quick bit of advice keep any old parts you pull out till you absolutely dont need them ... then something's I would still keep... Like the seat can be reupholster, even if you want buckets that bench could be gold to other 620 owner....
  18. I was gonna ask this too.... Best thing I did was change over to an internally regulated altenator.... I had similar issues, so I tested my old altenator ( not the oem) and it was fine, then I wasted money on a new regulator, then a higher output external regulated altenator and always had inconsistent voltage... when I finally did an internal regulated altenator my voltage became more stable..... Might be worth it to look into verses replacing the regulator..
  19. Dont feel bad.... only reason I know is because I did it too.....
  20. Just an idea.... if your gonna start a new build thread put it in the truck 620 section..... you'll probably get more views and help... this area might get over looked while the 620 section will get the attention of other 620 and truck owners...
  21. I dont think your charging.... Where is the actual spade connector? Is it externally mounted to the case or is it coming from the inside? I could be wrong but that might not actually be a grounding terminal.... Try removing the spade and connect it to the case or a mounting bolt and see if it starts to change ....
  22. The 620 carrier bearing with the rubber is actually fairly cheap, around $50 and easily available... Not sure but you might need a press to swap it.. The 521 carrier bearing like wayno has is obsolete so sometimes you have to do what he was saying.... Good luck on the truck... definitely looks like it's in good shape....
  23. That was my bad.... misunderstood a comment of datsunmike......
  24. I did that to my sons... used parts from a junk atv... I was going to mount 2 car batteries in it but just bought him a 2 stroke atv instead.....
  25. Most of my ideas come from lack of money and my weird idea probably from the weed.... I try to figure out ways to accomplish things..... The logical side came up with that idea.... the weed side was saying grab the wife/girlfriend's vibrator and toss it in..... but that might get you in trouble... Keep up the good work....
