  1. Fyi .... not sure if your waiting for the gauge to be able to drive the truck but I believe you can ruin the o2 sensor if it's not powered while the engine is running...
  2. I have that storage box bolted down in the bed now so dont worry the stack is safe..... plenty of room for the snow blower and ramps.... plow guy keeps destroying our yard and never shows up when needed, then shows up and plows an inch of snow so I get to snow blow this year... As far as the hoop it's for my 7 year old to practice.... it will be raised over time and hopefully with a correct back board and pole.... limited space for it though.... This was just a quick and cheap solution.... i found him using a bucket on top of the trash cans at first....
  3. Here's an idea that just hit me.... Can you possibly place the blaster next to the compressor tank then join the 2 tanks with a ratchet strap or something so the vibration from the compressor motor would vibrate the blaster tank and cause the media to settle to the bottom?
  4. Should be able to get that at just about any parts store.... First I would disconnect the wire from the sender and ground it ... that should make to gauge move to full hot... could be as simple as a corroded connection... Also be careful .... some senders just screw in while another style has no threads but uses a nut to secure it...
  5. I just added an aftermarket a/c to my 521... not vintage air but similar..... I had to source all the pieces and parts separately and i had to make the brackets and lines to suit my needs.... It wasn't hard just took some preplanning..... I would think the 720 would be a little easier since there was a factory option but I doubt you'll find a retrofit kit....

    Axle swap

    I was able to extract the diff fairly easily... I expected more of a challenge... My initial impression is lonewolf is getting a differential that's in real good shape.... I still want to do those other checks you talked about but so far everything seems nice and tight and spins smoothly...... oil was pretty new and nothing smelled weird.....
  7. Glad I wasn't alone in that thought
  8. Is it a little hand sand blaster with a hose to feed the material? If so try shortening the hose..... I found with the one I used having a long hose it didnt wanna feed any material....
  9. If your running real rich that could be the reason for the recent no start.... unless you in fact have no power at the coil.... Mine did that till I corrected the fuel pump psi and then the jetting.... but for me fuel pressure was the big thing..... Try fresh plugs..... Also you could bypass the ignition and temporarily put power to the coil from the battery and see if it starts.... this would tell you if the wiring or the coil was bad....
  10. I'm a little slow..... that's much funnier and I get it now...... For some reason I just saw clock your wife, and I'm thinking hit my wife.... I was thinking good luck with that..... Back to datsun stuff.....
  11. Its funny you say that... I just was doing some reading and they said the exact same thing.... As stated before I'll probably add a little more shim to the carrier bearing now and when I go and raise the front a little I wont bother worrying about correcting the carb angle.....
  12. I guess I can look into that a bit more.... If I raise the front up like I intend that will create a slight tilt toward the back.....
  13. Not really sure if that was ment to be funny or not.... I'll have to look for my pics from last year to do a write up on the odometer...
  14. But what about the carburetor? With the side draft I was reading somewhere about keeping it level?

    I would think you wanna leave the cam in..... if not you would risk losing the timing chain trying to rotate the motor....
  16. You can actually clock the odometer fairly easy.... I reset mine to zero after I rebuild my truck and engine.... I figured everything was new so I should start at zero with it's new life.....
  17. I'll probably add an extra degree and see if it makes it even better..... Couple things to note is I'm using a Volvo carrier bearing on my driveshaft and because of the rake of the truck I shimmed the transmission mount to level the carburetor .... So I have more than the normal stuff to think about.....
  18. This is what I was using....

    Axle swap

    So i might be sending lone wolf the diff I have.... are there things i can and or should check to make sure I don't send him junk?

    Axle swap

    If what wayno described is something you wanna do instead of a full axle swap you can message me, I have a complete axle assembly from a 520 with the 4.88 gear set in it that I will likely never use...... Bought a bed that was made into a trailer for my 521...I kept the leaf springs and the axle ..... I'd like to keep the housing and axles but I'm more than willing to part with the center section .....

    Spark knock?

    Do you mean for the wires? Remove the wire and connect a volt meter set to ohms . one lead from the meter to each end....

    Spark knock?

    I took distributorguy's suggestion and was able to get my wires to less than 1000 ohms... I think the one from the coil was 500 or 700 ohms.... Msd makes a nice low resistance wire set, 500 ohm per foot, for a v8 so you have 4 extra main wires if I want to route it differently later..... these are a make your own type, on one end and they give you a crimp tool....

  23. I definitely improved the vibration..... Cant believe I put up with it this long.... I am gonna leave it like that for now.... I want to raise the front a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch this winter, I hit the fender if I enter my driveway too quick... so i might have to do this one more time....
  24. So even after I replaced the u joint I still felt I had a bit of vibration at highway speed..... I checked my pinion angle again, maybe correctly this time but I'm still not really sure what the hell I'm doing..... Either way how I checked this time told me I should be shimming my carrier bearing up because the driveshaft from the transmission to the carrier was actual aiming down about 2 degrees. Transmission, rear driveshaft and rear differential all read zero..... So I added a 1/2 inch spacer.... Now my transmission, center driveshaft and rear differential all read zero and the back driveshaft aims up 2 degrees from the differential to the carrier..... And yes this was checked with all 4 tires on the ground..... I'm hoping I am right because this has been the only way it made sense to me.. Guess I'll find out heading to work tomorrow, hopefully I didn't make it worse..
  25. Makes a bit more sense now....
