    620 rear sliding window???

    they are desirable when in good shape but most of them rattle constantly while driving and are hard to find new seal for. I noticed some of them have a large metal spacer at the top that make them fit better and i think it looks bad(kc has bigger window than standard cab). Also think the bare aluminium ones stick out and don't look as nice as a flat one, but they are more practical.

    1974 620 been sitting...trying to get it running

    Lots of good info on the stock carb. but no one really answered the weber question. The weber is a lot simpler than the stock carb. Lots of diagrams and info available for them too. I would recommend getting one. especially if your not familiar with carbs. took me a while to comprehend all the circuits and functions, allot easier to learn on a weber 32/36.

    What Paint To Use On The Frame

    for epoxy, any dupont (now axalta) brand is pretty good. on the cheaper side they have a nasons brand. Otherwise people swear by (forgot brand atm, will update when i remember) In canada i found endura to be the best bang for buck. When doing my research prior to painting my frame. it seemed the general consensus was self-etch prior to the epoxy being easily available, but now seems most are switching to epoxy. That being said the self etech is still a good solution that will provide good rust prevention. Other notes for epoxy Will take a loooong time to dry if its too cold Needs good ventilation (new laws have reduced the amount of hazardous chems in it but still bad to inhale). The epoxy must be mixed in the correct proportions as it is a catalyzed reaction. however this is also why it is so good, it essentially encapsulates the frame in plastic.

    What Paint To Use On The Frame

    Epoxy primer is the best you can get in terms of moisture barrier and rust prevention but you probably want a clean frame first. Additionally it must be topcoated as it is not uv resistant. I just blasted , epoxied and top coated a frame. There is a slight learning curve when figuring out what epoxy primer to use. Solvent based high solids for primer, solvent based mid to low solids for sealer.

    Wiring 620 for M-Unit Blue

    Ahh i missed that it was bluetooth. I Agree with Stoffrengen, no thanks. The plastic shielding on the old wires get really brittle and vibrations can end up breaking them causing shorts. don't think vinegar will help that.

    Wiring 620 for M-Unit Blue

    Nice, Unfortunately most of your pics aren't working for me though. Would you say that the m-unit simplified the wiring? or what would you say the benefit of the m unit is over just making a new harness like the stock one? I think his main concerns were grounding/shorts from corrosion. I'm thinking of doing the same.

    620 sr20det wiring

    Yes canam and mounts are nice if you got the cash and want an easy install. However, I feel like mentioning that the same can be accomplished with 3 fused relays and l16 rubber mounts. Edit: I see your in cali so those parts are not too much. Mostly writing for anyone not in the USA that reads this thread.

    Important Information About Tapered Inserts

    You may already know but just incase it helps some others out i'll explain the best method to drill these out. Basically the larger the bit the slower you want to drill. this is because a larger bit spinning at the same rpm as a smaller bit is actually moving much faster. So to drill through these you need to go slow with A LOT of pressure. you'd be surprised how much more you can cut when you have speed and pressure right. However, I think there probably is a variance in metal hardness as i've come across the odd bolt that was insanely strong. Hope the next shop is able to do if for ya.

    Mine has a sticker on the rad support when you pop the hood. although i can only make out 2 of the numbers on mine - they fade easy:(

    KA24DE vs SR20DET realistic price of swap

    Not sure why you decided z32. if you do ball joint swap and d21 drop spindles at the same time and use the the d21 awd front brakes, they will bolt right up no adapter needed. will be better steering geometry if you wanted to go lower too.

    Important Information About Tapered Inserts

    I used a cheap princess auto bit (canadian harbor freight) Although i had to sharpen it like 10 times to get the 2 holes done. It wasn't perfect but within acceptable tolerance. Definitely a better idea to drill press. I was just being lazy since my pitman was being a c**t.

    Important Information About Tapered Inserts

    By hand only because the pitman arm won't come off. I've heard of people breaking pullers trying to remove them. its a real pain. Try yours if you have a puller, maybe you'll be lucky and it'll come off.
