  4. It's been a while since I updated, the 320 is now home! My GF's daughter named her Cow Cow lol. I admit, leaving it in my dad's swampy field was not a good idea. I can see the metal is more compromised than before. I have been researching and researching engine swaps. I am planning on selling the 2 520s I have, this will fund the build and I was never truly excited about the idea of using the J series anyways. As far as the idea for the dually, I decided to dually my 620 instead. if anyone is interested. I have a spare L20B, not much info
  5. Just a little photo dump from Import Alliance 2019 Fall Meet, truck is running well. had oil leak from oil pressure sensor. replaced and has been driving fine for months, upcoming is a tilt bed!
  6. Found a 76 4 speed short bed in a junkyard a couple hours away, scored some inner window trim. mine had rotted away and the rubber was completely gone. they're almost $100 for aftermarkets on ebay. I stripped the truck, someone got to it before me though and took the mirrors, grille(had all trim rings) :( and the tailgate. This truck should have been saved and it's terrible it ended up here. Battery tray was solid and floorboards were too besides one small hole in passenger side. Gonna post some pics, if you see anything you want lmk! Truck is in Lebanon, TN at Express Pull n Save if anyone wa
  7. I havent kept up much with every little detail of change like I used to. But I went to IA in Nashville this past weekend. Truck's running really good this summer after a carb adjustment. Seems happier with Valvoline over the Pennzoil I had in it previously. Put spacers on the front so they are flush with the fenders and they look a lot better. Going to have to cut a hole in the bed to fill up fuel. No way to make the one on the dually fender work. I found some center caps for the front and hub caps for the rear, really digging them. Thinking this winter about a dump bed, just throwing out idea
  8. Been a while since I updated. Didn't do much this winter, it was very harsh this year so I didn't have much motivation to wrench in 20 degree weather. I have mounted the other set of dually fenders. I had to mount them a bit higher so it doesn't lay flush on the body lines. However that was my only option as I would have had to cut the fenders up a few inches so the tire didn't hit. Or I could have raised the truck, which wasn't ideal for me. Still very happy with the results and I like the look of these fenders a lot more. I painted them yesterday. I didn't bother fixing the damage to th
  9. think so? it may not look as funky to me once i put the smaller dually fenders on.
  10. Well I made it to the show! Truck drove great, really digging this 5 speed. I think I may put 2" spacers on the front rims so they're flush with the fenders. Looks a bit odd looking from the front not being able to see the rims at all. Considering my winter project to be the KA swap, however considering getting my 320 running. Just don't know yet. I actually bought another set of dually fenders that are actually curved to fit the bed and are a bit smaller, also no tail light holes along with having a gas cap cover. I had to fill the tank before putting these fenders on lol. I plan to paint the
  11. i think i maybe able to get the old speedo cable out without removing the dash bezel. anywho, found out i needed the adapter that attaches the crossmember to the trans, luckily had one on a spare 4 speed out of a 79. Then i went to change the carrier bearing and beating on the shaft with the nut on cause the threads to mess up, got the nut off and then grinded the bad threads off. i need a new nut if anyone has one off a later front portion of the driveshaft. early driveshaft nuts are different, i checked. almost done buttoning up my engine and trans! it's really coming together, sta
  12. yeah, would be hard to steer without it haha! i have a late model cross member already. after i was cleaning up last night i saw the speedo is on the opposite side. only remedy is to get a late model speedo cable? that would suck, not risking my dash bezel for the speedo lol.
  13. engine and trans are in, buttoning them up Thursday. hopefully will install the dually fenders then, ran out of time yesterday. ended up calling my older brother for some assistance mating the trans and dropping it in. i was having a hell of a time doing it solo. because the new trans was longer i had to disconnect my center link to be able to drop the engine in, which is something i never read anyone else had to do. luckily i replaced it last year so it was easy to disconnect. hopefully i'll be ready for IA by Oct 20th.
  14. well I installed new rear main, clutch, pilot bearing. went to install new throughout bearing and saw it needed to be pressed on. the bearing that came with my clutch kit matched the bearing on my early 4 speed but did not match the one on the 5 speed. i ended up ordering a new throughout bearing that included the collar so i didn't need to get it pressed on. also noticed i did not have the clutch fork for the 5 speed, according to part numbers they are different between the 5 speeds and the early 4 speeds. i could rob the fork out of a spare 4 speed out of a 79 I have, but oreillys has them i
  15. was my first go at drum brakes, ever lol. i matched them up to what came out. so i guess the previous guy to change them done them wrong. good eye tho! i asked in the FB group and everyone also suggested the sta-lube. any other suggestion? i havent put it in the trans yet. it's funny, for years i saw 0 datsuns on craigslist. and within a year i've accumulated 7, and found the one in a junkyard. check your FB marketplace!
