    From France to USA : help please!

    I found some but the price was way too high. 3 or 4 times the price in USA. I'll consider import u-bolts to sell them in France 🙂

    I have measured : A = 0.5" B = 3-1/8" (measured under the axle but if I measure at the ending of the bolt, it's more 3,54", probably because they are bended) C = 10" My blocks are 3" so I only need C = 7" or 6-1/2 if I consider the useless thread that should have been cut. Consequently I have to choose between: 1/2 X 3-1/8 X 6-3/4R 16 Round U-bolt and 1/2 X 3-1/8 X 7-3/4R 18 Round U-bolt

    Alarm and fuse box

    I removed the module and the car is starting normally. I will try to remove all the wires but it will probably be painfull. Nevertheless it's nice to not be afraid each time I plug the battery on when the siren starts in my ears!!!

    Yes I know there's no u-bolt. I was planning to use the one I already have. But you're right, 2" less will probably not be enough. I'll measure my u bolts tomorrow and I will order some u-bolts from stengelbros.net. The only question is which length should I take? I'll measure my u bolts and probably remove the block length and the extra-length that should have been cut by the previous owner. It should give me the correct length or a little bit more. Thank you again for taking time to help me.

    I've finally found two 1" blocks: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Allstar-Performance-ALL56130-Lowering-Block-1-Drop-Rear-2-50-Wide-Universal-Al/150775507244 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevy-GMC-S10-S15-Sonoma-Blazer-Jimmy-1-Drop-BLOCK-Kit-LOWERING-BLOCKS/262482759546

    Are you saying that there's no difference between lowering blocks ? It is allways the same thing ? It doesn't depend of the car brand or model ? I've found this : 5U-159R 1/2 X 3-1/8 X 8-3/4R 20 Round U-bolt with nuts and washers

    Ok, I'm tired of searching u-bolts in France (few available and never the good size). I'm ready to buy in USA. Could someone give me the stock size of 620's u-bolts or a 1" lowering kit suitable for my 77 620 (part number 55247-B9800) ?

    Replacing weather strip on 620 doors.

    I need to replace the frontshield weatherstrip. Are you happy with the rockauto product ? Price is interesting even with the shipping rate to France ($24). It's cheaper than a shop I've found in Portugal.

    Nice website, prices seems interesting and it's the first time I see a logical way to classify the products by size. Thank you.

    Fuel Filter part number

    Thank you very much for the website! I saw it once or two times but had completely forgotten it ! I was able to buy a fuel filter with the reference.

    Hello, Could someone give me the Nissan part number for the 77 620's fuel filter ? Thank you, oukippy

    Thank you very much for your help. I agree that it's probably 3 flat leafs. Yes I have 3" blocks that I'll remove. Obviously the u-bolt thread is too short to just remove the block and keep the bolts. I'm trying to find shorter u-bolt but it's not easy here. If I searched well, it should be 3.6" from center of the bolt to center of the bolt and 0.5" for bolt thread width. Another solution would be to replace the block with a 1 inch. I could have found it on ebay.co.uk but I don't know if it will work with the Datsun leaf springs as it is sold for Ford cars: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-or-25mm-Ford-Leafspring-Lowering-Block-Kit-GE20-GRAYSTON-QUALITY/391890413419?epid=621558699&hash=item5b3e7d276b:g:ML0AAOSwicZZv9of

    Alarm and fuse box

    I'll give a closer look tomorrow. Now it's time to see my friends playing handball (I was supposed to play too but as you can see, my finger decided to try to bend in the wrong way yesterday). Thank you again for your help !

    Alarm and fuse box

    Thank you very much. It will be my first thing to do. After that I'll remove the wires for good (I hope they did the plugins in a professional way). Now I just need to find where are going the green and red wires in the fuse box.

    I suppose it is the connector on the left ? Nothing plugged here !
