    Dual Carb setup

    Hey guys, I've been browsing through the forums for a few days and somehow am either missing, or there isn't, a thread about a good dual carb setup... I'm saving for the replacement of my single, probably stock, carb. On eBay, I've found: Is this a fair price for a kit? Is this a good size? They say in the description that 45's are available. Should I go that route? Is it better to piecemeal a set together? I don't have a lot of questions, but I have enough to keep me from buying. Thanks for any help!

    Hey guys. I'm in need of a single headlight trim ring. In case they're different sizes, which they don't appear to be, I need the far driver side one. Thanks in advance!

    Body parts available?

    i just looked and didn't see a datsun 620, or a nissan 620... i had to use ebay. there was literally only one person offering repro stuff, and when i got the parts, all 4 panels had some form of damage, so i would almost recommend a private seller with oem stuff, and know youll need to fix it up anyways, since the repro stuff didn't even fit right
  6. quick update: got the truck running. swapped out a new distributor (because cheap), coil (poor spark), plugs (looked fouled), plug wires (why not?), cap, rotor, and battery cables (2,0 welding wire). I ddin't try to crank it after that, but asked a coworker to help spray starting fluid. Fired right up, and once it was running, it stays that way for the most part... Seems to run a high idle. Is that normal? Either way, I'm sure it's good enough to get it to the BMV in my name and to a collision shop. Side note/request: If anyone wants to swap a "datsun ohc" for my "nissan ohc" valve cover, please pm me
  7. i had issues posting my own pictures, on my first thread, so i understand the pain of not knowing. Please tell me you're gonna keep, or get a new, star wars sun shade.
  8. thats pretty cool! my goals are to get it running lol. after that, I'll get the damage repaired then I'll save money for an awd electric conversion. bagged. slightly stretched tires. the good stuff. If it works out well, I'm planning to start a business doing full restorations/restomods/conversions/etc
  9. huehuehue. thats the pretty side... forgot to post the picture of the truck that started this *cough* obsession *cough*
  10. Hey guys. Just got into this scene after seeing a picture online of a lowered 620. I'm sure you've all seen it... BUT it is what started me into a journey to get my first Datsun. Bought the truck from a bloke in California. Hit pretty decently on the passenger side, he said it was a running and driving truck, but he was just going to start parting it out. I told him to STOP and I would buy it. I'm all the way in Ohio, so it was going to be costly to ship, but California rust beats Ohio rust any day of the week. $1150 for the truck, $1450 to ship, and $1150 for the parts, all of which were damaged in some way or another -_- I'll attach my pictures, but in the meantime, maybe you guys can give me helpful hints on how to get this "running and driving" truck... running and driving... because it doesn't. I have now replaced the battery (since all used car sales seemingly result in selling a dead battery), the coil, and will be replacing the spark plugs, wires, distributor, cap, and rotor soon. I have at least some fuel coming out of the pump, and I seem to have spark, whether it's enough or not remains to be seen. I'm going to try running it on starting fluid tomorrow. I tried once, but the truck started for just a sec, then stopped (on fluid, and on it's own gas source). Any little ideas would be appreciated.
