    when you get new ones keep the one one to measure the shaft length. Most are too long and youll engage too soon putting pressure on the pedal. Most have to be cut down. Youll see it when you install.  I would but 2 set of these chines made master as hey don't last long at all. maybe 5 yrs on  daily driver

     

    Would this cause the popping/clicking/hanging up feeling I get when I'm disengaging the clutch? It's fine going in, but when I let it out, it's like it hits a burr or something, then click/pops out

  2. If it makes you feel better, I bought my truck for $1100, spent $4000 to get it here from California, then spent another couple hundred on ignition parts and a battery (since every used car ever comes with a shot battery), and then another $3000 to do body work (which looks like crap) and reupholster the seat. Let's not talk about buying panels that are garbage, from Greece, or the wheel and tires.

     

    Basically, I will NEVER get what I paid for this truck, back. I'll never sell it, and I love it to death. I just try not to think about the money.

    @5t341tH any brands you'd recommend? I've been looking at the Centric ones on Amazon.

     

    I've got luk brand on mine I think. Just make sure to get one that has the exact same position for the hard lines. I had to take one back off because I didn't realize it was wrong. Of course, it likely because at the time, I thought my truck was a 74 instead of 76...

     

    Still! Make positive before you waste the time waiting.

    Like you can't see the picture? I am new to this forum host and it was a bit of a pain to post a picture. It shows up for me when I open the thread...

     

     

    Correct. Looks like a broken link. I like to use imgbb for hosting. Might want to try that.

    Please read EDIT to initial posting regarding 14x5 rims and 205/75r14 tires.  The guys are Walmart Auto discovered this offset problem.

     

    I think I'm done with this.  While I would like wide low profile tires to lower and make handling better, rubbing appears to be problematic AND I don't need deeper "effective" final drive ratio.  While I have  5-spd to put in (waiting for clutch to wear out), I'd be giving the OD back with low profile tires.  I think the 205/75's are probably about as tall as I'd want to go.

     

    Some tall narrow low profile 17 or 18 might work, but what are the odds of Narrow?

     

    Have you looked at my pictures in the other latest wheel/spacers thread? I'm running 15x10 wheels with big wide tires and have no issues with rubbing. You just have to get the right offset wheel and you should be fine.

    So will this topic be the part of the internet we need to visit for any 620 parts that needs te be reproduced? I'd love to get the files needed to print some stuff because i live in the Netherlands and parts are hard to come by. I can have parts printed over here so just the files would be very helpful. Clamshell, gauge bezel, etc.

     

    Possibly. I know I'll be posting in here with anything I want to announce. I also started an instagram for my "business". @featherlight.industries

     

    Last night, I posted my fender emblems on thingiverse. My issue will likely be that I'm running out of stuff that's easily made and even less that are easily printed. The dash has a curvature to it, and therefore would likely need someone to scan it, fix mesh issues, the cut it up for easiest printing. The results would be worth it, but I just don't have that skill.

     

    If anyone wants me to MAKE a part for any vehicle, they'd need to send me a message with pictures of it so I can check it out and see if I could do it or not. I'm definitely not opposed to getting parts and modelling them for mostly free.

    @EDM620Once we get the chassis done with the suspension and brake upgrades, we are hoping to have a final "look" decided on.

     

    If you're interested in different emblems, I'll be posting pictures of what I've designed and 3d printed in the next week on Instagram.

     

    I'd be willing to send you a set as a gift/tester

     Anyway, whenever it happens I can measure and make a pattern if it's still needed at that time. 

     

    For sure! Looks like EDM has a king cab anyways, so if yours is a standard, that gets me what I'm after.

  9. So I haven't seen anything from Ohio since I got my truck. Here's a guy I saw at the memorial day fish fry and car show last year in lithopolis.

    Hopefully more Datsun guys surface in Ohio. Haven't seen a single one on the road since.

    I have a replacement headliner for my KC (yup the gold thread version) that I could draw up a pattern if that'll help

     

    That might be a good idea in general. When the next poor sucker searches for headliner pattern in here and only sees this single thread, they'll be ecstatic!

  11. Hey guys. Does anyone have a pattern for a headliner? I'm looking for a standard cab, not king. Mine is missing chunks, so I figured I'd go get a cheap one to make a pattern, but it appears the sellers on eBay have inlaid solid gold fibers into the material. That's all I can assume at least, being that every one of them is ~$150+ I got a brand new one for my 1966 Mustang, and I'm fairly certain it only cost me about $40. It's in the car and looks awesome too, so no clue how a smaller piece of material can cost almost 5x the price.

     

    For those curious, I'd like to make my own out of other material not commonly used (tweed).

    It looks like someone JB welded the valve cover or something. I found coked oil on some crusty orange crap. There were chunks in under the cam as well. I think I got them all. I scraped some loose bits off of the cover as well. It looks like it was along the side of the plate that screws in on the underside of the cover. You can see it on the left of the pic below. I hope this doesn't turn into it's own issue.

    That's it for now. 

     

    I think this is factory. I just took a valve cover in to be powder coated and noticed mine also had what appeared to be epoxy or something along the seams. You can't even see screws on mine, with how much orangey crap is on it.
