  1. Like I mentioned Mike was just a crazy thought. I’ve done nothing to hack up this truck. Wondered if it had been done, if it could work, was there any benefit if it had worked for someone. days when my cancer has me down I watch the shows and wonder what could be done to make it unique without butchering it. as alway thanks Mike
  2. Calm down , one i was wondering if it could be done and if it would work. He’s 13 and was asking about bagging it. I’m happy he’s even interested in this old truck to work on it with me. Get his hands dirty and learn more then video games.
  3. I was just wondering if something like this would work. Think you could easily adjust ride height with the coil overs. 4 links would hang down so far on stock frame and 3link would require fuel tank being moved. Didn’t think about axel wrap. Like I said when I can’t work on the truck I think of nutty stuff, might be the 13 meds a day I take for my cancer.😁. Anyhow thanks for the input y’all.
  4. Thank you, I’ve got all new ball joints and look to be the same as what in on the truck spindles now. Just want to be able to get new rotors, seals, and calipers or kits
  5. On days I’m not up to working I think of stuff and really shouldn’t lol. My grandson asked me about bagging the truck and there’s no money I pops budget for that. But got me thinking back in the old gasser days some used half leaves on the front. Wonder what would happened if you cut a set of leaf springs say 3” beyond the the perch mounts. Drilled another hole to bolt the springs together a second time for safety. Used a panard bar to keep rear from walking side to side and coil overs for height adjustment and rebound. Think it would work and also help handling? Just crazy thoughts 😵‍💫
  6. I bought used spindle and brake assemblies back when I first got the truck wanting to go with bigger brakes. Well a year later and health set back I’ve just got them out to rebuild and can’t remember the year of the brakes. They’re Frontier single piston and only numbers on rotor is 210467-C and WF2. Want to get new rotors and calipers kits. any help out there?
  7. Evening all. Guy I got the 620 is bugging me about getting the rest of the parts that came in our deal. Is there any market for the 4 speed trans for these trucks, about 7 doors compete with glass and two more motors, two differentials one with bad gears. And a crap load of small stuff I need to go through. Any idea what any of the trans and motors are worth if anything cause they’ve all been sitting for years. Could use some cash for this project.
  8. Search Dorman 576807, on Rock auto. Tank will be here Tuesday from Amazon. They mis priced it or something cause it’s showing 169.99 now. When I ordered it , it said one left. After ordering it I looked again making sure I ordered the right thing and now it says temp out of stock.
  9. Well think I got a heck of a deal on new gas tank. Googled the part number and one of the places was Amazon so I clicked on it to see and bought it $37.10 with free shipping!!!!!!!! Looks identical except 1/4”fitting next to filler is straight not 90 degree. 720 pickup tank
  10. Got ya , miss read your advice. Thanks as always
  11. This tank mounts to the frame, but none of it goes under the cab. It’s all under the bed, it a like 12.7 gal tank
  12. Had a good couple of days where my caner meds didn’t have me dragging. Went to work on the truck to find holes in the fuel tank. Will a 720 fuel tank work in a1979 Kingcab . Looking at the 13 gal tank on Rockauto parts. Looks right except the line connection under the fill tube is straight and not a 90 degree. Second, decided to work on the brakes and disconnected the old wheel cylinders to push through new fluid to clean the lines, no go, found crap that looks like fish eggs under the screen in master cyl. Ordering new, so inspecting the rest of the brake system what is the assembly under the cab on the passenger side frame about where the the seat would be in the cab. proportioning valve????
  13. Thanks, to bad they didn’t get my last name right but oh well not the first time that’s happened lol
