    Window register

    On my 86 720, standard cab. The window started being difficult...had to crank, window would just drop unexpectedly. I finally took it apart. The shaft that the door handle goes on, on the back side, it is wallowed out. Which allows the shaft to wander around. I have a parts truck, but I havent seen this part yet. Does anybody know of a source for this part? I was looking at rockauto. They don't have it. But, I stumbled on to seat covers $140-190 sized to fit our 720s. I ordered one. Ill let you know.
  2. car-part.com If that fails, Phils in hotchkiss, CO has some, and they may ship
  3. When was the trainwreck? Pretty good piloting to land on that sub like dat. ; ]
  4. I am guessing, just guessing that the .32 and .380 would be on a dif frame.
  5. No, but I bet that it is standard Nissan. Pull the switch and take it down to a TrueValue or Ace or Napa, they will have it
  6. That Bersa is a good design....I have no idea of the steel or quality. If I remember right....007 used a .32 acp not a .380
  7. BTW, 20% coupon on the Autozone website for a $147 switch , right now. PN sw1687
  8. I did that again last night....it lasted under a minute. I did it again this am. We'll see. I am etiher going to Jerry-Rig it, or buy a switch from Autozone. Anybody know....does King-Cab=Power-Steering which equals Tilt-Wheel (my truck).
  9. Keep in mind, we are talking about a disease that has an over 99% recovery rate. Have you had Covid? If so, you have the anti-bodies in you. If those anti-bodies don't work, then why would you get fake, dangerous anti-bodies (all medical procedures have a risk/side-affect). I personally know 3 persons that have dies from Covid....and heard of 2 that have died from the vaccine, at the gun-store. Talking to a lady last night...her daughter was gonna get it, and heard of somebody that had a reaction to it, then she was inline to get the shot, and a guy in front of her, got the shot, and pretty much fell over dead, right there (the paramedics could not revive him). BTW, there is a gubment website that shows the Covid shot deaths on it....
  10. Well, the lights worked for a few days. Today, I am driving and smell something overheating....then I see smoke. It is coming from the crack, between steering wheel and the stuff on the column....then the lights stopped working again. I still have the dome light. GRRRRRR!!!
  11. It looks like you need a floor boot. I have no idea of where you'd get one.
  12. Welllllll, I pressurized the cooling system. It has a bad waterpump....an AC Delco Professional Grade pump that has been on for only 11 months. We'll see how rockauto handles it. I just ordered an Aisin WP.
  13. I've got a '96 Villager...a rebadged Quest, that is using antifreeze. I thought that it was a headgasket. But, today I used a Block-Testor on it, nothing (one of those guizmos that you push down on the radiator and it is supposed to change colors if hydro-carbons are present....no color change). There is no water on the ground and I can't find any leakage around the motor and/or radiator and no smell of leakage and no antifreeze in the oil and no oil in the water. This makes me wonder...does a 3.0 have any places, in the intake, that could possibly leak coolant in to the intake and then burn it. Any other possibilities?
  14. I'll re-read your posts later tonight. I was working on it today. The switch.....grrrrrr. Working w/a test light, I had voltage going in, but nothing coming out of the switch. I used Radio Shack Corrosion Coating on the back of it. The can says that it cleans also. We'll see if I gained anything on my headlights. My switch is really marginal, but I can't find one to replace it with. The switch is fairly complex as this is one circuit, there is also the low-beam and high=beam circuit (2 of em). I have fooled w/the switch before. I had the inside light...I think. The dolly lights....bad ground....about 3" of bad wire. in the plug, in the ground.
  15. There is some guys on the net (tubers) milling a head w/emery cloth glued down to glass. That will work. If you use sealant, it doesn't have to be be real flat.
  16. I hooked up a tow-dolly to the 720 yesterday and the dolly's lights were acting funny. I didn't have all the lights, and when I hit the brakes, some of em came on, and some of em went away. Tonight, I go to fix it, and I notice that I lost parking, tail, and dash lights....And the rear lights are still messed up. I chase the lights down to a bad ground. There was about 2" of bad wire in the ground wire. I splice in a new wire and still nothing....nothing on the PU that is. The dolly appears to be acting fine....w/o tail-lights. It has turn and brake-lights and they seem to work fine. Neither one has tail-lights. Oh, I am pretty sure that when I started, I had no brake lights either. When I turn on the Hazards and Turn Signals, the bulbs flash just fine. So, here is my theory....the dolly's lights were grounding back in to the truck's wiring, somewhere, and that has screwed something up. The PU's lights...(dash, parking and tail) where do they ground? Through the switch? Do you have any ideas? I pulled the fuse...the top is hot. When I plug in the fuse and probe the bottom, it is hot too (the fuse is fine).
  17. How tall is your adapter? There are some that are like 1/2" thick, and others that are, like, 1 1/2" tall. The tall ones are Aluminum. The short ones may be pot metal. I always like the tall ones. Where was it leaking? Adapter to Manifold or Adapter to carb. Have you seen a cause? As mentioned, use a straight edge and look for warpage. Silicone works wonders... and it does it on things besides breasts. No to Lock-Tite....but I'd use Lock-Washers....although they aren't really needed. But, I bet the Hitachi had them.
  18. I have heard of APs that use fuelers in bikinis in order to get the "military" stuff that passes thru....a CH47 pilot told me about 1st.
  19. Huh....6 lugs have a poor selection. What are you trying to do? There is a large selection of 15" 6 lugs out there.
  20. Where in colorado? I know where there is one sitting on a corner being used as a billboard. The kids have busted the glass on it. Do a map search on the intersection of 29 Rd & Unaweep Ave, Grand Junction, CO 81503 Then, Spin the picture around till you see the truck. Okagawa farms/produce
  21. Not sure if the filter has an anti-drain back. I doubt the light is bad as the timing chain stops clattering when the light goes out. Oil level is fine. It does it on a fresh oil change...w/5 qts in it..
  22. I have a Z24 w/175K on it. IT takes forever (3-5 secs?) to switch the light off. If I was to change pumps, which one would be duh one to use?

    window crank/lever

    On my 86 720...the window has been acting funny for awhile. At 1st, it would go down, say, a half turn, then if you went up, and back down, after a revolution or so, of the handle, it would go at the way down. Then, I went crazy w/a red straw, on top of an aerosol can. I sprayed o everything that looked dry and needy. Now, it spins real easy. But, now it jumps/slips, like the teeth are jumping out of place. Sometimes, when I crank it all the way up, it jumps down, and the handle doesn't move, and then it cranks back up. Is there anything in there that could cause this?
  24. Phil's in Hotchkiss has a 4x4 standard cab 720. He also has some other 720s. They all didn't have motors and I don't remember about the drivelines....if yours is not saveable.

    Sliding Window

    I picked up a sliding rear window for my 86 720. But, it doesnt fit. The box was marked, but now it is gone. It said, something like 79 (or 80)-83. Got any idea what it fits?
