    My first project!!!

    The tach was the easy part that day it just plugs right in. Changing the steering box and column sucked

    Lol it was way easier than buying raffle tickets and hoping I would win it
  4. Perfect I will put it somewhere safe lol
  5. hopefully this is something simple the truck is a 73 620 short box, i believe the booster is stock the master is out of a 79 510. as soon as the truck fires the pedal slowly moves downward with out being pushed at all, ive never had to mess with a 620 booster before so im not sure where to start. thanx

    My first project!!!

    well after sitting for 2 years a fresh battery and some gas the truck fired right up, slapped the new/used tires on and got a quick alignment (toed way out last time it was on the road) and the truck was good to go, only issue was the shifter cross pin fell out some how on the drive home.
  10. that would be awesome, when are you heading to canby?
  11. any chance you want to part with the a/c bracket? or maybe let me borrow it to compare to my z-24 bracket?

    1980 720 4x4

    Double checked and I only have the 2 rear most 620 crossmember the rest are 80 720 4x4 and there is nothing left of the 720 hardware. I then looked again at Mikes old truck and found the 620 hardware welded to a custom crossmember, so hopefully I can source new cables for the 620 then fab a new crossmember to mount them to.

    1980 720 4x4

    Ok hopefully the new 620 front cable comes in and maybe I can still order rear cables. Which section is longer between the short and long box 620s? I have a longbox Datsun trailer that still has intact rear cables they might be usable

    1980 720 4x4

    i have absolutely no ebrake hardware from the original 1980 4x4 (it came that way) and all of the 73 hardware was seized so it was stripped from the 73's frame, there is nothing left bolted to the crossmember. all thats left is the stock 73 dash pull lever and some random used rear cables from an 81. I may have misunderstood but i thought you indicated the 73 was a simpler set up than the later ebrake system.

    1980 720 4x4

    well i may have been wrong about the local parts store the had a listing for the 73 front cable and nothing for the 80 so hopefully on monday they call to say the can get me the 73 620 cable. im going to have to go crawl around and see what crossmembers have been used, i didnt do the frame work my self i traded wiring work with a buddy.

    1980 720 4x4

    i thought about robbing parts from your old truck but the brackets are welded to a cross member and wouldn't they be too long?

    1980 720 4x4

    ok i had a feeling this was going to be a challenge all the original 620 hardware was rusted solid and is long gone except the pull lever in the cab and the 720 didnt come with any ebrake hardware the po had rigged up a manual hydraulic shut off made out of a plumbing valve lol.

    1980 720 4x4

    ok does anyone know anything about ebrake cable interchangeability? the cab and back half is a 73 620 the front of the frame and rear axel are 80 720 4x4 both shortbox. i have rear ebrake cables from an 81 2wd im hoping to use and somehow i dont seem to have any front cables at all. i havent asked at the local parts store yet but im willing to bet 73 parts are nla, but im hoping maybe 720 or d21 cables will work and be available. thanks

    1980 720 4x4

    ok do the tcase speedo drives interchange with the standard transmission speedo drives? then i could just swap the one from the original tcase into the new transmission and hope for the best. its a short box btw

    1980 720 4x4

    im slowly assembling my 73/80 4x4 and need to know a couple things are the divorced 720 tcases a 1 to 1 ratio when in high range? and what is the most likely ratio for the rear diff? it is a L20b truck and had a 4 speed when i tore it apart and i dont have the factory engine bay tag (had fake vins from an 82) i dont have a speedo cable long enough to reach the tcase and the trans im using has a speedo out put so im hoping to use it and have a decently accurate speedo in hight range. thanks
  21. lol to be honest its going to be dragged beside the building to sit and wait til life allows me to work on it. i do have another 78 or 79 kc to part out into this one tho
  22. yep mine was a complete truck when Vangaurd bought it they even made use of the spare box
