    rusty old kc

    Well it took several months of procrastinating and working on other projects but i finally went thru my pile of half dead L-16's and found one that should do the trick. its out of a 70's 510 wagon, it had 65-75 psi on all 4 after sitting for years so i threw a coil and carb on it ran it for 30 seconds and the compression came up to 175 on all four. It needs nome new seals and gaskets and ive got to swap on my 620 pan and mounts but hopefully it will be a good runner. heres a couple pics after i cleaned it up and painted parts
  2. Wow looks killer mike, if your ever down island make sure you stop by
  3. the guy in mill bay has a couple of my old trucks, nothing special just 78 620 kc's, i dont think i have ever seen a 520 in person or even heard of one on the island, there have been a couple 521's around and there was a 320 at a car lot in town for awhile but they wanted $4000 for it, i think saltair marine bought it up tho.anyways if ya end up going with a 620 ive got a shop full of parts lots of spare little hard to find pieces.btw what year 50 do you have? iv got an 83 and 2 84's
  4. Wow i didnt think it had rot like that good to see the old girl getting fixed up, if it was still mine it would likly still be sitting in the alley waiting for someone to work on it

    well the old L-16 has been leaking lots of oil and water and the carb started to crap out so i finally did a compression test to see if it was worth fixing it had 180,150,80,180 and the one with 80 went up to 120 with a bit of oil in it, so i pulled it off the road until i have time to got thru my pile of free L-16's to see if theres a good one. kinda sucks tho im driving my beater s10 blazer it really makes me miss my truck

    Roadsided means your vehicle must pass an inspection, not too many rusty old datsuns pass vehicle inspections as everything has to be in as new conditiion.

    the tear down the previous owner had cut up the rad support for a "custom" rad and it was completely rusted out so i swaped on a 73 support the engine is a stock old l-16 that i got for free years ago, i tossed it in to see if it was a runner so far its been good just needed a front seal back together

    the story behind this truck is that i got a random email for a free 78 king cab with no engine for parts, once i got the truck into my shop i found the steering and suspension had been gone thru and most of the parts were new, so i decided to make this truck my new winter beater
