    Power steering reservoir

    My 720 has been my daily driver for 10 years now. The one part that has broken multiple times is the hard line coming off the power steering reservoir. I Finally just welded the hard line back on the reservoir. Holding good no leaks. Anyway a quick easy fix ideal for anyone with the same issue.

    Gas/brake pedals

    Easy solution, I keep a running shoe that I haven’t worn for 15 years in the truck. I just change the one shoe when I’m driving. So much more comfortable and pleasurable driving without fighting the pedals..

    Gas/brake pedals

    Now that I’m driving my 620 more I need to do something with the pedal spacing. I have big feet size 14 xx wide.. the pedals are to close, i assume my only option is to pull the pedal box out and heat and bend pedals apart. I don’t have this problem in my 720 or my 240’s .. any suggestions ? Rex

    78 kingcab

    its a good day .. Another Datsun truck passed the California smog check.. I bought this truck last week locally here in San diego.. Adjusted timing, changed oil, new plugs,cap,wires and adjusted the valves. Only smog part missing was the exhaust manifold heat shield that the carburator preheat pipe attaches too. Took the heat shield off a cracked manifold from my 720 and made it work... You see a big white guy driving a orange kingcab in east county its me.. I'm keeping this truck running no huge projects that take way to long to finish..

    Chinese exhaust manifold

    I can see why you would ask that.. This exhaust manifold from China via eBay is the 2nd one I've gone through in 4 years. The original nissan manifold lasted 29 years.. The ones made in China last 2 years .. I'm speaking in regards to the quality of the manifolds sold on eBay for our trucks.. I'll keep pulling manifolds at pick your part and ecology until I find a uncracked one.

    Chinese exhaust manifold

    Racerx, that was my first thought.I've pulled at least 5 manifolds this year and everyone of them had the same cracking on the back side of the manifold. Bummer !!

    Chinese exhaust manifold

    After 10 years of daily driving I had to be towed home for the first time.. One of the plugs on my manifold worked its way off. I heard the exhaust leak and traffic was bad with no shoulder at that part of the freeway.so after 10 minutes of driving I pull over and my distributator cap is half melted. If you have one of those eBay manifolds that have the 2 plugs in them for the variations of our egr configurations. Check those threaten plugs they do work there way loose..

    Ignition module wires

    I replaced my ignition module a few weeks ago and had noticed the wires from the module were chaffing against the bottom of the rotator.. Anyway cleaned everything up and all was good for a few weeks until this morning. The red wire caught the rotator and what a mess of wire strands.. I learned the hard way make sure the wires from the ignition module are tight and tucked in.

    '85 720 with No Brake Lights

    last time my brake lights went out I found the rubber plug that attaches to the brake pedal on the floor. Look at your brake pedal is the rubber pad still attached to the pedal ? Is the pad still in one piece? I had a pad break in 1/2 on a 240z once and the brake switch couldnt make contact with the pad. Good luck

    converting to manual hubs?

    I recently installed warren hubs on my truck, no conversion kit was required. 100% bolt on..
  14. I pulled the tranny from the bottom, it's tight and getting the transmission back in took a whole day. if you do drop the tranny do yourself a favor and lower the differential and remove the exhaust do give yourself room. Good luck
  15. my condolences mike.. It's never easy losing a loyal, loving pet. I'm sure you gave him a great life full of love and chew toys. Rex
