  1. True, but I was looking for info that isn't specific to 620's. FWIW, I don't have a 620. Well, I could, but I'd be living in a van down by an Oregon river. 😜
  2. Ah-ha! A friend found it: http://www.davidcmurphy.com/olddat/index.htm
  3. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away......🙄 There was a website called The620.com (I think). It had plenty more than just 620 info, i.e. tech info, manuals, etc. IIRC, Mister Klotz took it over (temporarily?), and rehosted it (due to domain expiration?) Does it still exist somewhere? Googling can't find it. Thanks.
  4. Yeah, this weather blowz. Electric and gas bills stupid compared to last year.
  5. So, does that flat on the pin mean there's a groove or flat on the shaft to locate the striking lever?
  6. Don't know if it leaks or not (barely drove the car before tearing it apart in 2014), but now's the time to replace those items whilst the trans is out and apart for rebuilding.
  7. Bingo! That's it. WhyTF did Nissan think it needed to be oddball like that? Guess they figured no one would ever need to replace the o-ring and/or seal. Sheesh. No, I screwed the nut on, and tapped on the nut. Threads are fine. Glad I was smart enough to stop and ask. I actually might have a tool like that though maybe not as heavy duty. Will search tomorrow. Thanks again.
  8. '77-early '79 71B 5-speed Trying to replace o-ring and seal on shifter ears shaft (can't believe official name is striking rod and striking guide). Anyway, you cannot remove it from the tail housing without removing the striking lever, which has a lock pin on the striking rod. Nut and washers removed, but pin isn't moving. Tried giving it a couple of whacks with small hammer.....nada. Figured I ask before screwing this up. I have some pics, but haven't setup a photo hosting account. Thank you Microsoft for killing that functionality in OneDrive. Besides, Mike and Doug can probably answer this in their sleep.
  9. You missed the joke. The 411 Twelve Step Program means having twelve 411's. 410's probably count, too.
  10. Step 2 of the 411 Twelve Step Program. ? Btw, could you resize your pics down a bit?
  11. Nope. Might still use it, but the '67 roadster I'm currently working on came with a 71B 5-speed with the diesel bell.
  12. Ahhhhhh........makes perfect sense. Didn't release that Location: The Big Island meant Australia. For us USA folks, the Big Island normally refers to the island of Hawai'i.

    You have three A15-powered 411 sedans?
  14. Ball joints and tie rod ends available from Rare Parts: https://shop.rareparts.com/search?year=1967&make=NISSAN&model=411
  15. Can you elaborate how you solved the motor mounts issue since they're unobtainium?
  16. Glad to see I'm not the only one who prefers Pontiac Blue to the Datsun engine color.
  17. Rare Parts has 'em: https://shop.rareparts.com/search?year=1967&make=NISSAN&model=411
  18. I'm always amazed as folks figure these things out, but I'm puzzled why you just didn't order a kit from Mike? http://www.bluehandsinc.com/411-disc-brake-kit.html
  19. You should specify if you need the early pre-April 1966 (almost impossible to find), or the later rectangular fixtures. Amazingly, I'm seeing both available right now on eBay.
  20. Wish I could post pics, but seems like all image hosting sites require money these days. Besides, DatzenMike probably has these images burned into his brain. :lol: I have two FS5W71 5-speed transmissions. One came with my '67 1600 roadster. History on this is unknown. I believe this transmission originally came in a '79 620 diesel pickup because: Shorter shifter ears Speedo drive retaining screw at 12 o'clock Steel forks Servo 5th gear Main nut is left-hand thread (DQ Vol 11 Issue 2 states nut changed from RH to LH in 4/79). Starter housing on left side. AFAIK, only roadsters and diesels had them on the left. I bought the other 71B at Canby 2009. It came out of an '83 280ZX: Tall shifter ears Speedo drive retaining screw at 6 o'clock. The earlier trans is completely dismantled for a rebuild; the later trans mostly apart. Questions: 1. The earlier trans forks are steel (cast?); the latter aluminum. Are they interchangeable? Any advantage of one over the other? Anyone have good part numbers that aren't NLA, or know where to buy new 1-2 and 3-4 forks? 2. The earlier trans has a 23-tooth reverse idler key with a chipped tooth. Found a thread from 2008 in the Nissan Diesels forum that mentions the reverse idler gear came in 21T, 22T, and 23T. http://nissandiesel.dyndns.org/viewtopic.php?t=1763 Haven't contacted the various transmission parts sellers (Transmission Exchange, Drivetrain.com, Cobra, etc.) yet. Googling finds 21T and 22T, but no 23T. CarPartsManual Online for the 620 shows one part number (32282-E9000) without tooth count, and it's NLA. Can you substitute the easily found 21T or 22T for the 23T? Thanks,
  21. Next time, I highly recommend plugging those intake manifold openings before drilling. Hope you vacuumed the $h!t out of 'em before bolting on the manifold.
  22. Steve, In the post before yours, Tana mentioned she had sold her 410 last year (2015). I believe it's new home is in Canada. Tana no longer has any Datsun vehicles although she still comes across parts to sell from her dwindling inventory.
  23. Nice hijack, but, no. Almost all 410/411 brake parts are unobtanium.
