    510 rear drum brake adjuster disassembly?

    No, More likly you are topping out on the right hnd ipp pf the square juster, Back of a slight bit and go to the opposite wheel on that axel. Then go back always a good sugetion[ and ] retighten both wheel adjusters.. Kept my RL411 brakes well adjusted for 50 years using this approach.

    Unless ypu are bidding for a USPS RFD mail delivery contract, I see no true reason to burden yourself for the trans pacific conversion of a perfectly servicable vehicle into an amature try to duplicte a japanese domestic configuration. All will end up will end being qa crude approximation of a non attainable vehicle that no on else will be willing to pay more than scrap metal for..

    510 rear drum brake adjuster disassembly?

    I use a quarter inch drive socket set and a quarter inch Allen wrench. Perfect fit and no rounding. Invert the quarter inch socket and slip over the square end of the adjuster then use the Allen wrench to turn the shaft.

    US version started out as the US Army CV2 Caribou. USAF took them over and redesignated them as something I choose not to remember.
  14. Hi Mike, regarding oil pan removal in the RL411, do I need to remove the engine? could you give me some advice before I get started.

    thank you. 

    1. MikeRL411


      Yes, you need to remove the engine [and transmission as a unit per Nisan] The front crossmember does not allow for vertical drop of the oil pan.  Removal is easier if you first remove the cast valve cover due to wiper motor interferrance.

      Thank you! and bummer!

      Further caution if you have the automatic transmission.  There is a socket molded into the lor driver's side of the engine block and a corresponding socket attached to the left front rail.  They are for the complicated automatic transmission shift lever mechanism. and have rubber boots.  Be careful and don't loose the boots.
