Meet ReddRooster a 1977 automatic kingcab 620.


Redd was given to me by c6flstfjock because he had spent enough money trying to get Redd's brakes to work ($750 on all new components and it still has serious brake fade) and it still needs a carburetor rebuild to pass smog.


Easy fixes by Ratsun standards I'm sure... :rofl:


enough of the intro here's some pics, engine shots to be posted later.

I think when the "professional" mechanic replaced the MC he failed to properly bench bleed it, or he didn't set the throw on the MC plunger. We shall see, I haven't even popped the hood yet, it could have some uber-rare JDM replacement engine... maybe even a GILKEN HEAD!  :w00t:  :frantics:

that filter is exactly what you think it is a filter for the smog pump im willing to bet that the numbers are stamped there just can be seen under all the grime build up
