1975 620

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Datsun members. My name is Ian and I live in California. I recently picked up a Datsun from a older gentleman for $1,200. To me I don't think I paid to much for something that is reliable for the most part. My only problem right now is the carburetor, but other than that the truck drives great. I am currently replacing the HCD 340 (right name for that carb?) and slappin a weber on it. I will post some pics of the asap.

If going weber go the 38/38.  You will be more happy with it in the long run

$1200 is cheap.

 

Hitachi DCH340 is a good carb, unless it is worn out. Check the throttle shafts for play. If its worn out, a remanufactured one is about $200.

 

Weber 32/36 is almost as big, and a brand new one won't have any problems. For more performance get the 38/38. Neither are CAL emissions legal.

I use a $50 laptop with XP -- it works well with Ratsun and Photobucket. Use a non-Microsoft anti-malware program and help secure it with a router firewall.

Those 620s were designed to cruise with the USA 75mph speed limits. No worries.

Nice truck. Good find not a bad price for $1200 What are you plans for her?

interior wise I would like to find the original interior (preferably clean) and install that. its just mainly that rubber floor and center console piece or whatever.

 

exterior wise im going to keep the paint original as much. I enjoy the yellow and it makes it stick out. mainly I would like to keep it stock.also if you hit a yellow you would have to be blind.

 

engine wise im not going replace anything except the essential; oil, coolant, spark plugs, ect. I have confidence that this engine will last a very long time as long as I don't abuse it lol. but when the time comes to overhaul the engine I would like to put fancy stuff in it like roller rockers (if possible).
