1978 Datsun 620 DLX KC-- Let the jealousy Commence

Recommended Posts

Before i go into details, Ill give you some pictures of how i found her, just to wet your whistle. Dipping the tip, per se.

My Datsun addiction has been more rampant than ever. Couple months ago I picked up this this nasty clean 510 wagon:

And as of two weeks ago i'm the proud owner of another 78' 620 DLX 5 spd. with dealer A/C.

 

As some of you know i already have one identical to this new one, year and all. 

 

 

Unfortunately I got her with a slight tick, thinking it was valve clearance issues. Out of nowhere this loud tick turned into an even louder clatter. I quickly shut it down and dissembled the motor to find Cyl. 1 intake valve seat fell out.

Not to worry, a nice head rebuild and the truck runs like a sewing machine. Drove it 100 miles to the IE Datsun meet last weekend.
