New 320 Owner, hello!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recently acquired a 65 L320 in pretty great shape and have already found this forum an excellent resource for info.

I wanted to introduce myself and say thanks for all the helpful stuff I've read on here that helped me buy the right one and give me a good idea of what to expect when rebuilding certain parts.


I'm currently rebuilding the carb and wondering if anyone has a Nikki accelerator pump for a 320? Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Very nice truck.  Looks like you've got a nice 65 there.  Is it a column shift or floor shift?  

It is really difficult to find a replacement mechanical fuel pump but you should be able to use a fuel pump from a J-series engine or even an L-series if you can find one new, but you have to swap over the lever arm from your existing pump onto the newer pump in order to make it work.

Thanks all, will post more pictures soon. It is a floor shift.  


p.s. sorry about that, I will make a formal WTB post in classified section looking for the carb accelerator pump/plunger.  

Still figuring this forum thing out. Thanks again!

Looks like Roland's truck?


Kyler, I believe I saw a carb kit with the pump you're looking for on eBay being sold by MLP Carb out of Australia.  As far as I remember they were selling for around $50 for the whole kit plus shipping to the US.


You can also try Ted Heaton, he might have something.

Thanks all, yep I bought this off of Roland up here in Seattle. Really nice guy, gave me a bunch of extra parts, (except a spare carb :) ) He mentioned I should try and join NWDE up here, If I can shift my work schedule around I'm going to try and make the next meeting.

Rowland did a nice job with that truck.  I saw it when he first started working on it.  He is a good, trusty kind of guy.  Please come to our NWDE meeting this Sunday if you can.  Located at the Round Table Pizza in Renton,on 180th street right east of Ikea.
