Pulling my L320 from mothballs

Recommended Posts

Then you need both rear cables, but if they still work use them till they break.

I bought these off that guy's eBay store:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-320-Original-Sun-Visors/152845034501?hash=item2396462405:g:iPMAAOSwg8taRUqE

 

Are they stock 320? The contour of the chrome mounts fit the contour of where they attach on my 320 above the windshield but the existing hole pattern above my windshield is different .

YES, Stock 320 sun visors, Pictures show a plain plastic visor that mounts differently on the early 320 trucks.

I snagged a really nice pair of sunvisors on Ebay about three years ago and plugged them into 'Mighty Mouse'. Here's a pic of the right one. Note the two extra holes with a screw in them. My guess is that this is where a previous visor was mounted. MM is cowl-tagged and titled 1964 but has 1963 build characteristics.

Roll the window down and stick your head out the side.

 

320's are so small you can do either side from the drivers seat.

Pulled off the e-brake cables. The passenger side is stuck, so the brake was never releasing and that is why the passenger side brakes work like shit. It was probably stiff before and then really stuck when the truck sat

Both cables

Truck bit me, but it didn’t break skin so it was just a love bite

I am thinking that I may just cut off the ends and replace the cable cover, then get some new cable stops and crimp them on like these ones are done.

 

For now, off to work

Put the stuck cable in a vise and see if you can work the cable loose, I have done this several times, don't crush it in the vise.

I generally put the end of the cable in the vise and pull on the cable outer sleeve, then put the other end in the vise and pull the other way.
