A bit of talk going on in the truck section on my new KC. Thought I would start a new thread here to keep the added threads to a min.
Heres a few shots that aren't in the other.

Fairly complete all brown interior. I do have the tray.

Steriod: This is the chalky crap I was talking about. This is the worst spot.

Not to sure what to do here as Steriod says these are RARE and hard to get hold of. Color is faded BAD!!

Anyone have an extra light cover for this?

As you can see, someone did a little HACK job on the wiring. The second photo shows a pic of the cluster of relays. Are these ALL correct and which one is missing. There appears to be a spot for one more under the one on the left (closest to the headlight).

Starting from the Right (windshield side) I BELIEVE it goes; Ign relay, Horn relay, then it should be a 4 pin plug for the Choke relay, and then ?????

Where should my wiring be plugged into? The wiring on the 620 site just isn't clear to me. But, I'm not an electician either.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

It does look Orange, but, it's actually a butterscotch color. I want to turn it into my new daily driver. I love my '76, it's just too damn small for me 6'1".

Having a tuff time getting it to run. It gets power to both sides of the coil with the key at the on possition. Has the matchbox dist. Any thoughts?

verify spark
replace plugs anyway
spray a little starting fluid in there (if it fires, then it was a fuel issue)
Thank you Ted!

The negative side of the coil should only get flashes of power as you turn over the motor. This is the signal for the coil to fire.

If there is constant power to the negative side when your turning it over then your module may be toast.

Check that, then go through the list Bleach gave ya :)

Thanks for the ideas.

I didn't think both sides of the coil should have full power with just the key in the "ON" position. The PO did some fansy wiring and I suspect that is part of the problem. If you guys could take a look at the above pictures and tell me what, if anything, is missing that would be cool. I think I am missing a relay and that the one on the left is not correct.

Thoughts?

Went and took another look at the other KC ('78) the guy had. It DEFINITELY has a 5 speed. The sticker on the tailgate is still readable through the crappy rattle can paint job and I CHECKED the pattern for sure!! It also has an unmolested wiring harness for the engine. It appears to have a mix-match interior. Black dash but everything else seems to be brown. Even has the corner pieces and back for the KC in brown. SWEET!! Drivers floor was absolutely shot but well worth the $50.00. :D
I'll post a few pictures of my new parts truck later this weekend.

Thanks for all the feedback on my projects. You guys are all a lot of help.

How many 620's does it take to get a nice driver?

As, many as it takes. :D

I ran 225/45/18
I was actually hoping you did not get the 2005+ Frontier wheels as their six lug pattern changed spacing.

Did some MORE swapping of parts tonight. Finally go the other KC home and have torn the living shit out of it. Used the wiring harness from it and the good KC to make one good one. Got the relays all dialed in. Working on getting the 5spd. out of the shit bucket to put in my good truck. The back panel and both side panels for the KC were in tact and in good shape. And brown no less. The inst. panel was perfect! Kept the slider in the back window. Nicely tinted and in good shape as well. Stole a bunch of parts in the doors to get the other one in good shape. Now BOTH doors close and have windows.

I have been looking at all the pictures that Bee posted in the 620 threads. There was one truck in particular that had a "75? grill in a KC. Looked bitch'n. I have been thinking of doing the same thing. Well, I finally did it tonight. I couldn't bring myself to just throwing the crappy looking '78 grill in my nice daily, so, I gave it a shot with some Krylon Fushion. I used the "Nickle Shimmer" color. Damn does it ever look good. I'll try to remember to post some pics tomorrow. It's a little too dark to get any good photos tonight.

Hey all. Have a question. I tried looking at the 620 site for head info, but, it's down. I have three heads to choose from.
U67
W53
W58
Please don't ask if they are open or closed. I have no idea at this point. In general, which one would be a good choice for a daily driver with a stock cam (for now) and bottom end. Have a Holley 32/36 waiting for a home.
Looking for a set of smog free manifolds for it too.
