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!"

so was working on my nephews 620 today with friend carlos from cali and was thinking bed was issue about drive shaft clearance but to find out it is the cab that is the issue, and so the driveshaft that came out of truck is 2 short at the carrier bearing /rubber mount. it s a 2 piece drive shaft so we installed a 1 piece driveshaft and it works but is rubbing on cross member that holds gas tank to frame. the passenger side leans down more than left so i aired up tires to 32 psi and then carlos adjusted passenger torsion bar bolts, i talked with the previous owner to see if he messed with the torsion bars b4, but the only thing he did was install (2) 2 inch lowering blocks on each side of axle/leaf springs so now the bed will have to come off to see if we can tweak the suspension gas tank mounting cross member to get some better driveshaft clearance. also it used to have a L20b and a 5 speed transmission, now it has a L16 with a 4 speed and i think the 5 speed was longer than the 4 speed

Yep, the 4-speed is typically shorter that the 5-speed

going to remove a set of lowering blocks to see if that will free up some space between driveshaft and gas tank x-member behind cab
