Are you selling old parts? Are you offering advice on how they were built? There are guys who will be interested either way, just not sure what you are offering everyone.

I'd like to know more about the aluminum front diff offered by Low Mfg.

Also, what happened to the Co. as a whole?

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!"

The 620 front end set-up, aka the 4x4 kit, made by Low Mfg. back in the day, was all shipped out by me when I worked for them.

 

Having been an employee for them, I have insider knowledge about the company and can answer questions pertaining to the aforementioned 4x4 kit.

 

 

 

 

 

I'll be available to translate further responses as well.

Just looking to help folks with the 4 wheel drive kits from Low MFG. Worked for them from '77 to '80.

Early kits were 5 lug Jeep drum, then the rest were disc brakes using Datsun rotors and calipers.

For the aluminum front ends, I just remember that they were a pain.

Not trying to sell any parts, just looking to help people and try to locate other employees. Low MFG went away because other manufactures began to make 4wd factory.
