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!"

620 front end set up,kit 4x4 ship out was all done by me.know a lot about low mfg.
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.

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.
