Pulling my L320 from mothballs
Posted 31 December 2017 - 02:03 PM
The Passenger side rear brakes were sticking when I tried to push the truck onto the trailer forward.
I ended up dragging the truck up onto the car transporter with a come along.
Looks like this side was not working correctly even before the truck was parked. I fiddled around with the e-brake mechanism and if it is stuck it must be in the cable, which is entirely possible. Never assume anything right? Maybe the brake shoes are wrong. I will need to take time and compare the parts to the working side.

I can copy these photos and paste them here in 4 steps, open the link, right click on photo and copy photo, paste in the post/reply field, you seem to only be able to post links, if it doesn't give you the option to post the photo you should use a different hosting site, most do well with Postimage.

I have an old E1 and extra 320 transmission or a pullout J13 that I bought from a ratsun guy way back when he was swapping his 520 to one of those turbo death motors☠️. I wish I could remember his name, he lived near Sacramento.

Did anyone see this?
The owner of this engine on Ebay is dismantling a complete floor-shift pickup and selling parts. He has a chunk of the parts on the 'Datsun 320 Owners' FaceBook page.
Heads Up !!

I bought these off that guy's eBay store:
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 .
