What did you do to your truck today?

Because it didn’t come that way.
Why aren't you using studs for the manifolds?
There are still 3, both ends and center. The bolts I took out are the old dished head style, so I can only assume either it came that way, or the bolts were replaced a very long time ago.

worked on sweet pea 521, removed the 620 steering gearbox and column and put the og setup back in after fiddling with the end that goes into box worm gear

I was having issues with the temp indicator, checked the gauge, the cable, the connector, fuse box...but the only problem was bad contact to ground, so if happens to you check it first. Sender its original 1980, and works great...
Window handle got broken by a friend, and i was lucky enough to get the last original one in the Nissan store i buy from...
Yesterday i installed new shock absorbers, it drives much better now... Strange how one doesnt perceive how tired shocks are until installing new ones...

My truck wouldn't start and I looked and no gas in the carb thru the sightglass. I pulled the line off the fuel pump and no fuel coming out when I cranked it.
I took the pump apart and nothing's torn, I can't tell if the check valves work ok though.
I had a new pump, it looks like carnival prize quality but whatever. Stuck it in and still no fuel coming out of it.
I think something wrong with line from tank to pump. Otherwise could be with cam actuation, but that seems less likely.

Last Monday, I swapped out the new failed alternator for a "new" one (reman unfortunately) on my KA24e swap 620 since nobody seems to carry new parts anymore
Today I swapped out that ^ alternator....what the flying fuck!!!!!
I spent hours going through my entire harness looking for the cause of the alternator not charging, found nothing, pulled it, took it to auto parts store to get it tested.....failed....got another "new one" will see how long this one lasts....this is really upsetting.
