failed my recon inspection again today. I need two new tires for the rear because the load rating on the tires did not match the load rating on the VIN plate....:mad:

Just ordered the tires, I love wasting 300 bucks on something i dont need..

Drove mine....after I replaced the head gasket this weekend. No problems encountered with the job, except I might consider leaving the intake manifold on the head the next time it comes out. It's an LZ20 and those manifold bolts are just about inaccessible. Running good again. Now to find the vibration....smooth on deceleration, bad on acceleration 2750 rpm and higher. Been a while since I checked my u-joints....hmmm

Today I started my truck and drove it to work. I also played with the radio knob, turned on the heater, and pushed the gas pedal a bunch of times. I left the brake alone. :D

I love doing things to my truck! ;)

I should be getting my clutch slave cylinder today from Rock Auto.
Thanks, Aaron

I pushed and pulled the 320 and the 521 out from in front of my garage, switched their spots in my 'parking area'. I had to air up a tire in the 521 first, it was dead flat. Not sure if busting a gut counts as working on my truck?

Once the 521 was where I wanted it, I pulled out a retro Jensen analog cassette deck, reconnected dismantled wiring, and PB Blasted 1/4 of the entire truck. Test fit a LUV Hitachi alternator (40 amp, I think), looked for an hour for a derelict Hitachi 2bbl. Sorted through a box of 521 stuff. Sorted through a couple of '20 year accumulation' boxes. Found a bunch of knick knacks to put the 521 together including a boat ignition switch, a dome lamp, alternator brackets, belts, gasket making paper, battery cables, and a neato rust stripping tool. Got out my book on fiberglassing, so I could make plans for the floorboards. Looked over the wiring diagrams, and the parts list for the 521 from 'the620.com', and looked through ads here for a tailgate and a hood. :D

Get hold of user name "What". He has a 521 hood that has my name on it. My buddy I was thinking of got another one. If you want it, go get it. Tell him I said it's OK.

put a canopy on my L320.
Posted Image
no really i just needed a place to put it till i trade the canopy for a 720 next weekend.:D on my NL320 i removed the fender, hood, trim, tailights and manifolds. then i sat back and admired my finally garaged truck. that dang fender took about an hour and a half to get off. i finally took a cutting wheel to a section of it and pryed it apart to cut the bolts off. and yes, i have another straight fender which is the reason it came off.

You are always exposed to danger, danger of getting hurt, danger of dying. This is your life, and you either approach it in a, in a professional, in a cool manner or you just drop it, leave it alone and don't do it anymore. And I happen to like too much what I do to just drop it, I can't drop it

sjeff64 - I wonder if it is a Datsun thing to always flip the "bird " in a picture of your rig LOL

Replaced the left rear wheel cylinder and finally got to drive the the ol' Yokohama mama. The brakes are still screwy but at least I got to drive her. Going to wait until I can afford new brake shoes before I replace the RR wheel cyl. and all the rubber lines
