How many of us are building cars that they are not able to drive?


Classifieds poll? Thank you for the help.

Question:

For parting out one of my rigs, I made a general posting for all of the parts. Surprised at the lack of response.

If you are looking for a particular part which of the following are you most likely to respond to or buy from;

1. A general listing covering multiple parts, lots of reading required. Pic is of a random part.

2. An ad specific to the part that you need with the matching pic of that part.

3. A wanted posting for the part posted yourself and wait for responses.

4. I don't waste my time on Ratsun classifieds and go directly to Craigs List.

5. Fill in your own description.

Thank you, for letting me waste your time.

Old News?

Working on the 620. I am in the midst of replacing the brake hydraulic system. I have been noticing that Ebay has items for sale that are listed on Rockauto for twice the price or more. 

 

 For example I found a Japan original Brake Master Cylinder that had an old masking tape stain on one of the upright plastic fillers, at Rockauto for $39.95. On Ebay I spotted the identical Brake Master Cylinder (same pic and brand) for the amount of $79.95 - $99.95.

 

I suspect that the Ebay sellers were selling the item they did not even own, for a substantial profit no less.

 

Is this whats going on, if it is, is this something new?


620 engine swap Thoughts?

31 March 2015 - 12:54 PM

Currently I own:

1; 1980 720KC L20B/5spd (desmogged, early l16 exhuast n downpipe). This was totalled (at least the bed was), I am now running a makeshift flatbed on it. This truck runs excellent, an easy daily driver.

2; 1976 620KC Auto I just picked up, decent body starts n sounds good but a PO put an l16 in it. (It is supposedly rebuilt). I am in the midst of redoing the complete brake system so I am not able to take it out on a drive.

I am going to keep the 620KC and send the 720 to the next owner, but I am torn on the engines. Will I be happy with the l16? Is it well worth the time to do an engine swap?

Thoughts?
