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?
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?
