Window Seals and Door Seals

10 March 2017 - 06:24 AM

Hey Fellas, back again with a question about door seals and weatherstripping. 


Firstly, a few months ago I was involved in a slight incident with my driver's side door and a garage door, which pushed the window frame forward and made the door unclosable. I was pissed, but was able to correct the issue, and now it looks as if it's never happened. (the door is less than a mm too low; the only way you can tell is if you follow the decals and notice that they are ever so slightly off).. This incident resulted in some damage to the door seal. which means that when I am in a car wash, water drips down the side of the door. 


Secondly, there is some excessive wind noise at around 50 MPH and above, which I think is due to the door seal and the window seal. After closely inspecting it, it seems like the seal for the window was replaced at some point, or it was bound up and permanently messed up. I suspect this because when I go through a car wash, there is a slight amount of water the penetrates the bottom right (towards the front of the vehicle) side of the window. 


My questions are:

  • Is there a writeup on replacing the window and door seals?
  • Where can I get seals that will actually work and seal properly? 


Here are some pictures, because pictures are fun:

Minnesota 720 Owners

25 December 2016 - 08:52 PM

Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but I was wondering if there are any other 720 owners up here in Minnesota. I've been looking on the internet for a Datsun Club here in MN, and I haven't come across any active websites that are doing meetups or anything like that. I was at the LQK (only one in MN) up in Blaine, and the big guy working the desk there said that supposedly there is a guy up there that has four 720s in his garage/driveway, but he was unable to confirm whether they were 620's, 720's, or hardbodys. You'd be hard pressed to find even a hardbody up here that isn't completely rusted out or a hunting/mudding rig, so I can only imagine that there are not too many 720's left up here. Personally, I had never even seen or heard of a 720 before I purchased my '86 4x4. I know there is one guy on the forums up here in the cities, but I forget his name, so that makes for a total of two 720's in MN, running or otherwise. No junkyards have them, which is a bummer. If anyone's up here, light a smoke signal or something so I can have someone to appreciate these vehicles with. 

Differential Questions

08 December 2016 - 06:18 AM

What experiences have you guys had putting LSD's in your trucks? Were there multiple types of diffs installed in 720's? 


On my I.D plate it reads "FS5W71B", which I think (correct me if I'm wrong datzenmike) denotes the standard 5 speed, followed by CA41, which according to post 10 on this page denotes a 4.1:1 C200 rear and an R180 front. Is this correct?


I was on a kick last night and found a company called Traction Concepts who sells LSD kits for open differentials. I have also heard that people like to take the rear differentials out of WD21 Pathfinders for their LSD needs. What do you guys think?


I'm not necessarily in the market for an LSD, but I am just trying to get an idea on what I need, and how much it will cost. If it helps, I have a 1996 XE-V6 Pathfinder in the field behind the shop. 

Bush guard for 720

07 December 2016 - 06:25 AM

Does anyone know if a D21 Brush/bumper guard will bolt on a later model 720? There is one on craigslist for like $40 and I just wanted to see if anyone has had an experience with this. Thanks!

Nissan Truck Look Book!

14 August 2016 - 07:16 PM

Hello everyone! As part of the purchase of my 1986 Nissan 720 King Cab 4x4 (Thread can be found here), I received some goodies. One of the items I received is a look book of Nissan trucks from what seems to be the 1984 model year. A basic Google search yielded no results, so I may not be naming this piece right. Either way, I thought it would be cool to share this with those who are interested in some cool pictures of these trucks, as well as educate members who's trucks are older than they are by 10 years (like me) on specifications and trim packages. 


NOTE: My copy machine was not large enough to copy these double page images properly, so I decided to take pictures of them and crop them to best fit. I apologize in advance, as these do not do these high quality images justice.
