Here it's deer on the road.


Have you tried turning lights off and on?

Poly doesn't add HP. When we say performance we mean handling performance. Like tires.

#1483583 Drive shaft

Posted by datzenmike on Yesterday, 08:37 PM

I imagine the problem is vibration under load?


The bearing seldom goes bad but the rubber surround does rot away. For $300 you could buy a whole new drive shaft. The replacement kit is much less... if you can find one.


Take it to another shop, they will likely tell you a different story.



 Probably this rubber isolation doughnut...





Or do you mean the U joint? There are three of them about $30 each.

I just want it all. Is all.

But is the 'performance' really so dramatic over good rubber that it's worth it? Would the average Datsun driver even know it's better?

More like the jobs vacated by deporting illegal aliens are jobs Americans don't want. Agricultural work, yard maintenance, drywall hanging, house painting, hotel cleaning crews, fast food work (it looks like the Mexicans have taken over Jack In the Box). All the crap jobs that pay shit and are hard work.


Stuff the lazy and entitled American worker doesn't want to do.


So after we round up all the the illegals and ship them back home, who is gonna take these jobs?


Students. Or they could simply pay more for the work.

Aluminum block V8 and 5 speed.

#1483238 C200 axle from a 720 into a 620

Posted by datzenmike on 26 April 2017 - 07:32 PM

Diesels were NEVER used on the Cab/Chassis option so this has been built. Axle could be anything.


The C-200 was a Salisbury design with a removable bolt on cover on the back. H-190 and H-233 did not. Ask for a picture.


The H233 was used on the later D21 Hardbody and WD21 Pathfinder. No higher than 4.625


The 620 only used the H-190 in 4.11, 4.375 and 4.625.

#1483235 Insane Fuel Delivery "fail" -- DESPERATE

Posted by datzenmike on 26 April 2017 - 07:07 PM

The '79 had an electric fuel pump if it had air conditioning.


The return line is essential for good running in warm weather. The fuel pump merely fills, and keeps the float chamber full of gas. This is all it does. The carb removes gas as needed. The pump replaces it. When very warm the gas not used by the carb can get hot enough to boil into a vapor making running and restart very difficult. The return line has a restriction in it but allows a small amount of fuel to constantly be returned to the tank. This recirculation keeps fresh cooler fuel in the line to the carb.




Look on the front of the carb, there is a small round glass with a dot on it. Fuel level should be at the dot. Is it???



NO.... float is stuck holding the needle valve closed, no gas can get in. Needle valve is blocked or stuck.


Where the gas enters the carb is called a banjo fitting. Loosen and lift up and off carefully and you will expose a brass or plastic fine mesh screen that may be plugged. The Banjo fitting sits on the fitting holding the inlet needle valve. Unscrew and you should be able to shake it out and examine it. Below it is the float arm. The float moves down as the fuel level drops, allowing the needle valve to open and let more fuel in. As it rises it closes the needle valve.


To access the float remove the three screws holding the front cover holder on and lift away. Now carefully pry out the front cover to expose the float chamber. Have a care as there are tiny parts that can fall out. Suff a rag under the carb front to catch anything.


If it was the needle valve or float you should have found something by now.

'78 and up got ball joints to replace the king pins, disc brakes on the front, internally regulated alternators and electronic ignition distributors.

I had a lot of coffee when I posted this morning so I was gentle.



You would not have gotten a ticket if you were obeying the speed limit. You were in the wrong simple as that. I have no sympathy for speeders. Not everyone can exceed the speed limit safely, so when you do it, you encourage other incompetent drivers to do so as well. Set a good example with your driving. There are altogether too many people out there that shouldn't even be on the road.


I still think cameras are wrong though.

I don't know why people still continue to use poly. Maybe the rubber ones are not available? This is another 'racing' innovation that does not translate well for the street. You will have to drive the car harder than what's allowed on the street to notice anything.


Rubber grips both moving parts, twists internally and has superior vibration/noise isolation. Poly is too stiff and one part slips leading to wear and noise.  Polly needs maintenance like regular replacement (racing) or lubrication.
