78 KC DD

Postby Eagle_Adam » Fri Jul 12, 2013 11:49 am

my brother has been rocking a 720 4x4 as his DD for the last year or so, but he got a new job that tripples his commute easily but the $ is worth it so i went on the hunt for a CHEAP DD for him.......




this is what i ended up with:

1978 620 King Cab!!

Image


the ad popped up on CL and i was there 45 min later, no pics in the ad but it had all the right tell tell signs

The truck is a good 10ft truck!

truck has:

4speed
L20 bottom end
round port W58
header
weber 32/36

so now i need to do a once over and make a list of fixes that are needed before i can hand it off to my brother


So far i need to:
replace the temp sender, the PO tried to put in an aftermarket gauge setup and never finished
replace the oil pressure sending unit - same sead the PO put in an aftermarket gauge but i dont like the idea of an oil line going into the cab
new battery
new rims and tires
check the breaks
check all fluids


Im going back today to put new tires on it and drive it home!

Got 4 usable tires on, and made it to a gas station for air, a clean windshield, and it's first tank of gas!

Image

Then got her home and started a once over and tune up.

Finished around midnight but got a lot done

Got her home and started the good ol once over!

I promised myself no matter what I'm not modifying this truck in any way shape or form. No lowing, no motor improvements unless forced, all function

Popped the thermostat open to replace it and found there wasn't one...

Image

Replaced:
Plugs
Wires
Cap n rotor
Thermostat
Valve cover gasket
Oil change
Removed the old oil pressure unit and temp sender, changed em back to stock cus they weren't working

But an easy tool care of it

So we adjusted the timing, replaced the fuel filter and hoses, and threw in a spare center console I had

Why does everyone forget I have an entire 620 I don't want?

Anything. Everything. Yours.
Come get it.

Exhaust should be decent. I took the manifold for my own stash-but will part with it, IF YOU NEED IT, because it's you.
If you need the regulator, I will. Was trying to keep the door as a single unit. But for you...
I think I have the door lock keys and ignition. I will look when I get home.
Short box is in great shape.

I do have a brand new Nissan ignition with 2 new keys on eBay right now.

Shameless plug? Sure.
But I need a 210!

For you-they're yours.
Just don't know about shipping.

GreaseMonkey was supposed to coming to haul this thing off.
Haven't heard anything from him. PM'd him Tuesday.
