I know, there isn't a video posted here ... if I put this in the proper area, it isn't visible to non-members - so I put these here :oops:

a question came up yesterday between my older bro and I.


were the engines /trans installed into the 620's from the bottom or the top. I was thinking from the bottom since it's an assembly line.

how did I do ?

We are going to have to get down to the bottom of this!

I don't know, I'm just making a guess, but it seem like they would assemble the frame with the engine and trans. Since the 620 has torsion bars up front, I would think dropping the engine and transmission in the frame from the top would be the easiest. Then drop a cab on the frame, over the engine and transmission. But like I said, I'm just taking a guess.

^ I like that web site ... good stuff!


Did You Know:
By 1972 Nissan was the fourth largest car manufacturer in the world with sales in 120 countries around the world. Between 1967 and 1972 the number of Datsuns exported had grown from 131,000 to 2,700,000. This required a fleet of twelve ships, some capable of carrying 1200 cars in one go. Their range was not only huge buy also very diverse in both mechanical layout and styling. Exports were at an all time high and Datsuns were having plenty of success in motor sport around the world, thus raising the marque's profile even further.
