These are the rims I'm using. As you can see there is a recess for the washer. The original studs are nowhere near long enough and I have longer ones to put in - hopeful they're long enough as I went by the Armada specs.

Re: Electrical gremlins

Whenever there is any kind of electrical gremlin, 99% of the time it is caused by a bad ground. Glad you found where yours was!

Re: Brake and fuel line flare type.

I have used Byron's $$$ flaring tool and yup it works great - so much better than the cheapo type you'll find everywhere. When I do my 620 lines I just might have to see if I can borrow his... :D

Armada lug nuts odd size??

I acquired a set of '10 Armada alloy wheels for my project and attempted what should have been quite simple - buy some lug nuts. The ones I got aftermarket (Dorman) are too big in the shank (17mm) to fit into the rim holes (15mm). Tried another set, no different. Tried the dealer and what they show ...

Re: Joyce’s ‘71 521 Farm Truck

There's a series of video by "Bluehands" doing a disc brake conversion on a 520 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylr6uuMNUGA) that may provide some useful info.

Re: Muffler selection. Magic solution needed.

Perfect topic, I'm building my 620 and trying to figure out best choice for exhaust plumbing. I had been thinking of 2" pipe from the header into some kind of muffler, and Monza style tips. Like others on this post, I don't want loud, want the sweet spot of sound and ability to have conversation whi...

Re: 620 KC project

I have been very busy with work lately and not much time to work on the project. That being said, there continues to be progress. The frame has been bead blasted, brake/fuel lines removed, and brakes disassembled. I have sourced many of my replacement parts in preparation for reassembly. I have whee...

Replacement body bushings - source?

Hi gang, has anyone found a source for replacement body mount bushings? My need is specifically for a 620/720 but I suspect if anyone has a source they might be able to provide what I need. Original bushings are too old to consider for re-use.

Re: moar good videos :P

In the written world it would be called plagiarism - noted the license plate hasn't been obliterated either. Bad form.

Re: 620 KC project

Lots of work done since I last posted. I stripped down the 720 (reg cab long box) and had the 2 frames to compare - the forward box mounts will need to be relocated and the rear most mounts re-drilled 5cm forward. The 720 frame is slightly longer so will shorten it accordingly. Gas tank presents an ...
