Hey Kesler,

Were you the one who spotted a longbed Nissan in a junk yard not long ago?

I've been interested in finding replacement rear leaf springs for some time, but all I can find are either 2WD or 4WD leaf springs. The longbed, with the 5200 lb GVRW, has stronger rear springs, and they are hard to find. I can't seem to find the part numbers for them, either.

I passed by this 86 longbed on the way in to work today, and I had to stop to grab a couple of pictures. I know I've posted them in another thread already, but they were so good I had to post them again here:

1986, V6, 5-speed, 296k miles, $2500

Nope it wasn't me, but I will look around in my area and see if there are any around here. I have seen a few long beds sitting around. That is a good looking 86 model.
My next project is gonna be started this weekend. I'm gonna thump out my truck with a bad ass sound system. I will post it when its finished. 1000 watts of toe curling bass!

Hi John,

It has been about a year since we heard from you. How is your carb conversion doing? Is it running OK still? Any issues to report?

Default Still going great

Hey J.P. sorry I have not been here for awhile, just been really crazy changing careers. Truck is still running awsome, although I did swap to a 600 holley carb, still getting good gas milliage. I don't live as far from work now, I use a tank of gas about every two weeks. I.E. I only live 15 miles away from work. I am doing more drag racing these days so the nissan sorta has taken a side line.

Default Distro and timing.

So you didn't do anything to get the distro advance to continue to work? Cool. I had been told you had to convert the distro to a vacuum advance type unit to make a carb work - obviously that sounds like that is wrong and finding a vacuum advance distro for the v6 is next to impossible.

Thanks for leading the way. Now to pull my 86 D21 out of the scrap line and get it back together.

Saw this thread popup hehe you did what i did to mine, except i went much farther, i put a weber 32/36 on mine (put the largest jets i could get in it), then i removed the entire computer and electronic ignition (installed the older magnetic ignition from a datsun)

edit: i have an 86' 1/2 XE with the z24 engine so i had an easier time getting parts since datsun z20/22 parts fit on my engine. I hooked my vacuum advance up earlier last year, works great.

John, I know its been years now since being on this forum and I don't know if you are still on this forum or this thread but I was just wondering if you were still running your carb on your VG30I with the stock distributor? I know its a long shot but figured I would try!
