A few months ago, I posted that I was buying a '71 KGC10 from JDM Legends. Well, it finally arrived.
Here is how she looked when it arrived by truck:
Fast forward a few days, and I was able to get some temporary tags from the DMV to drive on until I can get the car to the DMV over for the vehicle verification. Few pics from the first few miles of driving:
It runs pretty okay, albeit with some low rpm hesitation and the carbs seem to be leaking some fuel after shut off (Mikuni 40's).
Unfortunately, I ran into some troubles with the car on that first day. It seems I am having some electrical gremlins. While driving around the neighborhood, the tachometer and turn signals stopped working and the car started running really rough and eventually stalled out. I couldn't restart it and the fuel pump won't turn on when I turn the key to on anymore. I had to push her home.
Looks like a huge chunk of the electricals aren't working: gauges, power windows, fuel pump, turn signals.
The headlights, brake lights, backlights for the gauges, dome lights, starter motor, ignition, heater/blower all still work. I checked all the fuses under the dash and they are all still good, so I'm not sure where to go next with troubleshooting. I'll probably try cleaning up the grounds and some connections and see if that makes any difference. Anyways, that's it for now. If anyone has any ideas on things to check, it would be greatly appreciated!
