Managed to found a front brake set of a 1981 pup.Cleaned everything from rust and rebuild the calipers.Just got to put them on.
Any ideas how can i get the ball joints from the old arm with hurting them?

So i used i ball joint puller and safely removed the joints from the old arm.
The answer finally is that you can use the pup front brakes with the spindles on the first luv.

Right before the carb i have a fuel filter.If i leave the car parked for a week and the filter leaning backwards to the pump it gets totally empty after about a week.If it leans forward it gets half empty.I have the originall electric fuel pump under the bed.

I removed the bench and painted the floors.Still got to make some patches.Also i am planning to get a pair of buckets from a tiburon.
Next thing that i am thinking is a weber 32/36.Anybody knows if you can work the advance vacuum with that carb?
I red here that the 32/34 weber bolts on the manifold straight with no adaptor and you can use the advance vacuum.Any feedback for that carb?

Hi there, nice job. Looking for parts for my LUV I found this guy in Greece, might be handy for you https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ssn=kous_vasi&_pgn=5&_skc=800&rt=nc

Could you please tell me where you purchased those floor repair sections?

sorry for the late answer but haven t been here for a long time.
I have seen that guy selling things for luvs but the prices are rediculus.
I bought the panels from a store here in Greece that had some old stock for luvs.

Finally i got my truck on the road
I put a weber on it and althoug it is not jetted correct it works much better than the nikki.
The disc brake swap works fine but the brake pedal makes a big travel so i will swap the master cylinder with another one from the next generation.
The brake light in the dash won't come off and i checked that the parking brake lever is missing the little plate that pushes the switch for the light.
Can anyone post some pics of the brake lever so i can figure out how it works to fix mine.
Also the speedo is not working and i believe that the speedo gear in my transmition is damaged.Is there any fix for that problem?
