  1. Bleach

    Front spindles.

    To get OEM parts like that spindle, I would go first to a wrecking yard. The Self-Pull wrecking yards are fairly reasonable on prices and they publish their price lists so you know what you're going to pay ahead of time. Search in your area using Row52.com I don't know if there were differences in the 720 spindles. If not, then any 4x4 1980-85 should work. Some 1986 trucks were 720 model and some were Hardbody models.
  2. Older Z parts are generally not going to be good options. Your model of car was 1984-89 and more specifically, just 1984 and 1985. Older Z-cars do not have bolt-on fender flares from the factory. You could buy and install aftermarket flares and cut your stock flares off. Bumpers, no. Commonly Z31 people will convert to the later Z31 body panels for a more clean and modern look. 1987-89 Front bumper, headlights, hood, and front fenders will all bolt on with only a few minor modifications needed for the headlight mounting. The rear flares will not match but you can go aftermarket for those. As for rear spoiler, the shape of the Z31 hatch is different than all other Z-cars so the 1986-89 factory spoiler is your best bet. The R200 differential is the same on the 1975-83 Z cars, at least those that had an R200 and not an R180. If you want to go with lower gearing for more torque, you can try to find a 3.9 ratio R200 in the 1981-83 280ZX non-turbo.
  3. The 710 is very rare these days, unless for some reason there are more of them in Mexico. You may find it very hard to find body panels for it. The engine and transmission are shared with many other Datsun cars and trucks so you'll have an easier time getting parts for that area.

    Pulling the choke richens the fuel mixture and keeps the engine running. It sounds like you are going too lean. Possibly a clogged jet or an intake vacuum leak. Check to see that all the manifold bolts are tight enough and that the gasket is in good shape.
  5. Maybe Nissan has the part and you can tell them the part number. The 260Z/280Z is getting much harder to find in self-pull wrecking yards. You can also use ROW52.com to find cars in yards nationwide and then they have options on the website to contact parts pullers. You might find someone is willing to pull the part and send it to you for a fee.
  6. I've also heard the grinding for clearance is required.
  7. oh wow! I have that transmission too and an L-series bellhousing. I'll save these pics for when I go to modify the bell.
  8. Z-car show put on by the Z-Car Club of Washington and Tacoma Nissan 9:00am - 12:00 On display will be a history of the different models of Z but no history of coffee. You can just drink coffee. https://www.facebook.com/events/4364888963542489
  9. What brands are available on Rockauto.com ? Are any of those what you consider to be a quality part?
  10. Datsun 720 truck - Sheerwood / Portland Oregon I'm looking for a tailgate in OK condition. (no major damage) Is there anyone near that wrecking yard that can go look to see if it has a tailgate and pick it up for me? 🙂
  11. Well, looks like this event was not being discussed on this forum. Here's a video for you anyway! My Datsun was not on the road this year so I stayed local and did not go to Powerland in Oregon.
