    720 project.

    oh okay what all can i do to a z24 internally to boost proformance? i have one i have to replace the main bearing and i have a running (barley) motor in my truck. i was thinking about building up the motor before i put it back in and put a 4 spd behind it. right now i have a 5 spd and i hardly even use 5th

    what if say i had another z24 that i blew a main bearing in and wanted to "build" it up before i drop it in the truck? and also would finding a 4 or 5 spd and putting that in with it be better? im really just trying to make it a good street legal offroad truck if that helps any. some roads i have to hit like 55mph but the ones i drive on are mostly 45 and lower. total random add guys. most people i talk to about this dont know as much or just say how much of a pos my truck is so its nice to talk to people that know about the trucks and nissans. hahaha

    my torsion bars are maxed out.i was thinking about getting the tightening bolt for the torsion bars of a hardbody because the bolts are the same size just more thread. would that even work though?

    runs and idles great for 5 to 10 minutes then shuts off

    your carburetor might be on its last legs mine was doing the same thing before it died except itd leak fuel everywhere i managed to start it and get it home but it wouldnt fire up after that. also check the hoses coming from the fuel filter they might have cracks in them which lets it fill the float bowl up but when it starts running the pump cant keep up with the amount of fuel puming out. as for the fuel filter you should have one right on the frame by the fuel filter.

    4x4 720 coilover suspension

    I dont really want a 4 or 3 link. Im just thinking itd be cool to run coilovers and slowly upgrade/add/fab new things. Sas was deffinatly where i wanted to get to at some point. I was really thinking of going with some jeep wrangler axles dana 30's i believe but have shocks/coilover suspension along with the leaf springs. truth be told this is new to me and most of my family my dad straight axled his 80/81 longbed with chevy 10 bolt axles i believe and one of his shackles broke. Im all for that but i wanna see what i can do before i got to halfton axles. only other sas we've owned have come sas from the factory. I also dont plan on doing crawling i like playing in puddles and getting the truck dirty maybe some trails and on occasoin crawling over stuff but not really my thing also havnt tried it so i dont know for sure.
