  1. My 86 720 daily driver just rolled 470,000 runs strong but has rough idle. My 84 has 134,000 miles with a blown head gasket. I have a rebuilt Z20 and just picked up an 85 720 automatic for it. I hope to get this truck on the road before May as I want to sell my 86 and keep the 84 ST. Not sure how the Z20 and the automatic will work but if I do not like it there is always a KA or VG option.
  2. With LEDs you will want to buy red for red lenses amber for amber lenses and green for green and blue for blue. Because of the brightness of the LEDs if you use whitet LEDs behind colored lenses you will not see much of the color.
  3. Section the front half of the 720 frame to the rear half of the 521. The front half is where all the benifits are on the 720 frame.

    This might help you. This pigtail handles all of the instrument panel. The little silver rectangular tin can is a voltage drop that drops the voltage to around 9 volts for the fuel and temp gauges only. If this is bad neither gauge works. This is my 66 cluster morphed with the 1980 720 wiring harness pigtail.
  5. Mr Tanker that is funny the video clip of yourself!!! LOL I believe he made a boat anchor out of it!
  6. Do a complete chassis swap. I did a 1980 720 chassis swap to my 66 520. Best upgrade I did. It gets you away from King pins gives you disk brakes and removable trans cross member. also gives you rag joint steering column and the idler arm and steering gear box is outside the frame rails. This is also documented in my 520 build thread. Wayno has done several 720 to 520/521 chassis swaps. Wayno is a great source for information.
  7. Take it to an exhaust shop and have it professionally done.
  8. I buy all my Webers and parts from Pierce Manifolds Been doing business with them since the 70s.
  9. If distilled water is too expensive then at least boil your filtered water.

    65 to 68 520s all had 4 position fuse boxes.
  11. Get finished out of your head they are never finished! LOL
  12. I do not know of any aftermarket shifters that will work with the Nissan transmission as it shifts internally. All the aftermarket shifters that I know of are for transmissions that have external shifting levers. Make it easy on yourself and do as Mike suggested above.
