    Mike in the picture above where you ran the extra cable to the starter solenoid lug, take it back off and hammer the terminal back flat. then reinstall. The problem with this set up is the solenoid stud is not long enough to accommodate the 2 large wire terminals and over time the weight of the wires and the thin nut used on the solenoid stud will eventually strip the stud and then you will have to replace the solenoid.

    A little more wiring done today. It was just to hot and humid to work outside. I can take high temps with low humidity, but high humidity just drains me.

    620 A/C compressor mount

    Contact Bonvo here on Ratsun his dad got him an L motor bracket for a Sanden 505 compressor. This is a R12 compressor so you might also ask for the R134A compressor that is the conversion of the R12 505.

    620 A/C compressor mount

    1980 720 L20B had AC you can get the compressor bracket and idler pulley from one of theses trucks. The problem with this is the steering box on the 620 might be in the way.

    82 720 pickup bogs down after engine is warm

    I would put the old plugs back in start it up and get it to operating temp, and then run it up to a steady 2000 rpm take the air cleaner off and trickle water into the carb while runinng at 2000 rpm warm. Pour slowly so you do not kill the engine. us about 8 ounces of water. This will de carbon the combustion chamber and the head. after this pull the plugs and see how much carbon is left. If plugs still show a good amount of carbon put them back in and do it again. Hard to do this ever 5000 miles on a new harley low rider I bought in 78, and I had to do this to onan generators in motor homes in the mid to late 70s.

    I understand. This distributor I found is tighter than the one in my L20B in my 520. It and the coil are OEM with 179,000 mile showed on the odometer. If you end up needing this distributor I can look into getting it recurved to your specs on your dime. Doc 510 does distributors or maybe the Distributorguy here on Ratsun.

    I have a Matchbox distributor from a 1980 720 L20B 5 speed. I will sell it with the stock factory 1980 coil for $125 plus shipping. This is for the matchbox distributor and coil swap. Also on the Ir alternator swap all you do is remove the regulator and jumper 2 wires and you good to go. This for IR alternator swap.
