    Can anyone give me a checklist of sorts of things to look for/to fix and where to get parts (I can't really find anything online)

    I bought a project car but honestly haven't worked on cars before

    It runs and I would like to get it registered and possibly drive it often


    Fix only what is broke!  Other wise you just might go down the rabbit hole.

  2. I do not have mine plumbed that way but I would try using the EGR port and see how well it works.


    I have not had any time to work on my trucks for a few months now.  When I do get freed up there is several things I want to try with my Webers and different set ups.


    I have a 1986 720 king cab that I have had a new Pierce Manifolds Weber DGEV on since 2011 just after I bought the truck.  I have a 1984 720 King Cab that I have a rebuilt Z20 for and it will get a used Weber DGEV installed when the Z20 is in the 84.  I also have my 1966 520 that I have a rebuilt L20B and a rebuilt automatic trans in that will get a new Carbs Unlimited Weber DGEV when I get the exhaust and wiring done.


    I have run Weber DGEVs on my Datsun/Nissans since the early 70s.

    Yeah I just don’t remember if those fuel pumps are supposed to be razor tight.  Meaning a ton of force needed to install.  

    Depends what position the eccentric lobe is.

    Well that seems to have fixed the fuel delivery problem but now my battery is dead from trying to crank it over.  Guess I just wait for the tow truck and have them tow me home or give me a jump.

    and @banzai510(hainz) I’m not using NGK wires…was using MSD and like to try the simple things first.  And why would I have calcium deposits on the dizzy cap side inside the wires?  

    Simple and free would be check for vacuum leak.

  5. My understanding of the 4 speed fans in the 720 were equipped with the the 180 watt heaters.  These are in trucks that were delivered to extremely cold regions.  In all the 720s I have owned over the years I have only seen 3 speed fans.  Granted I live in Phoenix but my 86 was sold new in Salt Lake City Utah and while I was in Northern Nevada I bought 720's from Idaho, Montana, Minnesota and Michigan.  None of these trucks had the 4 speed fan.  I have owned many factory AC 720s from 1980 on and still that has not produced a 4 speed fan either.
