    Red Neck AC

    Currently the cold air delivery system is pointed directly below my bellybutton. I'm working on a better diffusement system.

    Red Neck AC

    Thanks Mike. Couldn't have done it without RATSUN.net.

    Red Neck AC

    It works. Cost me $130 for the a/c unit, $80 for the inverter, and 40 or so in for power lines and cool air diffusement setup. I put the camper shell on so it doesn't look so redneck-ghettofabulous. I had my alternator rebuilt by a local auto electric shop before I set it up, $65. It puts out 60 amps. The 1000w inverter easily powers the 400w a/c unit. $300 for a/c. ⛄ ⛄⛄⛄⛄ ⛄⛄

    Restomodair A/C?

    The problem I'm having with an aftermarket a/c system is finding someone to make the the custom hoses to connect the nissan compressor to the aftermarket system. One local shop makes them but doesn't do custom work during June July or August as they are too busy. I went with coldmaster.com. Not as pricy as restomodair but you tend to get what you pay for.

    Or go the inverter route.

    Why not just not use the kit's fitting? The intake manifold has to be leakfree for your engine to run good. All the emission stuff has been removed on my engine

    Speedometer pinion assembly

    I agree with you mostly Mike. As someone who drives for a living I use as many tools as I can to do it as safely as possible. Tools are things that assist me in getting my job done. I can never blame a tool for failure to get my job done. I am responsible for all my actions. Driving aides are are just that, aides. An aid or tool can easily become a crutch.I do my best not to let a tool become a crutch. I use GPS, smartish phones, Thomas maps, a well placed phone call, all five senses, sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste, in the course of my driving. Hypothetical case in point: Driver to Judge:"My GPS said the speed limit was 45mph." Judge to Driver: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:. Imposes MAXIMUM FINE. PM me on the taste thing, this IS a family friendly website. I do agree with you wholeheartedly that smarter cars make for dumber drivers.

    That is exactly how my Weber is set up. Runs great. I upgraded the throttle plate bushings to sealed bearings. Wire colors vary on my 720. Light return spring is to insure baseline idle. Spring pic

    Those window guides come up on Ebay from time to time. Make sure you get ones for a 86 720 and not a 86 D21 Hardbody. That's the changeover year.

    Let’s see those toppers - camper shells!

    Brahma. Came off 86 toyota. Doesn't follow the slant of the back of the cab.

    First 720

    Get a factory service manual. They are year specific to your truck. PM me if you need to see something in person. I have a 38/38 Weber on mine. I live in DRW. You can check mine out Deschutes Brewery on Sundays. Do the headbolt retorque. Check and change all fluids. Look for leaks.

    Parts truck build/One wasn't enough

    In the FSM in the body section. Not that hard. I unscrewed the speedo cable from the transfer case to make guage cluster removal easier.
