    This is a hard part to find, in SoCal. I've seen only maybe 2 still on vehicles at Pick Your Part. Maybe, easiest way and widest audience, is eBay and or Facebook. Some folks are parting out trucks...
  2. Like others have said, Weber and 720's don't go together in California. It won't pass visual. I've read stories about folks using a Weber and original air cleaner that has been modified for the Weber. That helps disguise the Weber and might pass visual at a sloppy shop. Some have claimed to have done so successfully. From this webpage that sells Weber, it seems to claim the 8000 series is legal for certain engines in a Toyota. http://www.redlineweber.com/carb-kits/auto/toyota-truck/ Bottom line, to my knowledge, there is no CARB compliant carburetor for the 720's in California, well beyond the stock Hitachi.

    My 720 has been ROCK SOLID. Occasional higher temperature, mostly due to my own neglect, low on coolant. I've only replaced the water pump and then oil/filter. Been a super reliable vehicle for some 50k miles!
  4. You'll probably be redirected to the classifieds. By your profile description, you're in the NW, so assuming Oregon/Washington. There are plenty of trucks in that area, which I'd assume plenty of parts trucks or trucks in the junkyards. That would be your best bet. There are at least a few guys parting out trucks in the PNW. If you refine your location, they may be inclined to respond to you
  5. I think I'd also check Row52.com. There are a couple of Datsun 4x4 720's out there. Couple in WA. You might be able to guy someone nearby to see if the part is still on the truck. Row52 also seems to have a 'puller notification' service. Maybe by putting out a request, someone might do it for ya.
  6. Great point! Thankfully mine has been passing, I'm sure there's always room for improvement.
  7. Which Cat did you buy/use? Those numbers seem to be insanely low!
  8. I believe I bought one of these a few years ago, and worked out just fine. Can't recall the part number. Do recall, it was a lx555 or lx556. Some of them are repackaged Hitachi's, which is what came with Nissan's back in '85. Googling the part number, the pics I found were 4 wire for the lx555 I'd definitely buy it. You can go to the junkyard, don't know the situation near Seattle, here in SoCal, that kind of stuff is never on the truck by the time one gets to the junkyard, unless you are one of the 1st there. Here in SoCal, there has been very few 720's in the local Pick-Your-Part's, a couple in January, then two ST's just showed up in the past few days. Might be a couple more months before more show around here.
  9. This truck is totally stock. It must pass visual and does since its all stock. A few years ago, replaced spark plug wires. This time did cap/rotor,plugs. Oil was changed around 1k miles ago. Since it sat for such a long time, maybe 3 months due to Covid conditions, it sputtered a bit when driving. Some SeaFoam and a few tanks of premium along with mostly highway driving. I'm in California, so every two years 😞
  10. Adding my last two reports. Results are very similar, so pleased about that. For the 2019 test, I did absolutely nothing. Just drove it in and tested. This year, changed cap/rotor/plugs, it was about time and nearly identical reports 🙂
  11. MGTS, if you can, post a copy of your emissions test. Interesting to see how it actually tested out.
  12. I think what you have in the picture with the cable that has two connectors coming from it, is the cable that plugs into the Oil/Battery gauges. Here is a pic:

    Charlie, that is exactly what I've seen as well. Seen a large number of trucks, either junkyard or classified ads, and that is the way it seems to play out. I have yet to see a non 4x4 with a throttle body. Not saying it never happened, just saying, haven't seen it. Could be, that those throttle bodies were prone to needing repairs, so they just got junked instead?
  14. Rodeo seats are nearly 100% bolt in. 1st, put the bolts into the rear holes, can't recall, you may need washers if using original bolts. On the front, you will need washers, otherwise the original bolt head in my opinion doesn't have enough meat to hold onto. Put the bolt in, and you can bend the overhanging track back to the 'hump' as you tighten the front bolts. That's it, nearly plug/play, an ever so slight bending of that front overhanging track.
  15. Looks like dealer retail pricing, if actually available is 235. Can be had on NissanPartsDeal for 173 plus shipping.
