    Rockers must be installed to allow compression test.
  2. Possible pickup coil. When it fails to start, dump cold water on distributor with cap off. Or, you could swap distributor with known good unit
  3. Confirmed no spark when it does not start?

    Valve Cover Grommets on the Z24

    Grommets come with valve cover gasket from Nissan I believe.

    GROSS POLLUTER - Failed Cali Smog test

    I dont feel the egr is the problem. Egr stuck open, engine won't idle. Egr stuck shut, engine runs normally but with high NOx . Carb is leaking fuel into venturi when throttle is open or choke is not fully open

    Don't unplug the choke. Power is needed to open it.

    FUEL FILTER?????

    82 720 pickup bogs down after engine is warm

    I believe 720's were prone to secondary throttle plate corrosion causing them to stick shut. This might cause your lack of power.

    Oil Pump Replacement

    Long screw driver lightly jammed alongside distributor driveshaft will hold it while you change the pump.

    The "weights" on the driveshaft might be metal plates for an aftermarket cruise control. Long ago I install such a system. There was a sensor monitoring driveshaft speed mounted nearby.

    720 Weber z24 WOT dies out

    Doesn't look like anyone has changed the fuel filter that is inside the fuel pump. EVER!!! Make sure to pinch off the incoming fuel line before opening the fuel pump!!

    I believe your truck has a 2nd fuel filter inside the electric fuel pump. The bottom twists off to access the filter. Make sure you clamp off the fuel line from the tank before removing the bottom cap.
