    1983 Nissan Sunrader 18'

    Safe to assume 1983 Nissan Sunrader 18' has 720 chassis?

    I tried to take a measurement yesterday and got roughly 29" so I will need to check my measurement again. Finding a long shaft FS5W71B almost impossible since I can't even locate a FS5W71B rebuild kit, but there are plenty of kits for the FS5W71A and FS5W71C. There is another posting saying the FS5W71C's reverse gear kit will work on FS5W71B. I'm thinking replacing my existing transmission's reverse with FS5W71C's parts might be an option worth considering instead of waiting for a FS5W71B to show up in the market.

    Thank you for the helpful advice. Any suggestion on where to finding another FS5W71B transmission?

    Thanks! Mine has: EN720 ENL720WTUF A 57 Z24(S) 2389 FS5W71B CA43 I'm an official 720 owner now. CA43 = 4.375 axle? I can't seem to find any information on the "Z24 (S)" engine. Is it just a regular Z24?
  4. I just brought a 1983 Nissan 5 speed manual Sunrader 18' with a Z24 that is in poor running condition. It drives like a boat going through choppy water because the steering wheel has play. The Z24 engine is covered with oil and it will not reverse when put into reverse gear. I don't think it will pass smog in current condition. My plan is to get it back in good running condition before trying to restore the interior. I want to replace the transmission so I can at least have the reverse gear. How can I be sure that I have a 720 chassis so I can start ordering repair parts?
