  1. Very helpful. The shocks I was looking at said they would lift my rig 1-2” but now I understand what I’m really after is something to help under load. The last load of wood I got had me bouncing big time. Not very fun. Don’t like to strain my old girl. Would I just need bags on the back or would they be needed up front too?
  2. I have an 84 720. She is my daily driver and work truck. I make trips with heavy loads of fire wood, soil and gravel. My rig is all stock and I run 15” tires. Hoping I can get a small lift from the right shocks. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

    Lack of tach.

    Ok right on. I’m doing a carb inspection today. Cleaned it a week ago and man it sure liked that.
  4. I have an extra oil pressure and battery gauge if you need em.

    She was up to temp. I don’t have AC. I will check my choke. I’m sure some of my vacuum lines are cracked. Been trying to replace them all. Could this be a factor? Thanks for the help.

    Lack of tach.

    Hooked up the tach dwell meter to coil. Says I’m idling right around 1k. Sticker on my hood says 800 is money. When turning my idle adjustment screw it didn’t want to come down any lower.

    What is this?

    Been reading and looking quite a lot but can not find what this part is or a part number for it. It had a little red cap that fell off. It doesn’t seem to make any difference if it’s hooked up or not. Just can’t stand not knowing. Thanks!

    Looking for the right tail light hopefully with the black trim so I don’t have to paint any ugly chrome. My girl backed into my baby in her lame Jeep 😕

    Looks like I’ll have to open her up again to adjust the needle slightly. I put it right on 0 when I assembled it but it must hang a little below that when off. Hooked up a tach dwell and it’s a few hundred rpms off. That said I’m still idling a little high. I have been fixing some vac. hose and it seemed to pick up the idle. Can I just adjust at the carb?

    Lack of tach.

    I was wondering the same thing! The two small screws look to line up. That would be great. **Edit** Guts swapped! Tach looking and working amazing! Had to channel my inner Macgyver to make it work, but hot damn am I feeling good about this one. The 81 square tach was about an 1.5” taller then my 84 round. They had the circuit board mounted right behind the tach and some tall brass posts. I was able to snip a few wires, and screw it in to my combo meter with zero alterations to the meter box. Ran wire through the plug hole and mounted the circuit board on the back or the meter box. The 84 tach had the circuit board BELOW the tach so it would fit in a more shallow box. I did not think I would be able to pull it off but oh man was I happy to see it work!
