    Gear Box

    Had the truck looked at cause I had an adjustment and new tires put on a month ago and it was still pulling. The gear box needs replaced, the ball joints needs replaced and the tire rod needs replaces. I bought the truck for $2000, iv'e put over $3500 into it (I have all the recites for the work) Im a college student and can't continue to pay this much for a truck so I'm currently posting it on craigslist.

    Gear Box

    So I just found that my gear box is going out on my 1984 Nissan 720. How hard are these to replace? Is this something a novice like myself can do?

    My next concern with the truck is that the steering column makes a squeaking noise, I don't know for sure that it's the steering column but I don't know what else it could be. I tried putting a dry lubricant on it to see if it was just plastic rubbing together but that didn't seem to help at all. Do you guys have any other suggestions?

    I have an all new exhaust system and seems to have helped a lot, fuel filter will be next as soon as it stops snowing here

    Ive replaced the fuel filter once when I first started driving the truck about 8 months ago. I have a brand new Weber Carb. . . And paid a professional to tune it up. I replaced all the liquids in the truck when I first got it. I do have an exhaust leak, i'm replacing all the exhaust this week and will do the fuel filter while i'm at it and see what happens. Can I post picture on here somehow?

    So I was told these trucks have a lot of wiring issues would that be something to do with it? I will check for spark, I don't know if that will be it cause I get really good milage. But definitely worth checking.

    My Nissan 720

    I have an almost perfect Nissan 720 pickup with a z24 engine in it, 4x4 five speed. It only has 40,000 original miles on it and over all is in pretty good shape after sitting parked in a field for 20 plus years. The one problem I'm having is that it doesn't seem to have very much power or speed. I live in Montana where the speed limit is 80mph and i drive back in forth from here to Portland, Oregon a couple times a year and its frustrating when my top speed is 65mph. Im wondering if there is anything I can do to get more power and speed? Im very new to working on vehicles and so please be as descriptive as possible, Id appreciate it very much. I should also mention that I have a brand new weber carburetor in it along with a new radiator.
