  1. Well, looks like I finally solved that 2-3 upshift problem under load at WOT. Changed the fuel tank, new filter at the tank, and new filter inside the fuel pump. No more cutting out or hesitation to shift at WOT. Also spent quite a bit of time removing rust from the entire back half of the frame, 2 coats of POR-15, and some black spray paint.
  2. It's on the list, boss. 😆 Along with the rear diff fluid. Currently have the bed off doing some rust removal and changing out the gas tank.
  3. Thanks, Mike. I always like to know how things work. Seems mine is working correctly "like it did when it came off the showroom floor" 35 years ago.
  4. If I were WOT, would the converter immediately lock up after up-shifting into 3rd? I only ask this specifically because either that is what's happening or there is some very slight slippage for that brief moment. Its subtle, tho.
  5. I added a tach. I do think it locks up at highway speed. Otherwise, most of the time I'm not taking it easy on the throttle...at least not lately.
  6. I couldn't even tell you when my converter locks up. Hard to tell.
  7. Anyone know what percentage of 720s were built with an auto trans? I know it's not extremely common. I didn't even know it existed for years.

    I will have to check the hose inside diameter and then just pick up another one like what I added under the hood I guess.

    Good idea. I am installing a donor tank from my parts truck. That truck actually has much less rust on the frame, so hoping the tank is better. It's not dented so that's a plus! Ha

    Thanks. So you're using this generic type filter? Just wanna make sure I don't find myself in an "OOPS" situation when it comes to gasoline. ðŸĪŠðŸ‘ðŸŧ
  11. Unless someone knows how I can get my hands on the OEM formed fuel hoses (tank to filter, filter to pump, pump to hard line)... I'm gonna have to use an inline fuel filter and use bulk fuel hose. Is there any particular flow rate or size filter I should look for? Or any generic inline fuel filter will do? Thanks.
  12. Good tip. I also have a maintenance log. Pocket sized notepad.
  13. Haven't been able to spend much time working on the problem this week, but got this inline fuel filter on last night. Took some time to get it to fit in there well. Also, checked and cleaned the carb filter screen again. It looked fine.
  14. I was always curious about 720 production numbers, but never found any info. You were right. They kept making them in Japan and we kept importing them... my buddy has an '86 720 with a "J" VIN. Also, the WA state titles say "scale weight." My two 84 KC 2wd Deluxe are vastly different weights on the title. No difference except where they were built, and auto vs 5 spd. Not sure the scale weight info on WA titles is accurate ? My KC 2wd trucks My buddy's reg cab
