  1. Well I see that whatever is supposed to toggle the clutch switch is missing. How often should I replace the O2 sensor? Where is the water temp sensor, and where is the temp gauge sensor. I want to make sure those are pugged in. The temp on the dash hasn't been working. Yea secondary is always bigger. I know that much from doing my Land Cruiser carb
  2. I do not like this Sam-I-Am. Too many electronic parts for a carb. My Land Cruiser carb is much easier compared to this. Do you think it might be held in with O-rings? I don't want to damage, but it really needs to be cleaned I wonder if it's related to the running issues I had. When just rolling down to road with little throttle, if felt fine. When I tried to get up and move, it would lose a lot of power, but when I let off the throttle, I would get a sudden lurch and it would be fine again. Kinda like something was turning on and off. We will see of the rebuild helps with that
  3. Carb overhaul time. What does this shaft to and how to I remove it? It twists just slightly and I've tried pulling it, but I won't come out. I don't want to pull too much lest I break something.
  4. And when should I replace the timing chain/guides/tensioner?
  5. Which hoses are they supposed to be in?
  6. Ok, I see that some vacuum hoses have little brass reducers inside them. Which ones? I don't trust the work that's been done by the previous owner
  7. Cool. I don't have AC. Sounds like I could remove it without affecting anything?
  8. Ok got vacuum squared away and idle is stable. There is a thing on the back of the carb that pushes on the throttle linkage. It looks like there is a vacuum port on it but nothing is connected. What is it?
  9. Excellent. I need to get me a service manual. Nissan, Chilton, or Haynes? I really want a Nissan, but I am seeing them for $80-100
  10. The vacuum advance is not connected correctly. Is there a really good CA emissions diagram? I see a lot of T connectors in the lines
  11. Here is the video My other questions that haven't been answered yet. How advanced should the timing be at idle? I pulled and plugged the advance and set to 4 degrees. With advance connected it sits around 30 degrees advanced How is the OEM support of wear items? I always try to get OEM seals and bearings
  12. I will get a video at some point tomorrow of the blow-by. How is the OEM support of wear items? I always try to get OEM seals and bearings
  13. So I picked up an 83 720 (Z24) 2WD for pretty cheap. 140k miles. Body is decent, but it needs a LOT of mechanical work. I'm starting to make my list. It's the super base trim. No tach, no trip meter. I really want to get a cluster with a tach and trip meter, don't need the clock. Is my truck already wired for the tach? Can I just plug-n-play? How much blow-by is normal? There seems to be quite a bit. I've got 180-185 psi in all cylinders and adjusted valves to .012 hot. How advanced should the timing be at idle? I pulled and plugged the advance and set to 4 degrees. With advance connected it sits around 30 degrees advanced What are some good sites for used or aftermarket parts? I really need to replace the bench seat in my truck. I'm 90% sure it's not the bench that came with it. I also want to replace some light covers and could used a grilled that's not cracked Thanks!
