    Z24 surges and dies

    Thanks Mike, was looking for ideas before I head back over.

    Z24 surges and dies

    I start it and it seems to idle for 3 or 4 seconds then starts to rev high, maybe ten seconds later it stumbles and dies. This is w/o touching the gas. He has no tach so I'm not 100% on how high its revving. I think he said he pulled the air cleaner off to remove the valve cover, but not the carb. I'll check on o2 sensor, did they have them on carbed z24? I guess the clutch needs bled, so it can't be driven currently.

    Z24 surges and dies

    That's my second guess, only had an hour today. So I figured I'd check what most people get wrong when doing the chain, the pump. He's what I would consider competent, so I'm hoping he got the chain right. I'll start with vacuum lines Friday.

    Z24 surges and dies

    I have a friend that replaced his timing chain on a 85 720, and it was backfiring, it also surges and dies. I went over and checked that the oil pump was positioned correctly, it wasn't, and corrected that. It no longer backfires, but still surges and dies. Is this typical with a chain that was set incorrectly, I did not want break into the motor today so I didn't check into it.

    Is that a stock blue? Looks unfamiliar to me.

    Finally got it all covered with epoxy at least.

    "The 1600 pickup was Datsun's attempt at competing with Ford's F-150 half-ton pickup." Datsun was so ahead of their time they came out with a truck to compete with the F150 a decade before Ford.

    Looking to rewire my truck

    http://easternbeaver.com/Main/main.htmlis also a good resource, as they offer the ability to get specific connectors, rather than a preassembled kit.

    Thank You, and for anyone that might come across this its 3M 08864. I'd recommend 3 bottles. I did 2 but an extra bottle would allow you to be more liberal with it.

    Sandblasting took way longer then I thought it would, but finally covered in epoxy. Gonna give it a couple days to cure and then do rubberized undercoating.

    Was gonna try to do a flip down plate one, but with the angle the tank spout is, didn't think it was gonna work well. Besides the 620 is for hauling stuff.

    I just use a Lincoln weld-pak 100. Looks like all my pics broke, even new ones show up broken. Is photobucket taking a shit?
