New Project - 86 ST


620z

Recommended Posts

11 hours, 3 states, 1 tire and a uhaul trailer later and my new project is finally home. Over all the new truck is in very good shape. Almost completely rust free. Everything is stock except for the engine swap. It now has a ka24 from a 98 Frontier. Guess he didn't want to bother with the wiring harness so he changed it over to carb. I have the intake and wiring harness that goes with it to bring it back to injected.

Nice score.

Not 100%, but I think those may be Frontier wheels also. Don't recall seeing those on 720's

Yes, you are correct that the wheels are not the factory ST wheels and in fact from a Frontier. I was talking about the body, interior and suspension.

Interesting. Does it run? 

It will start after some coaxing but won't stay running. The swap was never completed so there is a ton of work to do to make it right.

Leave it carbureted. Check the choke comes on when starting.

 

There should be an engine tag on the inner right fender below the hood hinge. Post a picture of it to see what exactly was in this originally

I should have put the word "sure" after the "100%"😉

 

The tag Mike is talking about will probably say it came originally with a Z24I engine. Which was throttle body injection.

Ok, so I couldn't find the plate but the alleged original engine is in the back of the truck.

What I wanted to know was if it was a Z24i which has a high pressure fuel pump.... it won't work well with a carburetor.

 

Does the air filter have 2 wing nuts holding it on??? That would be a Z24i
