720WORLD is a spinoff of the popular MSN User Group, Nissan/Datsun 720 Pickup Owners (nissandatsun720pickupowners@groups.msn.com) which was founded by Patrick Smith many moons ago...

The mission of 720World is to provide a central place for Datsun and Nissan 720 owners from around the world to gather, share information, and help one another.

While we are primarily focused on the 720 series here, we welcome owners of any Datsun or Nissan truck to participate! We all share a common lineage and pride. So whether you have a D21, Patrol, 620, Ute, or just a Nissan engine in your truck, join in and share.

That being said, welcome to 720World.com!

"Thanks Mike, you explain it well. I remember having that load and being in traffic. Knowing about the weak countershaft bearing I'd opted to use 4th gear for part of the trip, in some hilly areas. That's where the RPMs were a bit high, say…"

"Not really the safety I was concerned with but the extra revs will produce more blow by. If it is excessive  the fine oil fog in the crankcase has less time to settle out and can be pushed out and carried along the valve cover hose into the…"

Seem to be using some oil lately...

Lately I've noticed that now and then I have to add some oil to my once new engine. It now has about 40K miles. I traveled from Montreal to Carberry Manitoba with about 1000 lbs of payload.

I kept an eye on the oil, was holding good, then suddenly, I was down a liter/quart. I should mention, there's no CAT in my exhaust system, so there's only a new…See More
