"Thanks Mike, I know the valve-lash can use adjustment, when the mechanic re-assembled the engine - he stated that if I wanted more advancement on the timing he would have to re-align the oil pump, because the distributor was all the way advanced…"

"This too, is an option - I've rebuilt so many parts of this truck, it would be a shame to give up on it now. I would like to get it to last through the winter though - I really rely on the 4wd to get around when the snow piles up. I'll…"

"Thanks for your interest guys, I'm going to check the guides this weekend, the mechanic I use said this could be an issue. My oil is recently changed - it's faily clean, don't think the crankcase pressure is excessive, but it's…"

Full Mosquito Kill

Hi All,My truck has started smoking badly when I start it up - it cleans up fine in about a half mile, no smoke even when I go down hill for miles - but whenever it sits for more than a coulpe of hours, it's smokey all over again. So much so that I'm afraid of getting ticketed and have parked it.I changed the valve-stem seals (no improvement) and there seems to be no sign of a head gasket leak.I've had engines with tired piston rings and bad valve guides - this is not at all like what I've…See More

Profile Information

What is the main reason you'd like to join 720World? (dont just say "because I own a 720", if you do this you will not be approved)
To know that I'm (we're) not alone - with the love and appreciation of these wonderful machines..... sorry, Corey for original "because I own" - I wasn't paying attention to your guidelines.
What is your profession? (not required, just if you want to share your knowledge)
high school librarian, in a tiny rural high school - now retired - with more time to enjoy my 720....
About Me:
I bought my 720 new back in '82 - never thought that I would keep it so long - need to be connected with other owners to keep the interest going...
Update: interest still going!
How many 720's or other Nissan trucks do you own? What years and types?
1 82 4x4 kingcab original owner - had a '77 Datsun 280z for a while, it made for a nice choice between the two..... kind of like "salt and pepper".
What modifications have you done to your truck(s)
smitty bumper, a rollbar, weber kit & loads of minor adjustments.
I added power window kits a while back - nice improvement, especially when the dogs want the passenger window down - or up.
What modifications do you still plan to do to your truck(s)
maybe a different cam someday.
Put a re-bored, rebuilt motor ('82 2.2) in sometime back, the original seemed a little stronger - maybe because it was 'loose as a goose' :)
How many miles would you travel to attend an all 720 truck meet?
100
