Anyone know which white wire goes on which plug terminal on the 60 amp A/C unit? Got one for free a few years back knowing I'd need it someday but it doesn't have the same plug as my old 50 amp unit.…Continue

Bumped my mirror while cleaning the inside of my windshield and broke the mount. Can't find one locally so I was hoping some one might have an extra. It's the triangular piece of plastic that mounts…Continue

"You will have to hunt around... Get the ones branded 555, or sanki 555. If it's genuine the castings will have (555) in all the cast parts. I found my last set on amazon"

Tie rod ends

Gonna be time for tie rod ends soon. I'm finding "beck arnley", "rare parts", "import direct" and "master pro" brands. Anyone have experience with any of these or know of another brand that might be better? Not too worried about price, just want good ones. Probably all about the same quality but wanted fish for some feedback. Thanks

Joe Wilson replied to Zeke Giesecke's discussion High performance cam for Z24 motor?

About Me:
Had an 85 4x4 720 for first vehicle. bought it from my Dad when I was 15, my sister wrecked her car so my dad let her borrow my truck since I didn't have a license yet. She wrecked it, dad wanted to junk it but I talked him into rebuilding it. We finished just before I turned 16 and got my license. I loved that truck because it put up with my abuse and took me ANYWHERE I wanted to go. I caught the hotrod bug when I was 18 and bought an old Chevy. My dad wouldn't let me keep 2 cars at his house so I had to sell one, he talked me into selling the truck because I kept getting pulled over since it looked like a rolling disaster. I swore that I'd get another one some day. I sold the hotrod I bought when I was 18 to fund some 720 projects, funny how things have come full circle. It may not pull an 11 second quarter mile, but these 720 pick-ups are just meant to be.

I will have to take a look.  I just got the truck not too long ago, so I still have to go through it.

Thanks for the friend add, can I send you a money order , don't got a Paypal account cause the wife doesn't want me spend a lot of money on my truck anymore. You know how the wife wants to run the house , if you know what I mean. So every time I got extra cash I hit up the junkyard just to keep my truck up to par. And since I seen you ad on 720 I figure I can send you a money order since the wife has got ahold of my credit cards and such . Let me know if we can arrange something .

Hi Joe thanks for friending me. I've been in your part of the woods a long time ago, I used to live in B.C. from 79 to 89 and would always be in Washington, SIR every year for the Funny Car Nationals, Blaine for booze and cigs, I even bought a 1970 Hemi Charger RT SE from a guy in Blaine and I still am kicking myself for selling it back to him cause it was too much trouble to bring it over the border. Thats life!! Anyway I picked up the window visors from Canadian Tire, (I have had them since 2001) what you all have is Pepboys etc, check with parts stores and see if they still have any in stock or go direct to Ventvisors. Good Luck. That is a nice ride you got too, you dont see them in that color too often, is it original? Also a regular cab as well, cool.
