"Thanks for the advice, I can easily check the fusible link while running. The battery terminal were very clean, i.e. no corrosion or build up on the posts or clamps, the negative clamp and wire are totally new.
So far it has been…"
"Seems this only happens when the ignition switch hits the START position??? When the solenoid engages the stater there are hundreds of amps suddenly flowing between the negative and positive battery posts. If the battery posts or clamps are not…"
"Well I have had batteries that showed good voltage but wouldn't provide any current. Seems to be more common with newer batteries. also a battery that has ever been left discharged and frozen can do strange things. I'd…"
"I finally got the problem resolved.
I found a local salvage yard that had a 720, sadly it was the kind of yard that has to pull the part for you which means more money than need be but at least they had the part i needed. I was able to…"
"I have a myriad of wacky screwdrivers to get in there if it comes down to replacement, just ordered the solenoid but it won't be in for a couple days, luckily I don't need to use it....no snow at 70 degrees."

"Amazingly, a guy at work has a 720 as well but it's inoperable at the moment I believe. I passed it by him this morning the first thing he thought was the ignition being faulty because of some plastic parts inside or something…"
What is your profession? (not required, just if you want to share your knowledge)
Like to work on my cars to the point of annoyance to the lazier people around me. Also love to travel with my girlfriend and go to SCCA and Koni Challenge, LeMans, type of racing events.
I Like to camp, hike, bike, pretty much anything outdoors really...and let's not forget about drinking quality beer!!
How many 720's or other Nissan trucks do you own? What years and types?
Only own one 1984 King Cab 4x4 with the Z24 and 5 spd.
What modifications have you done to your truck(s)
Complete urethane bushing and camber correcting A-arm install plus new stereo, sub and amp. Treated the bed myself and also did my own body work and primer/wet sand for the new paint to be done, had to rebuild the front end due to a deer hit from past owner (that's how I bought it) but it only has 135,000 miles on it and runs good.
What modifications do you still plan to do to your truck(s)
Fix the rust on the bed seams or put on a replacement bed and have it painted properly this time around.
How many miles would you travel to attend an all 720 truck meet?
well i am not set on the 15, i would like to go to a 31 10.50 15 but if i found those rims at a good price i would get a metric tire size that was equal to it. thanks for the response. i may just stick with my chrome factory steelies, better for off roading, was considering a alloy to save some weight to offset the bigger tires mass. but we will see
Hey, I'm looking to install a pair of 5.25" in the kick panels like you have in this picture: http://720world.ning.com/photo/2016119:Photo:4659
Did you to some cutting, or did you just put a spacer between the metal and the speaker? If you cut the metal, did you cut the vertical divider on the left side of the stock 4" hole? If so, did it impact anything? Was anything on the other side of it? I've never installed a stereo before, but I'm excited to learn. I plan on a JVC head unit, 5.25"s in the kickers and 6x9's behind the seat.
Thanks, you can respond to me here or at email@example.com
