Question about Datsun 720

1 Answer

I have inherited an old datsun pickup that has been unused for quite some time. I have no idea if there is anything wrong with it, but I jumped the battery (is completely dead, only works when connected to cables) and put some gas in it and it started briefly, then died. Could this just be the low gas or dead battery? any ideas?

I have a 1982 Datsun pickup that sputters and stalls when I go over 35 mph or up a hill help please


This is a timing issue.. The age of the vehicle has also put a lot of miles on the timing for the ignition and possibly the physical timing. You are going to have to get new distributor parts

Carburetor


Probably same. Datsuns are famous for keeping the same carburetors (and other parts, as well) with only minor year to year modifications. My '79 Datsun pickup 620, right now has a carb from a '73 Datsun 620 parts truck, runs okay-for a hitachi.
Check ebay for new, remanufactured, or used- pretty sure they would have a lot of carbs for your car. The best place to buy new or remanned carburetors, especially for our older datsuns, is rockauto.com. Very nicely planned (and huge!)catalog, too, with easy access.
Don't know about your 280Z, but with the 620's 2.0Liter engine(L20B), weber carburetors are all the rage now for them. They are excellent carburetors and very reliable, even claim to increase mileage over stock, but for $250, I guess I'll have to motor on with the old hitachi a bit longer.

1998 Dodge 1500 Pickup out of time spark


I would begin by checking 2 things. You can loosen the gas line that to the engine and turn the key on and see if the fuel pump is pumping gas to the engine. If it does, I would remove a spark plug wire and check to see if you have any fire to the spark plugs. If it has fuel and fire. I would check my timing.
