I have a 1982 datsun 720 pickup 4x4 when truck is off the ground the front tires turn in 4 wheel drive when truck is on the ground front tires will not pull and it has manual locking hubs.

when its off ground the drive shafts etc are hanging and have no pressure on them so the wheels will turn , i think you need to be looking at the drive couplings,transferbox,differential , this may take some sorting out but unless there is a datsun 720 forum your going to have to try trial and error , heres a link to a 720 forum

How do I adjust the rocker arm bolts for the valve lash on a 1985 Nissan 720 pick up Z24 engine

Guys he has a Z24, Not KA24, Z24 for one, Is carbed and has older lifters and valves. They need to be tuned to spec within a certain specific limit and the cams must be rotated in certain positions when doing different valves, etc... Shouldnt take very long normally and its not a hard process but if you have a tick, you really should get it checked out. Btw, the Z24 engine's idle isnt controlled by ecu at all or else the carb wouldnt need an idle adjustment screw.

Generally the point gap is between .018 and .020 inch on just about any engine. If you set the points in that range it should be just fine.
