  1. if you mean the pumper plunger i put in a new old one that i had if that makes sense. and it ran good untill i started to leave for a test drive and started doing the same thing again. so i dont know if it was a coincendence (sp) or has something to do with the plunger?
  2. need help my truck will not idle or take gas right.it was running like a new one untill i quite driving it about a month ago so i could paint it. and now it will not idle or take the gas when i push the pedal just sputters instead of revving up. i took the carb apart and blew carb cleaner and air thru all the jets and holes in the carb but didnt help it. i also noticed my tach is acting screwy goin a constant speed down the road the tach will go from 2000-3000 back and forth which sounds like it could be electrical related but when i choke the carb about half way it will smooth out and run good. i have changed all the filters at the tank and at the carb and blew thru my gas lines they are not stopped up. i can take my gas line off coming out of the pump to check the pump and put my finger over the line and it doesnt seem like it has enough pressure doesnt even blow my finger off the line is this right? any help at all is greatly appreciated this is my ride to work and really need it fixed. thanks alot.

  6. Need Help

    on my 82 720 my battery was going dead and i could take the neg battery cable off and it would die so that told me it was the alternator so i got a rebuilt on it but it still dies when i take the neg cable off. anyone know what else this could be? also noticed i aint got no tail lights now but i do have turn signals dont know if the two problems are related or not. is there anyway i can straight wire it to see if that will bypass the problem? i am about ready to take the truck to the crusher it is starting to piss me off
  7. 82 720 Idle Update

    i think i have it figured out i think it is the choke relay that is whats clicking i unpluged and pluged it back up and it is working but i think it did it for a second yesterday but i got another one ordered for a back just in case i need it i looked in the manual and it had power coming from alternator ignition system choke heater and something else but i forget what i hope that is why my battery light is on then again that could be why the reley is clicking to begin with because my battery is old and i dont think it holds full charge.
  8. 82 720 Idle Update

    i had it running good most of the time anyway. it will be running good and i hear a clicking noise sounds like it coming from towards the glove box and when i hear it click it will start to run bad then it will click again and run good. anyone know what this is?maybe a relay or something
  9. i have a 82 datsun truck and it is not running right. the only way it will run is if i choke it about 1/2 way and it will idle but fast and if i adjust the idle screw down then it cuts in and out. i replaced the fuel pump and put a rebuilt carb on it. it could be a vacumm leak somewhere but i cant find nothing. anyone know what the problem might be. i really need to get this thing fixed fast.
