Re: 71 521 electrical gremlin

521 should have a 28? amp alt. unless a 510 one swapped in. Pull the plastic plug in the back of it and see if that's the problem next time you go away.

Re: Headlights short out and die after being on for a while.

Forgot the relay... but the relay can't keep the dash lights on. If you had it (headlamp switch) out sometimes just messing with it will fix it.

Re: Headlights short out and die after being on for a while.

Today it happened again, but after I shut everything off, my dash lights all stayed on, no matter what I did with the headlight switch. No fuse is going to power the dash lights when the switch is off. This is likely a failure in the headlight switch. If you are careful you can pry back the folded ...

Re: Newbie needs some pointers on some 720's

Way easier to find another Z20 or Z22 head than converting to an L head. You will need L series timing cover /carb/manifolds and the intake will be tilted about 20 degrees to the left and I doubt will clear the brake master cylinder. That's even if it needs one. To rule that out ... Don't assume... ...

Re: 210 rear brakes

It's a ratchet assy. When there is enough brake shoe movement from wear, the lever can move behind the star wheel and moves it one click tighter on the return stroke, which removes the slack. It should try to do this automatically any and every time you use the brakes but only actually adjusts it wh...

Re: need opinions on Ka trans for 74 620

Farmerjoe aka Neil confermed the z24i trans at 30.5...and told me 720 driveline shortbox is an inch long than 620.... :fyea: The As the two different wheelbase lengths are in the back of the frame, the front driveshafts with the carrier bearing should all be the same length. All bolt to the same pl...

Re: ♦♦♦♦Dat's LZ Venti Deux♦♦♦♦

The Z24 has a single chain timing system right? Maybe I can solve the chain issue by using a Z24 crank sprocket. Sorry the L and Z series motors all use double chain of different lengths. KAs use single. Mike, would you say the this bottom end (Z22E,L20B crank, Z20E rods, Z22E pistons) can withstan...

Re: ♦♦♦♦Dat's LZ Venti Deux♦♦♦♦

Right? Seems pretty easy too, the Z and KA are pretty similar. The Z timing cover should bolt up to the head!? If not I dont mind some fabrication. Z series timing chain cover exactly fits the KA24E head. The only MAJOR problem is the the timing chain and the cams. the KA-DE has an idler gear at th...

Re: need opinions on Ka trans for 74 620

I've heard those numbers also but have never verified them. I've asked others for numbers and they are always different because they all measure them differently. Some to the dust shield, some to the shifter and some are actually a sloping distance from bell to output which will always be longer. If...

Re: need opinions on Ka trans for 74 620

in addition to Kami's post. Are the 620 4 speeds and 5 speeds the same length? So if there is a 620 four speed currently I can just swap out the 5 speed yeah? 620 4 speeds and 5 speeds are the same length im using the 240 KA24DE trans in my truck - cus it was free :) Correct. All L series (4 or 6 c...

Re: need opinions on Ka trans for 74 620

Thank you Mike.....do you have any info on the z24i d21 5speed ?? Or anymore info on the d21 ka trans?? Like length? There were Z24i motors in the 720 till '86.5 when the D-21 was introduced. (the 720 only had 71B 5 speeds) D21 Z24i '86.5 through '89 or later KA24E, '90 through '97 used the 71C 5 s...

Re: need opinions on Ka trans for 74 620

Best easy fit is an FS5W71B from a Z series motor. Make sure that it's 31.5" long. It has the same orientation and will bolt to a KA motor and is also the same length as the '74 620 F4W71B four speed so no mods to driveshaft or mount. The '81-'86.5 720 2wd (gas engine) and the '80-'83 200s(S110) had...
