80 720 Q's and help

Postby killshot_kustoms » Sun Jun 08, 2008 8:10 am

I just picked up an 80 720. I want to re-build the engine. THe code under the hood for engine type list it as "BNS 2.2", does that mean it is the z22? From what I have been reading the 2.2 didn't come in the 720 until 1981. I am inpressed with this truck already, 360,000 miles and it starts on second crank. This engine has 8 spark plugs (4 cyl), what other nissan/datsun engines had the 8 spark plugs.

The tail lights, are right above the bumper on the pan. I am missing one, and couldn't locate any on the web, does anyone make them?, or is it time to fab some custom lights?

I am shure I'll have more q's,

thanks for any help,Dan

Probably a very early 1981 built in 1980. If you have the 8-plug system then you have a NAPS-Z22. I miss my 720. PICS!
