Car: 1983 Datsun 720 4x4


Hello all my son and I recently purchased an 83 king cab 4x4 that has been sitting for 10 years. She starts and will run and will move under her own power. After the engine begins to warm up it sputters out a dies. It will only stay running with the air cleaner off. In my unprofessional opinion it is sounds like it is starving for air. I can keep running smoothly without the air cleaner.

I live remotely so I am limited on my tool and part availability.

I am willing to try anything and provide any information to the best of my knowledge.

Thank You in Advance
