I recently made a reallllllllllllllly rushed decision to buy a high mileage, nearly rust free, not totally daily ready '85 720 4x4 with the carbed z24. Did I also mention that I have no knowledge of manual transmissions as far as operating them.....?
So, before my family rips my head off and shoves my shame down my throat..... I need some help.
It runs pretty poorly. I can tell the timing is off, the aftermarket carb doesn't have the electronic bits hooked up and runs rich, OMG the stuttering and backfiring are atrocious, and I'm pretty sure I wired the ignition wrong (although it ran better than when I bought it, so¯\_(ツ)_/¯).
I have a week-long layoff, so I have time to get it daily ready. I'm really in need of some wiring help, I might be a tooth off on timing, and I probably just need to do a crash course style carb clean on the extra stock carb that came with the truck.
I just bought my sorta dream truck, and I really don't want to have to post it up online as parts because I don goofed. Please help!
