No answer to your question but haven't seen a 720 around in years. Is it the Kingcab 4x4? My first fourby.

Mine to,but single cab!
The motor was meant to be a 180b engine. Was a good thing apart from the drive shafts

Yeah Mick, 720 kingcab, but 2 wheel drive! very gutless! your in 3rd gear just to get to 60k's then 4th and 5th just get you to the 110k's. I'm in Ballarat and seen 1 identical at Daylesford yesterday, but that probably says it all, farm utes belong in the country!

Yeah imagine that L18 motor pushing the weight of the 4by lol. Did a few miles in that beast. I actually had the 2 wheel drive version first, then bought the first of the 4by's in Nov 1983. It cost me $10 grand from memory and ten years later they gave me $10 grand for it trade in on a Toyota station wagon valued at $19K. Don't see that happening much these days!

I owned a 720 years ago and did a engine change from L18 to L20, from memory it went straight in but do remember that I had redrill the L20 flywheel to suit the 720 clutch assembly. The L18 in my 2x4 720 had 6 bolt flywheel to crank but the L20 out of the bluebird had a 4 bolt flywheel to crank, so hence had to use the L20 flywheel and redrill it.This was eazily done by fitting flywheel in lathe and scribing line with tool bit at mounting hole diameter and then marking hole positions. The L20 was an impovement over the L18 even with 15 inch wheel instead of 14s.
