They have a single EI module with two outputs for two coils. It's mounted under the rotor.

Well there you have it.

FSM say to never reuse. What I do is put in a sandwich bag to keep them dry hold them up in a pan of boiling hot water. They are more pliable when warm and soft. The clamp will squeeze them better.

I misunderstood. Yes J13 and transmission in a 320. Definitely try it. The transmission should be 26" so measure yours and see if the drive shaft needs modding. Another combination would be the A series and transmission from a B-210 or 210. Good power and size.

320.... is that an E series engine? Doubtful J would fit E or others would have said something. I think the '68 J transmission will be 26" long.

This is kinda sad.

Partridge family was one of many shows RW liked as a junior.

 

I liked Shirley Jones, a milf before her time, but David just didn't do it for me. The music was pure Monkees.




#1530822 78 620, L20B foreign matter in combustion chamber.

Posted by datzenmike on 22 November 2017 - 07:54 AM

There's no correct way just the way most set theirs up. 180 out isn't 'correct' but works perfectly. There are 40 possible positions with 4 working perfectly at 90 degree increments and possible a tooth on either side that still allows timing adjustment. This can be done to turn the module away from exhaust heat or spin the vacuum advance around or to move the distributor to get adjustment on one of 6 ? different timing plates.  I have a modified Z24 timing plate on my '79 matchbox.

The point is that it was running like this, so nothing has been changed and it will start and run as before.




#1530802 New 720 Owner in Need of Help with High Idle

Posted by datzenmike on 22 November 2017 - 06:11 AM

Post directly above yours has several causes..

 

Add to it...

 

choke not shutting off. warm engine and take top off air filter and look. Choke plate should be vertical and fully open.

throttle cable too tight loosen nut and adjust

Idle speed screw turned in too far. turn screw outward to reduce

 

 

Fast idle possible causes... (other than the idle speed screw and a tight throttle cable)

 

 

Fast idle cam stuck in an on position even though the choke is fully off. inspect, spray with carb cleaner or WD 40, hold throttle half open and work linkage by hand moving through the range of motion to loosen. Plastic fast idle cam should be free to move

BCDD set too sensitive and not shutting off at idle. turn adjustment counter clockwise to reduce sensitivity

Secondary throttle plate stuck cracked open slightly.(had this once) Possibly a foreign object like a piece of the air filter caught in the butterfly. inspect visually with flashlight

Vacuum secondary linkage stuck or jammed. inspect visually, use carb cleaner, hold throttle half open and loosen linkage.

#1530723 z24 motor

Posted by datzenmike on 21 November 2017 - 04:49 PM

If you intend to run it as a Z24 you will need

 

The engine brackets from the 720 and maybe having the rubbermounts as well won't hurt either.

 

A Z series 5 speed. L and Z series engines are about 18-20 degrees differently tilted. The Z series engine is way over to the left side and will try to twist the transmission over to the left shoving the shifter into your hip. The rubber mounts will fight each other and tear out. If you modify the transmission cross member to properly allow for the twist the L series transmission could work tilted. Bend the shifter and perhaps modify the hole in the floor. If you can only find a broken Z series transmission the front Z case can be swapped for the L series front case to convert it. All Z24s used a 240mm clutch so grab the release bearing collar or keep it if you keep the Z transmission. The collar is matched to the 240mm clutch. If it's an automatic you could put your L20B flywheel and clutch on and use your 620 collar. Just remember to keep the collar with the clutch it's mated to.

 

Is this '86 fuel injected??? Does the engine plate (on passenger side inner fender below the hood hinge) say Z24i???? this will be a lot more work than a carb Z24. I'll assume this is is a carb Z24

 

I don't know if the 720 rad will fit a 620 rad support, unlikely, so you will need to get a hose and pipe connection to the left side of your L series rad. The bottom will be so close it won't matter.

 

The 720 alternator is much larger than the 620 because it has more room. I would try putting the 620 alternator on the Z24 engine.

 

You will need two 720 coils or two '78 or newer 620 coils for the ignition. The 720 uses dual plugs per cylinder and an EI ignition so some wiring needs doing. Totally do able... I did it.

 

Install a much longer 720 throttle cable.

 

You will need to graft the Z24 exhaust down pipe to your exhaust. The 720 down pipe to the cat might just fit the 620.

 

The Z24 does not have a mechanical fuel pump, so get the electric one from the 720 OR drill and hog out a hole for the L series pump arm. The mounting bolts are still there and used for things like power steering pump mount that you won't be needing. the fuel line to the Z24 carb is up from under the middle of the Z intake and the fitting has the return line right on it.

 

Keep in mind that this is a later KA24E head but Z24 is similar. Has stud holes already threaded so drill hole....

And hog it out large enough for the L series mechanical fuel pump. You will need to put an L series fuel pump excentric on the front of the Z24 cam sprocket.
