Looks like it from what I've seen. All except the pully. That would be a nice swap. Can't find one that's been done to a 720.

where did you mount your thermal switch, and what did you get it out of? What circuit did you wire it to?

The switch is an adjustable electric fan switch I got from Amazon. It's aftermarket not from a vehicle. It grounds to chassis and the positive lead connects to a key-hot in the cab. The switch came with a temp sensor that mounts into the radiator fins to tell the fan when to turn on and off.

The vac lines were out of whack when I bought the truck. I don't really have a picture showing factory setup. I have removed quite a few vac lines and plan on removing more later. All I can say is that the truck runs a lot better than when I bought it, but I don't know how that compares to other 720s.

I understand that it's not the factory setup but you still have the Ab valve on it and the vac advance is no longer hooked up plus u also removed the vapor canister I would like to remove those things as well. can post some pics of your setup that you have as of right now? cause my idle isn't to great and your engine bay is so clean i love what you done have with it so far I would like to clean mine up a little bit. thanks
