Been pretty quite in here for the past while.

Just sayin.

Yeah, it is. I'm still working on my 720 with the smoke issue, I disassembled, honed one cylinder, and reassembled, but I put one connecting rod cap in the wrong way. The motor turned over fine by hand but the first time I cranked it with the starter it locked right up. The cap and crank were both galled. I really don't want to put any more work into this motor, seeing as how many problems it has given me so far, so I'm contemplating if I want to do an engine swap or junk/part out the truck. The body is rather rusty. I'm really kicking myself.

That's kinda crappy news. How bad is it "galled" ? Any way you can get it polished out ?

A bunch of metal got smoosh around here: https://i.imgur.com/3ubXw2e.jpg

I have another crank that just has a bit of surface rust and would be easy enough to fix up, but... I never conclusively fixed the smoking issue, and at the rate of carbon buildup I doubt it would've made it more than 10k miles. car-part.com has a bunch of Z22/24s around but the closest diesel is 1000 miles away and not cheap.

Not sure where you are but perhaps check some marinas. They may have an old CN4-33 lying around. It's the same thing.

Just a thought
