General Comments:

I have a 84' Nissan 720 long bed. It has a SD23 diesel.

Engine. SD23 not SD22. Here in the Philippines back.

In 80's Nissan 720 with SD23 engine is popular. It's.

The same as SD22 but the stroke and valves is a.

Little bit bigger on SD23. The simple OHV 8-valve.

73hp engine is so basic, but surprisingly the small.

Displacement will give you ample of torque at a wide.

Range of RPM. Reliability? SD22, 23 and 25 are also.

Used on marine and industrial application like.

Fishing boats, small gensets and fork lifters. You.

Know when Japanese make engines, you know it's.

Bulletproof. I am an owner of a 720 for 24 years.

Going here and there, hauling this and that, years of.

Punishing use, I am still happy and impressed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
