1st, I would change the topic title to 'New 620!'
Then I'd run out and get a can of Marvel Mystery oil or a quart of Lucas in addition to your favorite oil. Do NOT use any motor or tranny flush because the truck has been sitting too long. You'll do more harm than good. I have helped start and run Datsun engines that have sat 15, 16, & 19 years. They are bulletproof unless you screw it up. For now, I suggest a new battery, a high torque starter, and a very good tune up including valves adjusted to specs. Tuned right it will run like a sewing machine even as low as 120psi. Run it till you're able to fund a total rebuild or until you find a replacement engine.

Yeah first thing is first clean every inch of that truck.  Polish the paint best you can and then give it an all over tune up, brakes, fluids, the whole nine yards.  Im sure some bugs will work their way up, they always do after one sits for so long. Just remember to document the whole process and post pics here.  Welcome to the forum, get with rusty for some free stickers.

Maybe just a stubborn set of rings? Might consider pulling the piston and seeing the condition of the rings? Or if you pull the head and you see scars in the cylinder walls you know it's time for a visit from the dingle berry!

Alright so... update. I spent around 10 hours yesterday straight grinding out the interior. woo so sore. Pictures will come after this post. Also I dont recall If I mentioned but there was a leak from the PCV hose the part where it connects from the hose coming off the pcv valve to the hard pipe. I replaced the hose from the hard pipe to a free line to a can. As per suggestion from my father. It was leaking a bit of oil and smoking. I assume from the 4th cylinder. The only problem is when stopped at a stop light or sign smoke piles out of the engine and is pretty awkward. (not as bad as my old supra with the blown head gasket haha years ago) 
So right now pcv valve is blocked and pipe goes to can. smokes very bad.  exhaust smokes pretty bad going up hills or really anytime i am accelerating. 
Any suggestions for this? I am looking for a new block right now and might have one lined up. 

NOW for the pictures and RUST YAY

First off, you're making GREAT progress! Next, that last picture is awesome!
Real grunt work happening to the floor, looks great!

I always make sure my pcv valve is functioning properly, (shake test usually). I wonder if you have oil in the intake runner where the pcv is screwed into?

Thankyou Thankyou.
Lots of work indeed but I live for this!
The pcv valve was functional. Got a new one anyway.
I think someone put the wrong kind of hose resulting in a leak.
I have the right hose on order should be here in a couple days and I
assume less smoke from the engine compartment but I still will have the
exhaust smoke when I apply gas until I get a new block or decide to dive into that thing. 
For now I would rather just work on the body and then engine.

I always say I'd rather buy a good body and have a bad engine... Engine work is always cheaper! I'm subscribed!

Are you doing a disc brake conversion?

Nice job on the floor.
A quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer should reduce or resolve the smoking issue.
Keep up the good work.
Look on the Stickers thread, Rusty will hook u up.
