    Need to fix my AC

    Does the AC clutch engage when you turn the AC on? May just be low on freon.

    I always recommend OSC radiators from Rockauto, they seem to be a good part

    Tilt steering column covers

    painting one would be an option too I guess. Mine cracked on the top, I think it was due to the wiper switch I used when I did the variable wiper swap rubbing against the top/

    Tilt steering column covers

    Thanks, after 93 the covers are different because after 93 the trucks went to the round dash

    Xterra tranny question

    Anyone know if a 4x4 Xterra trans can be used in a 2wd Xterra? Are they the same other than the tail shaft part? Thanks

    Late X-mas present from my wife

    My wife bought this for me today, late X-mas present, had to raise the shelf above it so the lid would open. after 2 coats of wax ! have to keep it looking good. LOL front view, nice and shiny !:
  10. Very nice step by step with the pictures ! I guess you have a body lift as the upper radiator brackets are upside down, did the same on my former 87 Hardbody with the body lift. A member on Infamous forum is swapping a VG33 into his Hardbody and discovered most of the JDM VG33's that are for sale have the alternator on the pass. side, he wanted to keep his on the drivers side, where it is on the VG30, but he found the oil filter bracket was too thick and it would not allow the alternator to clear , so he replaced the oil filter mount with one from a frontier, it is thinner and allows the alternator to bolt up and clear. A tip when removing the hood and getting it to re align is to drill a hole through the mount into the hood on each mount, than when reinstalling use a drill bit to line up the hole in the mount into the hole in the hood, once the drill bit is through both holes you know it is in the same location it was before being removed.

    Misfire on VG30I

    He said he figured it out and it no longer has a misfire. He said he pulled the TB and the gasket was all tore up

    Misfire on VG30I

    he said he doesn't remember what the old plug looked like. He also posted a video of doing the compression test on #5 cylinder. I told him to get a new gauge because there is no way the reading he is getting is correct, he is showing 210 PSI, The service manual shows a new engine should be at 173 PSI.

    Misfire on VG30I

    he said he pulled the valve cover today and everything is moving the way it should.

    Misfire on VG30I

    Weird that the plug has spark when pulled and held next to the engine but doesn't effect the idle when the plug wire is removed from the plug while running
