    New To NPORA Board & Have A/C Question

    if you can't find a kit at any of parts stores try an A/C shop it will probably be quite a bit more but they do the complete install
  6. ?want another project how about an 88 with 94/95 wiring from tailights to headlights 94/95 dash and inst, cluster, all ready for a 3.3 it also needs a tranny, MaMa says only 1 so I'm keeping the white 88 5spd and she has her 95.6 mos ago I had 4 pathys sitting around here
  7. or pull the fan and the shroud, makes it easier to remove the hose clamps and gives you a lot more room

    Complete fuel sending unit?

    if you weren't so far I'd go down to pickapart and pull one for you, I've got 4 or 5 of them within about 30 miles of me

    you could try disconnecting the upper and lower hoses and see what kind of flow you get thru the rad with a water hose. or pull the rad and take it to a radiator shop and have them check it

    Rear hatch defroster

    unless they have changed, the defroster lines are like a paint,there are repair kits but mainly for broken sections.your best bet is find one at pick and pull, if you have volt ohm meter check at the male spades at the top of the glass if you have continuity all the lines are good

    side glass on a 2door

    its hell getting old; I just remembered I have a 88 Nissan Truck and Pathfinder manual all I had to do was look at page BF 38
  12. vagabond

    side glass on a 2door

    has anyone replaced the rear side glass on a 2door I know it's bolted and probably glued with some type of adhesive
  13. vagabond

    motor mount

  14. vagabond

    Changing auto tranny fluid?

    on my 88 1 exploder cooler. my rad cooler is still connected but I'm running a inline tranny filter from NAPA and I'm running a tranny temp gauge no probs at almost 400,000 miles
  15. when I did mine I used parts from a 2000 exterra the angled oil filter mount a/c bracket and ps bracket, crank pulley. I think I posted all I did to mine including a 95 dash and main wiring from taillights to headlights plus the smaller harnesses
