    Bled the clutch. Only took about 3 hours -_- ducking annoying but works now and everything is golden. Gonna draw up some plans for the tire table.

    Nah I have loose d rings that swivel up and down. The wd21 has the same kind of d ring on the floor of the cargo area. Though if I had some eye bolts I would have probably went that route instead.

    I've dipped them in flex seal so when they are not being used the banging and rattling around is less. Same idea as the rubber grommets (though much thicker than my flex seal coating) people put on their D rings on their bumpers. I can post a write up and some pictures though honestly I'd be suprised if anyone would want to copy my plans since they will be fairly crude and done with some scrap metal I have laying around. Got the slave and master cylinder installed before leaving to work. Once I get back on Friday going to add fluid, bleed and tighten as necessary

    Anyone else have the problem between work, weather and the old lady you cant get a damn thing done on your truck? Trying to get things started and finished within an hour these days. Master and slave cylinder are pulled off and new ones ready to go in. Gotta wait for tomorrow morning to wake up earlier just to finish the damn job that should be done tonight. Been dipping d rings in flex seal that I plan to mount in the cargo area along the side walls to tie down ice chest and camping @!*%. Traced out tire carrier on cardboard to finally make my damn table. All of this is on back burner, next weekend is the old lady's birthday -_- this is why summer is better, good weather and longer days to work

    Decided to show around here finally, threw some fluid in the master cylinder so I can get around to do laundry. Pulled a few people out with it. Parts are In so time to get busy after work.

    Good to know, I'll remember that when looking into a replacement parts in the future. Got stereo working and since I've never had it work before today was the day I realized I only have 2 speakers. I dont plan on going crazy with a sound system at this point but having 4 speakers is something I'd like especially since I have 2 extras laying around (nothing special). Thing is I have 4 speaker wires so I'm curious to where those are leading to. Not the passenger doors I know that much. Gathered more bits and parts for upcoming projects like adding D rings to the sides in the back to tie down an ice chest and what not

    Stealership is called stealership for a reason, we all know why and have our stories. I might call them and get a price for OEM to see if it's worth it but odds are I'll just get an aftermarket. Like I said it's just a hydraulic cylinder. How bad can you mess it up? Lol

    They are super cheap and something I've been considering doing. As for how well the aftermarket ones are built I'd be interested if you adamzam had any suggestions for the better brands or if your opinion is they all suck and for what reasons. I'd prefer not to buy a slave I can get for I think k ifs 12 dollars max (could be remembering wrong obviously) on RA for 35$ from stealership. I mean it's just a cylinder after all, not a lot to go wrong if at least one company is using good parts. While waiting for parts tore apart the dash to check out the guess job wiring P/O did for the stereo. Wasnt as messed up as I had thought it was originally. The deck is ruined (and refuses to turn off no matter what you do aside from cut power wire from it completely) but I have a new one I got for free anyways. Amp either isnt wired correctly or is ruined as well. New deck wouldnt play through amp, only played when I bypassed it on a seperate speaker. Gonna have to check more wiring and hopefully not have to get a new amp or tear apart doors to check speakers. I mean come on though, all 4 speakers being completely gone along with the deck itself? That would be beyond shocking. Upcoming projects I'm announcing to get myself in gear more or less to hold myself to, build a fold down table on the tire carrier for camping and jerry can holder (for possible Alaska trip in the summer). Get that damn temperature guage to work and realign/level the truck. Realistically not a lot to do if I were more motivated and closer to the majority of my tools.

    Cylinder on the clutch went out. I'm thinking it's the master since I can see where something has leaked around the firewall of it. Carpet dry though. Checked slave and seemed fine but who knows. Once master is swapped we will see for sure. Bummer

    Drove the 92 to the city and got it up to 100+ mph surprisingly without having to floor it. Speedo maxed out on the double lanes. Thought I'd only be able to do that on a downhill..still didnt make it to pick and pull in time lol

    Wd21 woth a 2wd 4wd r50 steering setup and moog parts. I have zerks on my UCAs, upper and lower bj, tie rod ends, centerlink idlers arm side and a few other places I cant recall off hand. All are aftermarket parts.
  12. Charlie_Brown

    What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

    Regressed all the zerks on the front end for steering and suspension. Passenger upper ball joint boot is torn. I guess it's not extremely surprising since the zerk stripped out and never worked quite correctly after but still annoying. Greased it anyways. Tightened more random bolts. Just kinda waiting around for some more snow

    That's the plan. Gonna go under the truck with a pressure washer and some heavy degreaser and take all the gunk and grime off the underbelly to expose nice paint (and probably a fair amount of rust most likely). I'm tired of the underside being dirty and with this oil leak just another reason to do so. If I was ready to bedline the truck I'd use some oven cleaner under it. Side note exhaust is rattling itself apart again. Time to go tighten bolts in the damn rain (&^%*ing hate working on this truck in winter)

    Took it up to Tahoe for Thanksgiving, it had seafoam in the oil so maybe just because it was warm and thinner due to the sea foam it was leaking oil faster than normal but still annoyong. Changed the oil out this morning and looked around at the pan. Cant really see well enough around the diff to see anything coming down from there. Seems like it's coming from the back by the sump but cant be sure. Put some cardboard under it so see where the drips are coming from exactly. Just one more reason to get the SAS underway even faster -apologies for any spelling errors or other autocorrects making sentences wonky

    What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

    The problem with it is it's too damn long so you cant bend it a bit to twist it like the vg30 which makes it just that damn much harder. Unless you drop the diff (on a wd21 st least) and pound it through that side I'm convinced the only thing you can do is beat the crap out of it with a flat bar and pry it up. Heating doesnt seem to change anything and sticking it back in freezing the tube and lubing it doesnt really change much either. A flat dipstick would be a preferable swap in my opinion. I like them better than the wire and weight but either work
