  1. You have to torque the bearing down to spec, loosen, them make it hand tight.
  2. Two screws on the throttle body. One is horizontal and controls the base idle, you can adjust it easily with the truck running. There is also the fast idle screw, It points upwards at an angle and controls the idle speed before the truck is warmed up. You have to push a screw driver into it hard enough that it opens the butterfly valve pretty wide to get it to turn, otherwise you can't get the screw driver on it without removing the air filter housing because the angle it points at with the throttle body valve closed. Adjust it with the truck cold and off, then start the truck and see if it's where you want it. Rinse and repeat till satisfied. I have mine set around 1100 cold and 800 warm.
  3. Here's the link and some shots with the first prototype on my truck. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15l-NlSyDP_i69i3zcxD7mja0w7wJcLhy?usp=sharing My printing skills aren't the best so it turned out not so well first try, but a professional could probably make a nice one. Here's what it looks like on the truck. https://imgur.com/a/JhC1wid
  4. Take a look at your rear control arm bushings. When they get really worn it can make driving in a straight line difficult.
  5. The full Rough Country D21 lift kit fits. You'll be tossing the shackles and have to buy coil springs separately, but the shocks do just fine. I've been running them for 3 months now and put maybe 5000 miles on them without issue on 3 inches of suspension lift.
  6. Check the lower control arm compression rod mounts on the frame. They wallow out the metal. Easily fixed (but a pain in the ass) if you own a welder. I've never really had a hard time finding any part in store or online or through junk yard for my 1989. Look up "fS5R30A TSB", it's for the transmission info. There is a picture of the drain plugs to compare. Unless they had the trans case replaced at some point, it will have the lower fill plug that won't fill it enough. To see if it's had the proper amount of oil with the lower fill hole, just pull the fill plug and if a quart of trans oil comes out they had it filled correctly. To fill it, easiest way is to remove the shifter and fill it to what the TSB says. I think it's 5.1 liters
  7. For future readers, TBI injectors should be around 1.5 ohms. I've tested good injectors at 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 values in the past. The 1.3ohm died a year later after lots of aggressive driving. I had a bad one that was only 0.9 as well. Always check that first if you suspect a fuel problem, the connector is right on top and super easy to reach.
  8. Not a whole lot you can do but you can definitely get some more from it. Here's a build someone did to give you some ideas. https://motoiq.com/category/projects/nissan/pathfinder/ *merged posts -RedPath88
  9. My moon roof glass broke and I need a replacement for my 1989 pathfinder before the monsoon season starts. I'd also like to pick up a spare set of doors to modify into half doors. Although there are a ton of wd21's in scrap yards around me, none of tem are two door pathfinders. I've seen some pathfinders with the removable sun roofs (don't remember what generation) but they looked like they were larger. Are there any wd21's or d21's with the same size sunroof? Are there any pathfinder or pickup doors that are the same size as the 86'-89 pathy's? Thought I read somewhere that the tw doors had longer doors than the 4 doors.
  10. Anyone know exactly where the power for the dome lights in the back seats and cargo area run to? I got a dome light for the front, from a 4 door and gonna install it, just wondering if I'm gonna have to run more wire to the back or if it passes up near the rear view mirror. Thanks
  11. The internals aren't in the best shape, combined with the old plastic they don't last too long. I'm missing some sort of lock nut, so it needs to be adjusted every couple months for easy opening. That's the driver side at least, the passenger side just broke with no warning. My friend broke it, and she doesn't tend to strong arm things so i think the plastic just saw its time.
  12. Perfect thank you. That washer with the tab is what's screwed on mine im thinking, it's the only one that doesn't want to seat right. Sent from my SM-G360T using Tapatalk
  13. My handles have been busted for about 6 months now, so I think the constant reach around and pulling the inner handle from the outside is what is making them start to go. Sent from my SM-G360T using Tapatalk
  14. The big washer on the driver side doesn't fit flush in the hub anymore like on the passenger side making it hard to get the hub on completely. I'm buying manual hubs tomorrow, do you think this will be a problem? Or do all the moving parts in there get trashed when the manual hubs are installed?
