Misfire on VG30I

23 October 2017 - 09:11 AM

Trying to help someone on another forum. He has a Hardbody with the VG30I (88), seems like it has a misfire on number 5 cylinder. He has replaced the plugs, wires, cap and rotor, the number 5 plug has spark when it is removed and placed near the engine. Engine has good compression and timing is correct.


When he removes the number 5 wire while running the RPM's do not change.


Any thoughts on this? Thanks

Looking for a post

25 February 2017 - 07:48 AM

I'm looking for a post that was about former Baja racing trucks, it had a link to a site (trying to find the site), where you could click on the different classes of races and it had old pics of the race trucks and info on the drivers. I thought it was on NPORA but not sure. If anyone remembers seeing such a thread can you link it into this post?



New style H4 headlight plugs I found

25 February 2017 - 07:46 AM

I found these headlight plugs about a week ago online, made by Hella, they are unique as they have 3 spring loaded push button's that you press in than insert the stripped end of a the wire into each hole, the spring (powerful, I could hardly press the button in !), holds the wire in place.

I tried one inserting a 10 gauge wire into one opening, 10 gauge as that is what I rewired my headlights using for the high output bulbs and double relay, it works very good, I also put a bulb into it and it holds onto the bulb terminals very firmly.

They are made out of what looks like that Bakerlite plastic with a composite back ( looks like circuit board material)

Part number is - 001909001 ordered them from Summit Racing and there number is HLA-001909001 they cost $5.46 each

Pic's of the plug below:

May install one tomorrow, will review them after

Infiniti QX4 transfer case shift knob

22 January 2017 - 06:54 PM

Picked up one of these shift knobs  Saturday from junkyard (free). I have a 2wd Hardbody now but it caught my eye being covered with nice black leather. Knob is heavy as hell also, lot heavier than the truck transfer case knob. I'm going to use it as a shift knob for my trans. pic below.
