  1. I tried it. It worked but there was always some bull@!*% to fiddle with. Not as reliable as a factory efan car for sure. The mechanical fan moves more air than a electric will anyways. I went back to the mechanical one after a few months.
  2. Not sure if sfd kits are made anymore but this guy is a member here and makes a lot of parts https://sfcreation.com/
  3. Yup. Mine worked when I bought it but I had to redo it after something hit the condenser. I bought a vacuum pump and set of gauges. It gets down to the low 40s or high 30s. Coldest air of any car I own lol.
  4. This weekend I fired up the 95 for the first time in a while. Noticed an exhaust leak at the header. Turns out I stripped one of the studs in the head during last years install. Luckily one of the "easy" ones so I pulled it and ordered a heli coil kit just in case. Cleaned it out, found a lot of memories from past relationships and road trips. Hopefully I'll have time in the coming weeks to install: New drivers front fender The other 3 speakers Exhaust stud Spare tire carrier bushing set.
  5. Aftermarket parts are SUCH @!*%E these days. It's so hard replacing things on my '95 because you end up returning it 3 times before you get one that fits. My original starter died last summer and they went through 3 units on the tester before I got a good one... Kept the oem one and had it rebuilt at a shop as a spare. Those o2s are a little past their prime lol. I had a 5mpg increase on my 2002 xterra after changing the primaries. Couldn't believe it. Can easily get almost 20mpg on the freeway now driving nicely. Before the thing couldn't go past 15mpg no matter how slow or gingerly you drove it.
  6. That looks like the same one I have. It fit my 1995 just fine. You have to remove one of the plugs to screw in the pressure switch. Idk about you guys but I can't live without the aircon in mine. Black truck with leather seats....
  7. We'll have to meet up soon so I can grab that stuff off of ya.
  8. Discovered my battery is toast. It's not swollen but like the opposite, its all sucked in looking. Was an AGM so that's weird.
  9. Door arm rest. Would also be interested in some other stuff depending on condition lol.
  10. Not sure if it is the same as the wd21 but the wheel speed sensors are only for the ABS. The speed sensor in the transfer case with the gear on it is what drives the speedometer signal.
  11. Honestly it sounds like a broken wire or corrosion on a connector somewhere. It'll be a pain to track down but I'd start inspecting the wiring harness. You can view the 1997 factory service manual here: Nissan Service Manuals - NICOclub
  12. Sounds like the fuel pressure bleeds down and then there is air in the system. This can happen if the little rubber line on the the fuel pump is damaged somehow.
  13. They do last a long time. I retired my 1994 with over 600,000km on it mainly due to rust (Canada). Bought a clean one that "only" had 200,000 on it but no real rust to speak of. You can probably find an ARB bar used, they pop up from time to time.
  14. Put the insurance back on it and gave the interior a good clean. Shocked the 27 year old leather seats still aren't cracked on this thing. Ordered some kilmat for my Xterra and might use the rest on the wd21 if I have enough. Getting old enough that road noise really bother's me lol.
  15. I'll settle for "as long it isn't ripped" these days
  16. If I could get a new armrest for mine I would 100% lay out the cash for it. It bothers me to no end lol. Trying to keep mine as mint as possible.
  17. Well that's always been the case lol. At least over here. Now that I have friends that work at the parts store @!*% is actually in stock. I remember even when these rigs were newer brake pads and @!*% were always special order
  18. Idk, mine has probably been one of the most reliable vehicle's I've owned.
  19. Yes you should change the drier and pull a vacuum on the system before recharging it.
  20. Are the joints noticeably bad? I've always used spicer brand u-joints with little issue. You could take it to a driveline shop to have them changed and they will test that it is balanced, which definitely will solve your vibrations.
  21. Fired it up and discovered mice got into the air intake, and they chewed my AC belt off. Apparently nothing else was touched at least.
  22. The fastest way to get it back on the road is just another VG30 to drop in it. But of course we all want more power. What I would do is the VG33 or the VG34 if you don't mind a little more work (The thread @Slartibartfast linked has the details. Not really anything on this but you can also swap the supercharged VG33 from an Xterra or Frontier into the wd21 as well. May need to modify the hood or do a body lift for that, though.
  23. I don't think they were metal screws from the factory, someone else probably got fed up and put them in there lol.
  24. That's...odd. I don't think the system is smart enough to notice that but I've been wrong before.
