      I don't want to start a war on Toyota or anything, but it seems like ALL their cars have cooling/head gasket issues.

      hey what's up with that 300zx? I knew it was in some sort of collision, but I wasn't aware it wasn't running. Much less aware that it had been out of commission for some months now.

      I salvaged it from my neighbour who crashed it, then drove it 800 miles to the next province with no front bumper, sucked up water onto the maf and pooched it so he limped it home at 2500 rpm, then he parked it. I completely restored it from the crash and replaced all the missing pieces and she fired right up! still working out a few kinks it runs strong but idles a little high and has a slight miss. checking codes tonight i suspect the o2s are shot and maybe the power transistor unit for...

      Phew just finished grabbing the axle. Had it out in an hour! :)

  4. Picked up a 1993 pathfinder SE with every single damn option available except heated seats. 5 Spd manual and it's an american truck from texas so 100% rust free! Pretty rare up here in BC, canada. Picked it up for the girlfriend as a fixer upper, so far 800$ spent in total including truck and tow and we got almost everything to fix it up. just tune up parts left to go! stoked! we will both have pathys to go wheeling now . :)

      If you don't know when it was last changed, just do a complete fluid exchange and overfill through the shifter hole to ensure proper capacity. http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/2621-manual-transmission-tsb/

      Put on the 31s today, refurbished the rear discs (yes it has rear discs!) I'm jealous.... cleaned it up, swapped power steering pump...no more strong ARM!! Needs tie rods and a center link, and a timing belt kit and she should be good to go! :) I figure 1200-1300 total cost after truck, tow, and all parts, and this will be one nice solid truck!!!

  5. Welded up some proper exhaust hangers for my custom 2.5 inch exhaust today. Now it's in there nice and tight. Also welded up the floor of my sisters Chevette.... one of the front seat bolts tore off bringing a 3x3 piece of sheet metal with it...sigh....

      I know many people love having lockers but my dream would be for an LSD in the front to compliment the rear...LSD can get you out of a lot of trouble...stay calm and carry on :)

      thanks guys. still gettin my hand at fab but it should serve the purpose!

       

  8. Picking up my 1992 Infinity Q45 tomorrow... VH45DE for my z32 and all the chassis bits for my s13... This is going to be a fun couple of weeks. :D Pathy is finally off the road getting ready for lockers and round dash interior swap.

      ??? All you have to do is replace the plastic guides with metal guides per the factory service bulletin. VERY EASY fix. other than that the VH45DE is better in every single way. Plus 330hp 310 lb ft stock power and 400+ with a tune can't really be beat on a fully forged and built/balanced from the factory NA motor.

    3. Tungsten

      Tungsten

      By all means if they have metal guides available go for it.

    4. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      Yeah they are about 60 bucks on ebay. 100 or so from the dealer. I'm sure Alkorahil can hook me up though :)

  9. Feeling like an uber lucky man right now. My other half bought me a 91 pathfinder SE as my college graduation present and it was a total surprise! 1991 SE with LSD, rear discs. The oh so hard to find 4" trailmaster lift, all main suspension bushings done, black exterior with gray interior and its got a sunroof and tire carrier! Oh yeah... it has a completely IMMACULATE frame with ZERO rust that still has its full powdercoat on the frame. Garage kept. Now to swap the VG33E, body li...

      Oh man so nice. I just pulled about 500 miles of driving in the last few days travelling around in over a foot of snow. so epic, i mean really. man its so nice to have some real power in the rig now. i picked up a tow line and hooked it to my rear bumper and was pulling cars up really steep hills and out of ditches for days. so much fun!!!! the house i was staying at is on this crazy steep hill and most trucks could barely make it up and i was towing cars up it!!!...

  11. To stay 15x10 steel or use the 15x8 alloys i just got..... would i really have that much more power/gas mileage????

    1. OldSlowReliable

      OldSlowReliable

      the 15x8's hold a better bead IMO, especially on super low pressures for sand/such. I like my 15x8 with my 33x12.50s alot.

      weld em togher and have 15x18 hybrids!

  12. Nissan Terrano 2.7 turbo diesel for sale just down the road from me... It has a failing auto... Anyone know if the regular pathy auto will bolt up? totally different transmission im guessing? I could get it for 2 grand or less I want to know if I will be able to find a tranny!!

    1. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      only 77k KILOMETERS on the odo... does the regular pathy auto or 5 speed bolt up to the diesel? or would i need to import a transmission??

    2. Slartibartfast

      This is the only pic I could find of a Terry trans: http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/2228240/Nissan+Terrano+(Automatic+Transmission)#imageGallery I dunno what the Pathy transmissions look like though, couldn't find an end-shot in the FSM.

    3. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      hm thanks for that image... i must try and find a transmission code for it...hmmm

       

  13. Installed the oem steering damper pin from Nissan 19$ and used a Monroe shock for 55$ and Lordco hardware for 3$... Grand total of 77$ and wow... Truck feels so much better driving down the road with 33x12.5 and 15x10 steel rims.. Almost feels like a fullsize now haha!

    1. lint

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

    3. lint
  14. Okay... rear of frame modified to move rear steel bumper up 3" to match body lift... Front r50 light guard started cutting apart to make it fit the wd21.. this is gunna look good... straightened the pigtails on some JGC springs.... this is going to be a seriously productive weekend. :D

    1. nunya

      I only have access to a welder for the weekend, I have to get it all done! no excuses! lol

    3. nunya

      nunya

      in that case, burn away! (IM still planning on doing nothing!)

  15. Just picked up a Lincoln Weld-Pak 180HD MIG/flux core combo. Can't wait to do some real burning!

    1. Trogdor636

      Trogdor636

      I'm assuming thats one from Home Depot correct?

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      yeah i just returned it actually as canadian tire had the mig pak 180 on sale for 629, down from the 699 weld pak 180 from home depot. they are both exactly the same in every respect except the mig pak 180 also comes with an extra welding shield the other pack didn't have. so got a hand held welding shield for a friend as well as saved 70 bucks which bought me an auto shading helmet and new gloves/chipping hammer at princess auto. win!!! the 240v plug should be wired up today,...

    3. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      stoked i already had the proper wire run in the house so it just required 27.35$ in electrical parts and a buddy electrician. cheapest part of the whole process so far getting the 240v plug

  16. picked up my wire lock pins for 4.49 for all 4. detachable rear seat mod tonight.:) getting ready for camping!

    1. rwd5021

      rwd5021

      I was gonna do that but I just took the seat bottoms out and called it done. Now I have extra space all the time!

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      haha yeah if you don't use your back seats then that would make the most sense. i on the other hand use my back seats a lot! lol

    3. rwd5021

      rwd5021

      Ya my dogs are the only ones who use my back seat lol.

  17. Successfully replaced and rekeyed my driver and passenger door locks to match my ignition, now just the rear hatch glass and glovebox and i will have one key for my whole truck! finally, the way it should be! :P anyone want a how-to?

    1. Tungsten
    2. Trogdor636

      Trogdor636

      I thought ahardboy had done one but I couldnt find it. I think he switched his 2 cars to one key!

    3. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      I was thinking about doing that as well! I have a 240sx and 300zx, would be nice to have one key for them all. I took pictures along the way, ill do up a how to.

  18. well my lady is officially a pathy driver now! her truck is road worthy after many hours of work and many parts replaced.400$ for truck, 900$ in parts and fluids. truck is near perfect now with zero rust and runs like a dream. fixed up, tuned up and all maintenance done. thanks for the help with my questions everyone! love this forum.

      Just passed emissions testing! With flying colours, I might add! Previous owner failed the test nearly 6 years ago! And it has been sitting for the past 4 or 5 years. This thing is back from the dead. Nox reading was 300% under allowable and HC was 200% under allowable. It's a thing of beaty!

    3. Nefarious
  19. Well, VG33E swap number 2 under way! My other halfs 93 Path SE is up on the chopping block next... Going to be staying a lot more stock with this swap and using Mr.510's crank adapter. Thanks Dave! Will be doing another build thread once all the parts are together!

    1. Trogdor636

      Trogdor636

      He still produces those? He hasn't been on the board in so long I wondered.

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      yup he has an ebay store. he mentioned he was no longer active here. not sure which forums he is on now but i know he still makes them as mine is in the mail!

    3. Wroth

      Wroth

      How did you find it? I looked for one for a month and a half, messaged the ebay store for Mr.510 (Canada based?) and never got a response. I had to go have a local shop make me one, and I ended up getting three since they were so hard to find! 

  20. 33x12.5 Duratracs mounted tomorrow morning WOOOO!!!!

    1. PaMountianbiker

      PaMountianbiker

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      absolutely!!! Getting mounted on 15x10 steels that I custom powdercoated at work. zinc-epoxy primer, then gunmetal, then clearcoat. 3 stage powdercoat! lol

  21. man 16$ for ultra low profile bump stops made a huge difference in my ride. i have down travel again! woo! smoothed out the ride huge on the road.. just some balljoint spacers and upper control arms and i might have some real front flex!

    1. Dowser

      Dowser

      check your PM's. We need an answer. Thanks.

    2. Nefarious

      just got back to ya

  22. ordered my 2wd hardbody swap parts today for a grand total of 105$ after shipping for inner tie rods and center link. just need to hit the junkyard for some sacrificial pathy adjustment sleeves.

    1. Tungsten

      Tungsten

      adding mine right now i'll let you know how it is

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      awesome dude, thanks. looking forward to it!

       

  23. Finally fixed the hinge bushings in my spare tire carrier. Wow what a pain.. upper hinge pin was easy, bottom one took some serious help to get out. Got er all done and no more rattle going over bumps!! Finally opens and closes properly too. It even opens itself once the latch is released! So cool ...

    1. Tungsten

      Tungsten

      Don't forget to add zerk fittings and keep that thing greased.

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      yeah thats not a bad idea. Although it does have the little needle fitting spot, I would be a lot more inclined to do it if I had a zerk on there. lol

  24. Well the crappy aftermarket keyless entry my truck came with just failed and my door locks are all mismatched and broken. yay for no access to my truck. Guess it's time to finally hit the JY and get some locks with a key that works and a compustar or viper installed. Haven't been looking forward to this day. lol

    1. RJSquirrel

      RJSquirrel

      alkorahil set me up with new locks for all the doors/hatch/glovebox for $150. Its really nice to have brand new keys. Send him your VIN.

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      wow thanks for the heads up i will definitely inquire!

       

  25. Picked up a full engine gasket set for 75 bux on ebay, all main gaskets and injectors seals/orings. such a steal. almost ready for winter :)

    1. adamzan

      adamzan

      I would not use an aftermarket rear main seal. The other seals are fine though.

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      yeah it doesnt come with rear main, its still good and i dont plan on pulling the motor or trans until i have to, but it does have the cam seals and front main,
