  1. the big positive terminal cable was an issue for me as well, seems it has a lead connector for the battery side that got corroded (didn't know lead corrodes!). I found that after replacing the starter in an unnatural position (I felt like working in a Circus and had to crawl through a small circle). My advice: don't replace the starter before checking it's connections. It can save you a lot of hassle and time.
  2. have you tried the below explained method? It's the same chassis. http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/25794-ride-height/
  3. I saw some swaps on youtube with the vw 1.6 TD engine in toyotas but no nissans, though I've looked extensively. my truck is powered by the 2.7TD it was born with, I'm happy with it for now and for us here in Eastern Europe it's a very common engine, easily found in WD21, R20, R50. I tought the newer Pathfinder/Terrano models came in your markets with diesels too -thus making the swap a bolt on. coming back to your question: I'd look for an old Audi, with the VW 1.6TD and a manual gearbox, that you can mount on your chassis and connect to some transfer case (from Suzuki or Mitsubishi maybe?), this way you get the gearbox final drive set for on-road driving and the transfer case reductions for off-road. what's the ratio you have in your diffs now? My standard 2.7 came with 4.625, with the solid H233b in the back.
  4. I haven't heard about it so far, and I see a reason why: a small 4 cyl IDI diesel engine producing ~70 bhp for a 2 ton non-aerodynamic truck will be a traffic killer. what other options do you have? maybe a 2.5L V6 TDI engine from VW/Audi looks better on paper, if you're into the economy and torque. Or you could just go classic and put in the bolt on 2.7 Nissan turbo-diesel
  5. Hello everyone, my name is Mihai, i'm from Eastern Europe, Romania - Bucharest, owning a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder 2.7 TurboDiesel for a bit over 6 months now. I will share more on this vehicle in the specific area for these old machines. Glad to be here!
