  1. So I have a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder and the motor is knocking horribly after 352 thousand miles. I heard alot about a VG33 swap to make moar power but I'm unsure as what to swap over. I know everything would connect up and I know the cams from the 30 need to go in the 33 for moar lift and moar power. What else do I need to swap over? I do not wanna get it rebuilt or anything as long as the thing runs. I dont got that money. In regards to the engine swap, What do I need to unbolt from the engine/disconnect. Its a manual 4x4. The list is this so far Fuel return and feed line Witing harness Sensors 13 bolts on transmission Drain and disconnect radiator AC I'm getting rid of Engine mounts Exhaust headers Anything else? Or should I go with another 3.0 and turbo it after everything is complete. Im honestly unsure of what to do. I want to keep my Pathy running for as long as possible.
  2. That helps alot guys! Now where do I install the lockers? I'm def gonna do front lockers but idk how to install them. (Manual hubs are next on my list)
  3. So I have a 1990 WD21 that has an open diff in it and someone said to get some lockers for it. How do I engage the lockers if I wanna go four wheeling Because slowly but surely I am building up my own off-road rig. Also, how would I go about installing manual locking hubs on the front from my autos?
  4. UPDATE EVERYONE. TANNER THE WD21 LIVES. He made it back home and moved under his own power
  5. I believe he said 90 PSI at the end but was reading 60 for a while.
  6. The belt was more floppy than a flag when i took the old one off. i still do have compression but its not as much as before. i am tempted to go t a scrapyard and pull the heads off of another WD21. I followed the cam alignment marks and lined up the crank with the mark on the cam corresponding to the mark on the belt. it turns over and coughs but no running. only thing i can think of is pulling my distributor and re aligning piston one to TDC and dropping it back in with the rotor facing to cylinder one. lots of fuel but no boom
  7. So I bought a rejected and abandoned WD21 Pathfinder in May and I named him Tanner. Tanner has been through hell and highwaters when it comes to everything since he had 345 thousand miles on him when I bought him. He is my first car ever and I love the truck to death. But recently I was on my way to pick up my girlfriend and Tanner broke down. Hard. As I was going uphill he started backfiring so badly (sounded like Anti Lag or two step loud) and I lost all power. I tried turning him over and all he did was backfire I managed to back my way partially downhill and spin him around. I did and I popped the clutch and he fired right back up but as soon as I stepped on the gas, boom dead. I found out that my distributor was gone and I thought it initially was the timing belt. I replaced the timing belt and distributor but the sad thing is, none of it fixed him. He's been sitting in the apartment complex I live in for two weeks now and already inpounded once. I am so desperate for help right now. I got a mobile mechanic to come look at it and he almost ran after I corrected distributor wiring but he didn't. I want my pathy back and running as when I do, I plan on giving him to my girlfriend as her first car. I need help on what to do. I wanna swap a supercharged VG33 into it from an Xterra to make more power. I know it may sound silly of me to want to keep him running but he holds special value since he's my first car, first stickshift I ever drove, first car my girlfriend ever drove, and it conquered Devil's Canyon on mount Evans forwtbtey no problem with an offroading noob. I wouldn't care of he died at 200K but 350K is honerable and he deserves to keep living as he also has zero rust on the chassis's. Thanks for anybody reading this post.
