  1. Thanks for the info@Slartibartfast! I ended up getting these right from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N735HZS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_NVAJ428AD0X620V8QCTZ From everything I could tell they'll work out just fine after I cut down the side that threads into the block a bit. Now it's just the issue of extracting the broken studs. Have some screw extractors that will hopefully do the trick without being too much of pain in the ass. Sent from my SM-G998U1 using Tapatalk
  2. Hey gang, I'm replacing exhaust manifolds because of the pesky stud breakage problem, and have run into the wonderful snag of trying to find studs for the exhaust manifold to mount to the head. Anyone have a link to a set? I'm hurting my head trying to read through specs on Amazon. Dorman sent the flange studs when I bought the manifolds, I know those are an m10x1.5 and I know I need an m8×1.25 for the heads, does thread in length to the shoulder of the stud for the side that threads into the head matter that much? I know overall length isn't as important as long as it's long enough to get a nut on. Thanks in advance for any help. Sent from my SM-G998U1 using Tapatalk
  3. @AaronHorrocks interesting, I'll definitely have to look into that and test it. Thanks for the info! Sent from my SM-G998U1 using Tapatalk
  4. An update! Whilst checking plugs this afternoon, I accidentally broke one. This lead to a replacement of all 6, and the realization that my brother had gapped the plugs too short waaaayyyyy back before the covids when I had changed them last... And lo and behold, the issue seems to be resolved. For now! Moral of the story, don't let someone who was probably drunk at the time gap your plugs. There's still an issue of excess arcing in the distributor cap. Which might be the ICM, which I have a new one coming. So Rejoice! I don't have to take my throttle body apart. Just yet at least.

  5. @Slartibartfast Idle varies up and down occasionally but runs smooth, apart from an occasional hiccup where it'll start idling surprisingly low. I'm hoping it's not injectors, from what I found online they're a pretty penny. I'm by no means an expert on throttle bodies, but I checked down the intake while running and they both seemed to be injecting just fine. But then again I can't check them when it's doing the thing, so who knows. Probably will end up taking the throttle body off and cleaning it whenever I have enough time or can get the backup vehicle running again [emoji28] I have a lot of electrical gremlins in my dash that I'm 75% sure are stemming from a bad ground somewhere. So maybe that could be something too? Gotta read through they Haynes book and decipher wiring diagrams eventually. Sent from my SM-G998U1 using Tapatalk
  6. What is up my dude! Welcome! From what I can remember the Terrano is just the overseas name of the Pathfinder for places like Japan and such. But I'm sure someone else probably knows significantly more about that than I do. And also, your rig looks super nice! Always happy to see older vehicles being used to their potential and kept in good shape. Sent from my SM-G998U1 using Tapatalk
  7. @FirstGenFreak I have not checked timing yet. Unfortunately don't have a timing light, but I suppose I can always do top dead center check. Sent from my SM-G998U1 using Tapatalk
  8. Heyoo, anyone have any links to previous discussions or advice on an issue? My 87 pathfinder with vg30i. Having very bad misfiring and sluggish engine at low rpms with high loads. It runs pretty fine and dandy above 2,500 as well as cruising at 2,000. Just can't accelerate without downshifting because of sluggishness and misfiring. Ignition coil was changed less than a year ago, as well as plugs. Wires are fairly new too and the beefier NGKs so I would imagine they're not the issue.. Cap and rotor for the distributor are less than a year old too. Though cap definitely had charring that I've cleaned before and seems to help a bit. Hence me thinking it's ignition, but I don't know what else it might be. Ignition control module? I've checked all the emissions parts, egr and pcv valves are good. No 02 sensor plugged in currently but it was doing fine without it before, and mass air flow was pulled off and cleaned. I haven't tested fuel pump or injectors, but fuel filter is pretty new... Maybe someone knows something else to check? Any advice or links to previous discussions is greatly appreciated. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G998U1 using Tapatalk
  9. Awesome, just downloaded it and set it up. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  10. Anyone have any advice on posting photos from my phone? I suppose I could just get off my ass and set my PC up... but that's a lot of effort
  11. Awesome, tons of info there, thanks so much! I'll keep a thread updated with the process as often as I can. Now to do some reading and see about trying to track down parts, lol
  12. Hey everyone, was hoping to get some good links to info about doing a conversion from throttle body to multipoint on my '87 pathfinder. I guess I should start by asking if it's worth the trouble for better gas mileage/upgradability in the future? Or is just a straight swap to a vg30e or vg33 the better choice? I'm no stranger to working on cars, but I dont exactly have the time/skill/shop to swap an entire engine. But I'd be happy to tear apart a top end to change headers or manifolds if it's worth the effort.
  13. Hey everyone, you might have guessed from the fact that I'm posting in the new members thread, but I'm new! Some basic info if you're curious: Recently new owner of an '87 Pathfinder, SEV6 Offroad. 1 inch body lift, Bilstein Shocks with a rear anti-sway bar deletion. Mile-marker hub locks, and a lockright rear diff. I certainly dont claim to know much about offroading yet, but I'm no idiot when it comes cars overall. I used to drive a '12 Ford Focus, but it doesnt do well offroad, especially when you fall asleep while driving at 4am and end up on a burm behind a guard rail, crushing one of the floor pans and ultimately totalling the vehicle that you still owed $4,000 on... so yeah.
