  1. welcome back.... you're not the only old guy here for sure.... i'm hitting the big 5-0 today.... ho boy.... well... age is just a number... Cheers!

  4. I will chime in...even though I have tried to skip the subject because there is alot of "experts" on facebook and all that have their opinions and people that know me, knows that i'm not a big fan of arguing over a keyboard.. Some would say I lack diplomacy ..but i'll give it a shot Lifting a an ifs front with either stiffer springs or spacers does exactly the same thing to the half-shaft...which is to accentuate the angle.. I have said it many times, the quality of the half-shaft is essential and I am glad that someone actually made some tests and measurements... Thank you !... I have run my first trail pathy hard as I had 2 arb lockers installed on it and I ran at first the ac coils, then my spacers (2.5") and I never had binding in them. mind you they were OEM Nissan... One thing I did was to change the neoprene boots with thermoplastics ones made by rockford...I actually made a post about that explaining how I made them add this boot to their catalog...that's another story.. The only time I broke something with a cv was doing a full send climb, locked all 4 on a steep hill and my right tire got stuck in a rut while having the skinny pedal floored... that ended up in the halfshaft snapping in two.... not the cv joint....the shaft... you can barely hear it at the end :https://photos.smugmug.com/Trail-gazoduc-4-jours-juillet-2010/i-FrTDTBn/0/bf7a4533/640/broken-cv-640.mp4 That being said, I also did limiting straps on my struts in order to prevent too low of a drop..therefore saving the over extension... I have over 1000 kits sold and of course my kits are for the beginner off-roader that don't want to break the bank in order to start...but I have demonstrated that with some modifications (limiting straps, thermoplastic boots and good oem quality half-shaft), you can go a long way. That's all i'm gonna say as I just wanted to share my opinion and experience... I'm sure others will have something to say about this and I will respect that. Bringing a product to market is not an easy thing...there is always some that will say why it is crap and why it will not work or it cost too much etc... All I have to said to you is bravo and keep at it if you believe in it. I'm sure you'll end up with a great kit to sell and i'll be the first one to refer you guys when your kit is ready for primetime. S.
  5. Tks for the feedback.. I have created a poll on FB and I seem to have more answers there... The bolts are the issue right now and that is why I have doing this poll... S.
  6. Hi Guys... I'm in the final stages of a new product development.. and I need your opinion on this...
  7. Welcome and... change your iacv gasket so that you don't blow your ecm... 2$ worth of part to save Alot more.... Cheers. S.
  8. The good news is that you're getting near... after reading a bit and doing some test with my own 01, here's what I think... You're not getting sparks because I think the ecm is not sending spark signal because there is an issue with the NVIS (Nissan Vehicle Immobilizer System).... Doing a test with my 01, when putting the key to the ON position, the security light goes OUT and DOES NOT come back until I either start the truck (which is stays off) or that I remove the key (which is starts blinking every 2.6 sec).... For helping you in your diagnostics, I have include a link for the 2001 fsm.. I have put all the multiple parts in one so it is easier to search for a word.. get it here : https://www.dropbox.com/s/3yfr1qcihir7aso/nissan-pathfinder-2001-full-fsm.pdf?dl=0 Now, I did not find any way to diagnose the NVIS without the consult-II device (nissan oem)... So depending on the results of the diagnostic of this system, you would know if it is related to the NVIS itself or a lack of communication with the ECM... I guess you could confirm with the wiring diagram that the nvis is talking or not with the ecm.. The pages that are in interest for you starts at EL-352. and also you can do a few electric tests for it starting at EL-361... One of the symptoms of it being bad is a : @No start@... I will try to see if I can find something on testing the nvis without having the consult-ii... maybe someone (like a nissan mechanic) can chime in on this... hang in there...you'll get your baby back on the road soon...
