Hello Folks, This is my first time posting as I recently bought my first WD21 and haven't had time to post an Intro or anything yet. I have an '88 WD21 acquired about a month ago, I've put a 2.5" lift on using Rough Country UCAs & shocks (for now), Swayaway bars and JGC springs. I got all my parts together to do a 2WD steering setup, and the Moog center link has a multi-piece design with a strangely-fitted hollow rod crimped to two solid outer portions. To me, this looks like a very bad design and a terrible way to save a few dollars on production costs. So I ordered an AC Delco CL (same part, different box) from another source, wanting to try my luck and see if I could get an older stock version that is monolithic all the way through. Negative - the Delco part is the same deal. Both parts are 555 Japan parts, by the way. Does anyone have any experience with this style of center links? They just look like two added failure modes to me. I'm pretty frustrated because right now the Pathfinder is held up until I put a new center link in, and I'm running out of time before bad weather and already ran out of time for the start of a new school quarter. I have a new 4WD CL that I was going to return (ordered before I learned about the 2WD setup), but I'm wondering if I should scrap the 2WD swap and just install the 4WD stuff instead to get the Pathfinder back on the road. If anyone who has experience with this swap or this style of center link has any strong feelings about the matter, please chime in! I can try ordering a different cheaper brand of center link with hopes of it being solid/monolithic. I really like the 555/Moog stuff but this is a major let-down.

Flamemaster66 posted a topic in 96-2004 R50 PathfindersI have read many threads on engine swaps but I'm wondering if you were to get a donor 2001 and used the engine, transmission, ECM and even the dash , would it be almost a plug and play without modifications ?
TBI to MPFI
Lambchops25 posted a topic in 86.5-89 WD21 PathfindersI'm having a hard time finding any information on this. I have a 1988 Pathfinder 4x4 5spd that runs terrible. I've had nothing but trouble with the stock TBI since I've owned it, and I would much rather have MPFI. I have an opportunity to buy a 1993 Pathfinder 4x4 auto. I prefer the 2 door and 5spd over the 4 door auto. I would like to swap the VG30e from the 93 over to the 88. Has anybody done this, and what is involved? Is it as simple as swapping the engine and wiring harness, (and computer)? If the O2 sensors are different, can I swap the exhaust too? I believe the TBI engine bottom end is still ok, is it better/easier to just swap the intake and related parts? I thought I saw something about having to shorten the intake studs if I do this. I do like the idea of swapping to an entire engine that I know runs good. Does anyone know where I can find a write up of any of this being done? I need all the Information I can get. Thanks for your help.
