Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Well I got the valve covers back on with new gaskets. Annoyingly enough, when I put the coil packs back on, I pressed on the connector housing. And it snapped. :( Don't press on the connector housing. Coils from 90-95 Infiniti Q45s fit, but they're super expensive. Ebay is a better option, all 6 for...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

What a motherfucker! The crank gear was a bitch. I originally only drilled and tapped two holes in it, tried to pull it off, wasn't having it. Bolts kept bending, didn't get it quite on straight for the holes. Anyway, ended up cutting the gear on top of the key way with a die grinder, then a Christm...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Damn, got too late, decided my efforts would be better inside cleaning out our equipment room so it can be a workout room once more. I'll probably have some time off this next week if it's still slow, I'll get to it then.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Think I probably should also yank off a rod bearing cap or two while I have the pan off and check the condition of the rod bearings. I'm a little annoyed I turned it over so much without having oil pressure. Pump lost prime from sitting, even with full pan. It's probably fine, especially with no loa...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Yep, already ordered a bunch from FRsport.com Found Raw Brokerage in Florida to be quite helpful as well. Couldn't find any recent posts on being reputable or not, but sent me the two plates for the cam gear I wanted fairly quickly via USPS, so that was nice. No one had the oil pan gasket though. Th...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So the only part I'm waiting on now is the oil pan gasket, which had to be ordered from Japan. Boo. But I did find the rubber grommets for the timing cover, part no. (13524-D0113) or 2 on the end depending are a pain in the ass to get and expensive anyway. So after testing some things, looks like I ...

Re: AWD for the hardbody

It has a rear locker, which does tend to cause understeer initially, then oversteer. I've gotten used to it, but the truck is so long with the extended cab, it makes it less desirable in winter. A WD21 or standard cab hardbody with shorter wheelbase does quite a bit better for turning. Don't get me ...

AWD for the hardbody

So here's something I actually want to do: Equip the hardbody 4x4 with a center differential of sorts to allow for better turning when 4wd is engaged. For regular wheeling, it's not a problem, but ice in the winter and I kick it out of 4x4 for tight turns, then back in once the turn is navigated. It...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Yeah I started reading up on that, the crank sprocket is slightly thicker on the CA oddly. Like 3 mm. Either way, have all parts coming. I like your idea of drilling tapping. Think I'll do that and make a puller, that ought to work nicely. I don't even really need to do anything, no signs of leakage...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So the MAF connector from 05 and 06 Sentras with QG18DE didn't work, they have smaller pin sizes. BUT the '04 Sentra MAF sensor connector works! It has 5 wires, just have to omit one. Slight ohms difference on the temperature sensor I picked up, but I think its close enough to be the same. Actually,...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Ok, haven't verified the temp sensor yet, but I did find 2002-2006 Nissan Sentra QG1.8 MAF connector will likely work for the RB20 MAF connector. I'll go to pull and save tomorrow and get one to try.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

I may pop a plug or two and see how it looks. I don't disagree, just really wanted to put shit on and go. Bah. Fuck this shit for now, I'm going to go eat. Found VG30 thermostat and RB are the same, and I got a temperature switch from a 2001 Frontier that appears to be the same as the broken one. Ju...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Got the garage nice and toasty today, ended up getting it torn down to the point of happiness. Have new parts to put on after some cleaning. The cams don't move much but I made a tool anyway, so yeah, I'm Batman! ;) Not that thrilled with the water jacket being full of rust sludge. I smooshed it and...

Re: No more Canby :(

I agree, the cheapness does come into play. I'm totally willing to spend $100 for a weekend of Datsun fun. Then you have to figure another 100 or more for things you want to buy while there. And the first few Canbys with the ratsun crew were great, in '09, but I remember having to tell people to shu...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Got the oil pan back today. Made a 1" section out of the back, hopefully should clear the crossmember. I suspect I'm going to have to modify the pickup, but we'll see. The dogs went with me to Walgreens to get some cold medicine for the wife. ;) https://i.postimg.cc/gkKZ9zFb/oilpan1.jpg https://i.po...
