  1. I just now remembered that i read somewhere, maybe the Nicoclub S13 forums, that the orientation of the hole on the end of the squirter needs to be pointed up towards the head, like the one in your picture.
  2. This is the one I used a while ago when replacing the timing set on my KA24E(single cam) D21 pickup. I wrapped a shop rag around the existing one and rolled it slowly side to side with some channel locks until it came out. The new one can be lightly tapped back in place. I'm not sure about all the differences with the KA motors, their interchangeability, applications and such. I know there are little differences here and there for Japanese manufactured blocks vs. Mexican Manufactured ones.

  4. Nissan seal is on the left. The Fel Pro is on the right(as you are viewing the picture). The Nissan one is slightly less deep than the Fel Pro one. Got it installed and driven about 15 miles for a test run/ milkshake for the kid. No apparent leaks. She's getting good at not spilling during high speed turns haha.
  5. Your pictures reminded me of when I was trying around with the idea of deleting the front bumper and having someone mold a lower lip. I always thought it would be nice to get rid of the ZX bumpers. Yours is a lot less rusty and beat up than mine. Haha. Looks nice. Ga zo door! Sent from my Coolpad 3310A using Tapatalk
  6. Are the "P" series harder than the "A" series?
  7. Looks right. The part number seems to be used on a number of motors. I cross referenced and it shows a range of engines that use that seal. So I think I'm good to order it. I appreciate you looking into it for me. Sent from my Coolpad 3310A using Tapatalk
  8. Amazon is showing the part number 1 12279-2B500 is for the RB motors. I'm guessing they are the same? I'll order it through Amazon and get it cheaper and faster than through the dealer, and I don't have to sit in 45 minutes of traffic. Sent from my Coolpad 3310A using Tapatalk
  9. Many thanks! Sent from my Coolpad 3310A using Tapatalk
  10. Do any of you guys know the part number for the Nissan OEM rear main seal? The dealership parts counter guy shows 2 part numbers with no drawings. He's probably just being lazy. I'd like to just walk in with the correct part number and say "here, order this". I'm either too incompetent to operate the search function or it doesn't work on my phone with Tapatalk. Thanks.

  11. I'm not entirely out of the weeds. Whatever oil consumption issue I had, wether it be throughout the combustion process, or the PCV system is totally gone. However, today I observed the oil level too low after another few hundred miles. According to the dipstick, after letting the hot engine sit about 30 min, about a half quart is gone. I looked around underneath and discovered a bit of oil seeping down the bottom of the transmission that I hadn't seen until now. So, being the reasonable person without a problem that I am, I got whatever inconvenient equipment that was in the way out, and discovered that the rear main leaks pretty good. It's a Fel-Pro. Looks like I'll be stopping in by the Nissan dealer on the way home from work tomorrow. One thing I didn't do, and it's no one's fault but my own, is install the trans to block brackets that came with the motor. Not sure if they are for structural support, but I'll be installing them this time. Sent from my Coolpad 3310A using Tapatalk
  12. I don't have anything to offer that hasn't already been stated, but wouldn't a leak down test pinpoint the issue? Perhaps a hiss out of the intake or exhaust.
  13. Seems like I remember pulling the CHTS connector off some time ago for some troubleshooting that I can't remember. It would idle, but as soon as I revved it, it would die. Sent from my Coolpad 3310A using Tapatalk
  14. Who would have thought that the tools to keep a Z's rust habits at Bay could be learned keeping the rust off of the hull of a Navy ship. At least one doesn't have to go over the side or climb down an anchor chain to get a coat of paint on the Z. Sent from my Coolpad 3310A using Tapatalk
