Very informative. Looking forward to the updates.
Absolutely, go for it.There is lots of interesting info in this thread. Do I have a vote on making it into a sticky? If so, OP needs to come up with a new thread title (mods can change that)
Thanks. And to answer your question, yes. The preventative maintenance will probably get you at least as far as the motor I had to pull out got to, 215K. I think given my knowledge of the previous owner who is one of my wife's very close friends, I consider the fact that it got to 215 a slight miracle in itself.Hats off to the OP. :29: Hope it works out fine.
Definitely a huge undertaking. Something I don't want to be contemplating in attempting until I reach 200K + miles on my MO. Isn't it the reason we do all the preventive/over maintenance to avoid just this?
Good luck dude.
You can purchase the manual with a one day subscription to Nissan Tech Info (download it). I have a feeling all those connectors you broke off/ran over will come to be a pain in the butt later on.I don't have the shop manual. I'm winging it. It just a motor. It's not rocket sciencestry.
As I was swinging the car around to face the garage this afternoon, I ran over a connector on the driver side harness and smashed it. I also pulled another wire completely out of the harness. I have no idea what they go to but I'll fix it.
All I'm doing tonight is cleaning the garage so I can move both the motors around and swap the transmission tomorrow night. So nothing to really update, unless you want to see my bucket of oil soaked towels.
