  1. As the title states let’s see em. I’m thinking I may have to route mine above or through the x-member somehow. I no longer have torsion bars so that frees up some room. But I’d like some ideas.
  2. Are you using an auto ECU by chance? I’m trying to diagnose a similar issue and I’m reading auto ECU’s may do this normally.
  3. The pins are fine, mostly. The hinge itself is split. I could just weld it if need be. https://imgur.com/a/eQykxHk
  4. Does anyone have a source for door hinges? I bought these on eBay several years ago, got to fitting them today and they’re incorrect. I don’t mind buying again off eBay but it would be nice if someone has actually fitted the ones they bought and can vouch that they fit. https://imgur.com/a/o3Qavw8 edit: can’t figure out how the hell to embed the images from my phone 🤷🏻‍♂️
  5. So you use the existing brake/turn as just turn and run a new brake. Got it. No changes to the combo switch wiring? I have one of the Thai repro combo switches that I was trying to figure out how to use. It doesn’t have the brake disconnect that the OEM one does, just a single signal for L & R turn. Not sure I want to use it because it’s plastic, but the horn connection on my OEM one snapped off 🤦🏻‍♂️. I also have the tail lights with the dedicated turns. So I may just run the new wire and call it a day.
  6. Did you run new wire from the brake light switch back to the tail lights or just alter the wiring under the dash?
  7. Ok. The RE4R01A is 24” from block to center of mount. Thanks for the info
  8. Been slowly chugging away at my project. Got the L20 and trans out and am able to compare it to the KA with auto. Motor mount to tail shaft of KA auto is only 1/2” longer, so we’re good there. The transmission mount is 3ish inches further to the rear. So I’m looking at modifying the trans x member. @datzenmike would you happen to have the measurements of the mounting location for the KA 5spd? I’m wondering if the auto is the same. Redeye makes a trans xmember for the 5spd (I think), would be tits if it worked for the auto too.
  9. I already have those brakes, was just curious if your 15’s fit over them. Bummer about the truck tho
  10. Truck when I got it had 14 x something slot mags Titan Off Road 17x7.5 +30 Just picked these up. American Racing Hurricanes 15x8.5. Ad says 4.25 backspace which translates to -12 offset (I think) Still trying to determine what tire size I want. I don’t really want any stretch. 225 50 15 maybe?
  11. For your records the A/T I have is from a 1992 240sx and measures at 32”. I can put a straight edge on it later and measure as it’s slightly over 32” but not more than an 1/8” or so. And do you measure to the very end of the prop shaft?
  12. TC = tooth count? I’ll have to keep digging and see if I can find the diameter. I believe the various Nissan KAs that use the RE4 (hardbody, 240sx, pathfinder maybe) use the same bell housing which would mean the starter location is the same and therefore the diameter (just guessing here). I’ll have to look up starter #s maybe that’ll get me a different tooth count. In other news I’ve discovered I need an A/T Control Unit to use the RE4 auto and a harness that goes from the tranny to the main harness that is eluding me. So, for the future readers that want to mate an auto tranny to your KA, don’t. Just go manual 🤦🏻‍♂️
