  1. Where is the option for uploading jpeg images. Don't see anything but "insert image from URL" and if you click on edit, there's no option for attachment's other than a URL???.
  2. Why can't we post pictures like in the past without using URL's?
  3. I'm missing some parts on my 83 720 and wanted to see how available they are. Haven't been to a junk yard yet, plan on it soon. Need right front wheel flare, left and right fender badges, and left front parking/turn signal light. I know which badge goes on the drivers side, but what fits on the passenger side. See two holes but no shadow like the drivers side. Guessing it is king cab or 4x4. Wish I could submit pictures but the only option was inserting URL's and I don't know how to insert URL's.
  4. It's not buzzing, its clicking on and off. I thought the relay was related to the fuel pump. Will it hurt anything or cause me problems clicking? thx for the reply.
  5. Last week my 6 prong RY-55 relay started to chatter. I replaced it with a new relay and I'm still getting occasional chatter, expecially at start up and initial running. This is the small square relay attached to the larger oblong fuel pump relay. What would cause this? Do I need to change out the larger relay also? Could this be a sign my electric fuel pump is having problems. Or should I just ignore it. Thanks
  6. Hopefully fixed. Spent about 4 hours on it this a.m. Emory clothed it once, cleaned all the plug's, etc. and put back together. Gauge's worked intermittently, up and down. So we took it back out again and re-sanded it. Put back together and nothing, except the idiot lights were working wrong. Left turn signal didn't light, battery light didn't light until it was running. Another hour or so checking voltage, etc. until I suggested to my mechanic that maybe we had the two white plugs swapped, he swapped them and all the idiot lights returned to normal, turn signals worked correct, etc, but the gauge's didn't work at all. I said forget it, I'll put a live gauge for the temp. We closed it all up and when I started the truck, the gauges worked. Don't work with key on, only when running?????? Anyhow, they are working for now. I only need them when its running anyway. Thanks Mike for the suggestion and picture. You guys are great.
  7. Wow, sure wasn't looking for that kind of regulator. No wonder we missed it. Thanks Mike, will give it a try. So to replace it, you would have to replace the whole gauge? Racerx, I don't know what a JY is?
  8. Thanks Len, I read all the post and looked at your pics of drop. Sure doesn't look like my gauge's. Back to the drawing board. Thx
  9. Hi. My fuel/temp gauge use to go off and on, now they quit working period. My mechanic and I tore the instrument cluster out and looked at the scematic in a nissan repair manual to troubleshoot. In the scemetic it shows a voltage regulator in line for those two gages. When we took the gages out including the speedometer, we could not find a voltage regulator. No where on the firewall either. Anyone know where I can find the fuel/temp gauge voltage regulator? Thats about the only thing we thought could stop them from working. When it was intermitent, it may have been going out. Now it is out. Thanks in advance. Bill
  10. Have a unusual event happening with my lights. The turn signal headlight switch works great. Wipers work great also. Every once in awhile, my lights turn on automatically. I can be in the house and look out and see my lights on. Twice I have had a dead battery because the lights came on during the night and drained the battery. I know I can replace the switch, but is there anything else that could cause this to happen. Dirty contacts, etc. Thx
  11. Hi. Have been doing some further research. Turns out it is the intank pump relay that was chattering, relay #28545-89900, not the inhibitor relay as the mechanic told me. The relay, as King Rat said, has to do with the fuel pump. It provides power to the external fuel pump located on the side of the truck, and if it goes bad, you will have no power going to the fuel pump. As to the alternator, I had it taken out and bench tested. Tested fine. I will be looking at battery cables, belts, etc. as suggested in the other posts and do some testing. Sure have a lot of problems with the electric on this truck. May need to take it to a electric shop and have it gone over. Thanks for the replies.
  12. I finally looked at the relay and called a couple parts stores and the relay is around $50.00. Don't understand why the truck has the relay when I don't have a intank pump?
  13. Hi. Having a unusual problem with my 83 z24 engine. Lately I have been hearing a chattering noise coming from the passenger side of the truck, under the glove box. A Couple times when the chattering was happening, the alternator light came on. Twice I opened the hood and lifted the negative cable off the battery and the engine died. Most of the time when this occured I was driving down or up my long dirt canyon drive (slow speed). Once I hit pavement and sped up, the alternator light went out and the chattering stopped. I finally took it to a alternator shop yesterday and they removed the alternator and it looked brand new and tested fine. I told them about the relays I found chattering and they looked it up on a scamatic. Identified them as the choke relay and inhibitor relay. The inhibitor relay (larger one) was the one doing the chattering. I felt it when it was chattering and it was hot to the touch and the relay was constantly connecting.. I asked the mechanic how these relays could be affecting the alternator and they didn't know. He said the description of the inhibitor relay said it was to be used on a automatic transmission vehicle????? I haven't removed the relays yet as I planned on doing that this a.m. I'm thinking of just replacing the relay if I can find it. Went to 4 auto parts stores and none showed a inhibitor relay. All had the choke relay. I hear that relay engaging everytime I turn the key on in the ignition. Do remember in the past when the truck set for a long time and the battery was low and I tried to turn it over, I heard the chattering in the lower right corner. Seems to be influenced by the battery voltage???? Any suggestions from the forum would be greatly appreciated. Thx, Bill
