    Here is the current setup. The air intake is temporary, and all of the fuel injection wiring is still in place, just bundled out of the way. It is a 79 L20b with a 280zx flywheel and clutch bolted to the KA24e transmission. I’m running a bypass fuel pressure regular for the Weber 38/38. I had to make a custom rear sump pan and carb spacer thing. The engine mounts needed tweaking, and I did up a distributor pedestal to use the stock 96 hardbody ignition. For being such a kluge, it works surprisingly well.

    @iceman510 Do it! Get her back on the road. @]2eDeYe, the guides were still mint this time, I can’t explain what happened other than the Cloyes timing chain being junk. You can’t keep the audience in suspense about your solution....I think I have one too, but it’s pretty radical. I’ve been driving it for a couple of weeks now in this form. I’ll get some “completed” pics up soonish.

    It’s a semi temporary solution. I got sick of breaking/failing timing chains. I couldn’t seem to get good aftermarket parts. OBD2 and carburetors is the new hotness. This timing set had about 1000 miles in it.

    This doesn’t belong there.....
  5. I’d say they are around 20% larger. The rotor diameter increase is not huge, but you can see by the above picture that the v6 rotors are much more massive and will be able to take more heat.
  6. @Valvebounce1996 stock 4cyl hubs, 1990 2wd V6 rotors, pathfinder calipers. Bolts up fine. The braking plate needs to be trimmed a bit and the hoses are different, but the stock ones work.
  7. I’ll let you know how it bolts up. But I have v6 rotors and pathfinder calipers that will be going on my ka24e truck shortly.

    Finished up the exhaust with the new cat etc. and it still ran like garbage. I tested the fuel pressure and it was about half of what it should have been. Off with the bed I put in a new fuel pump and filler hose, cleaned up everything, and painted the rails. In my experience, fuel pumps normally work, or they don’t but this one was just lazy. The truck runs like a top now. I threw the bed back on, replaced the missing hardware, and fixed the body alignment that has been bugging me. The new leaf bushings made it sit too high in the rear again, so I redrilled the front
  9. How do you like those headlights? Are they the eBay specials or the name brand ones? I am still rocking the sealed beams and they are trash.

    Cracked manifold suck. $104 eBay headers do not fit without a ton of surgery and they weld strangely. Got it done though. A friend gave me an eco boost mustang exhaust, so the cat will be used here. Undecided on mufflers yet.

    That would be very cool. Thanks.

    Thanks for the info.I wasn’t sure what was supposed to be there in the first place. I’ll figure out the rating and clean that mess up....with fewer wire nuts.
  13. I don’t know if you have looked into an actuator for your intake yet, but the d21 KA24e has vacuum actuated butterflies in the runners. The mechanism may suit your needs and should be cheap.
  14. I was thinking about this KA swap business the other day. The pan was the only real question mark for me. Glad to see a 240sx pan will bolt up with minimal issue. I’m interested to see where this goes.
  15. Clean little truck. Any updates on it?

    No more smooshy face. I also backdated the grill to the 86 style. I have a mail slot hood to go on too after I clean it up a bit. Also I have this weird wiring business next to the battery. Does anyone know what is going on here?

    My front fenders are crap, so I just pulled/hammered/massaged them enough to cover the tread. I have almost an inch of poke in the rear. A plan is afoot...

    D21 Roll Call

    The current state of affairs... 348,000 miles and still ticking. So far I have just been catching up on the maintenance it has never had (and lowered it). The plug gap was .125”, for example. I’m surprised it ran. I really like it so far.

    Altitude aversion therapy was successful. 2” spindles and 3” blocks with maybe another 1” on the torsion bars. I may raise the front a touch, we will have to see how annoying it is at this height. I dig it. I do have flares I may screw around with, it is a little pokey.

    Got my super Gucci Linglong tires mounted up and threw them on. The trailer tires were super sketch. Monster truckin. And now, my favorite mod so far (beside removing the interior’s biohazard status)... Whilst trolling the junkyard, I noticed early Frontier cabs are almost identical to the D21. I pulled the shift lever/console/boot out of a 98. It all bolts in as long as you take the floor plate dinguses too. Both the original boots had holes, so this is a ton quieter. The Frontier shift lever is much nicer than the wacky ass dog leg thing Nissan specs

    Things are happening. Customary commonly sized item for wheel lip size comparison.
  22. Very interesting reading. Keep fighting the good fight, you will get there. Makes me glad I sold my side drafts. Lol.

    Yeah, the ugly ones. I love those. Lol. I ordered some 15x8 Rallies. I couldn’t come up with anything decent local.

    I just noticed it has 3 trailer tires on it, so the wheel and tire situation has moved up in priority. If anyone has any cheap 15” wheels, hit me up. I would really like a set of the LEGO wheels, I have always liked those.
