    Goddamn these are small trucks. Really puts it into perspective how big cars/trucks have gotten over the years. Not that there weren't big cars back then but today very little 'small' cars.

    To each their own man, put fender mirrors on it, cut you stock intake or paint it pink I really don't care. But that isn't going to stop me from voicing my opinion on it. And really how much difference is the stock air box going to make over the Weber's filter on a 95HP 4 banger?

    Just cut a hole in your hood and install hood scoop pointing right at the filter. Would go well with your fender mirrors. Or K&N makes a plenum kit but looks just as bad as the stock intake. https://www.knfilters.com/racing/plenum.htm

    I heard they make no difference, be interested whether it makes any difference for you. Just get rid of the stock Hitachi/airbox, it looks stupid under the hood compared to having a weber there instead.
  5. Ha, at least you are using as it was meant to be used. Hell I had a Ford Raptor with a 5.5ft bed, vs 6ft bed in my Datsun. Do so much more hauling with the Datsun then I ever did with my Raptor.

    Never heard back from the KA24DE dude so search continues. Still driving this fucker a ton, rented an aerator with it, got a yard of mulch as well and bunch more wood and hog panels for my fence.

    Fender mirrors are the worst on trucks.

    Got a link for the the '45 degree 1/8 NPT' or is that something I can find at any auto parts store?

    Dunno the year all I know is it spins freely and It came out of a ‘drift missle.’ Been reading about KA24DE swaps and losing your bench seat depending on what the tranny came out of? Anyone know firsthand?

    Got a line a KA24DE + 5spd tranny, ECU, harness and other shit for $200. Welll $250 delivered. It spins but no idea about compression or anything like that. I figure for $250 its worth taking a shot with it. My plan would be to rebuild it anyway so what is the worst that can happen?

    So that adapter you linked threads into the block, stock sender goes in the back of it and the pressure gauge goes in the side of it? What you are saying about using teflon tape and ground wire? Something about checking the voltage?

    Did you ever posts a picture of what you sender looks like now? It this the same adapter? https://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Pressure-Sensor-Adapter-Supply/dp/B07L4Q74SH/ref=sr_1_33_sspa?keywords=oil+pressure+gauge&qid=1555768061&s=automotive&sr=1-33-spons&psc=1

    Welp I fixed this, just popped the pin out of the level/arm and adjusted the turn buckle thing out (towards the front) and put it all back together and its working again. Dunno why it stopped but its fixed now.

    I think my parking brake shit the bed. Went to release it today and it had no tension. I had to pop the hood and push the lever/arm down to get it to release. Now there is so much tension from the handle but a ton of slack on the wire under the truck before the Y. Anyone know what could cause this? I can’t even move the lever/arm ( the one attaches to the brake wire and frame) in the engine bay. It’s frozen or stuck. I can't pull on the parking brake at all because the arm/lever on other side of the firewall isn't moving at all.
