  1. Got the number, thanks I'll be sure to check Autozone tomorrow. If not then the Nissan dealer.
  2. Ok. There's multiple dealers near me. What exactly do I ask for?
  3. Ok. I'll have to have a look at it Friday to confirm but I think it's the oil sender most likely then because my grandpa said it was a simple part we needed, but I couldn't understand nor anyone at multiple autozones what he meant because he forgot the name of it. Do you know where you can get a new oil sender? And I think he replaced the fuel pump not too long ago but if it can leak oil I won't rule it out until I get a better look.
  4. *oil sender* correction not the oil pump
  5. Sorry, double posted that. Anyway that's for the replys. I'll take your advice on the Valve cover gasket. And I'll use the Shell one I think. I'll have to check out pricing.I only bought a quart of castrol GTX 10w30 high mileage so it ain't much of a loss. Waiting on that Tax money to come so I can finish gathering the rest of the parts and then work on the interior. Anyway can you clarify what the fulcrum pin is and the oil pump is on the inside right? I apologize I do general mechanic work but anything inside engines are not my specialty. My grandpa said that it only loses a quart a oil, but that was years ago. Now he hadn't really kept track he only added as needed and we haven't started it in about a couple months since we took out the transmission. So I don't know if that info helps. I'll update again with more pictures when I get those new gaskets on. And I'll try and get a better pic of where that upper leak is.
  6. Hey guys, I'm back. Sorry for the long delay and happy new year. So I got the transmission mostly cleaned up, in the process of putting on getting more parts (the pilot bearing, oil pan gasket, valve cover gasket, and the transmission seals. I did the rear main seal already. Lubed it with fresh oil as I had to change the oil anyway ( I'm gonna use 10w 30 high mileage with a quart of Lucas oil additive). Hope I did it right, looks flush and everything. Also degreased the whole rear of the engine and the oil pan, definitely was leaking there. I have some pictures of where it looks to be leaking oil elsewhere. Can't exactly tell but might be the head. My grandpa says it can't be because it never lost coolant or drew white smoke only leaked oil. So I'm kind of at a loss here. Should I get the head redone and the gasket replaced because it might be that or just replace the valve cover gasket and see? Or should I get the whole engine rebuilt? And should I get it done now with the transmission out? Thanks again and I appreciate everyone's feedback
  7. Still have anymore?

  9. Sorry guys I took a while but finally got some pictures for you. Thanks Mike for the instructions.
  10. Ok. I'll definitely take your advice. Gonna take a bit to get those seals and we got a new release bearing as well. The pilot looks good but might as well. And the rear main I guess as well. I wish I could post the pictures but I'm not sure how.
  11. I thought that too but it's all motor oil from what I can tell. We're in the process of cleaning it. Then we'll look for new gaskets. I'm not sure if they have parts at my local auto parts. The clutch kit, release bearing, and tranny mount were all special order.
  12. Have pictures of the job we just did too. We removed the Transmission and clutch components including the flywheel which was insane getting off. It had a lot oil buildup in there. Apparently he's had a leak there for a while and the clutch wouldn't grab anymore because of so much oil buildup. Anyway we are gonna clean the bell housing, put new transmission fluid and a new mount because we have it out and are gonna clean the flywheel. We also got a new clutch kit to put in even though the old one was in good shape. We need to find the leak though, and it's hard to pin point exactly. Looks like from the head maybe a bit towards the back. Also the oil pan is leaking too we are gonna replace the gasket. Doesn't appear to be the rear main because it looks clean and in good condition but debating whether to change since I have access to it.
  13. Ok so I have pictures but don't know how to upload them
  14. Thanks for responding everyone don't worry I'll definitely get pics this weekend. The paint is pretty bad and it's got a tiny bit of rust, mostly surface rust thankfully though. Nothing I or any decent person can't fix. Has a rusted whole on the bottom of the drivers side floor panel though. Might have to weld a new piece in. He paid a guy to paint it for him 2 years ago but the guy did a real shabby job. No clear coat and the guy didn't even move my grandpa's tool chest he just painted around it.
  15. My Grandpa bought it off an Older lady back in '80 According to him. So 1 year after she bought it so I'd say brand new. It's been in the family all those years since then. And he's had many adventures with it. I wish he could share here but he's not exactly Tech savvy.
