HRH Posted February 9, 2011 Report Share Posted February 9, 2011 Sealik and I were discussing the problem of the crankcase mesh in the L series. If you've ever yanked one out of the block after removing the two phillips screws and plate, you'll find the rectangular shaped mesh behind it. The problem you run into is after a while, the wire that holds that shit together starts to break off. Inevitably the parts go into the oil pan. They're usually too big and heavy to get picked up by the sump, but still, not the greatest. Has anyone replaced that element with anything else and had success? I was debating using some metal lattice and folding it up. I also thought about stripping the wire off the old unit, cleaning really well, and redoing with welding wire and a few quick hits with the welder. Haven't tried to get them from Nissan yet, I think that would be a loosing bet, but you never know. Quote Link to comment
