Never underestimate the ability of the parts store to mess your order up. You can order based on the actual part number itself and still get the wrong parts lol.

The z24 and ka24 don't have spark plug tubes, though. The plugs screw right into the side of cylinder head on both engines.

Wait... isn't the main selling point of a timing belt that it's supposed to be quieter than a chain? I hate those ones where you have to set the tension manually and am thankful that my car has a...

Yeah, it's probably on there pretty good if it's never been changed out before. To get it loose I usually try and gently grab it with a pair of channellocks and twist. The fittings on the firewall...

You should be able to get it without pulling the manifold or the starter, but you'll have to do it by braille. I have a good picture I took of everything while I had the head off a couple years ago,...

I think the beck/arnley and OSK timing sets are one and the same. I used the OSK set the second time I did mine.

The first time I used a cheap no-name kit I found on Rockauto. It lasted about...

I don't get that one either. The bed is like 4 and a half feet long. At that point it's more like a car with an open-air trunk.

Seconding the tubing bender. Since it is the return line a couple of regular old hose clamps should be sufficient to keep it from leaking. I would bet it's either 5/16" or 3/8" tubing.

I have only 2, down from 4 a year ago (3 that run lol). Before I moved I sold one and junked the one that didn't run. Once I can get into my own place all bets are off.

I have heard of it on V6 trucks and Pathfinders but not on a 4 banger. If you're having trouble getting the filter to unscrew I find that one of those cup or 3-jaw style oil filter wrenches and a...

You can do it either way. If you leave the adjustment on the timing gun at 0 BTDC (or your gun isn't adjustable) you'll need to aim for the 4th from the left. If you adjust the gun to 10BTDC then...

It's possible but that's not the first place I'd look. It's easy enough to check that the chain and gears are in time. If you pull the valve cover the camshaft gear is right there. There is a...

If you are just a tooth off on the distributor shaft there's no need to remove the timing cover. Once you take the distributor and oil pump out the shaft will pretty much fall out. As stated...

I would be willing to bet they are M6x1. I've always wondered if the KA24E valve cover bolts (which have a regular old 10mm head) would interchange with the z24 and vg30 valve cover bolts.
