For the VG30i guys, the three crimps in the harness are in the T section of the harness where it runs down the passenger valve cover down to the power steering/headlight area. It is almost directly above the passenger cam cover.

Also had a prong push out of the tps connector, so yeah that made her one mad bitch. I also changed the intake coolant temp sensor. The new one wasnt working, so I used the one off the gray truck. Now the gauge is working.
This is on the 87?

So the 86.5 V6 SE doesn't run at all? What are the problems with it? I probably missed where you said somewhere.

Yes the 87.

The 86.5 needs a radiator, a set of intake bolts, timing belt and tensioner (used the ones I had when the water pump died on the 87) as well as having the heads reworked.

If you want to replace that piece of hose that goes from the water pipe to the thermostat, let me know. I've got some hose that will work for that spot. If you've gotta have all that junk off anyway might as well swap that guy.

Got a craving for In-N-Out and when I got there the line was to the end of the block. Left my phone at the house so I watched about half of Half Baked in the drive thru instead of playing dominoes online or some useless puzzle game. Thank god for in-dash DVD players.

Finally stopped that god awful water leak inside the cab. It was a cracked body seam, directly under the rear window on the driver side. The body filler Nissan used to fill gaps and seams was gone. I almost didn’t see it when I was looking for the leak.

It rained like hell the last two nights and the carpet is dry as a bone. A little dab of clear silicone smeared all over and inside the seam stopped that pesky leak.

Its torn down to the pistons. I have most of the stuff. I had to use the valve cover gaskets and the timing belt stuff.
