I was off at the Marine Corps when they had their crazy shooting that ended the game.
Man, I wish I had that story to tell. LOL...

The '93, which was my first car, was a family hand me down. Wanted to find a '93 since I prefer the combo of late front end and early dash, but I found this '97 when I set out to get another Hardbody. The round dash has been growing on me, and the 2-din opening was nice since I had an old DVD/Nav deck laying around to throw in.

Nice truck!

Your location says United States, but I'm betting you are somewhere in East Texas. I don't know if they had that competition anywhere else. I think it was KYKX that had that game.

Thanks, sir!

I'm originally from Houston but now I'm in CA. I thought they had a Hands on a Hardbody competition in the Astro Arena back in the day, but I could be misremembering that.

I'm in Roseburg but from LaPine. Any normal winter over there you get excited when it hits 0F! The city even sells bumper stickers about the cold weather in the winter. I remember a couple years ago where the high for the week was -25F. My old truck was the only rig outside that started at the house. Battery was pretty trashed from that year.

Hey guys, how is everyone doing? I was away for work then I took some time off and did some backpacking through Europe. Back now and want to get some work done on the little moneymaker.

I found this post. My truck is LOUD as hell even at low temperatures, garbage truck is a great comparison. Every now and then it slips into a quieter idle but I haven't been able to determine what the constant is that initiates the change in speed. Truck temperature stays pretty constant at higher loads but I would like to reduce the noise for driving through neighborhoods.

Welcome back, Nate.

How old is your fan clutch?

I'd imagine quite old, I'm not sure which generation owner I am and the truck definitely went through a period of non-maintenance. I haven't bought a new one yet, don't want to buy a crap fan without consultation.

Got the crank seal replaced, timing set (teeth counted, marks aligned, everything as proper as possible), and everything reinstalled. Got the air out of the cooling system today after work. Gonna drive it tomorrow and see how it does! Can't wait to get the truck on the road again, it's been too long without getting to drive it!

Ha! Guess what I'm doing this weekend? My pressure plate is getting weak. Clutch tarting to slip a bit on steep hills, although it still shifts just fine. This problem began back last August when I went on the Eclipse Campout to Oregon. On the way back, the freeway was jammed for miles. So...I gave it the juice and cut across the sandy median and took a different route home. I had to over-work the clutch to make it through the sand, and that's when it started giving me problems. Says a lot for Nissan that I could still drive it around for another five months before finally addressing the issue.

But I do have a tranny jack, and a really pro floor jack with jack stands. Four days to do it, Friday through Monday afternoon. We will see. I may do a video for YouTube.

Shop said $800 plus tax. Okay...whatever, you jerks. I got the following parts from Advance Auto for a total of $143 with all the discounts. (They have lots of them if you are registered online.)

Clutch disk
Pressure plate
Throwout bearing
Clutch slave cylinder (not main slave, the one on the tranny)
Alignment tool
Rear main seal
Pilot bushing
(GL4 fluid not included, but I will buy that after I get the tranny out)

This included the sales tax, which runs about 10 percent in Washington state.

Wish me luck. (I'm gonna need it LOL)

It's been a while, but I have done this twice before on these trucks. It's not technically complicated, just a big pain in the behind. Kind of like being asked to hand-haul a whole lot of cords of wood from the front yard to the back yard. Doesn't require a lot of brain power, but mucho labor. Hauling the wood is probably easier.
