Dont ask how the passenger side exhaust manifold heat shield came off after the bolts heads rounded off due to rust.

When in doubt user a bigger hammer! Nothing a little precision application of brute force can't solve#

Infiniti QX4 transfer case shift knob, the outer diameter of the insert is 13mm, I had a piece of tubing that fits the inside of the knob just a little loose, I threaded a metric bolt into it, than screwed the tubing onto my shifter, inserted the knob onto it, as I said slightly loose, just cleaned the leather shift knob,

yea the heat shield bolts were so rounded off from rust i gave up trying to be cordial. the top bolts came out, then i had to use a 2x4 and that hammer to beat the living hell out of the shield to break it off on the bottom. those things dont come off easy.

all thats left to remove is the exhause crossover tube, trans bellhousing bolts, starter and starter wiring, oil sender wiring and the motor mounts. it rained like crazy all morning and it turned Kevins yard in to a mush. no way the block was coming out today, well, not without tearing his yard to pieces with his big ass john deere tractor.

gotta cut the core support off. the truck has been hit in the left front and its crunched back all the way to the inner wheel well. we are just gonna saw it off and take the engine out the front.

Finished my headlights again. No more cracked lens! The one on the passenger side is barely too long and interferes with the wiring harness that goes in front of the battery just a hair.

Got a bunch of things done on my other ride today - a '99 camry le v6. Changed out both the drive belts, changed the oil and gave it some new wiper blades. Broke one of the lug nut studs off, so I had to fix that too. I was going to replace the transmission mount too but the cheap one I bought online was bent at the wrong angle. After multiple attempts to bend it straight with a vise and a pipe wrench I gave up and ordered one from the parts store. Now I see why it was only $10. Such is life.



Here it is. Bent incorrectly so that the holes don't line up with the ones on the transmission. I'm not thrilled about spending the extra $$$ for another transmission mount, but I've also learned not to force things. A cracked overdrive housing on an otherwise perfectly good transmission is a much, much worse predicament to be in.

My standard-cab has always been so tight (air-wise) that the doors are very difficult to close/lock! I put slight dents in both (out-)sides of the doors, just above the handles, pressing while slamming the doors. If a window is rolled down even a little bit, no problemo!

I had adjusted the striker to make the door close tighter, but it was always hard to close, had to close it than open it again and slam it to get it to close, so I put the striker back where the original mark was and it closes easy now.

Haven't gone on a far enough drive yet to see if the new/used weather stripping eliminated the wind noise.
