Take the steering pump up to the auto parts store and go through pittman arms until you get one that fits. There's no need in going back out to the yard, because you might get something else that doesn't fit and Pittman arms go out from time to time.

Bring your Pittman arm with you to make sure there aren't other changes on the other end, though.
The problem is the Pittman arm is from the Calmini kit. I canít just go back to OEM without changing the whole steering setup.

they changed the steering box during 93, previous years had a weaker box. Depending on when in 93 it was made it could have either one. My 93 has the weaker box.

You probably just have the wrong box

Nissan specified a '93.5 Hardbody that had r134a refrigerant and side impact beams in the doors. Perhaps the stronger steering box was another part of the mid-year revision.

Glass part of the mirror fell off the housing when I was heading down the freeway yesterday, damn!

The chrome housings I have are in really good shape and I want to keep them. I'm going to try and pull off the glass from Pathy mirror at the local Pick A Part. Who knows a good adhesive to use when replacing just the glass?

My first thought was gorilla glue or double sided tape.

Loctite makes a glue specifically formulated for glass. That would probably be the best thing to use. I haven't used it in a while but it seems like it's also good for binding glass to plastic or metal.

I've replaced glass in my pass side mirror a few times now. There's a non-setting adhesive on them. What's worked for me was to knead it so that it's fresh and remove some of it so that the mirror will press all the way in without too much force. I broke one trying to get it to sit flat. You need to make sure to get the mirror inside the lip of the plastic backing or it will eventually sag and fall off, especially in the summer. That's what happened to the last one when I didn't drive the truck for a couple weeks. Current piece of glass has been in there for a few months now as good as the day I got it to fully seat. A heat gun would help. I worked mine in on a hot day after the mirror had been in for about a week and looked like it was gonna leave the truck.

Drove a $500 Nissan Sentra today. It drove way better than it should have for that cheap. Its kinda rough but could get me to work and back reliably. Has 292k miles! Yikes! And I think my truck is faster.

Do it. Cheap cars are fun to own.

Not long ago a buddy bought a Sentra off a friend of a friend. Nissan dealer offered her $800 on a trade and she decided she'd rather sell it to someone for that little and put out a feeler on Facefuck... I mean book. Little shit ran great but was pretty dirty. My friend detailed it and sold it for $1800.

Gotta do the brakes on the loaner truck tomorrow. Fronts are squealing, backs are grinding - and something is making a HELLACIOUS intermittent racket. Hope it's not the center bearing.
