Luckily, it is the one bolt that was needed and valve cover can now be held down correctly like it should. Luckily(again), there isn't any oil pushing past the gasket.

My small locally owned hardware store does have a great selection of assorted nuts, bolts, screws, hose clamps(wire ones too) and those little furniture shelf holders that go under the shelf. Great selection!

FINALLY removed the broken opera window latch this morning and installed the new one I purchased from Dave29 on eBay(hardbodyguru). So the window is sealed again, IF, it ever rains here in SoCal again. It will. Just not soon enough.

Also, bought the power steering molded reservoir hose from AutoZone today($14.99). Hope to put that in soon!

The wife's 98 Pathy had a rock tossed into the passenger side headlight, so I ordered another one.

She complained that other drivers had better lighting than she did anyway. So I ordered THESE for her from Amazon.

LOL...before I try LED lights for the Teal Terror, I want to see what they do in HER car first. And drive it at night first. Ain't I awful?

The results for other drivers won't be pretty. Basic optics at play here.

You know what? I believe you. I had a change of heart and canceled the LED headlight bulb order for now. I will install some Osram Nightbreakers (halogen) instead and go with that. They are definitely brighter than stock halogens and work well on the truck. Let's see what they do for her Pathy. They are also cheaper.

I've seen your truck. And the lighting setup is has, so I trust you on this one. If she isn't happy with the Osrams, then maybe we go to the LED. Saw a lot of good reviews on that particular LED, though. Some of them made by classic Nissan owners, some even by Pathy owners. Had not seen that before with other LED setups. So I was tempted.

I do have a question, though. The Pathy has that straight-in plug-in setup, but not the same as the D21's. Osram shows their plug looking the same hookup, only THEIR bulb end is L-shaped. But it looks like the bulb will take the Pathy plug anyway. Anyone know anything about this setup?

I'll build you some projectors if we can find clear lens housings. I've been impressed by some of the really inexpensive projectors. Almost as good as the big name stuff.



I'm just a nerd.







As long as the plug is the same it'll work electrically.

Found out the molded reservoir hose from Auto Zone is incorrect. It has both ends of the hose turning up instead of down! Oy vay. So that needs to go back. I'm bummed about this. Because I really wanted to change this leaky hose out! Might just use bulk hose line. The diameter was also wrong. So it wouldn't even work if it had the ends turned down correctly.

I also changed out the original and damaged fuel filer neck assembly from Amazon. Fitment was excellent! I'll post a few photos. Brand name is Spectra FN912. Thread pitch on the tapped bolt holes for mounting the unit were correct. The length was correct. As well as the air vent tube was correct. Mounting brackets were also correct. I don't have any due to the tire slapping incident about the wheel well. The filler hose, I found, while removing the fuel filler neck, had 5 slits in it causing the fuel vapors to escape and throwing that pesky P1447 code. So that's on order. Will change out the vent line too while I'm in there.

PorknBeans, hit up your local Napa for about a foot of H1712 multi-duty hose. That's what I just put on my power steering pump.

A few weeks back, broke drivers side door handle off. It went flying like a Chevy chase skit in jet city pizza parking lot. Quite the ordeal getting new one on, but after a few tries it appeared that getting it assembled at the top and keeping it loose while you drop the doohickey into the adjustable gizmo seemed to work.
Reassembled door panel and remembered I left the flashlight in there while hooking the last speaker lead.
