I will have my engine in later today and i will know what route i am going by then. I just need to change the rear main and the pilot bushing then put the manual flywheel and clutch assembly on the engine.
I haven't thought about what I'll be doing there yet. JP2code posted a link for the adapter on Ebay and it seems to be the easiest/cheapest way to get everything up and going. But, like you, I was thinking about the alternator upgrade myself.

Getting the brackets from a Frontier/Xterra seems pretty popular and a set from the junkyard wouldn't cost much at all. I'll watch for your update, thanks.

Driving home today from work. I got caught up in some traffic. It was the usual slow, go, stop and then go routine. So I decided to attempt to close the final Drive Cycle(Catalyst Monitor) while I was wasting my life in this traffic. I knew it would eventually clear up and thin out where I could get some room out in front of me. So when the time presented itself. I did the drive cycle mostly and as best I could. I carry the chart with me, just in case. Well I do what the chart tells me to do. So thinking it didn't work. I stopped for fuel for the week and checked the monitors after the fill up and low and behold...ALL monitors are now closed! I am so relieved and still riding the wave of emotions that I passed smog yesterday. But this was the icing on the cake! I originally wasn't aware of the I/M monitors and had an exhaust leak. Along with some other items that needed some TLC. I took care of all of them after I failed the Enhanced Smog Check the first time. This has been going on since last February! But I persevered and prevailed!



So in celebration. I fired up my 1990 Kawasaki stand up jet ski and revved that 2-smoke motor in sheer bliss! I just LOVE the sound of engines revving. Especially if I'm the one revving them and hauling azz in/on them.




More to come later...

Got the upper radiator hose replaced. I ended up having to use 1 silicone 90 and one rubber. Hopefully it holds without leaking. I'll fill it with coolant tomorrow and bleed it. it was coming a sleety mess so I didn't wanna try to bleed it tonight.


Also got the rear window weather stripping replaced on the driver's side. Truck should be ready to get back on the road tomorrow.

No progress on Hector this weekend - too messy to be outside in mid 30s temps and it not be an emergency.

You folks in TX/MS/AL/western TN/OK and any other areas being affected by this HUGE winter storm, stay safe! Have seen pictures from a friend in west Texas where they got at least 6" and are expecting more.

So while inspecting my engine bay yesterday after the strong smell of raw fuel with the engine idling. I find that the return circuit from the fuel tube gallery had a split in the fuel tubing. So upon bypassing the fuel return tube. I smell exhaust. I found this:

An exhaust shop might be able to weld that back together.

How do you test a cooling system for leaks after repairing it? Do a bunch of donuts in your yard in a ice storm of course.
