Stopped by the local wrecking yard today and saw a 85 maxima with a diesel motor in it. looks like its all there. Is this worth saving or should i pull the valuable parts off of it?

You could get up to $900-1000 for a complete running LD28 engine and $200-300 for the transmission.

Hello Folks

What are the chances of finding parts for the LD28?

I am in desperate need of a good second hand starter motor? Anyone who can point me in the right direction?

Much appreciated!

I got one on Amazon for 100 bucks. took a bit to ship though. I just got it last month so they should still have them. I think Rockauto has them as well. Mine worked fine.

You should start a new thread. What you did is called highjacking :D
Anyway, I bought a starter in a parts store called "Parts4less" for $149.00 with Lifetime Warranty.
