I have joined the dark side


Post by zolorin »

I have decided to convert my 260Z to a diesel burner and experience the wonders of diesel tech.

I have procured the diesel maxima engine and now ready for engine test and rebuild

The engine I just got is missing the crank injector pulley and the cover for it-- where can I procure it.

thank you

If you edit your Signature (click on "Profile" at the top of any page) and add your geographic location and vehicle to the Signature, it'll save a lot of time in the long run.

I have the IP belt cover, if you can't find one. It is not "pristine". It's in a pile of stuff I am sending off to be powder-coated, and it is a spare, has some rust. The paint or prep Nissan did for these belt covers is pretty poor: it only holds up 25 years!

I do not think I have a spare crank sprocket for the IP belt though. I have spare IP belt sprockets (IP end) for certain, if you need one.
