dowel pins missing on the upper timing cover

Postby KippoSleek » Wed Jun 21, 2017 11:07 am

I've just made an account because after spending the last week searching, I have found nothing! I'm missing ONE dowel pin that aligns the upper timing cover/CAS. If anyone has a source on one or two, or even four I'll buy them all for back up. I can't find anyone selling this elusive part. Located in Ocala, FL 34476
United States

Nissan doesn't sell them, so you'll have to find someone with a spare/junk head that would sell/give them to you. While I do have spare heads, none of them are junk. Have you considered taking the car down to a machine shop with the timing cover and having them make a pin for you? They'll want to measure the hole in the head and the hole in the timing cover themselves.

Boy do I have a treat for you.

You'll have to pull the one you have and measure it, but if you can't find it on that web site it probably doesn't exist.

I would send you one, but all of my CA18 stuff is 1700 miles away making my parents' lives slightly more burdensome.
