I've never used such forums so far, so I had no clue about where to put my questions, sorry... Reading through this thread it seems to me that if you can not help me, then nobody can... I live in Hungary and my English is quite poor - especially in car mechanic expressions -, sorry if I can not use the correct grammar forms or names of car-parts! And I am not a car mechanic, so...
I bought a 1992 Nissan Pickup King Cab 2.4L 4wd z24 5speed truck. It has been working well in the past one year, but now I have problems with it, which I'd like to solve, but the more I read about these cars, the more confused I am... First of all I give you all the info that I could find in the registry papers and on the plates inside of my car and I uploaded some not too good quality photos here: http://postimg.org/gallery/2m2kjuj8/
- VIN: JN1KNMD21U0407726 (I searched it and in US database it does not exists, European database says only that it is a Terrano from 1991/6...)
- motor number: Z24 438558W
On the aluminium plate under the hood there are these caracters:
- ABE E082
- the above mentioned VIN number
- Farbe. polst.: KNLMD21FQWY (where Q is maybe a G)
- Type: KNMD21
- Color trim: 002 K
a) This car is petrol fueled but it has been converted to petrol/autogas(LPG) fueled by the previous owner. The confusion started when I was reading about Z series engines that those were manufactured only untill 1989 and in those engines every cylinder were double sparkled (except before 1982). Mine has only 4 sparkplug cable, so non-NAPS-Z and mine is from 1992 (as its papers say)...
b) The body seems to me a Pathfinder's body (the ordered Nissan King Cab's rear lamps were approx 3 cm (approx 5/4") smaller then it should have been, but the Pathfinder's fitted into it perfectly).
c) I have problems with (maybe) the ignition system (cylinder 2 and 4 doesn't work), so I tried to look for some parts to find out which of the parts went wrong, but in my car's distributor (under the rotor) there is an ignition condenser which has two cables coming out directly from it and I have read somewhere that these types were fitted into 720's distributors with 8 voltage and I have 12V 55Ah 390A accumulator in it. (Don't know if matters or not...)
d) I searched through the Vac Lines of 720 - because I started to think that I have a 720's engine built into a Pathfinder body - here http://www.nicoclub.com/archives/nissan ... guide.html
and I realized that several Vac Lines are missing in my D21. Or 720. Or Pathfinder.... If you see the photos that I uploaded and the photos in the thread of yours which I linked above, you will see that the line from the exhaust manifold and lines of point A and B are totally missing. I don't know if it was necessary because of the LPG conversion or just a big mechanic mistake or a model/type thing...
e) Also the fuse box is different from the one which is pictured on a plate under the dashboard...
So I think now you can see how much confused I am with even this car's type and model and engine. I couldn't find out which type and year of truck I have, which year of engine my car has, so I got stucked here. For being able to go further on the way of renewing this vehicle I will need your knowledge about these vehicles. I have a small thought that I am a victim of a scam and I bought a car which was built from parts of several different types and years of Nissan Trucks...
Please, help me out here if you can! Thank you in advance!
