What year? I'm in the middle of pulling the motor and tranny out of one (motor is fine with a valve cover leak-tranny has no reverse) and transplanting a motor and tranny from my donor. These are 96/97/98/99 era.

Wow. We'll have to start swapping stories, advice and parts. This is a '99. It had 110k on the clock when I bought it and I can only say that in the last 50k miles the oil has been changed religiously.

I should've asked for your advice before starting to pull the motor. You surely already dealt with the front diff blocking the oil pan (and ultimately the motor's exodus). The block is still in there and I'm diving back in this weekend. I'm either dropping the front diff/axels or unbolting the tranny and sliding it back.

This is an automatic, 4x4. Your's?

By the way.. What are you doing with the extra motor? I'm planning on rebuilding this one, but I'm open to persuasion.

Is it the 3.3 (VG33E)?

I'm sure it wasn't Betty Crocker, but it would be interesting know what oil has been used up until it finally croaked.

I don't recall off hand, but I'll check the jug when I get home. I'm thinking Bullseye 100W250.

(Edit) just checked..Quaker State 5W30

Posting from the middle of the Ozarks

9 days into the trip, and Day 4 of the TAT. Crossed the Mississippi yesterday and are into the Ozarks tonight. Short and sweet, Tennessee was great with lots of water crossings. Mississippi sucked big time. Nasty roads and deep loose gravel. Arkansas is tough in the Mississippi floodplain because the roads are commercial farm vehicle roads, but once away from the floodplain they are fantastic. 2240 miles into the trip. One flat. No other major issues. Joe can read roll charts like a champ and has led every mile since we started the TAT. He is really becoming a great rider.

Sorry for lack of posts, but I'm having issues with my server for hosting pics. No advice needed, I'm just posting the trip to Facebook. If you want to follow, just ask me to friend you. Jeff Munn. Richmond. You can unfriend me after the trip if you want. Will not hurt my feelings in the least. I just don't have the time in the evenings to post to multiple sites.

Cheers,
jeff

I said I was in the "middle" of pulling them ... I have the tranny off the motor only to find my tranny cradle jack won't let me clear the underside to get it out. I have the body way up in the air on 6ton stands and it's still not high enough . Yes, both of mine are automatics, 4x4, 3.3motors. It's obvious that Nissan mated the engine/tranny assemblies from underneath before bolting on the front drive/suspension components. It would be easier if I had an overhead lift that you could hoist the body way up and drop the assembly from underneath. But once you free the motor from the tranny the motor should come up with no problem.
If you were trying to move the motor around without disconnecting the transmission you are beating your head against a wall.

Just a picture from a proud Papi

Gabriel looking very stylish at the track in his KTM ensemble (he has already asked for orange KTM gloves! ) His riding skills are improving weekly, he asks me almost every day "can we go to the track this weekend?" I love it! I predict a dedicated MX bike in my future. I never thought I'd say this but my DRZ400 feels like a GS Adventure on the MX track and it's suspension can't handle hard landings with me on it's back.



This is what you get when I try to launch my DRZ too high! A low-rider DRZ!

That explains where Eddie has been hiding. I wonder what percentage of Eddies post comment on or talk about planning a bike purchase?

Thinking I'm going to stay put in town tomorrow and go riding on Saturday. The forecast is improving too.
