Can anyone recommend a good timing chain kit for a dual can KA? I've seen various ones ranging from 150-400. Would it be best to piece together my own via oem parts or would a cheaper kit suffice?
I went the OEM route, I ordered at the dealership I work at and the parts counter guy had been there a long time so he knew exactly what I needed which worked out awesome. He knew of all the small shit I didn't think about replacing when you pull the covers off.
Precisely, I don't remember spending northwards of $300 then again it was employee pricing. For regular retail I'm guessing it's going to be just a hair more.
Whiskey if you want to update the chart I'll be using this ID, my car is B4
got my gktech replacement fan in a while ago along with other shit.
im just waiting for the rain to stop or the mud to harden up a bit to flush my cooling system before replacing shit
Literally the best color combo for 2tone coupes although this one is really cool also.
friend of mine took a cool shot of my car.
bought my 180 rear valence today boys, late 90s style here we come
So you're the other s14 guy! Lol I'm the donk s14 anon asking about the timing chain crap. I'm actually applying at the local Nissan dealership that's being built right now so that would be fun.
Painted up my wiper assemblies today. Looks a bit better than the shitty faded black that was flaking away. Not sure wether the gunmetal was a good choice or not but it looks a bit fresher.
Alot of it's in the prep work. If you can take your time to sand a car back and get all the low spots/dents out and stuff it would look to bad.. but then again if you want to spend that much time and effort on it just get yourself a compressor and a spray gun then go for it. I just sanded them back to bare metal, primered them up sprayed them.
Didn't paint the wiper blades haha. Thought about it but I couldn't be bothered sanding them all up only to replace them every year.
Here's how they came out. Pretty happy for a rattlecan job.
This should be on the banner somewhere.
I have a similar problem. It leaks in through the hatch and the water gathers inside the seatbelt housing. When I get in the car and start moving it splashes all over the back of the car lol. It didn't stop when I changed my entire hatch, so I guess I need to replace the weather stripping (even though it appears to be fine). Luckily I'm in dry-ass california so I don't have to worry about it for most of the year
Tell him for me "you done good son, you done damn good"
Yup that's me! What position are you applying for? Dealership life is pretty chill I have to admit. As far as being donk goes, hey we all gotta start somewhere right?
Pic related is the car circa 2010, fresh aero on stock suspension and wheels.....lol
>when you professionally work with screws and screw accessories and someone uses zip ties near you
Got to have some fun in the snow with the ol' donkey this morning
I'm still in school so just a lot porter would be fine for me. I worked at a vw dealership For a while and loved it. Dealer trades were the tits, I loved getting paid to drive across the state in a new golf R and then pick up a wagon. Like it was my whole shift just to go on one trade. As for the car I'll get suspension situated once I do some more maintenance.
Hatch struts? You mean the pressurized struts that hold up the hatch when you lift/open it?That would possibly make sense, I remember having to remove them and one of the rubber washers was completely torn up.
I just bought a digital cluster to replace my normal analog one. now I finally get to sell my nx1600 cluster that I have been too lazy to install
Whiskey, I figured out the problem. The source is from the hatch liftgate struts as some anon pointed out here. The strut is held by a 10-12mm bolt, a flat washer, a split lock washer, and some sort of sticky round rubber gasket washer.
I remember when I was working on my car and had to unbolt it, that rubber gasket just disintegrated. So, during heavy rain and the water falls down through that channel, it gets caught in between the bolt and falls through inside to the seat belt assembly. What a stupid fucking design.
Does anyone here have a digital cluster? I like how it looks, and I would love one.
Lol yeah I get it. Its nothing more than a daily right now. I have the manual pedal assembly and some clutch parts but money ran tight during holidays and now my money is in school and rent.
