#1499877 I found another one!

Posted by MaxChlan on 28 June 2017 - 07:11 PM

When I got my truck, I acquired a brochure book (see it here). My truck is an 86, but the book was an 84, so I thought what the heck and searched it up on the naked lady giver. Turns out some dude on Ebay has a few of them, and here it is! I think the coolest part of the this book is the spec sheet, which is kind of the end all be all for questions regarding options on different models and trim packages, so take a look at that if you are curious. Interestingly, it tells you which rear end came in which truck, which is something that is good to know. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy!

Yeah, the tough call here is I have air conditioning, and honestly very rarely open the back window. I live in a city, and have been mildly concerned about someone breaking into my vehicle. I find that when the driver's side window is down, and the back vents are open, I have plenty of airflow in the cab. The math kind of breaks down like this:

 

 

Assuming I get $150 if I remove and sell the slider, the new non-slider glass, weatherstripping and moulding comes to about 280-150=130 If I were to fix the seals in my slider ~70 for the lower track and ~120 for the weatherstripping (which I am assuming is the same as the non-slider and is part code 79710Y on Nissan Parts Deal if someone could please confirm), it would cost me less to replace the slider with a non-slider.

You can always convert to a non-slider window.Of course you have thought of that. I have a slider on my 4x4 and it is n my list to replace it with a solid. Too rattly, to insecure.

I have been considering that too... I would be unreal if I could find glass with the defroster/fogger lines in it; that would make me switch to a non-slider without question. I am not sure what I would be losing, honestly. All of the parts for the non-slider are on Nissanpartsdeal right now. I'd like some input on slider vs. non-slider.

I have seen that style around. . . I wonder if the chrome trim was for XE or ST models?

I need some help gathering some parts for my back window, mainly two.

 

1.) My sliding glass leaks underneath when I get a car wash. It seems like the bottom track that the sliding glass rides on is deteriorated and is the cause.

I believe the correct part number is 79742Z; is that correct? This diagram seems confusing to me:

2.) There is a visible hole through the moulding of the whole glass unit. I honestly do not remember noticing it, but now it is very apparent and could cause issues in the future. I have a piece of duct tape blocking the hole. Here is what it looks like from the exterior:

and interior:

Here is the other side for reference:

This is a part I can not seem to find on the diagram above. It seems to all be in one piece; that is to say, the interior and exterior are all one unit, formed into some sort of Z shape. If anyone could help a brother out, or do some digging, I'd appreciate it, because I am having little luck. 




#1491784 Oops, I did it again!

Posted by MaxChlan on 27 May 2017 - 04:17 PM

Interesting that in 1984 it appears you didn't automatically get a trip odometer... or was it an option? You would certainly expect that an ‘MPG‘ model would have a trip odometer, if they were available. My guess is they were ‘new for ‘85!‘.

 

 

According to my little book of Nissan Trucks from 1984, the only trucks that came with a trip odometer standard were the King Cab XE (2wd), ST, and all 4x4's.

Update: Replaced all three belts on my vehicle and another tensioner pulley. I do not think a write-up is necessary, but because it was my first time it took me a fair amount of time to do it; maybe two hours in total to change the three belts, the pulley, and change the oil. 




#1491755 720 Part # Thread

Posted by MaxChlan on 27 May 2017 - 01:38 PM

Here are part numbers for all of the belts:

Air Conditioning (innermost): Duralast 15365

Alternator and fan belt (second): Duralast 17335

Power Steering (outermost): Duralast 17465

 

All of these are V-belts.

Maybe the 3rd is for A/C compressor?

Ding Ding Ding! After further inspection, that is what I lost.

Posted by MaxChlan on 26 May 2017 - 10:28 AM

Yeah, I told them 85 so they didn't get the Z24 and Z24i mixed up. I am going out to my shop tomorrow to look at the situation. 

 

You have like 2 belts tops unless something weird is going on. Make sure that you tell whoever you get the belts from that you want them for an 85.
How many belts are you taking off?

Posted by MaxChlan on 26 May 2017 - 09:24 AM

Thank you Lockleaf; from what I am seeing on autozone's website, there are three different belts, so I guess I will just get those and see which one I am missing hahaha

Posted by MaxChlan on 25 May 2017 - 09:30 PM

Minor problem: tonight I fried a belt, and out of fear that it was connected to the alternator or water pump I went ahead and got towed to the shop. Does anyone have a diagram of the belts for a Z24, or at least what size the different belts are? I think I am going to go ahead and replace them all this weekend.




#1491234 Quick Oil Question

Posted by MaxChlan on 24 May 2017 - 05:17 PM

Yeah, I went ahead and ordered two gallons of T5 and two WIX filters off of Amazon. Carquest wanted like $25 a gallon... got it on Amazon for $17. 




#1491149 Quick Oil Question

Posted by MaxChlan on 24 May 2017 - 08:03 AM

I run Shell Rotella Triple T 10w30 in my Z24, and I have noticed that my local parts stores have stopped carrying it in favor of T4 and T5. I'm due for an oil change soon, so I was wondering if I should make the switch to T5.
