Oh no, the crank is broken, so it needs one of those, but looking breifly on the interweb it looks like you can get them for a few 100 bucks on alibaba, and i need to have a better look at the main bearing kournal and cap that is in question,

but i will only need a gasket kit, instead of the full rebuild kit, sooooo maybe a grand all up, depending if i get the head reconned, (valve springs) and if i do my usual and go full stupid on it

As you guys can see from the photos below, the crank is definetly broken, of interest apart from the bearings on the number 4 journal there seems to be no other damage, i havent dimensionally inspected anything, but damn, theres even cross hatch in the cylinder bores still

Seriously not bad shape considering its got 365k on it

Coincidentally does anyone know where i can get a replacement crank, local nissan dealer wants just shy of 1700 bucks, and i aint payin that much ...............

You might find one by grabbing a donk from a wrecker?


I'm disgusted at the price of parts direct from Nissan. Airbag module $1025 ... that's criminal. I've opened mine up, it has a faulty 3900uF 25V electrolytic capacitor.

I wonder what the response would be if you went in with this deal ...


"I'll buy the car in whole. I'll then return the brand new components to you, and you give me the shelf price of each component. You will get the entire car less the crankshaft ..."


You'll make a killing. Or they'll give you a crankshaft to save the bother.


I wonder what response you'd get from Nizzbits? Send him a PM. He knows a few people. You might get lucky!
