Been working slowly on this thing. Recent focus has been on the motor. This rig had several oil leaks and these Nissan's need the timing belt changed semi-regularly and judging by the lack of maintenance, I knew it probably needed done. So I tore down the front of the motor and changed the water pump, timing belt, cam seals (which were leaking), thermostat and water neck, as well as a rubber coolant hose that had a crack and was leaking.

Got that all back together.

Took the valve covers and upper intake off. Valve covers were leaking oil badly. Deleted a bunch of the emissions vacuum lines and intake heater water lines to make things a lot simpler. Also plugged the PCV valve (which was plugged and not functioning anyways) and will vent to a catch can.
