    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Wow! Great to see so many of the guys from the good old days are still on the forums! I haven't been on here in almost 7 years, but I saw someone bumped an old thread the other day and decided to take a peek at the B12 section. I can't believe how many of you guys still have your B12's...
  2. The End of A B12 (Extra Parts For Sale)

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Sorry no they dont, the B12 uses a rear radius bar (shaped like a big U) and the B13 uses a proper sway bar. The front bars might be similar, but the mounting points are probably different. I am not sure about a Y10, I would guess it is very similar to a B13 though. -Nick
  3. Lowering Srpings

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Some years back I posted a how to showing how this all worked and what parts you need to buy in addition to the springs and struts. Check it out here: http://nick.backfire.ca/hosted/B12_Lowering.pdf -Nick
  4. The End of A B12 (Extra Parts For Sale)

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Well its been a while since I posted anything on here, but here's the story. I sold the Sentra to a friend two years ago since it was in need of work, and I didn't have the time with a new job. The car was in pretty good shape, and aside from some electrical problems it was running well. In...
  5. Whos got the mileage??

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Mine is officially deceased as of this month. I had sold it to a friend, and several months later it was rear ended. He fixed it but it had too many new problems as a result of the collision and ultimately it was let go. Final mileage was around 236,000 km. I actually have a handful of parts...

    nice work!!!! Kinda makes me wish I didnt sell my Sentra 3 months ago!
  8. B12 Lowering Springs on Sale

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    The most common thing to do is to buy the KYB AGX struts for the B13 and install them on the B12. These struts work fine, except that you MUST remove the brake line bracket on the B13 front struts, otherwise they WILL chafe the lines and cause brake failure. Instead bend some sheet metal to...
  9. Replacing the Heads???

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Its possible, however the valve lash on a GA16i is hydraulically adjusted by oil pressure. Its possible that the oil pump is wearing and not providing adequate pressure for proper valve lash. Its something to look into. -Nick
  10. Replacing the Heads???

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Oh I should also mention that the car burned almost all of its oil during the last 5000km. I noticed tonite when the valves on cylinder 4 started tapping noisily....
  11. Rear Deck 6x9 Speakers

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    I went to put in some 6x9's on the weekend and found that fitment is a bit awkward. I'm sure I'm not the first to put 6x9's in the back, how did you guys do yours? I was thinking making a wood platform for the speaker to bolt into, then bolting that to the rear deck. Any easier way? -Nick
  12. ? about vibration 90 sentra - long post

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    The B12 FSM lists 2 additional causes as possible sources of vibration: 1) wheel bearing thrown or improperly installed 2) Axle wear I would double check that the parts store gave you a proper axle. When I did mine recently the store gave me a box that had 1988 axles instead of the 1989 ones...
  13. B12 Lowering Springs on Sale

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    FYI: For anyone who is interesting in handling modifications, Tirerack is selling Eibach Sportline springs for $99 (includes all 4 springs). These are pretty decent springs and have a fairly aggressive drop (1.9", 1.4" rear). This is a closeout sale to sell off all remaining stock sale...

  15. Ga16de head on a GA16i engine

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Its been done before if I remember correctly. This was one of 2 options for 4wd guys to add power. (the other being using a GA16DE with the GA16i transmission). I don't remember the specifics but you'll need: - the heads (obviously) - timing chain and timing setup from a GA16DE - New heat...
  16. Replacing the Heads???

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    I checked the overheating issues, unless there are some problems with coolant flow through the block Id be willing to the rule those out. If anything the car is running below normal operating temperatures since the outside weather has been so cool. A long running complaint I have had has been...
  17. ? about vibration 90 sentra - long post

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    Sounds a fair bit like bent rims. Take it to a tire shop and have them try and balance the wheels to see if they are out of round.
  18. Replacing the Heads???

    B11/B12/KN13 82-90 chassis
    The ECU posted a Code '55' in diagnostic Mode III. Code 55 indicates that all is clear. In diagnostic Mode V (real time diagnostics), the ECU showed nothing, even with me running the engine into a serious knock condition. Im wondering now if the Engine Knock sensor has failed and the ECU is...
