It would be great if there was a way to get you all around this area for a bit of trail scouting...Idaho rockies are filled full of great scenic trails.
It feels awkward being able to jump into groups such as this one, so thanks for accepting me, I have an 85 Nissan 720 4X4 with a King Cab, A sealed sunroof, (darned thing leaked so I had to caulk it) z24 engine, and a manual choke installed. Not much else to say.
The standard speedo generators puts out 8k pulses a mile. my gauges have a couple of ways to set them. The main way is to drive a mile and hit your set button. Then it know how many pulses per mile. That Seems to be the standard setup. I just got lucky and ran across the 300. my set cape with a pulse gen to us in an older tranny that did not have one. It screwed into the tcase but had a square cable. So I was getting the cables from the hard bodys in the pic a part when i saw the 300 and decided to look. I was gonna cut the end of the cable. try to remove all the cable out of the end and glue it the gen i got. However when i found that i was super stoked. I tested it and worked great. its not in the truck yet so have not gotten to set them up once i do that i will give yall some feed back on how accurate it is.
Nice! How do you calibrate the aftermarket gauges, is there a means to adjust the way it divides the pulse count? I know the 300 had pulse generators in hub assemblies for anti-lock brakes too, I wonder if they are the same sender?
This is an FYI for some of you. Those of you that have an ext cab 4x4, and broke your speedo cable know how hard it is to get another. with that issue and the fact i have a 350 in mine i got a new set of after market gauges. I was gonna use my pulse generator on my gm tranny and not worry about my seed in low range. Well i went to my local pic a part the other day and on an 85 Nissan 300 has a pulse generator. I snatched it up. I screws right in to the tcase and works with the after market gauges. u just hook it to ground.
Sounds like a fun project Patrick, I've started my project of converting my 81 to use newer front axles and spindles. But if I were doing a 2wd, I'd still use the early 4wd spindles and just plug the axle tube holes I think, love those tall spindle uprights on the early 720's.
