I have a rock tumbler, would that work to clean brass? Not that I have any other reloading equipment anyway.

There are quite a few ways to prevent that from happening again until you want it to happen again.

Yes, absolutely it would. You have to put the right cleaning media in it, though.

El Caminos and Rancheros are pickup cars.

We have some nissans around but the maximas we have a re all 3.0 , damn good motor back int he day . I use to be old school hardcore nissan monkey , they were so cross compatible , the cars parts would fit the trucks and vice versa . Hell the trucks stayed about the same from 87 thru what 2000's ?
The old tbi z24 was 1 tough lil biotch and the vg30's were strong too , oil system lacked a bit but they would hold it .
This was the last hardbody I built , I never got to drive it , traded it for my 56 new yorker , the kid who got it totaled it less than 2 miles from his shop after he finished it , I was more heart broke than he was .
Ohhhh man, your bringing up some good memories for me there. I had a turd brown bare bones 84 Nissan 720 with the z24 engine for years, IT WOULD NOT DIE!!! I finally ended up just selling it to my dad for $1 so he could have a pickup for doing stuff around the house. It lived on with him until probably 1999 or 2000, when he gave it away to a charity organization still going strong; hell it might still be out there for all I know. Still to this day, that was one of the most hassle-free best trucks I've ever owned.

Can only imagine what it's like having your build destroyed in such a way. I might just shed a tear on something like that...


Maxima engine is the VQ30DE 3.0

I have a '64 Ranchero. Bought it back around 1985. Its been dead for several years now (I traded it to a friend maybe 15-20 years ago and then got it back a year or two ago). Ultimately I would like to convert it to electric.

What kind of radios are you talking about?

Those engines were so bulletproof because of Electromotive Racing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_GTP_ZX-Turbo
