Hey, I just inherited a sad looking little '88 Nissan Pickup so I thought I'd fix it up.  The interior needs a new dash and seat, among other things.  Where's a good place to buy a replacement seat?  I like the idea of converting it from a bench to bucket seats.  I ran some general Google searches but nothing really sticks out.  Thanks ...

street scene makes some great truck seats.  I have found lots of good seats on ebay aswell. search Hotrod or Ratrod. tons of cool parts to browse through.  if the seat is in good shape but needs recovered there are lots of companies that will take care of it. has great seat covers for around $250.  If you are looking at buying new seats they can run as much as $1000 for premium leather seats.  Just food for thought.

O and if anyone’s looking for parts go to and you'll find parts all around the country. All the parts are from salvage yards but you will find what you need. Thank you to anyone who may the answer to my question.

Hello truckers! I'm new here and I just bought a used 1994 nissan hardbody reg cab. I bought it on ebay and I picked it up at New Hampshire and drove it to Austin, TX. So far just minor problems, here's a list:
1. Water pours from the pax side under the glove box when I make a hard turn.
2. The eng won't start now. It doesn't even try to turn the eng. I already tried swapping a battery. I'm guessing the fuel pump or starter Confused

Any ideas or recommendations?

Hey there i am a Mobile Mechanic here in the San Antonio.Tx area. I also own a Nissan Hardbody '97. I know my post is a few months late but i can help you. In regards to the water dripping on the passenger side i have the same problem with mine. I discoverded it was the a\c coils condensation leaking through the box instead of out of the drainage tube which runs through the fire wall. The leak is caused by dirt and crap clogging the drain tube. The box needs to be taken apart and the coil cleaned this is from a lack of maintenance of the cabin filter.

For the starting problem if the starter does not engage check the ground battery cable first. Next get a piece of wire and attach it to the small signal bolt on the starter and touch it to the positive of the battery that should turn the starter if not you have a bad starter.

unfortunatly there no fuel pressure test port for the nissan. but you can try spraying starter fluid in the intake, if the engine starts up and the fuel filter is not clogged you probably have a bad pump. If you do have a pressure tester you will have to test the pressure at the filter by removing it and connecting to the lines. The fuel pressure should be around 35 to 40 psi.

I have an 88 Desert Runner 4x4. The headlight/blinker switch will only work on highbeam, the tail lights won't come on and the instrument panel light dosen't work. I believe its all related to the headlight switch. Do I have to replace the whole steering column or can just the blinker switch be replaced???  Thanks for any and all help!
