HI!

 

Make sure the engine is on TDC with the crank pulley , then install the oil pump and gear with the dot on the gear and the v on the pump lined up, when in correct , looking from the drivers fender at the distributor hole the shaft should look like a clock at 11:35 to 12:30 straight up and down almost. if off you can turn the gear a little off the dot to line it up correctly. Thank You, XXXXX XXXXX know if you have any more questions, ROY! graphicgraphic

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
