Thanks. Reached out to them. Will see what they say. Being European, doubt they will have this US-only filter assy.
On making one, when I opened the original, it destroyed the internals. And I was careful. It was more complex than may seem. 3 welded ports of certain diameters (for the VCM, which controls the idle), internal metal screen filter beyond those, leading to continuous-ribbed filter material in circular pattern.
They also made an earlier plastic filter assy - with quite different dimensions and a different VCM - for the same function (on the Pulsars). That part was 16860-33M16. Have been waiting for someone to say 'hey, you can use the 16860-33M16 filter - just adjust the hose sizes.' But, even those are unavailable, and of a different complexity.
Recently had the beginning of success with a fellow who had a reach into Nissan. But, unfortunately, that chain of communication went dead, just as the end was in sight.
Hoping someone somewhere has a couple of these NOS filter canisters 16860-33M17 (or 16860-33M16).
I have an inventory of JDM OEM parts recently bought as a lot. I have sheet metal forPulsar, Sentra, 200Sx, 240ZX, Z31 '84-86. Nothing for the Z cars. parts are from the late 70's to early 90's. Fenders, doors, rear qtr panels, and ligt gates. Have a list of parts numbers if intereted. Will sell complete inventory. [email protected].
