Topmarincons: In checking this car for flywheels available, Nissan only lists one part number 12310-2Y910. I could find no other references or part numbers superseding this one.
When you list a single sheave, it sounds more like you are describing a front crank pulley. Again, in researching part numbers, I could only come up with one number :12303-31U10. It is commonly referred to as a "Harmonic balancer". In looking at an exploded parts diagram, it shows a serpentine type pulley."Single sheave". As far as sources: This particular part rarely fails.
New, it, dealer retail price is $234.33
Check with salvage yards, you can buy them for a fraction of that price. Another option is to buy an "UNDER DRIVE" unit. This is a part which will add horse power by cutting down on some of the rotating mass, yet not affect that crankshaft harmonics which would affect it at high RPM's. "UNORTHODOX" racing, on-line I believe is one source. Good luck.......

Can some one show me timeing mark on 1997 nissan maxima please

wow a Nissan Camry.
what engine, ??????????
what are you doing, we dont know. so..
cam marks? chain marks?
spark timing?

in 1997, most cars have 6 or more marks.

Nissan V6? is it (guessing i am)
if doing major cam work , you will need far more that just mark data.

if doing serious work, i recommend the below
  1. a real FSM, from NISSAN if Nissan.
all nissan engines are All Interference
so doing cam work or finding engine dead,
do a leak down test by hand before cranking engine
or bend the valves.
after replacing chain, do a cyl. leak down test (a tool)
and if it fails, the valves were bent, do not crank engine
or the damage WILL cascade $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Crank position sensor is hitting flywheel flywheel got damaged somehow can I bend it down with out a problem or is a new one a must need

What type of car is this..but to answer your question the flywheel would have to be out of round to make contact with the crank sensor i suspect you have a cracked or broken flywheel most of the time they will break at the center of the flywheel where the crankshaft attaches to the flywheel and would still drive for some time

1999 Nissan Maxima I want to know if my manual transmission take gear oil or motor oil

USE GEAR OIL!!!!! NO ENGINE OIL!! ENGINE OIL BAD FOR TRANSMISSION. There is a reason for so many different types of oils, and making money off of suckers isn't one of them.
