Default The things you learn

During a motor swap the last couple nights with Mechanic Dan, I find something interesting on this 2002 Altima with a 2.5 that needs a new motor at 94K.

Putting the harmonic balancer back on.. I gaze to the right to see something as part of the all aluminum block. A nice little casting mark that says "Made In Mexico"

I never knew Nissan didn't get all their parts from the homeland....

Thats why the American car makers are suffering. Overseas parts are built for cheaper money.
