Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

The Z22 block has the dipstick on the left rear of the block, basically opposite of the L20B. Just live with it and check the oil when the engine is cold. :lol:

I do Mike, but I don’t think I can post a .xlsx file on the realm since we changed servers.

I’ll see what I can do tomorrow.

Thank you

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

Not strictly necessary but if you want to there's no harm. I have an oil cooler on my L20B it doesn't need it but I had the 280zx parts and a Ford cooler for free. It only cost about $50 for the special hose.

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

The rods and the mains on my Z24 project are from an L20B L16/18/20B/Z20 Z22 Z24 and both KAs use the same rod bearings. L20B/Z20/Z22/Z24 all use the same mains. L16/18 mains will only fit themselves. KA mains are same diameter as the L20B and up but are narrower than a rod bearing. L series mains a...

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

9.84 for a stock Z22 with a 45.2cc open chamber head on a 1.2mm crushed head gasket. More if the head has been milled to flatten it. I strongly advise putting an 86mm diameter Z22 head gasket on and marking the ring diameter on the head. Now grind away the aluminum closest to the intake and exhaust ...

Re: can anyone tell me how to identify an L16-L18-L20

Look along the bottom edge of the head just behind the #1 spark plug. With an L18, probably A87 open chamber which gives an 8.4 compression. There are closed chamber A87 heads around but I've looked and can find no mention of them being used on any N Am cars even though people swear they have them f...

Re: Insane wind storm in White Rock

It was very windy and rainy biking to work at 6.45 out here.... but not exceptional. The wind was like a push in the back.

Didn't know you had a 521 Keith. I had a red 6 year old '71 in Ontario. I survived 8 Ontario winters, not because of the heater, but in spite of it.

Re: can anyone tell me how to identify an L16-L18-L20

The Z20 is stamped in the middle of the block on the left or driver's side of the block under the two exhaust manifold pipes.. https://i.imgur.com/6O4bkly.jpg Z22 but Z0 similar. The Z20 is basically an older L20B block with a Z series head on it. The water jacket holes are differently placed but it...

Look behind the dip stick handle, left side...

You may need a wire brush or sand paper and good lighting to see it.

Re: Oil pump priming shaft

Get a steel rod and hammer the end flat or grind down like a screwdriver. Chuck in a drill. Turn counter clockwise.

Re: pertronix and fried spark plugs?

Electricity ALWAYS seeks out the easiest path to ground. Cracked or carbon tracked cap, rotor, spark plug porcelain, or coil tower is a short cut for spark to avoid having to jump the plug gap. What you have to do is make the plug gap the easiest path to ground by insulating the spark away from any ...
