Re: SR20DET Oil Pump Priming

Oil pump priming on a SR20DE/T is very important and we developed this method years ago when we start an engine that has been sitting a long time or that has had the oil pump replaced that has worked well for us. What we do is use a simple in-line pump that is driven with a cordless drill-- we then ...

Re: 280zx rear control arms on a 510 crossmember

Yes— we put 280ZX rear control arms in the “Strutless Wonder”, but also narrowed the pickup points on the crossmember to compensate for the wider width. As I recall, it increased the track by 3/4” on each side before mods.

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

The three position switch is found in the later Datsun 620 pickups.

Re: What motor and trans in my 1960 Austin Healey Sprite?

The engine appears to have an aluminum head, so that would make it a 1967-1970 SPL311 Roadster engine.

The R16 had a matching 4-speed transmission.

Re: Spriso's SR20DET Bluebird Coupe Project

Battery I wanted to get the battery out of the engine compartment, but did not want it surfaced mounted in the trunk. We have had really good luck with Odyssey batteries, so I designed a simple battery box to drop down into the trunk. This box needed to be a compromise, I did not want it too deep w...

Re: So, You Want an SR20DE(T) Engine, Everything You Need to Know

You are more than welcome-- I would think that a L20B 4-speed is going to have a similar weight to a SR20DE/5-speed. There are quite a few guys who have done SR swaps into 620 pickups, but one of the issues is clearance with the idler to the alternator. It turns out our alternator relocation kit is ...
