Re: Buying an engine tomorrow!!!

Re: Carbed KA24E

Well it will be difficult to run with the distributor sticking into the heater core. Until this is sorted, the custom oil pan and engine mounts don't matter. Find a D21 Hardbody KA '86-97? KA24E RWD with it's 5 speed. Has a front mount CAS that you can remove (needs EFI to work anyway, and you don'...

Z24 510 issue!

Hey guys so I recently pulled a z24 out of a 720 at the junk yard thinking that it would be easy putting right into my 510.

Boy was I wrong haha

Z24 sits a little to high and the oil pan hits the cross member.

Any tips? First project ever

Hey guys!

I recently purchased a 1968 Datsun 510 sedan. Very stoked to be rebuilding such an amazing car.

I just found a L18 with peanut head for sale. Worth the purchase?
