Hey guys so I have recently obtained a kA24E out of a Nissan stanza and a 5 speed tranny for my 1968 510.

Any tips or advise going carb?

First time doing anything engine swap related.... or even project related haha

The rear facing distributor (CAS actually) won't clear the firewall.

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't want that) and replace with an L series EI distributor. The intake has a down draft throttle body you can make a flat aluminum plate adapter for and run a 32/36 Weber on. With this you have made a KA24S

Which would be a lot easier to install? Weber 32/36 or the R1s?

So I could get the head/distributor out of the hardbody and swap it with this KA from the stanza correct?

Thinking about going with R1 carbs as well!

FWD cars tend to mount their engines very differently from RWD applications. FWD block probably won't accept a RWD distributor, either.

If you're new to swapping 510s, you're inviting trouble attempting to go down a path that few of us have traveled. There are plenty of RWD drivetrains out there and it would be a ton less work simply going with one of those versus trying to rework your FWD engine, nevermind the FWD trans absolutely won't work anyway.

Time to put the current KA up for sale
