I have a long history with Datsuns and Nissans in the UK. I have what I have been told is VG30s engine and am after some advice. It was taken out of a Nissan Cedric 1986. I have been told that it is a very rare and sought after engine due to the distributor and the carburettor. Apparently it is an import from Saudi Arabia (due to the distributor) and the handbook I have is in both English and Arabic.

The engine is in good working order and I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about this engine, or if anyone was interested in buying it as I do not need it.

Thanks

Naomi

I know of them. The engine isn't rare but the distributor is a good replacement for our CAS VG30E if wanting to run a four barrel carb on home made intake. IIRC the carb is a large 2 barrel.

Hello Naomi, and welcome to The Realm. As mentioned above, you may be able to sell the distributor, and perhaps the intake system, but the entire engine would probably only be suitable for another UK buyer interested in a carb'ed VG. Since we got VGs here in the US, it'd only make sense to buy the necessary bits and bobs.

Hello Naomi, welcome.
Do you have a 510 or just on here to sell the engine?

Hi,

I appreciate that this is a long shot given that this thread is nearly two years old, but I am also in the UK and am after a VG30S upper intake manifold to do a carb conversion on the VG33E that will be going into my Datsun Roadster.

Naomi, if you're out there, please get in touch.

Hi Frank, if Naomi doesn't reply on here, I can send her a message for you. I'm in the UK but about 170 miles (that's far in the UK) away so can't help I any other way.
