Well the time has come to put a new engine in my Datsun. Finished the body(see body resto here:http://www.sr20-forum.com/members-rides/66917-z.html
) for the most part so now its time for the engine. I racked my brain for the last 2 years about what I would put in. I knew it would come down to the right deal. A fellow Datsun junkie approched me about my set of triple webbers on my Z. We got to talking and worked out a trade for my carbs for an SR, mounts, drive shaft and wire harness. That was a deal I couldn't pass up. Now before you think I robbed the guy, the SR does need a rebuild, which I am cool with. I was told from him that when hitting boost the dip stick popped out and pushed oil out of it. So the crank case was pressurizing. Usually 1 of 2 things wrong, PCV system or a piston issue. I couldnt get lucky enough to have a PCV issue so here is what I found....
The last pic looks WAY worse than it really is. Block and head are currently at the machine shop and I am awaiting a call for the final verdict.
The plans are a full rebuild. Pistons, rods, bearings and a balance. I am having him go through the head and make sure everything is fresh and good.
This is what I have so far:
Mckinney Motorsports full mount set
Mckinney Motorsports Driveshaft
Wiring Specialties S14 to 240z Pro wiring harness
Future build plans are a little up in the air. I am still trying to figure out a good ECU to use and what turbo to use. I will post updates as it goes.
