Look at this thread:
http://datsun1200.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=31135&forum=1#185477

I've also found out some added information. The location of the cam drive on the E crank might allow for a custom A series spec lower sprocket (thicker). Also the longer crankshaft length would require a custom flywheel.
Remember the rod journals are 40mm not 45mm as on the A series. The rod length will need to be considerably shorter than in the E series as well, because of the shorter A series deck height. Crower makes Honda 1237cc rods that use 40mm journals. These might work if the big end width is wide enough, but that I haven't checked. They will also need custom pistons as well. Some have suggested big bore motorcycle rods as well. I haven't researched that at all.

It looks like the E16 crank could fit but the custom peices (Pistons, rods, flywheel, cam sprocket) make it far from bolt in.

Just rebuilt my standard shift pattern 60L. I use it for road racing and the 3-4 shift fork roll pin sheared.

Yes you can double the roll pins, just what I did for the rebuild.

twistex,
I am in the States and need the upper portion of the front valance if that is intact on yours I might be interested. If so please PM me at dwpatten@gsinet.net

See my WTB in the classified for what I need. WTB: Grill & Valance

I am also looking for a grill if you have one or know where I can locate on. I'm in the same boat as far as the ebay.com.au stuff. Plus the one off shipping prices I've found to the States are out of control.

Thanks for the ebay.com.au suggestion. I located both parts, now the issue is getting them to the USA. Seller wants nothing to do with shipping. I have reserched DHL & FedEx, both are over $450 for just the grill.

Anyone with suggestions or experiance shipping from Australia to the States?

Or better yet, anyone in the States with the parts I need?

WTB: Datsun 1200 Coupe grill and front valance.

I lost a battle with the tire wall outside of turn 1 at VIR 2 weeks ago.

I am looking for a complete plastic grill in good to excellent condition and only the top 2-3 inches of the valance is needed (portion above the bumper) so damage to the lower portion is not important.

Must be willing to ship to Dunbarton, NH, USA.

Below is a photo of the grill and portion of valance needed.

Several of the guys here in the States take the Z22 engine, bore it 2mm over and swap on the L head. Same block height as the L20B and makes 2289cc.

L or A, Go L and go BIG!. Nothing beats displacement!

I don't care what anyone says BIGGER is better.

I looked into the QR25 engine for my 510 racecar.

The QR25 is used in the Nissan Frontier Pick-up here in the States. The engine blocks are the same FWD or RWD, so the Frontier RWD transmission will fit any QR25 engine. I would immaging the QR20 is the same block as the QR25, so a US market 5 speed "bellhousing" gearbox case should fit any S15 or other nissan RWD gearbox.

I have the steel Nissan Comp oil pan on my A15 race engine. The windage tray needs to be clearanced to clear the rods. OK with the shorter A14 stroke. I don't think they ever considered anyone racing an A15 because of the long stroke, but there are several in SCCA's GTL class today.
