Yes, you are correct. In USA we never got the "new" mid-distributor A12 -- ever. We did get the A12A in the base B310

A12 1171cc
A12A 1237cc (+2mm bigger bore)

In New Jersey, A12A is more common than A12

So your Pulsar/Cherries and B210's never had the late A12's?

Looks like from the photos you need to redrill the flywheel

Yes, for an L-series clutch or SR clutch the flywheel is re-drilled. I wouldn't bother with L-series though its only 8% stronger than A-series

Or you could get a custom clutch cover. The Nismo A-series clutch pressure plate was 550kg and it was a direct bolt up. That was stronger than any factory L-series clutch

So I am not sure if I ever explained this but I had another Datsun 1200 ute for a few years. It was blue and it was turbo and it was fast and it was a lot of fun. Eventually I broke it, (the intake manifold blew) and a few other things were a little worn out so I decided to take out the A12 turbo motor and keep it for the Vanilla ice build. Here are a few pictures of the A14 to A12 swap that I did taking out the motor from Vanilla ice and swapping it into the blue ute and vice versa.

I drove the A14 in the blue ute for over a year or so and one thing led to another and I sold it to a family in Maryland who now have taken great care of it.

The A12gx turbo motor came with the following spec's:

Quote:
gx1300 high port head, balanced, ACL race pistons / bearings,
fuel injected, Turbo charger off SX180 Sylvia, SR20 injectors , Microtec adjustable computer


Microtech MT4 ecu is what it came with. I confirmed the ACL race pistons (I think) when I tore down the engine to freshen it up. Turbocharger is not a factory 180sx turbo but an aftermarket turbo that fits a CA18det, I can't recall the exact make at the moment. SR20 injectors never confirmed, no recognizable part numbers on them.

Some photos of the motor before being pulled. And that time I owned 3 datsun's at once :)

you've built quite a legacy over in the east. makes for good memories


Yes you can set the image display width. When I click photos in your last post I see them full-size (640 x 480 pixels medium size). But they are displayed initially only 300 pixels wide. This was a site decision made back in 2002 when viewing large photos was problematic for small screens and/or slow internet connections

But you can change it

See "How do I change the photo display size the reader sees?" at datsun1200.com club photo FAQs

Early winter 2018 I decided to take the A12gx engine and give it a good freshen up. Nothing crazy just wanted to clean the outside of the engine real well and make things cleaner and nicer.

I left the internals of the engine alone as it already had a lot of work done to it.

The plan was to degrease, prep block for paint, clean all the bolt-on parts to the engine, new gaskets and seals.

I ended up getting into powdercoating with the help of a friend. I also purchased a cheap sandblast cabinet and made a DIY setup to get it going effectively. Having this really helped freshen up a lot of the parts.

Here was the engine before cleaning:
