Hey all, not your full ground up rebuilt thread but I'm working on refreshing an A15 and sticking it in my Sunny.

So far have most of the short block together, nothing fancy but should be nice:
- bearings
- rings
- aggressive cam grind (got to have it lumping over)
- gilmer drive (sourced from this forum)

Got the head pretty much done, need to tidy it up a little and rebuild with double valve springs to suit the cam. Apart from that I have a couple of dellortos to give it the juice.

I'll also have to paint the valve cover and alternator so it looks as nice as the rest! Anyway it looks pretty neat I think, looking forward to getting it going.

Goodo
I like seeing people use the old A rather than newer engines

Cheers guys.

Started on the head, got most of it done but somehow I'm missing 2 of those little valve collet things, anyone got some spares they could sell me? Or where can I source some from..

EDIT: called Nissan and they had some in stock, $4 each, easy.

Been a while since the last update, got most of it together now.

- Motor completely assembled
- Headers wrapped
- Carbies prepared

Once I find time to stick it in I just need to put on the new Xtreme clutch and setup the thermo fan.
