    1967(?) Cony 360 Wide Kei/Micro Truck ... Nissan?

    Surprisingly, I fit well. No progress with it running. Have to sort out a faulty starter issue first.
  2. Hey man I just picked up a cony, too. Glad I'm not the only one on here. I have the truck version.
  3. Picked up this older Cony 360 Wide. It's thought to be a '67. Odd ball little thing... opposed (flat) 2 cylinder, dry sump, air cooled, 354cc with a whopping 18bhp. Cony engineered and produced military vehicles including aircraft for Japan, but after the war they began making Kei cars and engineering small engines. Nissan purchased Cony in late 1960s. Cony designed and built the A series engines (copy-cat of BMC engines) for Nissan used in the 1200 / Sunny cars. This little Cony was used as a grounds vehicle for city of Seattle in it's former life. What am I going to do? No idea. First plan is to get it to turn over. Good news, it has compression and spins freely.
  4. Yeah, thats what it seems.
  5. You're really hung up on me drilling a 1/2" hole in a used cap arent you? This is a trick all racers use. I'm sure you know this. Drill a hole and view with a timing light. Helpful trick I learned when I was working at Blood Enterprises - a hotrod fabrication and tuning shop in Auburn, WA. When I take my B210 / LZ23 project to Blood Enterprises for tuning, they'll most likely remove distributor and spin it up on the old Sun Distributor machine and correct the timing curve. And without doubt he'll check rotor phase anyway. I just have to make it run good enough to idle.

    B210 Rollcall

    Bump. Anyone else out there wrenching on a 'B'?
  7. I have a few caps laying around. I'll sacrifice and drill a hole in one to view rotor phasing. Some people are happy that their engine is running. I'm not happy until it's running correct.
  8. Sorry if my original comments didn't make sense. I was in a morning meeting at work and had to type fast........ So, my over all concern is rotor phasing. Maybe I'm thinking too far into this, but, all the little things matter in the big picture.
  9. Referring to google images for proper distributor installation and found something interesting... Some guys install the distributor with vacuum advance point toward drivers headlight, sone install it 180 deg out, with the vac adv point to thermostat area. This is cause by install the distributor pedestal backwards, or correct. (correct way is vac adv pointing towards driver headlight) Now I've also referred to several manuals I have from the 70s... Many show cylinder 1 on the distributor cap as theforward most plug on distributor. However, no matter what I do, cyl 1 on distributor is actually the rear most plug on cap. This is determined by oil pump installation orientation with the "small" part of the Tang forward. This is how the manual says to install. Thought....?

  11. Worst update ever. This sucks. Reminds me of how much I hate Windows 10. Probably leaving ratsun cause this shit is awful.

    KA24E N/A Build Plan - Need advice

    You can run MAP easily with ITBs if you tap each runner and have a vacuum resevoir. The easiest distributorless ignition to setup is actually the Ford EDIS4 setup. Found on 1990s Ford Escort and others. Possibly Mazda?

    KA24E N/A Build Plan - Need advice

    Waste of time. Sorry. But the KA will never make enough power to make the 240SX fun. Especially a single cam. Easiest, most affordable N/A KA build that will be fun would be to use a 1998-2002 Nissan Frontier DOHC with a L20B EI distributor. Install KA24E flat top pistons and your favorite set of side draft carbs with a custom made manifold (cut down) S13. Carbed DOHC KA with 11.2:1 compression sounds like a good cheap time. I say use the Frontier KA24DE because it does NOT have the distributor driven off the cam like an S13. Instead, it's like older Datsuns and driven off the crank. The L20B distributor will sit right in there fine.
