    Need help with ka24e swap!

    im leaning more towards the woodruff key being broken, due to improper installation. i will have to strip the front down and have a look! JOY! ill post more pics as i take stuff apart, i did notice that the gear on the oil pump/dizzy shaft was quite worn, i imagine that it could potentially slip, either way i think that some disassembly will enlighten me on my problem. i hope my crank is ok =] thank you for your replies.

    you didnt read my post carefully, i turned the engine over fully, 360* on cam. if you notice its really close to the proper orientation but for some reason is shifted?

    Need help with ka24e swap!

    hey all, thanks for your helpful replies. i took my oil pump out and reclocked it for the proper position of the reverse d on the dizzy shaft. everything looked right and at TDC my rotor lined up with the #1 cyl plug wire on the cap. here is the strange thing, after i crank it over one full rotation (360 on cam) it no longer lines up. i took the oil pump out twice and reclocked it but everytime it would shift after i would turn the motor by hand or cranked it with my started. pics cam position crank position dizzy position after one rotation. ???? any ideas?

    Need help with ka24e swap!

    Hello, thank you for reading. I have Ben slowly working on a single can ka swap into my 720. I had it running a few weeks ago, everything was ok except the idle was a little bit shifty 900+\-100rpm. I took it for a maiden voyage to start breaking in the motor. 30 min drive on my way back home it died, I thought I ran out of gas. Got gas, manages to fire it up but it would just barely idle regardless of the throttle input. :/ I had it towed home that night. I finally got around to working on it today. Still can't get it to start. Confused, I started troubleshooting. Fuel, check, nice spray pattern/ injector pulse, 42 psi from pump. Firing order 1342 CCW. Strong spark check, although the plugs were soaked in fuel. Checked cam and crank timing, and then when I got to the disteibutor, I noticed that in the furthest left (ccw) position possible it was a few degrees shy(retarted) from cyl#1 with motor at tdc#1 compression stroke. So I figured I will have to drain the oil and pull the oil pump to reset the dizzy position. I decided to test my findings, so I pulled the bolts out of distributor clamp to allow it for further adjustment and turned it a few more degrees cw, to line up with #1 plug. It started easily but idled poorly (misfire?) and it was impossible to rev up past 2k exhaust smelled like fuel. I'm getting really crazy with this swap, I'm mostly confused and can't figure it out. What could change my timing this much? Anything to look out for ? Any help greatly appreciated.

    Frontier shocks?

    im not sure what you mean mike alright, thanks for the advice. my rear end is already really stiff, maybe because of the HD springs, maybe blown struts, ill buy some new KYB gas shocks and report back.

    that photo was taken on rogers pass a few years ago when the dats was still on the road. highway 1 glacier park. i live in victoria bc. back to the original question. do you guys think the fitting, at least of the rear struts from a frontier is the difference between having the correct overall length?

    Frontier shocks?

    thanks for the swift reply guys, i have what appears to be 1ton?? leafs in the rear. i dont know too much about them, but it was a farm truck before. iv loaded a metric ton of firewood in the box and it didnt even squat a bit... should i get heavier duty shocks or will the stock ones be alright? is there even an option?
