      You should post in the 520 or 521 forum so you get more exposure to your questions... https://ratsun.net/forum/10-trucks/

       

      There was no electronic ignitions (EI) on the J13 just points. The J series was used in other countries like Mexico and Central America maybe South America possibly in the late 70s. Have a look at the  https://pertronix.com/electronic-ignition-conversions?year=1969&make=Nissan / DATSUN&model=521 Truck&cylinder=4#auto

      You only need something cheap that gets rid of the points, no need to spend a lot of money on a new coil when the old one id fine.

      This thread applies to the J13/15 series engines as well as the E1 series engines.

      Mg Midget distributors are cheap, they have aftermarket support, and they will fit the J13/15 also.

    Weber carbs

    Installing Weber on j13 of 65 520. Had Nikki carb before. Got kit etc. What throttle cable will work on new install?
  6. I am using original intake manifold. Called redline who told me to get kit from triangle auto. Total wreck. It was a mess. Haven't started yet, but they say the adapter plate works, it looks good. Only problem looks to be throttle cable. Did you have any trouble with that?
  7. Pointers on installing Weber on standard j13 manifold. I have a dgv 32 36 intending to install on 65 520 with j13, standard manifold. Any hints to save heart ache?

    Weber carbs

    What Weber kit will fit and be calibrated for a j13 engine? Found j13 from fork lift engine rebuilder. It is a j 15 for a forklift. It has a sort of attachment to the front of the block, guess it's for driving hydrolics or something. Do you think this engine will work as replacent for original j13?

    I thought that the j15 was a bored out j13, and as such should have the motor mounts in front, which is what I need. That's why I put the question out there, to make sure it would fit. My plan was to do the weber with manifold. I actually traded for a weber which I now have, but when I looked At the boss to see what version it was I found that it was blank. Do you think this could be a boot leg version weber? Thanks for your help. Hope you have fun with that 320! D

    Thank you for your note. I get what you are saying. I bought two L engines with that in mind, but at this stage in life I have decided to do an easy escape. I know that sounds silly , but there you are. The upgrade is more than I want to handle. Thanks again. D
