    1200 Alternator Direct Swap Upgrade

    It comes from a boat engine. Easily google-able. LR180.

    That is 100% factually incorrect. Everything lines up perfectly. Verified by me who installed it. Also, stock is not 50 amps, but 35 amps.

    A12S Head Swap to H89 Head

    The A12s is just the mid-mounted A12 (stock) late model. I will bore the A12 to 76mm, work the H89 head, and mount it.

    A12S Head Swap to H89 Head

    Is it confirmed that the H89 head will fit the late mode ('80 - '89) A12S engine? Also, what is the price point for one, or should I just get my original head worked?

    You'll need to move your lower radiator hose out of the way, or find the part number for the bracket that moves your alternator to the top of the engine. That bracket you could get for 20 bucks.

    Post 79 started top mounted to make room for AC compressor
  8. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the most beautiful replacement for the Sunny 1200 that is a direct swap for, at the moment that I know of, ANY A series engine. The Wilson 70-25-12272. It is a diesel boat generator platform, heavy duty meant for continuous and stressfull use. The blue wire is for a tachometer, fully internal regulated and has an LR connector. It has been pre-treated with salt resistance, including all interior mechanical and electrical components. The mounting and fitment is 100% perfect on my A12 engine, top mounted. Pulley lines up without any need to change the length of the belt (960-990mm), and there is above-nominal clearance for the fan. There is a 90 amp alternator version, the LR190. I had O-o-o...oreilysssssssssssssss autoFARTS order it to compare the sizing. There are quite a few variations of the 90 amp, therefore a bit more difficult to get the right one. I don't recommend that. I've purchased the 12v 80 amp version. Other part numbers it goes by are as follows: Lr180-03 Lr180-03C 112375 4-6278 LR180-03A LR180-03B 119573-77200 If you're looking for a replacement alternator for LR135 series that is a direct swap, check this 80 Amp out.

    Yes I understand. I know that I have an A12... not the larger bore A12A. A12 block with A14 crank is the route i'm going.

    I'll slow it down. It's mostly just excitement. I have enough information as of right now. I'll start with disassembly and then a12gx head source.

    I'll make sure to remember that and inform my wife. Also, I definitely know I have an original A12 (non-A) unfortunately. Just need to know where I can get forged pistons,then I'm off to a rolling start. I wonder if JE can cut 86mm pistons shallow dished to keep that 9 / 10 - ish compression ratio. Really wanting to build this right the first time, and not worry about it for 300,000KM. Just wanna be a badass A12.

    Awesome. I got my build planned. Going for the A12 with A14 crank and A12 bored rods to 19mm. Just looking for some good 76mm pistons. I'd rather not want to go through the sonic testing of the block for 77mm pistons. Does nissan still make the 76mm competition pistons?

    Yeah that's all good information. Okay, so i'll be going for an A12 build most likely. I'd like to rebuild tha 56 gearbox though. What is there for a rebuild kit / strengthened kits? A

    I've been hitting up a bunch of Japanese shops. I've some small experience in engine building. (currently have an rb26 build on hold due to military stuff). But it's the only engine i've ever.. studied immensely. So this is all learning all over again and I appreciate your massive assistance on this. Thank you for explaining that 150 HP is pretty much overly exhaustive. I'm going to stick with 80-ish HP atw, considering you said that 100HP would be "hairy". I'll stay away from transplants at the moment. Sidenote: If anyone here hasn't really researched all inclusively for parts, here are a list of japanese websites I've found that make parts for sunnys and such. http://matsuoka-m.com/?cat=4 http://south-yokohama.com/ http://www.kameariengineworks.co.jp/CONTENTS-2.html http://aobaauto.com/ http://www.pitroad-ts.com/ http://www.eeecustom.co.jp/

    I have to get out of the mindset of "big horsepower" considering that my last owned car was an r32 with some kick to her. Alright editing this: I've decided that it's going to be an A12 build. Just because I want to keep the originality of the truck. The question remains though, how bad is the drivability at 80HP for street? Also, as for the 56 transmission (4 speed which I have), is there any kit that strengthens it? such as better gears, snychros etc?
