    Head Bolts and Gasket

    I have a difficult time locating another valve. Any ideas?

    I tried to post, and couldn't get it on this site.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, but the nick is on the valve and not on the head.

    I had intended to lap the valves till I saw one of my intake valve which has a nick close to the valve set. So I thought I purchase new valves.

    Thanks Mike, Now I need help on finding the correct head bolts for my Z24 and also where I could purchase new exhaust and intake valves since I have the heads off. The valves don't look good and it's the original valves.

    Hi all I just got back to working on my 83 Z24. I bought FEL-PRO head bolts but on the box it had KA24E eng 1989-92 made in japan. Can these bolts replace the original Z24 head bolts? The original head bolts has a number 13 on the head and the FEL-PRO has 12.9 on the head.

    I've been working on the engine off and on in between honey do projects. I'm about to pull the head off the engine, I've got the crank on TDC and the cam sprocket #2 straight up and the intake and exhaust rockers are loose, but I noticed the colored link is one link off above the #2 dot on the outer edge. Do I have to reposition the chain, if not how much would my timing be off if any and in what direction? I hope I don't have to do more work.

    I made the timing chain wedge per Mikes drawing and tried to dry fit, but the sprocket bolt is in the way. Should the sprocket bolt be removed prior to inserting the wedge? This is the first time I'm removing the head without removing the bottom half.

    Thanks NC85ST for the Nissan part No. DatzenMike, I saw your timing chain wedge on another blog and would like to try it. Is it possible to get a PDF so I can make my own. If not I understand. I like the Idea that the wedge holds the tensioner in. I don't need the extra 4-6 hours of work.

    Thanks for the head gasket lead. I did have the head machined after the second blown gasket. I also need info on head bolts to replace the old ones. By the way, does any one know why only that one bolt threads smelt like burnt oil. The other bolts did not have the same smell

    Hi All, I'm a newbie to this site and it's my first post. I look at this site for advice in repairing my 1983 Nissan King Cab Z24. I blew my head gasket twice between cyl. 3 & 4 and both times I used NAPA (Victor Reinz) head gasket set. I did not replace the head bolts. After the second head gasket blew I started re torquing the head bolts one at a time on tune ups. A bolt on the intake side second to the last bolt, snapped on removal. Now I have a bigger issue. I need recommendation and part # if available, for head gasket and replacement head bolts. I've owned this truck for 37 yrs
