  1. That old girl always did fire up well after sitting. When I first got it in Vic the original owners had passed away so I have no idea how long it sat, we used a come along to load it but I'm pretty sure it drove off the trailer with a fresh battery lol

  2. They seem to go thru head gaskets but other wise are good little engines. For the record it almost fits the valve covers have different predrilled holes so only on of the air cleaner bolts lines up and the coolant return spout is different which required an inline tee for the heater connection

  3. Well it lasted 3 or 4 weeks before it shit the bed so I am now half way thru swapping the Japan built E-15 in place of the Mexican E-16. Only the block head and thermostat/distributor mont are the same everything else has been swapped onto the E-15 from the E-16. Hopefully it fires up and runs ok once it's reinstalled

  4. Oh ok literally a technicality I still have my 82 310 2 door sport coupe (black one posted above) but it's in rough shape only reason it's still around is that it was my first car.

  5. has anyone ever tried swapping E-15 and E-16 engines? I have a 92 Nissan sentra classic with a blown head-gasket and an 82 datsun 310 with a rebuilt head/new head-gasket. Can i swap the E-15 in place of the E-16? I`m hoping i can bolt all the E-16 parts to the E-15 to keep the throttle body injection. Thanks

  6. not really i rewired the existing tail lights to run separate turn signals and brake lights since the stock combo switch is worn out and didnt always power both brake lights after turning. i need to pick up more sand for our blasting cabinet, but this truck will likely be tucked away for the winter soon
