Welcome to Ratsun!


What kind of history do you have for this thing?

Any plans?


I have a friend where I live who has a J15 in his 320 with 4.375 gears from a 521.

That thing is a ripper for what it is.

I wish he would do the same to his NL.

Flipping sweet! We love a 320 around here for sure! So are you planning on a rotary eventually? Lots of info on J-series here. They actually went up to a J-18 in some parts of the world.


Also, the j-series is a copy of the British BMC b-series engines. Or close enough that it could bolt in I think. There is a guy on here doing that. Then you can start digging into MGB performance mods.


Here is a link for J16-18 info.

Hey, I've also got a J13 in my L320. When shopping for parts, just look up the parts for a 1965 Datsun 520, or similar, to see parts for the J13 engine. It's actually not hard to find most stuff, even through your local auto parts stores or rockauto.com


You can actually get a lot of stuff through your local Nissan dealership too. Just be sure to research the parts numbers in advance and give it to them. Repair manuals and parts catalogs can be found here: http://www.davidcmur...dat/620tech.htm


You can get an idea of what's still available by putting in the parts numbers here: http://www.nissanparts.cc/parts.php

I haven't ordered from them yet, as its just less hassle to call my Nissan dealership and have them order it. The dealers costs a few bucks more, but there's no shipping costs.

Found a reasonably priced mechanical fuel pump here, I think:



They also provide the Nissan part number (17010-13901), which shows as $55 + $10 shipping thru Nissanparts.cc which should also mean you could get it thru your local Nissan dealer for a bit more than $55
