Need Timing Specs for Z18 engine, 1979.5, 720 Pickup


Recommended Posts



My truck is a 1979.5 Datsun, 5 speed, 4x4, apparently made in Japan. Unlike most Amverican models, it came with the Z18 instead of the usual Z20. Wondering if anyone has the initial timing specs for the Z18.


I know that the L18 spec is 3 degrees BTDC, but can't find anything on the Z18, and, living out here in Asia, there is no way to get my hands on a manual.


Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.


Regards to all,
