Justin Posted August 14, 2008 Report Share Posted August 14, 2008 Awhile back a guy up here sold off his datsun collection. From it I got about 4 blocks (1 L20b, 1 L18, 1 L16 and the other one is waaayy too rusted to tell), two peanut heads, a couple intakes, carbs, etc. My current L16 leaks oil HORRIBLY, so not only is it (likely) contaminating everything, but I'm spending much too much $$$ on oil. My question is besides gaskets, timing chain, and piston rings, what else will I need to replace and approx. how much will it run...? I've never rebuilt any engine before, but it seems like a datsun is a good place to start, especially after "browsing through (haven't read it cover-to-cover yet)" the book "How to rebuild your Nissan and Datsun OHC engine" The book doesn't cover cost or time, and I know those things vary the most, but an approx. idea would be really helpful...? Might get me motivated to get started...? Or maybe I just need to get a V-6 :D:rolleyes: Quote Link to comment
