A14 factory rebuild???

Recommended Posts

I have a factory rebuilt A 14 that I purchased on flea bay years ago and am finally going to use it. The question I have is how to fit the water intake pipe. The rebuild's came with the pipe removed.  Is it just a interference fit or should it be fitted with some special sealer? I was thinking maybe some loc tite.

I am not a Datsun mechanic nor have a I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express but on the two I've actually had to install I just used JB Weld. 


The factory ones do seem like the are bonded to the block. The last time I had to remove a factory installed one if took me close to an hour to get it out, I had to use heat on the block.
