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'm sure there is a recommended sealer, but I can think of three or four that would work.

 

Threebond 1211 and the Right Stuff would work.

 

I would probably use a two part epoxy just to be on the safe side.

Epoxy would be a good idea. I have Threebond. 

Was hopeing a former Datsun mechanic with personal experience would be able to give me the factory recommendation!😊

In it's original form, I don't think the factory used any sealer, but they also have the correct tools to clamp the tube for install. Think Chevy oil pump pickup installation tool.

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.
