Hi guys,

I am a total newie and bought a 1989 Nissan J18 engine I am working on right now. It is a really easy engine to work on, but it's taking me longer than I had wanted. I've been unable to find any workshop documentation for that engine for torques and other stuff. Some Datsun 510's had that engine but so far, nothing. Can any of you guys point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

Reiman, hi

I’ve had a scan and found a few publications on the 510 with the J series engine; here in the UK they are available on Amazon; if not there is a site I’ve found the manual but needs to be purchased...


I’m a member of the Z club here so will ask some questions of a few of the members tomorrow to see if they have a digital copy knocking about.

hope this helps and will get back to you as soon as I’ve found any more!

long live the old Datsuns!

Thank you for your help Dave, it is greatly appreciated.
