could it be an old 30k japan import motor? that would be more likely to have a FI head. how did you come to own it?

looks kinda off though, i don't remember freeze plugs being painted, and the valve cover looks painted also, along with the head. even low milage engines had a smidge of dirt on them.

That looks very much like a brand-new engine. That or someone took a great deal of time to make it look that way.

the tape on the end of the crank shows its never been put infront of a manual, looks like something to cover grease for the pilot? looks like something nissan wood do, not so much an engine builder

Looks like a rebuild from Thailand. from back in the 90s unless there is a Nissan or Bap Geon (GoldStar) labol that tells somthing else.
I had a Thailand rebuild. Back in the day they were about 500-800$ or so.
Nissan had a clearance also in the 90s with crate motors. but about $900 or more.

the notces are for the injectors. so be a good choice for a FI conversion
maybe somebody on the 510realm might want this also

My Thailand rebuild lasted 50k miles. Its started stinking.(blowby)
when I opened the motor ever bore had a ring land scare in the same clocking position so I assume they gapped the rings wrong.
My Jap Bap Geon rebuilt lasted 60kmiles . The head gasket was leaky. When I tore it apart I notice the head bolts loose. but proceeded to remove the head. Gasket looked fine so I guess all i needed to do was torq the headbolts down and that would have been it. But I notice the exhaust valve was running out of adjustment(valve lash) and woud have needed to get pulled soon anyways
Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

I just came accross the same type of crate engine L18 same color block, A87 head (no notches) block #5417B N68, but mine has a Gold Star remanufacterd in Japan for Bap Geon sticker on it. It has a sticker on it that says to torque head to proper spec's then again once at operating temp.

 

My question, should I just replace the head gasket to be on the safe side or just do what it says above. I came across this engine as a estate sale and the seller said it had been stored for over 20 years. Does anyone know anything about Gold Star ? I am not sure if I want to install it or just save it.
