I've decided its time to swap to a modern motor set up. Any body know what I should sell the J16 motor/trannny for? It needs valve work, compression is low in cyl. 3.

All acc included



New Valve cover and Exhast gaskets
Carb was Professionally rebuilt by Contra Costa Carb
GM Alternator
New Hoses and coolantt
Cap, rotor, plugs, and wires
Trans and Diff fluid
Electronic fuel pump and filters

Hey Miller you say its a J16 or is it a J13? I only say that cuz it shure looks like a 1300! If it is I'm down the HWY in San Luis Obispo and would be interested but not really in a J16( which I think is a L16, help me out guys!) only the J13. Thanks :hmm:

J13, J15, J16, and J18 I beleave are the same block, it is also my beleif the latter 2 are rare in the USA, if I were closer I would jump on that J16, but alas, i am 10 hours away each way.:(

I know the voices are not real, but they have some really good ideas.

its the rare J16

I've hered, "they are EXTREMELY rare in the states!!!!!! I had one years ago.....sold it for $50 since I had no intentions of running any pushrod stuff.....but that was before I had my NL. That motor should bolt in in place of an E1 in the 320's or the J13 in the 520/521's. I sold mine to Datsunaholic and he said he's only ever even heard of maybe 5 in the states. I probably could have gotten around $500 for it. If I still had my NL....I'd certainly pay that for it now! It has enough power to handle the 3.89 gears in the diff. I could do 70 with my E1 and those gears, but it wouldn't hold it well......the J16 certainly would!"

Yeah, I got a J16 from Mike Klotz. I needed a J13, he said he had one, I drove all the way from Tacoma to Gresham on a Sunday Morning to buy it and both he and Dave (?) were there and neither noticed it was a J16. I'm pretty sure I paid $100 for it, but hell it might have been $50. I also have a J15 in my '68 520. Bought it that way.

I've heard the J18 and J20 have 5-main cranks, hence very different bearings.

Well, at least he gets 24 hours notice. That's more than most of us get. All most of us get is, "Mind that bus!" "What bus?" _splat_!

I'm thinking about keeping it, do you know anywhere to get parts to rebuild it? Thanks

A bit off topic here, but you say you have a 68 520, you wouldn't happen to have or know where to get a couple of 68 headlight rings would ya ? The trim pieces that fit with the grill, thanks
