I use Postimage also, but I don't post 10+ photos a day anymore either.

Are you going to be able to run 60mph?

It's sounding like he doesn't have what he needs to build what he wants and it is not his fault, it's some other persons fault and he bought the engine from you.

The L18 front timing cover is really going to be short, and the L18 distributor may not be a bolt in using the Z24 timing chain cover, sounds like he might be in over his head.

With a SD series diesel engine if you can stay under 60mph/96kph you will likely get 35mpg/14.88kpl or better, I myself got 30.2mpg/12.83kpl going 75mph/120.7kph, but my SD25 is turbocharged, I likely would do way better if I could keep it under 60mph/96kph, maybe closer to 40mpg/17kpl.

This is all based on level ground driving, normally around town I get 25mpg/10.6kpl which is great as my gas engines around town get poor mileage.

The Nissan diesel engines we get here with the inline injection pumps get 300,000miles/482803kilometers all the time, I heard that the engines in other countries received the VE injection pump and they wear out much faster, but the trucks themselves generally last a long time as long as salt is not used on the roads.

As for maintenance I don't do a lot to my trucks except change the oil/filter and fix normal wear items, I used a strainer as a pre-filter between the tank and the lift pump/fuel pump, do not use a gas pre-filter as they will not let the diesel fuel pass thru the paper membrane material fast enough.

I had some Neon seats in my 720 kingcab, they were around an inch higher, drove me crazy as stock 720 seats are about the same height as all the seats I have in all my trucks, every time I got in the truck it felt weird.

I never got used to it so I changed out them seats for another set I had and life is good now. :lol:
