#1518721 78 620, L20B foreign matter in combustion chamber.

Leak down test. If it is a valve seat you will have a leak on your tester.

It will either be blowing air out of the exhaust or out of your carb.



I know this does nothing to fix the concern, but diagnosis is fun.

With 5 votes for eating a dick, I think you know what you need to do.

#1518410 Quick Spec Questions

Thanks for the advice. I actually really like 210s. I don't know what it is but i love the 510's. My grandpa has a 66 datsun wagon and it drives like a little sports car lol. Just its something about the 510s


I meant 510.

In that case, get a stock 210 and manage to keep it running until you can afford to do everything in one shot.

By the time you get there you would have already upgraded brakes, steering, wheels, etc. You might actually find that you enjoy it as is.


Find out how much fun the 510 before you go trying to "improve" on something you know nothing about.

Help yourself by learning to search.


#1518283 What to purchase when swapping to KA24DE 1979 620. (SoCal Newb)

Posted by flatcat19 on 19 September 2017 - 02:18 PM

Who's Mike?

1.) Not Altima. Everything faces the firewall.
Grab one from a 240sx if you can. Better MPI intake vs the Frontier's TBI setup.

2.) Meh. Just don't get suckered in to buying o e from an Altima.

3.) ECU and harness from THAT engine. A truck harness won't work on a car motor or vice-versa. (It will, but not easily.)

4.) That depends on your area. CL would be a fine source. Watch out for ads claiming swapped in an SR20. Chances of the KA being trashed-upon are high.

5.) Lots. Lots and lots

Daniel, this is the same mod you've been talking about for years, right?

Nothing changed from what you've said before?

I stash things. Never, never has my stash stayed a secret when I return to fetch the spoils.



Fucking pirates plundering me booty.

Compression test will NOT verify a bad head gasket.

Leak down test will not either. But it will tell you more than a compression test will.


Combustion leak testing will. https://www.amazon.c...r/dp/B000NPDL76
