Bought this off an SXOC member on Friday night. Pretty local - Leyland, so got a trailr to go and get it as its a non runner thats been satup for a year.
Needed the top end of the head rebuilding, an exhaust fitting, and all the intake building back up again.
Picked it up, and it rolled fine, no seazed brakes - which was a good start. Its a 1998 S14a with 87k on the clocks, 2 owners - 1st being Nissan themselves, and the guy I got it from for the last 8 years!!
I knew the guy I got it from, and have been in the car in the past.
Anyway, this is how it looked when I got it home...
...after a litte clean...
Spent a few hours on it yesterday, and got the exhaust on (Which he gave me) and rebuilt the valve train...
Today Ive built up the intake system, hooked it up to the BMW on some jump leads, and she fired up on the first try!!! Cranked a fewtimes, and then burst in to life
Runs fine, but has a slight misfire under load which Ill look at tomorrow - Im expecting either a leak on the intake somwhere (Cracked intercooler) or just old plugs / coilpacs.
The brakes also need a clean, but Ive checked the calipers and the pistons move freely.
There also appears to be a little smoke from the turbo area which I suspect to be a leaky oil / water pipe which Ill look at tomorrow.
...fingers crossed Ill take it for an MOT this week
