  1. Looking for help. I am going to start putting together a motor soon and I have all the fasteners mixed together due to sitting in storage for a while. I also have access to bolts at my work if I am missing anything. I am hoping that someone has a list of what fasteners go where. Did anyone purchase the Bolt Kit from Zcardepot and has pictures of the stock list or something? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Why L28 Piston Deck Height?

    No I haven't.... I just received my parts back from the machine shop and waiting on a few more items before I start assembly and taking measurements. Iv'e just been doing calculations on what to expect and something not making sense. Just wondering how/why the books are so off from real life. 0.020" is a lot to deck a block and everyone seems to be in this area and I don't think everyone has a decked block.

    Why L28 Piston Deck Height?

    This post is to find out if anyone knows why the L28 motors have negative deck height when running flat tops (piston sticks out of block). From reading different people's post I see that the deck height measurements are roughly 0.017"-0.025". I never understood why when looking at the measurements from "How to Rebuild Your Nissan & Datsun OHC Engine" L28 specs: Block Deck Height = 207.85 mm Connecting Rod = 130.2 mm Piston Pin Height = 38.1 mm Crankshaft Stroke = 79.0 mm This should give a positive deck height of 207.85 - (130.2+38.1+(79/2)) = 0.05 mm (.002") I was just wondering if anyone knows why in real life we get a negative deck of ~0.5 mm (.020")? Which of the above numbers is not accurate to real life? Am I missing something.

    What gasket to use? Need help

    Hello, I have 1978 280z... The head is cracked so I am replacing it with a P79 head. I am wondering if someone has experience putting a P79 head on a N42 block. Does everything line up properly? I am buying a complete gasket set for my 78' 280z but do I have to buy the head gasket for an 81' 280zx to match the P79 head or would they be the same? My build is going to consist of the following: N42 Block rebored New Flat top pistons Grind camshaft if needed with new bearings P79 Head resurfaced (0.010") with complete valve job Remachined stock cam 245-270 degree with lift .460" Headers/Exhaust K&N Cone

    L28e Cylinder Head Options

    I also don't want to have to run super premium fuel since this is a daily driver in the summer..... What is a good compression ratio to try to achieve when I am milling the head deck and boring out the block if I go with this P79 head flat piston block set-up?

    L28e Cylinder Head Options

    Need some help on what I should do to my 1978 280z. I had to change the head gasket due to coolant leaking into the combustion.... When I sent the head to the machine shop for resurfacing they found that it was cracked near the exhaust valve on cylinder 3... I read that this is common with the N47 heads. I am looking for a replacement head and I found a P79. I was considering buying the P79 head and resurface it along with a valve job. Then I plan on getting new flat top pistons (0.020"-0.040" oversized) and replace the dished pistons I have in my current N42 Block and obviously I will have to bore out the block.. I currently have 2.5" exhaust, headers, K&N intake. Is this the correct step I should take or should I look for N47 or N42 head instead? I plan on using the stock cam. Thanks in Advance
