Don't know if new ones are available. I'm guessing you have the earlier oil bar, which is more prone to breakage. Find a used later spray bar and you'll be fine.

No biggie, save for the damage possibly done to the cam lobe.
They're cheap enough new...or you can buy the anodized billet ones now available.

Stock Bars are in Japan, you have to find either a stocking dealership or the right parts counter guy to order them. The amount of stuff that Nissan USA chose to write off the books, and subsequently 'OBSOLETE' (and subsequently register as 'NLA' when checked on their regional system) is sickening. The stuff I've been told is NLA amazingly is still something many enthusiasts in Japan can get any day of the week through their local dealer!

The stock spray bar is flimsy (at least mine was). The tubes are press fitted in and wobble around in their fittings. Larry told me that it is common for the ends to pop off if you track the car and are constantly around 7000 rpm's...which I do (and did). This will never have that happen because it's a single billet. Performance advantage? None. Piece of mind...priceless. It was $150.
Looks good! What sort of advantages is it supposed to have over the stock piece (besides not winding up in the oil pan). What did it end up running you?

Also, experimenters can affix real spray nozzles to the bar relatively easily...so you have say, a 15degree spray directed across the face of your lobe and not just a hosing pointed there.
For the guy with the dribbling bar you could also fix small tubes to direct the oil RIGHT where you want it to go...
Mine is Blue...

Now I can go elsewhere and post authoritatively on this subject.
