Unique Factory Oil Cooler O-ring, what is the part number?


Recommended Posts

It's not 21334-R2400, please read below.


I have a 1982 L28ZXT engine from a 280zx with a 5-speed manual transmission, which (as some may be aware) did not come standard with oil coolers.  The cars with automatic transmissions did come with oil coolers but the manual transmission versions had to be requested from the dealer and as such they are exceptionally uncommon.  The annoying part about this is the MT's oil cooler is different than the AT's oil cooler and uses a completely different O-ring on the engine side.  The AT oil cooler everyone is familiar with mounts at a 45-degree angle downward while the MT oil cooler mounts horizontally.  Does anyone know the part number of that O-ring? (Again, it's not 21334-R2400, that's the AT version.)


I've attached a photo of the oil cooler mounted on the engine and what the O-ring against the engine looks like, it's about 1/4-inch thick, ~67mm inner diameter, and has a square cross-section. I have found two Nissan O-rings that looks similar (part numbers 21304-JA11A and 21304-JK20A) however I cannot find their dimensions to see if they would fit.

If you have the dimensions from the original it would be fairly easy to look up a comparable o-ring from some where like McMaster Carr.

Ah, I had not considered MC, thanks I'll check that.

Have you looked at nissanpartsdeal.com?  

I did and they only have the AT version. Thanks though.

p.s. the Nissan filter would be the obvious starting point.


p.s. 2 that gasket would not normally be considered an "O-ring".  It's a gasket.  O-rings are more complex, although a quick Google shows that the term is being dumbed down (no offense) to refer to any gasket that is round.
