Hi all,
Just in the middle of an engine rebuild for my 312 bluebird and have a question for anyone who has rebuilt a nissan E1 engine,
would they know if the timing chain is the same as what is fitted to the datsun A12 engine .....? I have seen some infomation recently that would sugest that it may be but have not been able to confirm it...
Any help appreciated. :lol:
Drew.

E1 Engine = 52 link chain

A12 Engine= 54 link chain

Beside the amount of links, the chains are identical-

cheers mate,
I think i may have solved the problem by using a timing chain from a 1968 mgb.
all i need to do is a few more measurements and should be sweet.
Already have a new set of pistons 30 thou over size to go in and motor is
being line bored & tunnell bored as we speak, or type....
have drilled out and removed all the oil gallery plugs from the block and have new ones to go in.
Will keep you posted, am also using a timing case cover from an mgb as it runs a rubber seal instead of the factory felt seal the nissan ran.
thanks, Drew.
