I'm really just putting this here in case anyone is searching on data for this engine
, and, like me, could not find the one critical bit of info that does not seem to be out there on the web anywhere, the engine
I have the engine out at the moment while I attend to some bilge
issues, and given that I am planning to install soft engine mounts to replace the current
robust but horribly rough hard mount setup, I needed to know how much the thing weighs.
Got a decent crane scale on it and it comes in at 450kg all up including the standard 24volt alternator
, the heat exchanger
, manifold and a velvet drive 71c 1:1.5 transmission
. I think the transmission
is around 70 kg from memory but that information at least is readily available on the web. There are still a few of these nissans in service
( our club race
start boat has two) so people might find this info useful.
