stroker kit

Recommended Posts

hi

im just wondering if anybody knows of a stroker kit for an L26..... cause i want to get as much torque as i can so if i could get a stroker it would be good...... and what head would be best for???? i was told to get an L28 cam cause it is hydrolic and would be better than the L26 cam. any help would be appreciated.

cheers tellie

Hi Ivan,

Which Toyota 4x4 crank are you talking about?

I've never heard of a Toyota crank being used before

in this application.

Nick.

The Maxima diesel crankshaft is the one you want to build a stroker. Pick up the book written by Frank Honsowetz entitled "how to modify your Nissan & Datsun OHC engine." In chapter two, "crankshafts," on page twenty, he recommends the LD28 crankshaft for a stroker an L24, L26, or an L28.

If you need one, I have one for you. They usually run about $225 - $300 on zcar.com for sale forum. I'll sell mine for $175 cause your a Classic Z Car Club member.---Jerry

Hi Jerry,

How's the Z art going? I hope to see more illustrated Z's in your gallery. :D

I don't suppose you, or anyone else, can give me an estimate on how much this crank weighs? It's a possible future project and I'd have to ship one over from the US (Gulp!).

Thank you.

Toyota 4x4 has some R180 stuff, and of course the 4 pot calipers :)

Strokers get PRICEY, so for the 17 extra cubes, I wont be going that route.

you would have to reduce the compression, from memory they run at about 10.3:1 or so. havn't read anywhere about anyone doing this so no idea how stable it would be

Grab an F54 block with an N42, or P90-shaved and have it bored 3mm. Find an LD28 crankshaft (or buy mine), a set of 73 240Z - 9mm rods, a set plus two (since they were 4 bangers)240SX pistons (to establish proper "deck & stroke height"). Use a 240Z flywheel and it's 2 row harmonic pulley (the single row from MSA if you can). Gather them all up and hand it over to a competent machinist to have balanced.

You know the rest

'81 (R30) Skyline 2800GT

'81 810

'81 - '83 Maxima Diesel

Land Rover Discovery (I think, it might just be a common conversion instead)

failing that the part number is 12201-V0790

Do you have any old Nissan automotive dismantlers around you?

Yes, you will find them in the Diesel Patrol. But they are RARE. I got my LD28 crank 2nd hand, and I know someone who has a brand new one (not for sale tho). Do the ring-around - and specifically contact the Zcar workshop run by Alan Stean, he might be able to help.
