I am rebuilding this nissan engine for a independent study project in school. I was hoping someone could identify this engine so I can find torque specs, wiring diagrams, etc. The block says v54, I don't know if that means anything (I know nothing about nissans). Is there anywhere else on the engine that the engine code would be? Any help would be appreciated.

I guess I should include its a 4 cylinder, 8 valves, 8 spark plugs, single overhead cam.

judging by the valve cover it looks like a ca20e
Wasn't the CA20E also a 12-valve engine? I would send a PM to Nizmodore, a.k.a. Nissan Jesus. He knows the old Nissan engines, and 8 valve engines are too old for my blood.

8 plugs, fuel infected, t-belt, if the #1 injector is off set, I would have to say it is a CA20E
He is right i checked out a 86 or so 200sx and that engine is what i saw. Some older 4cyc fords had 8 plugs.

Thanks a lot guys, the #1 injector is offset. So the engine would be out of a late 80's 200sx? I'd like to go buy a haynes/chiltons for whatever car it is out of.

I ran a search on the ca20e. So it could be out of a 1985 200sx or stanza? Is there a haynes/chilton available for those cars because I need to find the specs soon.

e16 maybe?
It doesn't look like an e-series, the valve cover is different, the distributor is totally different, the pistons are spaced different. Plus, e-series don't have 2-spark plugs per cylinder (unless its an overseas clyinder head I've never seen).

Isn't that the same engine that came in the 4 banger Nissan trucks (pre-hardbody)? I remember those had 8 plugs, I hated tuneups on those.......

Thanks guys, I just bought the chiltons manual for the 200sx, 240sx, and stanza. Seems to have everything that I need. I'm gonna have a lot of fun sorting through this wiring harness lol.

Well I got pretty much the whole engine rebuilt. It took a lot of time to degrease everything and then put a coat of engine enamel on pretty much everything. I'll try to post some pictures later. Now the fun of wiring and vaccum lines starts, I can see the headaches.
