  1. Yeah that's true but what is the purpose on the guide here? I can only think so it doesnt go upwards for some reason.
  2. Looks great, but curious what makes you think it's worth 28k lol? Hard to believe sometimes that car that's that old has that many km's only. (not trying to be rude or anything, just curious cause I see heaps of these sort of cars that go for in my opinion, sky-high prices).
  3. Look at videos on youtube the timing chain sits straight across the top with no 'U' shape in the middle between the 2 camshafts. but mine seems to have some play. (Keep in mind when i opened the engine there was no upper chain timing guide, apparently i need it but im not sure. Do I need it? is it a must?) 20191123_151122[1].mp4 20191123_151122[1].mp4
  4. Yeah exactly. Hey can I quickly ask you sorry for the million questions but something super important. when i remove the valve cover there was no upper chain timing guide, had no guide at all is this fine and can I drive without it?
  5. I ended up figuring it out, had to remove some stuff and my final question (hopefully) I need to put on the new lifter and my question is can I slightly lift the camshaft in order to put the new rocker arm or does it need to go off completely to even the pressure off?
  6. Hi I put back the intake and have no idea where this goes if you could please point me in the right direction.
  7. Doing some more research looks like its a fuel injector rubber real?
  8. So I lost this plastic part on my intake manifold when removing it, and I just can't find it. It doesn't seem it's inbetween the engine or under the car and need to order another one. But cannot find it anywhere nor what it's called.
  9. Thanks. I noticed my rocker arm has a certain number. Do I need to find that replacement or I can buy any rocker arm? Are they all the same size?
  10. Hi so on my silvia s15 I noticed the rocker arm snapped on cylinder 2 which had 125 PSI, others had 135-138, 145, and 145, and weird thing is I didn't notice this when taking the valve cover off. Only when I tried to put it back on and noticed a piece stuck in the right top corner (no idea how it got there) and also I noticed my timing belt has no guide is this ok? Here is picture of broken rocker arm, and surprisingly the head isn't damaged. What do you think?
  11. Yeah definitely haha. Thanks. Rebuild is my option for now, I'm just HOPING the head isn't cracked. the camshafts look good currently, though one part of it is rough like almost a tiny bit chipped off but don't think it affects anything. I'm hoping if I can only replace piston rings, replace head gasket, clean the head get it reconditioned, and there was something I can't remember. But need to fix that sound while I'm at it, so will check the lifters. Also hoping its not rod knock. If I want to try and fix the knocking sound is it better that I do it before the rebuild? Because I get the feeling I might have to take off the head multiple times to try find the issue? Or the head has nothing to do with it? I don't want to keep ruining head gaskets.
  12. I get the feeling even if I rebuild the engine the sound will still occur. Most likely lifters or rod knock??
  13. No, it's when engine is cold and warm. I didn't drive the car because too risky, most likely will break down. What do you think of generic rebuild kits? I found this on ebay https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ENGINE-REBUILD-KIT-NISSAN-SILVIA-S13-S14-S15-2-0L-SR20-SR20DE-SR20DET-91-2002/122935162727?hash=item1c9f81b767:g:0ckAAOSwRTVaa26Q But worried, if I go cheap like this it will just hurt me a couple months down the line. Labour isn't the issue, I can remove the engine for free and remove the head. Also was thinking a clutch like this: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NISSAN-s15-SILVIA-CLUTCH-KIT-S15-Extra-Heavy-Duty-TURBO-Models-SR20DET-Eng/360792137127?hash=item5400e31da7:g:WcIAAOSwq7JT5W8~ Also the sound does follow the rpm
