Question about 1987 Nissan Pickup
Thanks for your interest. 88 Nissan E24-H So far I've replaced the plug & coil leads, dist capt looks OK, filed pts--minimal pitting, need gage to gap, looks OK inside, not familiar with white lead you metioned--will have a look. Need to find a strobe for timing. Saw other comments about timing belt/chain jumping a cog--not sure what this engine has--don't like the sounds of it. ??On-line manuals??
If your engine has a (reasonably) tall, blue rocker cover it'll be a chain driven camshaft. If you have a relatively flat, black rocker cover then you probably have the Z series engine which is belt driven. If the belt/chain has jumped a tooth the ignition timing will be a mile out. Be sure to disconnect the vacuum advance pipe when checking the ignition timing, especially with the Z series engine. If you have the blue rocker cover, that engine was prone to inlet manifold gasket failure & the spark plug colours should confirm/eliminate that. Gap the points to 20 thou/0.5mm. The white lead connects the points to the outside of the distributor & then on to the coil.
