Tearing down a KA24DE, some questions

Postby grannyknot » Sun Dec 08, 2019 5:10 am

Hi all,
I have just started to rebuild a 91 240sx S13 KA24DE and I have the block stripped down of everything except the tiny chain oiler in the front of the block. It looks quite delicate and I'm afraid it will get damaged if I don't remove it, does anyone know if it is pressed in or screwed in or what the trick is to removing it?
Thanks,
Chris

A bit late to the topic but I just finished my KA rebuild and didnt remove mine. No troubles with it getting damaged and I had my engine apart for 6 months FWIW.

Thanks Nuke, Nissan is still carrying them for about $10 so I picked one up.

good deal. not sure what your plans are for the timing set but I highly recommend going OEM on the chain and tensioners at the very least, if not guides too. It's relatively inexpensive to replace the oil pump internals while you're at it. Old hot rodder trick for gear driven oil pumps like ours is to put some light grease in and rotate it by hand while you've got it apart. when you go to prime it before startup it'll make things go a lot faster since the lobe driven oil pump will already be able to draw a suction on the pickup. worked well for me.

let me know if you want a parts # listing for the stuff. I dropped a little over $450 getting all OEM timing parts including oil pump internals and pressure regulator.

I bought the best quality stuff from Rockauto, hopefully it will work out, I don't abuse my engines.
