Daihatsu JB-JL and JB-DET engine, bottom part.

Bottom part of the Daihatsu JB-JL (Kancil L5) and JB-DET (Kancil L9) engine at a glance, still have any gasket using on it?

The part marking as "g" and "f" is one of the gasket content on their overhaul set gasket, it can be call as timing gasket or oil pump gasket. For their oil pan, which is item "a", we can see there are no rubber gasket or paper gasket for this part, it only use "Liquid gasket" which we commonly call gasket gum on it.

Item "h" is a metal housing for the flywheel oil seal, normally the original flywheel oil seal is come with the metal housing together, but some mention that the oil seal inside the housing can be dismantle and change only the oil seal with the old housing is re-install into it.

Please click into the photo to view the original size of the image so you can view the marking more clearly.

Nissan SR20DET Exhaust Manifold Gasket

This photo is found in Nissan Infiniti Car Owner Club Forum website, which this exhaust manifold gasket is for Nissan SR20DET engine for Silvia S15 model, what so special with it? The material for this gasket is multi layer steel.

Actually for Nissan SR series of engine, from SR18DE, SR20DE, SR20Di, SR20DT and SR20DET, most of them share the same type of exhaust manifold gasket, all the pattern and design is exactly the same, and their material is also made from graphite, which can be found in Primera, Pulsar and Silvia in P11, N14, N15, P13 and other model that older than S15.

It is only come to the Silvia S15 the material of the gasket is change to metal type, is it because the turbo pressure is much higher than the previous model?

This is Daihatsu JB-JL engine spark plug, which the model is generally call Kancil L5 4 piston engine in Malaysia, as usual, there may be a question that if Daihatsu JB-DET engine (generally call Kancil L9 4 piston) is using the same spark plug or not? As review from the Denso Spark Plug website info, it is actually not the same spark plug.
