Add caption

Honda V6 Engine under the J series, comprise of J30A and J35A engine, can be found in some model like Accord, Acura and Odyssey, their first type of the engine using the same rocker cover gasket for both side of engine, which is OEM part number is 12341-P8A-A00 or 12341-RCA-A01.

There are one model which it have a different rocker cover gasket in the other side, which its part number is 12351-RDV-J00, wonder what is the purpose for this model to create a curve slot at the rocker cover, should be have the reason and with a special feature on it.

Nissan Oldest Skyline Engine Gasket?

11044-28507 11044-28502 11044-78510 11044-78508 11044-EE602

It is interesting to flip back some old catalog and check what is those model is really hard to find in the current new catalog, and I think this model should be the most forgotten model I think.

May be is the oldest model in Nissan Skyline fleet, the G15 1,483cc engine can be trace back until in the year of 1968~, with C10, VC10 and WC10 model.

Later on with the G16 and G18 engine, with 1,593cc & 1,815cc respectively, Laurel fleet is coming in with model like 100K, 180K and PC10, also have the history back to 1968~

Nissan Skyline C10

G20 engine is the final model for this G series of engine. With capacity of 1,990cc, under model of PC30, PC310 and 200L, which history can be trace back until 1970~

But if we look at the info under Wikipedia, the first Skyline can be trace back to year 1957~ under Prince Motor Company, and before the G15 engine, there are also have the G1 engine, I'm really wish to know what is their gasket looks like.
