're the rear mount dizzy, there's a blanking plate at the rear of the head iirc, but not sure the std cam has a dizzy drive?
I think you are right. I have a bluebird head that was ported and polished at Silvia Engineering and I have a Bluebird dizzy but it would end up with an ECU with a wasted spark/ coil on plug to make it work without the cam.

Great minds think alike Ben. I refer to my earlier comments yet again -

Still. That bluebird turbo engine is begging for a big top mount turbo.

Would make a fantastic track car....
Anyone would think no one reads you posts that way you have to repost them :D :P

My inspiration came from having replaced melted distributor caps from a blowing exhaust manifold :roll:

Every day is a school day :D

I've not really paid any attention to the Bluebird versions of the CA18ET engine before. I wonder if the owner of this car took inspiration from the GW racer?

I would imagine that the bottom ends are the same across the range, just the head and ancillaries up top are different?
It would be interesting to know what the differences were between all of the cams and dizzys and find out which bits are interchangeable. Around 8 degrees difference in lobe juxtaposition IIRC between SS and TS is now known :oops:

R-R suggested that the sump is different, so possibly the oil pickup as well?

Dizzy at the end is a double edged sword - keeps it away from the heat of the turbo but makes it as tricky as a CVH to get to!

If you have seen the size of a TS dizzy, you would probably agree that it unlikely to fit back there. As to why this SST has a Bluebird engine, I suspect it is merely what was available.

Still regret not raiding more from the one that was in the local scrapyard a few years back.

Checking part nos against the line drawings in the respective bluebird fwd and Silvia rwd manuals would prove differences

This is what’s behind the blanking plate on the back of my spare (originally in a RWD Nissan) engine. Snotty has the same.

Same as mine. It looks too well engineered to be just there as a blanking plate though.

If you look at Ben's post you can see the fwd casting is different

Is it an optical dillusion, or is it an eccentric cam?
Could have been used for a manual fool pump possibly?

I think it might be an optical dillusion?

No manual fuel pump on the injection head and the eccentric for the pump pushrod is somewhere around No.4 cylinder, not on the end.

Bit of an update on this car.

Now has a set of decent seats.
Underbody Shutz applied to all metalwork.
Pair of new headlamps fitted.
Carpets all cleaned up.
New fool pump.
Brakes and cables all freed off.
Copper fool lines front to back.
Fool tank out and cleaned up inside and painted outside, before replaced.
MOT looking close.
I will try uploading a video onto youtube if I can work out how to connect the different footage into One continuous video.

The guys who have done all the work have now gone and bought Another project, so this car could be up for offers?.
