    Default Nissan 1400 Service Help

    How often should it be serviced?

    What spec oil does it use?

    What is the oil capacity?

    Oil capacity just over 3l.

    10kkm is fine.

    15w40. If it is a high miler, 25w50 (API SL)

    Wow, good old days. Always serviced mine. Can remember when spark plugs and points were replaced, it was tricky to start. Had to use Top Dead Center on piston one(plug out, screw driver in hole, turn engine until the piston at its highest point), switch ignition ON, turn distributor until you hear the click from the spark, then start. Then set 10 degrees faster or slower, cannot remember. Enjoy great work horses!

    Sorry , but I only had the physical manual that I left with my brother in-law in South-Africa when I emigrated. There was a cd inside if I remember correctly, so I will check with him, maybe he can make you a copy.

    Ooooo, I can't remember.

    What I do remember is that the dizzy needs to turn a bit. The timing is not at the same place as the points were.
