Timing Cover Hardware Kit, 70-83 Z/ZX

Timing Cover Hardware Kit, 70-83 Z/ZXQuantity in Basket:none
Code: 14-1255


One major issue that comes with replacing timing components on an L-series engine is broken bolts. Over time, these bolts weaken, stretch, and eventually become frozen in the block. In many cases you can remove them successfully; however, re-using those old bolts is simply asking for trouble down the road. This kit replaces all of the timing cover mounting bolts and lock washers with brand new hardware. Also includes a full set of water pump bolts/lock washers and the small Timing Indicator bolt/lock washer. Alignment pins, gaskets and bolts for mounting other components not included. Some of these are available separately, see Related Items below.

Image Note:
As with all images in The Z Store, manufacturers at times change the appearance of their products faster than we are able to get new images processed. These bolts are one of many examples. The fit and function is correct, but the design and appearance of some is now different. New image coming soon.

Water Pump Note:
This kit includes a set of water pump bolts and lock washers. You do not need to purchase a separate set of water pump bolts with this kit.

The top/bottom bolt mentioned in the kit components is used in 2 locations. First, 2 of them fit through the cylinder head and thread into the top of the timing cover (the two top-down bolts). The other 2 fit into the lower corners of the timing cover; one exposed toward the driver's side and the other behind the oil pump. The bolts that thread into the bottom of the timing cover to hold the oil pan in place are not included in this kit.

Image Note:
Most Nissan bolts have changed from the original zinc coating (the color coating that looks like CAD Plating) to a silver coating. Unfortunately, Nissan has not been consistent on what they send out during the course of this change. The exact combination you receive will vary based on our inventory.
