    I found an automatic 240 in a junkyard. they want to sell the motor for 400. i was supposed to go hear it run today but it's raining and i don't feel like swimming through 3 feet of mud. i saw under the valve cover yesterday and it all looks clean and well lubed. its in the yard for a busted rear quarter. i was looking for a blown out motor though. i want to rebuild it with better pistons, etc. i don't know if i want to waste 400 bucks on a motor that i'll tear apart when someone else might just need a replacement motor

    does anyone think it would be worthwhile to swap the new motor in, rebuild mine and then swap them again and sell the motor back? it seems like a lot of work, but there would be no wiring changes, and i could save some cash

    altime is FWD i believe.

    depends on your years. 90-91 is sohc and 92+ is dohc. never get the sohc, its a tardcart of electrical problems. :angry: ive actually got one sitting in my backyard. it drifted great last week, and it poured as well. ugh.

    Yes, the Altima is front wheel drive.

    The 89-90 240SX was SOHC KA24E, and 91+ was DOHC KA24DE.

    I would buy the scarp yard motor, rebuilt that, and then swap over all necesary components to get her running.

    i think it has something to do with the hatch. since the coupes were just S13's its.

    plus most hatches were 180SX's so i think its a different model, but i could be wrong.
