YD25 Engines

At YD25.com.au we build reconditioned exchange engines.  

Our reconditioned exchange engines are built according to the following protocol:

Timing Chains
All engines are fitted with our timing chain conversion kit which includes genuine Nissan duplex timing chains and premium quality parts made in Japan and Australia. Chains and sprockets are covered by a five year 100,000kms warranty

Cylinder Head  
All engines are fitted with a new cylinder head, new valves, new lifter buckets, new shims.

Cylinder Block
The deck is machined and the bores are measured. If the bores are within standard specification they are given a very light hone. If the bores are outside standard specification they are bored oversize. The main bearing caps and the crankshaft tunnel are checked for alignment. If outside of standard specifications the caps and block are machined then precision line bored. The oil galleries welsh plugs and ball bearings are removed allowing total cleaning of the oil gallery system. Oil gallery ball bearings are replaced with BSP tapped bungs. New oil gallery welsh plugs are fitted.

Crankshaft journals are measured and if within standard specification they are given a very light polish. If the journals are outside standard specification they are reground under size. The ball bearings in the oil galleries are removed to allow thorough cleaning of the oil galleries. The end is tapped and fitted with grub screws.

Conrod little ends are fitted with new bushes. Conrod big ends are resized. In some cases we line bore conrod big ends and replace original rod bolts with Automotive Racing Products bolts.

Harmonic Balancer
Correct torqueing of the harmonic balancer bolt requires special tools (that most mechanics don't have).  This is why all our exchange engines are fitted with harmonic balancers.  Correct torqueing to Nissan specifications prevents damage caused by the woodrift key flogging in the crankshaft keyway.

Fuel Pump
All engines are fitted with a fuel pump using the correct alignment shim to ensure accurate sprocket and chain alignment.  This will maximise sprocket and chain life.  We fit a pump you supply.

Internal Engine Balancing
Internal parts are balanced to race tolerances by Brisbane Engine Balancing Pty Ltd. Pistons, piston pins and conrods are balanced to one tenth of one gram. As our engines are balanced the balance shaft assembly is not required. No balance shaft adds to reliability and fuel saving.

Piston Rings
Many other engine assemblers use after market piston rings. The issue with these rings is that the rings have to much end gap. This results in excessive blow by. Fitting genuine rings ensures end gaps are to Nissan specifications. Genuine rings are designed by Nissan to run-in with full synthetic oil 5w 30.

We use Japanese trimetal crankshaft bearings.These bearings have a copper layer on the steel bearing shell. Conrod little end bearings. We have found that aftermarket conrod little end bearings excessively wear the piston pins. For this reason we use genuine Nissan Conrod little end bearings.

We warrant our engines for a period of 12 months or 20,000 kms (which ever comes first).  The timing chains and sprockets are warranted for 5 years or 100,000 kms (which ever comes first). Only full synthetic oil 5w 30 must be used.  Using any other engine oil voids warranty. Driving to destruction voids all warranty claims. Coolant loss resulting in over heating voids all warranty claims. Warped cylinder heads, gouging in cylinder head is evidence of extreme over heating.   YD25 is not responsible for any issues as a result of poor engine installation procedures by workshops. Radiator cores and heater cores in YD25 vehicles are isolated from the body by Nissan. Connecting a multi meter to the engine block and radiator core or heater core shows voltage. Earthing or grounding the radiator core or heater core rapidly increases corrosion and electrolysis. Earthing or grounding the radiator or heater core voids warranty. Incorrect coolants and mixed coolants voids warranty.

Automotive Racing Products
We stock YD25 ARP fastners, conrod bolts. main stud kits and head stud kits. Customers can have their exchange engine upgraded with these high performance parts.

We at YD25.com.au hope you have found this information useful.
