Check if you have spark and the ignition timing beacse if sometime someone ran this car with E85 the timing has to be changed. also check if you got fuel because also can be a bad fuel pump

# Phonexius : Well one of the issues is when u want to start it up, id doesn't wanna crank, the compression is perfect just for some reason you don't hear it nor it want to crank up.Attached a compression gauge, the compression is good, put the spark plugs in my 180, they are fine. This engine is just tired of runing I think, will keep on working a bit more on it!

As sleepinmonkey said, it could be a bad fuel pump or busted fuel lines. And also try to adjust the timing chain. You should see that someone should've already mark the timing on the crank and camshaft.

Thanks guys, I forgot about timing totaly xD, as fuel lines go the engine is not in the car its on a standalone dyno for the engine where I try to fire it up so fuel lines on it are good and the car never run on E85, asked the owner about the fuel he said he poured Super 98. Thanks again for the advices I appreciaty all the help I can get whit this engine to make it run again, I really hope that I don't need to swap it!

That's what I was gonna say, a fuel pump! But I didn't think about timing... you guys are pretty knowledgeable on what might be wrong..!

3 days later.........
We found the culprit for the engine failiure and dunno should I say funny or sad since in one hand the issue is funny in other its sad....
The previouse owner took the engine to get it bore and stroke probably to get 2.8l out of it and they screw things up, the cylinders were bored diagonaly so when the piston goes up, it actualy leaves a 2mm space between it and the cylinder wall and all the fuel and air goes down it and no compression happends, dunno how the instrument saw compression.



Afther the culprit was found, it was to take step 2, fixing the issue, easiest and cheapest solution is one that I hate to do but I had, I bought an SR20DE, removed the 1.5JZ out of the 180 installed it in the R34 and installed the SR20 in to the 180SX.

Aslo there are some more changes on the 180SX, I took it to a track on Wednesday morning to blow off the negative energy that acumulated in me from that RB25 problems and met a guy that lives 4 blocks away from me and he has a blue 240SX whit a custom VQ38DETT producing 750hp and while drifting we noticed each others car and had a chat later on. He loved my spirit rei front end and side skirts and offered a swap, at first I wasn't shure but I said hell yea why not, we went to my place I removed my front bumper, fenders and side skirts and then we removed those parts from his car, afther that he said "I am going to change my hood to a custom made one for more space when closing it" and gave me his DMax hood, whit the Works 9 fenders, 326 delux side skirts and Type X Hot road bumper. Later that day I sold my old hood to Cate to cover some of my expences :D

Also I invited my buddies from STS garage on a S-Chassis meet and now wanna let you all know who wanna join us, I will wait for all participiants at Aiso Street Parking Garage the adress is 101 Judge John Aiso St, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA. Hope to see a lot S-chassis!!!

Look at that beauty peaking trough the front grill :D

Could you of gotten bigger pistons and made the RB work? Or could bought a new one by selling the sr20 or 1.5jz to help fund a new engine...?

Nah, don't wanna mess too much whit it also RBs are way more expencive then an SR20 and since SR20 came in Silvias why not take the 1.5J out of the 180 and put in the R34 think economicaly :D

And thank you all for the kind words

Funny thing is that I invested more money in to the 1.5JZ then an RB26 costs and also I will need to save every penny from now on since the costs on the R33 are going sky high really fast!
