I'm trying to post / sell a "KA24DE", but I'm confused about the phrasing.
- Does "KA24DE" need to be all caps like I have it?
- Is this a Nissan motor or a motor with a transmission?
- Is there a difference in a tranny & a transmission?
I've never seen it spelled in lower case, when referring to motor groups and types it is proper to use all caps. The KA you are trying to sell is just the motor. No, there isn't a difference between tranny and transmission. "Tranny" is slang for transmission and I only like to use the slang term when verbally talking about transmissions.
Trying to find a buyer for your KA might be hard as they are deliberately removed from 240 and replaced with such motors like SR20 or RB line so you would have to come across someone that wants their 240 back to stock or I believe the Nissan hard body trucks also came with the KA.
There's a few things going on here:
To help you figure out whether or not it's just the engine, here's a pic of a similar engine without the tranny (there's that word again. Not my fault, Fred and Barney are the ones typing.) The transmission attaches at the lower right side on this picture.
Just one more thing: The Term KA24DE refers to the engine, not to a engine + transmission combination.
