W- series Crankshaft, Pulley, Bolt & Washer Differences
On the W-series motors, the crankshaft front tip was lengthened by 18.7 mm (0.736) in. See illustration (*1). The crankshaft pulley width was also increased by 13.6 mm (0.535 in.) as shown (*2).
The pulley bolt was changed from M12 to M14, and the washer inner and outer diameters were increased. (See illustration.)
You can use a non W-series pulley on the W-series crank but a spacer must be used. Nissan part # 12308-V5321 was designed just for this purpose.
