An OHV engine of 1,299 cc (79.3 cu in), the J13 was used in the 1964 to 1967 Datsun 411 sedan and wagon (originally only in the sporting "SS" series). Bore and stroke are 73.0 x 77.0 mm. It was also produced for the Nissan 520 and 521 trucks from 1967 to 1969 when it was replaced by the Nissan L engine. Mexican-assembled Bluebird 510s also received the J13 engine.
The larger (1.5-litre) J15 has been used in various Nissan Pickup Trucks like the 720 in various overseas markets through the 1970s and 1980s and some sedans like the 710. It was also used in the A321 Datsun Cabstar. The J15 produces 77 PS (57 kW).
A 1.6-litre iteration of the OHV J-series four cylinders was also built, mainly for utility vehicles. Bore and stroke are 78.0 x 82.0 mm for a total displacement of 1,567 cc. This engine was also installed by Nissan's Taiwanese partner Yue Loong in several iterations of the Nissan Violet, long after Nissan themselves had stopped using OHV engines in passenger cars.
- 1972.09-1976.01 Nissan/Datsun Homer, Cabstar T20-series (81 PS/60 kW at 5,400 rpm)
- Yue Loong Violet 707 - Taiwanese built Nissan Violet (80 hp/60 kW SAE at 5,200 rpm)
The J20 is a 2.0 L (1,994 cc) engine. It produces 109 hp (81 kW) and was used in the 1965-73 Nissan Cedric. A version of Volkswagen's two-litre, "JL" five-cylinder engine was used in the (Nissan) Volkswagen Santana with 110–140 PS (81–103 kW) and was called the "J" engine by Nissan, but it shares nothing with the original J20 even though it happens to have the same exact displacement.
