Has any body out there got any information on the 4JG2 3.1 ltr turbo diesel motor from izusu . I am trying to identify build date from the engine number and am looking for any workshop specs for this motor . This motor was used in a conversion for my Dad's hilux and was an import .Any help greatly appreciated.

Fatboy, This sounds like the 3 litre Isuzu that were fitted to land rover defenders, before the current t/diesels. Might be able to cross reference something from firm specializing in defenders/rovers. they reckon they were noisy, but pulled like a train. See ya..

Is that the motor that was in the Jackaroo? I think the isuzu engine in the Landrover was a 3.9 Isuzu. If that was the Jackaroo engine the try the yahoo group, Ozzuzu.

Yeah, you're right, it was the 3.9L in L/Rovers, had a bad day yesterday. It's just rained here, so maybe today will be better, Happy New Year..

Happy New Year Bob. I'm no expert, just read about the 3.9 somewhere.

I'm fairly sure that the Jackaroo had a 3.1TD before the current 3.0TD, but could be wrong. The Ozzuzu guys would be more than happy to help.

Have a look at this URL which is the main Isuzu site.

http://www.isuzu.co.jp/world/pt/jseries.htm

It does not list the 4JG2 but does list the 4JG1.

Hope this helps.

The 3.1 turbodiesel was used for quite a few years in Bighorns (Jackaroo), MUs (domestic Jap SWB Frontera) and Wizards (LWB Frontera). They are quite common in NZ and there is some info on the web. There's a NZ wrecker specialising in Isuzu who might be able to supply some info. www.truckbits.co.nz I think (lost the URL due to hard drive death). Try an Anzwers search of NZ.
