Howdy,

I have Landcruiser with a replacement motor. To prepare for a rebuilding job, I need to determine if I have an early or late model 2H.

Engines from 8/80-3/82 use a piston with a 27mm pin diameter,
4/82-11/84 has a 29mm pin diameter.
So there are substantial differences when it comes to ordering parts.

Any suggestions on how to proceed without taking the motor out?

The block has number 68010 stamped, the serial No. is 1020188.

thanks
Werner

Take the engine # to toyota and they should be able to help.
There is an early and late head too.

Hi Andrew
I have a Dyna Twin cab truck that has a 2H enging (not going), and wondering if to reco the motor or buy a secondhand one.
Do you know if a 12ht replaces a 2h ? or do you have to alter engine mounts and get adaptors etc ?
Thanks
Regards
Neil

I think taking the ID to a toyota spares place would be the best, also the early ones had sleeves

A MM to Outandabout David on this forum may be able to help you.

Hi everybody,

thanks for replies.

>engine # to toyota and they should be able to help
I am still waiting for answers (Argentina and Switzerland).....

>There is an early and late head too
thanks for pointing this out, I did not know

>thought about buying a good runner from a later cruiser? say a 12ht
To buy used stuff in Argentina is not advisable, also not sure if I could even find one. Also learnt that better stick with things one finally got to know and had to tweak anyway.
I took out the original F2 from this FJ45 LV-KCW 1980 and went through a bit of adapting to place this 2H, thus prefer to rebuilt this one.

Frankly, the 2H work wonderful, what is better using a 12ht?

>belts and all are different and wahat about rom 84-90?
belts: I suppose you refer to outside belts to alternator etc?
rom: goes beyond my English

By the way, went to “Abbreviations” to see if ROM is in there, no.
But I did find WTF, which I use for my email address and signature, ‘cause these are my initials. Well, I might change this habit.....

best,

Werner
