Hi.

Threw a rod out the side of a Hilux. Look for any recomendations for a rebuild or exchage engine supplier around Brisbane or SE Qld. The block is worth nothing now, but still need to get an engine back in to it. 170K's so it still worth doing.

Thanks for any info.

Hunt around the wreckers for the factory 3l turbo (early not the D4D) may even have the same engine mounts althiugh a stronger clutch may need to go in.

A friend of mine did that conversion.He brought another damaged vehicle to swap all the necessary parts over including the gearbox/transfer case.The front engine mounts had to be moved,the rear mounts lined up and the tailshaft fitted okay.The dash and ignition wiring had to be changed and as Lex said ECU etc. Although a very time consuming job it was a worthwhile conversion.1 drawback was that 5th gear is a different ratio and the speedo was out but bigger tyres would help fix that.

Good luck Wally

Depending on where and how bad the damage is you may be able to patch the block.
If you can do the work yourself and it is has only a broken rod and no other major damage you can get away with just replacing the rod and a weld repair done to the block, Its a cheap option if thats what is needed.

Try Qld motor recyclers (QMR) in Rocklea.
QMR

I have dealt with them before in getting parts.
