Yeah I am gutted. I'll try and find another body, but they are pretty rare. This one was almost perfectly straight too. Two centimetres to the left and I wouldve missed it. I am amazed at the damage.

Driving for 11 years and its the first time I've ever hit anything.

Upgrade the front axle to a 1980's disc type from an F-20 with booster, you already would have an alloy adapter between the bellhousing to gearbox to fit the toyota motor up ..You could probably redrill that to suit an escort / cortina bellhousing and throw out bearing carrier.
I had to make that part when I converted a 2.0 ltr ford escort motor into mine, engine mount blocks were made up out of 100mm x 50mm duragal box welded to the chassis .. to take the standard escort rubber mounts..F-20 radiator with top hose moved to the opposite side was spaced back from the front support aprox 75mm and a standard escort fan and shroud was fitted and used .. had twin thermo fans on at first but it kept over heating..
TE cortina accelerator cable( same as escort but longer ) fitted to a modified accelerator pedal top ( just welded on an escort one ) ..
Escort clutch throw out leaver at the bell housing was converted to a hook to take the standard diahatsu clutch cable,a toyota clutch plate is used with the escort clutch preasure plate and a bronze spigot bush is made to suit the diahatsu gearbox imput shaft end / escort crank, a set of escort extractors was shortened in the down tubes to suit and fitted to a 2.5 "free flow exhaust.. very good power to be had with these free reving engine's with the low gearing of the diahatsu's . only drawback was it realy needed a 5 speed gearbox from an F-50 diesel as it pulled aprox 4000 + rpm at a 100 klmh on the highway..

Hey Vagg.
Think you'd have dramas with a rocky shaft as they are aprox 150mm longer overall side to side in the diffs.. As for the 3Y they are gutless and heavy on fuel, Well my 3Y powered Rocky is , even after it was rebuilt and with extractors and a towing cam added ... It wouldnt pull a sailor of my sister .Also the Rocky gearbox and transfer I think may give you trouble with clearances ( think the rocky is longer ) also the rocky box is weaker than the scat and a lot higher geared , also Rocky's have their handbrake set up in the rear brake drums and Scats are on the transfer case rear out put shaft ..
The 3Y Rocky realy does struggle on hills and when loaded with a light weight camper trailer in the sand tracks going to Double Island Point and the barges to Fraser Island ..

Heres my 1981 F50. 2.5 Diesel and all orginal. Was a farm workhorse but just spent a few grand on it bringing it back to life. New 2pac paint job, suspension, brakes, wheel bearings, seat belts and other general maintenance that hadn't been done for years. Improved the gearing slightly by fitting 31x10.5 tyres (not in photo) sits comfortably on about 90kms/hr which is enough to get me out to the dirt or the beach. Built a shelf in the back and can remove the front passenger seat and extend to allow me to sleep in it overnight and Im 5ft 10in!! there is nothing these little beauties can't do. Its starts first go, idles like an old cat and has all the complexity of a lawn mover. 2 hoses and a belt thats all I've got to worry about.
