Hilux 1985 LN65 engine upgrade

Unread post by elliesfather » November 30th, 2017, 11:26 pm

Hi all, new to this so here we go,,,,
OK. I know what you are all going to say with my question and the subject will most likely been hammered to death, BUT I do need help and direction with my new project. :purplex:
Just bought a 1985 LN65, 120K's, one owner barn find. Engine has seized due to lack of oil.
Mains and big ends most likely welded to crank. Top end?, soon find out when I get the motor out and strip her.
I have been offered a Hilux surf, 2.4 turbo diesel, 1989. I have been told its an LN130. Going to have a nosey at it this weekend.
Is this a straight swap or is there going to be an EFI problem. The engine is still in the surf so I can get everything.
I want to keep her diesel and keep it a simple build,,, I just love the shape on the LN65,,,,
Ok, Im all yours,,,
