    diesel cj7

    as some of you may know i have been talking about swaping a diesel in to a jeep
    but could not afford to buy the cummins or perkins ...........

    so my cousine stumbled apone some toyota mine trucks
    he said the one he was getting (he had first pick) runs and drives...

    the one i could get did not run .... oh well i thought how bad could it be?

    so last year in the spring i picked up two beat to near death..

    it took me half the day to get my cousins truck running (the one that ran right)

    and well we just dragged mine off of my float.

    then it took me about 6 hours to figure out what was wrong with mine
    wiring
    and teeth missing on the starter ring

    it ran
    looking further into the engine it had no water in it ??/
    yes it holds water fine
    the cylinder head is a fine rust red? and the block is greasy black
    new injector pump new fuel filter?

    any how the short story is i beleave the engine in the mine truck i bought is rebuilt
    or at least has a new head on it


    so i drove the truck up to the garage the other day drained the antifreez and started to disconect every thing from the engine

    now it is out and lyeing in front of the truck

    now it the cj7's turn to have its power plant removed

    short list

    i think i might need a lift pump ,,, unless the toyota has one ? never heard one running?
    clean the engine up
    measure the blocks up and the engine mounts

    sing and dance naked in the back yard

    hey i live in the country no one will see

    and that is a good thing
    what i post get deleted so never mind

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm an oil burning jeep, one of my dreams. me and diesel are the best of buds, not a big fan of the bills but thats life

    we have a 4cyl deere motor that runs the harvester, it would be about the right size to fit under the hood of a jeep and makes 100ish HP. only problem is it tips the scales at 800 pounds. something for me to think about for when the 4.0L give up in 2038+/- a couple years LOL

    well i was out with a tape measure

    looks like i will have a 1/2 inch to spare at the fire wall

    so it looks easy enought to build an engine mount
    the fab shop will be doing that
    not sure how the trans and transfercase will fit as i dont have the one out of the jeep yet
