    Ok to rotate oil pan 180 degrees?

    I'm trying to copy anothernord and swap a 1kz-te into my 2001 Tacoma and I foolishly got a motor from a Hiace Regius instead of a Hilux so the oil pan hits the front differential. I know I should order the correct pan but it is going to be over $500 from Japan so my current idea is to flip the...

    V8 Swap: What am I up against ?

    I purchased a '72 fj40 a few weeks ago and was in the process of putting life back into it (a classic barn find, if you will) when a serious knock developed: spun bearings for sure.
