I have a 78 FJ40 that needs a new engine, I found one out of a 86 FJ60. What are the differences between the 2? Will I run into alot of problems or will it just bolt up? Any help or advice would be appricated.
Thanks

The Long blocks are very similar but you get the power steeering pump bracket holes.

If it were me, I would swap them and reassemble using all of your 1978 intake and exhaust. You make have to file the center mounting holes out in the intake just a few strokes.

Leave the Big Distributor and side cover in the FJ60 2F.

Go for it.......

The exhaust hook up is the only ? area, that is if you plan on using the 60 manifold......

Know the history of that 60 motor?

Exhaust hookup should be the same, going from a '78 3-piece manifold, to a 86 3-piece manifold?

But the EGR stuff did move around, didn't it...
