I completed a "from scratch" rebuild of my 3B over the last winter. Most of my parts came from Amayama and MegaZip (bearings, cylinder liners, pistons, etc.) but all of my gaskets and seals came from Engines Australia. The one notable exception was the oil pump gears that came from City Racer in the US. I had to take my injectors and fuel pump to a local diesel shop (I don't have the equip or expertise). On previous rebuilds of B engines I discovered that there are some really s***ty cylinder liners out there -- which I think came from China via either Specter or CruiserParts (I can't remember).

Having said that, I have never used E-Bay for any of my engine bits, so I cannot comment on their stuff, although MegaZip uses E-Bay quite a lot for promotion. Bear in mind that everything has a loooong lead time.

If you can find a source for a 24v EDIC, that would be wonderful !

Good Luck ! :)

@OGBeno did a complete 3B rebuild thread within the last year or two, with as many OEM parts as possible (I know, imagine that.)

Do a quick search and I’m sure you’ll be able to find it. Lots of good tech in that thread, too.

Thanks for your reply. Oddly after literally scouring the world for 4 Conrods(which I located, many thanks Matt) I was offered a 270000Ks 13B-T engine for a price I couldn't refuse. I'll still be rebuilding the old engine also. Thanks all for your comments/help.
