    Ok ... here we go again, but this time more emphasis on Resto

    NO rust 1966 FJ40 from Alaska

    PLan;
    Very traditional exterior, awesome drivetrain, and bad A!! interior
    Colour - Toyota Calvary blue, traditional white hard top, white front grill/bezel and powder coated custom 16" white smoothie wheels with 33's
    OME 2" suspension with Fox shocks (again)
    Crate Cummins R2.8 Diesel engine, GM NV4500 5 speed tranny, Toyota split case
    and lots of cool crap

    so far ....
    Stripped down to bare steel and epoxied

    What kind of adapter/bell housing do you need to go between the 2.8 and NV4500?

    Thanks

    AA GM bell housing/kit, then unfortunately some expensive pieces from Axis industries

    Cheers

    How far back does the motor / trans and adapters put your transfer case?
    Niagara Ontario here, thinking of a 2.8 swap down the road also.

    Also interested in seeing you adapter setup for this combo, im on the fence between an R2.8 or a 4BT swap with an NV4500 behind it in the future

    Beautiful work so far, looking forward to following this build.

    Dont know quite yet but we will by early next month.

    Guys I'll do my best to take lots of pictures and gather lots of details as I know a LOT of people are looking at this engine. Actually I've been exchanging emails with Tor over at TorBuilt and he's been fooling around with tuning this little beast of an engine and right now he claims he's putting down over 400 torque AT the rear wheels... thats seriously impressive

    Stay tuned, If it can be done I'll find a way to do it LOL

    Cheers
    Steve

    I have an early style gas filler cut out that matches your front if you want it.

    The 4BT is about 300 lbs more...not as smooth and quiet as the R2.8. But if you want a cheaper mechanical injection motor than its a choice.
