Or you could buy my whole turbo diesel hdj81 for 7500$ lockers and allLooking for a parts source for original Toyota engine parts.The motor is a 4.2 liter diesel turbo.Its out of a 1991 land cruiser 81 right hand drive.I need a replacement longblock and/or complete rebuild kit.
Just gotta overbite it a wee bit extra?This one was over ran and it cracked the head clean through the valve seats and apparently got hot enough it shifted the middle 2 cylinders sideways in the middle...it was sold to me as a rebuild able core...kinda hard to rebuild with significant block distortion.
Lol, not so much. The middle two cylinders were literally shifted, the top 2" of the middle 2 cylinders were shifted over an 1/8 inch off center, enough so that pulling the liners was a serious task and that you could see/feel the internal webbing of the block between cylinders. The machine shop told me they could maybe fix it but couldn't guarantee it. They'd have to bore it nearly 1/2" over and press a sleeve into the block and then bore the sleeve and press liners in, and they were worried they would be cutting into coolant jacket if they did it. Long story short, New old stock block was purchased.
