    I'm a total newby so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. I found a 2H 6 Cylinder Diesel motor on craigslist that looks to be in very good condition and the seller claims it's a direct boltup to an fj40 tranny. Anyone able to confirm this for me? Is there room for a six diesel (I thought the BJs had fours). Thanks in advance. Lynn

    Eheheh it's so curious! Here in Italy everybody wants to pass from diesel to petrol engine and in the US is the opposite! :D

    To answer your question I can tell you that I mounted on my FJ a gearbox from an HJ 61 (the engine is 12H-T, in practice the 2H with turbo) and it fits perfectly.

    About bolts and engine holders I con't help you, but I'm sure that the room will be enough: 2H and F (or 2F) have basically the same size.

    In Italy we have a lot of BJs with B and 3B engine: they're both 4 cylindres but the room in the car is the same as in the FJs.

    The 2H uses the same bellhousing and transmission as the 2F. Easy swap.

    I saw the same motor on Craigs list and wondered the same thing.
    Call Luke at www.4x4labs.com he is familiar with the diesels.
