Anyone running one of these with their diesel swapped Cruiser ?
Seems like an easy and sleek way to monitor boost , EGT and trans temps

Definitely looks like a good piece of kit, not using it myself though. I really think most diesels, especially swaps should have EGT and boost. Trans temp wouldn't hurt either.

I think it would be an easy way to monitor everything ! Even without OBD2 anymore . Same price as isspro mechanical gauges too

I have not tried the 4BT, but Toyota designed an engine specifically for the 80 series 1HDT/1HDFT. We installed a 1HDFT/H151 3 years ago and put 60K miles on this rig doing long 9K miles expedition trips. IT IS FLAWLESS. Not a single issue. And gets 21-26 mpg. I think the total price considering that the engine bolts in without any frame mods is a wash.

But then again, this is just my humble experience. Each one has it's own. :).. Good luck to all.

Ofer,

I'm not so up to date on the transmission thing....

Does the H151 have an overdrive?

Also, how does the shifter sit in the truck compared to the original auto transmission? Did you have to alter the panel around the shifter.

Still hoping to do a transplant like you and I talked about... but this damn motor won't die! even with 360xxx miles on the original hg....

The manual is shorter by I think around 80 mm. You have to rebuild the hump, adjust the cross member support for the rear insulator and change the length of both drive shafts. The center console for the shifters is no longer avail so you have to be creative or buy an after market. I have a photo library, that you can scroll also with all the build.

For the cross member the frame has the holes for the new location but not threaded. I chose to use the old holes for the auto and just add a stainless plate forward to support the insulator.

10% overdrive done by my guru Georg @orangefj45. All my drivetrain projects are done by him for the past 15 years.

Does anyone have a part number for the lower radiator hose for a 4bt to a stock 80 series radiator , 2.25 to a 1.75 ID L shaped hose ? I can’t seem to find anything that fits like the old one I had , and the old ones part number is rubbed off

Has anyone here with a 4BT/4BTA swap had issues fitting an intercooler? I’m currently running the 4BTA but am having an issue with some plumbing , one of the coolant lines for the aftercooler is plumbed next to the exhaust manifold and is melting . I would like to swap to an intercooler but not sure due to space I have AC, dual batteries etc. In the way , the pictures attached are what I’m dealing with , the hose is just in a weird spot and I can’t seem to correct it , if someone has pictures of their swap would love to see , whether it’s intercooled or aftercooled ! Anything helps !

There is a good thread in the diesel section1hd-t intercooler or something like that. My bread van has the same after-cooler and no issues with melting hoses- not sure what the configuration is- that reminds me- I haven't started it in a couple years...
