Anyone know anything about 2wd Isuzu pickups???

I know this is an off-road forum and I found a lot of valuable info when I had my Toyota and Samurai but I was wondering if anyone on here knew much about 2wd Isuzu pickup trucks? Are there any forums like these targeted to Isuzu pickups? I just picked up a 1992 S-model for rather cheap but it needs a little TLC. It has the 2.3 carbed motor and runs strong but the motor is rather oily top to bottom. The timing belt looks good but does have a little oil on it which makes me think the front seal might be leaking. I know the valve cover gasket is leaking and I would bet some oil is coming from the oil pan gasket as well. I was wondering about how long these little engines go? If I thought I could squeeze another 50k out of it I would glady go ahead and do the timing chain and replace the seals. I have a Haynes manual and it says to replace the oil pan gasket you must loosen the motor mounts and lift the motor at least 4 inches? Does this sound right? I don't put too much faith in those Haynes manuals.
