OT- Cummins diesel swap into a FJ55
I know this is a jeep board but I trust you all's large amounts of knoledge for much more then just problems with my CJ. A buddy of mine was recently given a 76 FJ55 landcruiser "Iron Pig". We have been planning a build up on it including bobing the body, a SOA, and an entire drivetrain swap. Our ultimate engin would be a dodge cummins diesel for the but loads of torque and nice sound. Since the cruiser is already so damn heavy we dont much care about the weight of the diesel. We are planning on trying to find a forest service diesel pickup at a government auction for hopefully a good pice. Then swapping the entire drivetrain over.
Anyone have any comments or ideas on this? Is it doable? What came stock in those big ugly green dodge ram diesels as far as axles and tranny and xcase? Would this be swapable into a cruiser? Anyone have a source for a government auction?
anything will help.
