what would you do? (engine-tranny)

ok,

here is my dilemma:

i might put a nice 2,2L Isuzu TurboDiesel engine in my cj6... i can get the whole assembly (eng.-tranny-transfer) in real good shape for say 1000,- bucks...

this would make a great engine for a crawler setup...

however, most likely the tranny-transfer wont ;o( ... (dont think either of them is really short)

so.... where would YOU make the cut.....?

a)
keep only the engine and have some granny tranny/transfer made to bolt up (how would this be done? an adapter before or behind the bellhousing???)

b)
keep the whole setup and bolt a 2nd transfer behind the first (w/ mods to the 1st transfer ...like cutting the front-driveshaft hump, and fabbing an adapter)

c)
.... fill in the blanks ... )



i am kinda clueless what would be the best way to go...

thx for your ideas

alfred

Re: what would you do? (engine-tranny)

from a mazda 4x4 mini-van (not the MPV) - kinda like a ford ecoline looking... its from a japanese truck (to be more specific, for a truck that was driven in japan).


Just came home from my garage-guy... the 1st gear is a .....

4,1:1 WOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!!

transfer is a 2,3 - 2,4 reduction...

so crawl ratio would be : 47:1 .... and if i manage to get my d18 behind it it would be ....116:1 .... this and a turbodiesel should do the trick ;o)

what we talked was to convert my D18 to a divorced transfer case, and if it is a must run a CV-shaft between transfer 1 and transfer2 to correct for angles...

we will try to put the eng-tranny-transfer-combo with a incline towards the rear (so that the rear sits higher than the motor - so we would avoid that the tr.1 hump gets in the way of transfer 2 hump)

the idea is that the 2nd transfer will sit lower and more to the right than the first one... so we would avoid any interference ... does this make sense to anyone???

later,

alfred

I would run the Isuzu setup and use a Zuki case behind it. They are already divorced and you can pick them up cheap, they're also small.
