Re: \'85 SJ410 found in junkyard; what\'s it worth?
Grab the Xfer if nothing else, it is the mini lobster unless someone swaped it, and also should have the DS Ebrake drum. It has 11% lower gearing than a sami has. It might also be able to be converted to 4:16 gears, I have had conflicting versions on the 85.
The primary difference of the 410's is the springs are under the frame, instead of offset. This can help for tire clearance, if you use the 3" wider sami axles.
1L motor (cast iron block)
10% softer springs
4 sp unless you get lucky (if its the 5 sp for the 1L I might be interested)
different engine/tranny mounts
front calipers use a different pad, but the calipers will interchange with the sami
completly different ECM and intake setup, it should have a 1bbl side draft carb.
Thats mostly it.
Compared to the sami its rare in the US, because it was never a direct import. quite a few went to Canada and Hawaii, and elswhere in the world. I doubt a tin top would comand a ton of interest, but a PU now...
