I tried to keep the 1.0, need help with the swap.

84 SJ410 1.0 4 speed

Finally got around to working on her again. Got her cranked up and ran a little, and found out the crank case is full of water again. I figure head gasket or a crack. The radiator is also full of sludge and no water in the cylinders after running it, so it seems for the worse, but im not sure. So I guess im just going to fall to dropping in a more readily available 1.3 .

What do I have to do and get? Tranny? new drivelines? Is there any writeups on the swap. Id like to put a smallblock in and be done with it but cash is kinda short for projects right now.



Duane if you read this, did you here anything on that motor? And does your Roomate still have his EFI truck? Maybe we can work something out.

Re: I tried to keep the 1.0, need help with the swap.

I am going to do the same thing. I also intend to install the 1.3 on my SJ410, I have asked for help on the board but they don't really know the Sj410 as there aren't many int the US. If you are going to install the motor, tranny and wiring from the Sj413 it's much easier. I think we might just need to relocate the motor mounting points. The 1.3 motor mounts stay around 20 centimeters (measured by hand) more to the front than your actual 970cc

Id appreciate any details you come up with on your swap, your right, I think the whole thing would be the way to go, motor tranny and all. Theyre common in Canada and I think DannyL mighty have all the info we need. hopefully I can catch him in the chatroom.

Re: I tried to keep the 1.0, need help with the swap.

In my opinion it would be twice as easy to set the thing on a samurai frame. Thats what im gonna do with my SJ if i cant sell it. The 1.0 sits further back. You would have to cut off and reweld the mounts closer to the front plus i believe that tranny mounts different but dont quote me on that one. The SJ axles are smaller and therefore weaker. They should take the power of a stock 1.3 but if youre gonna go thru the trouble to changea motor why not jus put a 1600 16 valve in. Thats jus my opinion tho.

Call Brent at Trailtough. He can answer any question you may have.

But the SJ410 frame is cool because the springs are further inboard and you can flex like mad. If I were to do it again with access to an SJ410 AND a Samurai, I'd swap the drivetrain (engine, transmission, axles and all necessary wiring) onto the SJ410 frame and body.
