Toyota Diesels

Anyone know if the Toyota 4 cylinder diesel 2.4 or 2.8 motor sold in any trucks or cars in the United States or Canada? Would this motor fit in a Sami? I have never seen one up close so I'm not sure if it has better dimensions compared to the VW diesel.

Re: Toyota Diesels

k i remember this question from a long time ago.

answer is... That it wouldnt really be worth it. they say that the weight of the toy diesel is TOO heavy, and so id be better to get the 20r or someother toy engine. or i think they were saying that it was comparable to a 4.3?

just trying to help ya out, i know there might be some people (not naming names) wont want to answer since its already been answered. HEHE

peace

Re: Toyota Diesels

Minipigg, I know they were available in Canada because a friend of mine has a Toyota pick-up with the diesel motor. Sorry I can't answer the second part of your question.

Re: Toyota Diesels

I thought that Tom Bensen (?? on the spelling) (on one of the other Sami list's) is almost done with his LWB sami with a Toy Diesel in it. I will try to see if he is around and ask him what he ended up with.

Re: Toyota Diesels

TB and SKY replied to your qustion about the TOY Diesels.

Yo gary, the motor in my LWB is a 1984 toyota 3L. 2.8 liter diesel. This motor was offered in 4x4 trucks in Canada for some time. It was offered in the U.S. in 1985 only as I understand it. AND only in 4x2 trucks. The motor fits perfectly. Let me know if you need any more info. TB

I'll add what I know, the smaller motor, 2.4 was available as far back as 82? And was in a very limited 4x4 vehicles, only reason I know is because I have found 2 of them that are 1 owner rigs. They seem under powered, but a turbo could easly fix that. SKY

Re: Toyota Diesels

Yes please tell me more about this conversion. Would I have to go SPOA to make the motor fit? It is my understanding the VW diesel has to go SPOA because it doesnt clear the front drivetrain. And I was told I would also have to put at least a 2 inch body lift on my rig. Please tell me how you did yours and what my options are. Also what kinda power did these motors have stock and
