FWIW, getting a 1HZ here is easy. The hard part is coming up with the bellhousing and bits to mate the H55f (with the correct input shaft) to it. THAT's the expensive part. I have three times as much money in everything from the flywheel back on my 1HZ than I do in the engine at this point, and I got a steal on everything I picked up...

If you are considering WVO, then indirect injection is probably a bit more suitable for you. Don't ask me why, but the common wisdom is that direct injection doesn't like the WVO or bio fuels as much. Probably not a huge problem with it, but the IDI engines love it. My 2LT-E gets better mileage, lower EGT, and of course better smelling exhaust on B99.

Well all, I made the jump. I picked up a 1985 OM617.952 motor out of an 85 300CD with stated 148,000 miles on it. I will be doing a compression test on it in the next couple weeks hoping all is good. I will start a thread on the build as soon as I get everything lined up and checked out. Please do not expect a "Ricardo quality" thread but I will do my best to let you all know what and how things are going. There will be certain stages of the swap that may interest some more than others, if anyone is interested in a given stage please let me know as the build progresses and I will be happy to have you come over and share in the swap.. Thank you all for your input and advice!!!

By the way if this does all go as well as I am hoping it will, I may be interested in doing this swap for and or helping others, we will see.

My decision to go this way is based on not wanting to tear the 40 up (remove the 5.7L TBI) it runs too good and is a great trail rig with plenty of mod options available. I wanted to build a rig more suited to the expedition including long range comfort and reliability. I got some Toyota E-lockers for the front and rear, have not decided on the gearing just yet.. I think the Runner will make a great overlander though.. I will keep you up to date as things proceed.. Right now I am working on a new ride for my daughter.. 1987 corolla FX-16 GT-S . what a blast!! Thanks again for keeping me in mind!!

Wow Brian, I just read your sig, and you've significantly increased your herd in a short period of time! But I want to know more about your spring green 1970!

Interesting!!
I still have mixed emotions about my FJ-Cruiser. I really enjoyed building and running it! I however, did not like what was happening with the finder bulging issue and the throw out bearing issue with the 6-spd. I guess my feeling is, if you want a cruiser for driving on road and mild to medium off road, they are fine. I do not think I would consider putting an additional 25k into this platform no mater how COOL it is.. Now, putting it into some of the other platforms available today might be a better fit for me.. Why doesn't Toyota just start offering the diesel in our market??
Just my 02..

Regards WVO and fuel tanks... coat it. Done. Had an issue with ethanol and a Ducati plastic tank, coating fully resolved the issue.

My DI Powerstroke will run on WVO, used motor oil, mixed diesel and gas... probably hemp squeezin's... so I don't get the DI vs. IDI difference there.
