    Fitted a new exceedy clutch kit and in went the engine.
    Engine mounts don’t line up so made some extra bits on the chassis.

    Coming along, will you have to replace the rear wings and inner arches?

    Nice you have the 3ltr engine, I was looking at the 70 on eBay with the 3ltr engine but went for more than I can justify until I absolutely need a new engine.

    It is slowly but surly.

    Im making the inner and outer arches.

    With the 3ltr, your prob best going the route Ben took and look out for a 4 runner as they have a mechanical fuel pump plus there will be parts like steering pipes to use and a load of parts for you to sell.

    Yeah Bens been filling me in luckily, this is being advertised with the 1 kz engine but as in the later car I guess won’t have matching parts that you mention I’ll get with a 4 runner? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/323182704481

    I don’t actually need an engine yet and as I’m already in deep with the restoration it can wait.

    Good effort on making those, I had to buy mine, long wait and not cheap.

    If you can get it for handy money you can use the engine etc and sell everything else.
    Off memory you will need a sump, ps pipes and oil pickup from a surf or 4Runner as it’s the wrong way round in a Colorado.
    I’m 99% sure you can use your 2.4 diesel pump.

    I’ll hold off until I need an engine, to much money going out, getting married at the end of the month and current project is up in the air.

    About the only thing anyone remarked on when i bought it was the sound of the engine being ok but no history with the car so not sure when timing belt was last changed.
