Good point that Steve, I will be cutting it off when I’m next working on the axle.The welded on box section on the axle could this be a jacking point if the diffs are offset would make some sort of sense to stop the vehicle going on the piss especially when loaded tis a thought
I have looked into the Colorado engine, but the gearbox from the Colorado would cause more work as the front prop exits at the n/s. Mine is a 4 speed gearbox so if the Colorado engine did bolt to my gearbox I feel the 4 speed would be a compromise.Hi good looking garage you have it will fill up very quickly just like my one and engine wot about a3.L 90 Colorado good looking 40s .
Hi, a Colorado engine and a gearbox from a J70 could end up been costly, more than I was looking to spend.To use the 1kz from a colorado you would need to use a kzj/ lj70 gearbox with the engine. The Daihatsu 2.8td is based on the B engine and there's lots of them around for sale.
