I was showing my mum the course in my Hilux Surf which is about a million times to big for it and managed to get it stuck in a stupid position, having no other choice she ha...

My brothers 87 E reg 410 has a staggered 56mm and 60mm rectangle spaced holes. My transfer box for some reason has a square spaced 60mm spaced holes. A fl...

Re: Other engine swaps besides 1.6 vitara?

i will probably end up putting or at least trying to put in a xjs jag v12's i have availible. The 3rd option would be the v12 but i dont think there will be anywhere to sit if i fit that :p There won't be a lot of space with the XJS gearbox and the exhaust manifolds come down were the chassis rails...

Re: SJ410 1.6 conversion front prop

Ah so the larger hole diameter flange still fits to the UJ. That's handy to know.

As for strength the solids are probably stronger for impact but torque forces turning it I would still bet the fatter ones are stronger. Like gearing, the fatter one is less likely to twist.

Re: Other engine swaps besides 1.6 vitara?

Yea I guess, really wanted to do something with the 2.2, I feel bad about taking it out lol

Ecu's are easy enough on older engines, newer engines are all can bus.

SJ410 1.6 conversion front prop

I have a B reg SJ410 which has a 1.6 conversion which is about 90% finished. The engine manifold leaked and hoses where going left right and centre with no real purpose. The guy I bought it from had a mate do the work so wasn't 100% sure what parts had been changed. He believed the gearbox, transfer...
