Not mine, and I don't know the seller.
Local pickup only and it's currently in a '92'Amigo, which the seller will include if wanted. Location is Shepherd, MI.

It has the oil recovery reservoir which was normally included with factory 3rd gen engines. That doesn't guarantee 3rd gen rods, but it's an indicator.

Here's the listing. My guess is that the Amigo is rusted out, but just a hunch. And the hardtop on the Amigo ought to make it worth dragging home.

NOT MINE.

This 4JB1 long block shows up in my eBay notification emais almost every day. It is clearly an industrial version (gear driven cam?), but parts from an automotive 4JB1-T just might convert it for road use. It's pricey, but if you have a 4JB1 that needs an overhaul, this just might be a better option.

Certainly is a well kept rig. Probably has a nice euro-spec diesel in it that we never had a chance to see. Too bad the steering wheel is on the wrong side. Ha!

My first thought too, but nope. It states "Petrol". :(

The engine compartment picture clearly shows a 4ZE1.

Round eye grill conversion
I think it's time to pull the plug on these guys who think grills are gold. This one even has a chip out of one of the corner lights and is missing the buckets and pig tails. You can be sure this guy is no Isuzu lover. Let him eat it for lunch. Just my opinion.

This is one of the rare grills, it fits the 1981 models. ;) :lol:

I've been searching for one everyday on eBay, it's a bit ridiculous if they're worth half of what I paid for the trooper. We need a good alternative.

I think the alternative is just going to be a little less convenient that ebay. It'll be craigslist part-outs, junkyard/pick n pull searches, etc.

Unreal. I hope he has something happen that results in the deal going south.
