Would that directly bolt on to my automatic transmission? And what about computer systems? How old are these puppies? Are there any parts available for these engines over here?

Motors would have aprox 60/80k to 100k Kilometers Most Japanese get rid of the vehicle after 5 yrs as safety inspection is very expensive aprox $1500 and up depending on the vehicle must be done every 2 yrs
The 5spd manual trany in the Bighorn in Jpn is a Trooper except they had a diesel one If trany will not match (I am checking) can get trany and motor harness and computer all in one

Hello,
Pardon my tardiness to this thread, but I'm looking to take a 1990 or 1991 trooper (4 wheel disk brakes - all around)... and swap in either a 2.8 or 3.1 diesel.
Has anyone done/completed? I want a manual tranny.... can I use the existing one? It seems that most 3.1's on eBay come with automatics.

How difficult a task is this? I see other people doing this, but with more modern troopers. I'd like to stay with 1990-1991 models.

I have a '86 trooper turbo Diesel (3rd gen)... but would like more power.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Much thanks
Larry

we have found on the site that the MUA manual trans that's bolted to the 2.6L EFI 88/91 gearing wise is 100% the same to the 4JB1-T 2.8L
computer free engine sold in Japan around 88/91 years maybe a few years newer in the Japan market :?:

the difference is the starter location and the front bearing retainer.
so the hole trans is not needed, just the front housing and bearing retainer for people with the MUA and 2.6L

if its GM 2.8L V-6 with GM 4L30-E slush box trans or Isuzu manual trans your going to need the hole trans. the manual trans is more or less the same, but its a different input shaft size...it could be done but not easy.

2.6L with 30/80 aison/Warner auto trans, your best bet is to just get a hole trans.
unless all the parts and peaces can be set over to swap the 30/80 auto box that's with the 2.6L can be sent from over seas....to change to a diesel engine pattern.
the diesel 30/80 i saw had a removable front housing , and i know the gas 30/80 is also removable, so based on that its possible.

Since there's already an active topic about this very subject, maybe you should continue the discussion there, rather than in this 7-year-old topic.
