engine swap question

Recommended Posts

Can I put a engine from a 95 2wd manual tranny vehicle into my 90 4wd auto vehicle, and if so what mods will be necessary?

 

Thanks

The oil pans are different, that will need to be swapped. I'm not sure of anything else though. :lol:

With the oil pan you will need to swap the oil pickup tube as well.

Remove the pilot bushing and MT flywheel as you won't need it for the auto, swap over the torque converter....

The 2wd has a partial water pump compared to the 4x4, the wider one can be put in with the 4x4 timing covers to seal up the sides of the cover better.

doesn't the automatics have some kind of metal plate between the engine and tranny? that may be different from the manual trans trucks??

yes but he should have that from his old engine, It swaps right over. He already has what he needs and know he knows what he has to swap while both enignes are out.

yep, just like he said. We put a 2wd 1994 engine in my 4wd 1992 pathfinder, those are exactly the parts we moved over. ps dont forget to transfer the oil dip stick, oil pan depth is different.

Basicly it's already all been covered, my last swap was ka engines in a HB but assuming it should be similar. The oil pan/pickup tube/dipstick need swapped, remove all the M/T parts from back of the crank and save the flywheel spacer from your auto truck, you WILL need that (learned the hard way, I DONT want that on a 5 speed truck) and generally remember to order engine parts for a 2wd motor.

When I swapped a FWD auto engine into my 5-speed 4x4, I set each on its own engine stand then just swapped parts until the new one looked like the old one.
