  • Engine wanted

    Hi All,

    I'm a long time lurker here and have garnered many useful tidbits from this forum since I found it first.

    Due to my own incompetence I now find myself needing a replacement engine for my much loved 2LTE LN130. What did I do? Well, let's just say that I will never forget to replace the coolant cap before a 30 mile drive ever again.

    So, where do I find a 2.4 or a 2.8 these days? I know they are becoming relatively hard to find. What other models carry the same engines? Previa/Estima, Dyna, Hiace, etc?

    All the ancilliaries (alternator, turbo, pump, etc) are fine so what I need is the block and head - the heavy stuff.

    To make it even more fun, I'm based in Dublin so I'll have to get it shipped if I can't find what I need over here and I'm skint so it'll have to stay parked up for a while until I can afford the bits.

    Thanks for reading!

    Dave.

    P.S.: I really want to put a Lexus 4.0L in it but I know I really really can't afford it

          Are you still looking for an LN-130 engine?

            I am, but I'm still trying to save up for it. I'm driving my 30 year old X1/9 in the meantime, which is great in the current weather but it can't carry much.

              I have (sorned) a '91 LN130 with 116611 kms on the clock - prior to sorn I replaced all the seats with those from a donor vehicle that had been imported (written-off) for spares - the donor vehicle had only done 2,500 kms & was originally imported by a friend for the engine.

              It has Berg split-rims with Kumho Powerguard AT 31x11.50R15 tyres that have only seen 800 miles.

              It has stood for 6 years & needs to go - you can take the entire vehicle for 300 - you will need to arrange for collection but being as I'm in North Wales it's only a ferry trip away.

              I have already scrapped one LN130 this year & it would be a shame to let this particular low mileage example go the same way.

              Back in the day (12 years ago) the UK Hilux Surf Owners forum was moderated & run by myself - I supplied many parts for owners, up & down the country, all at absolutely no profit going to myself.

                    Whereabouts in north Wales (nearest town, etc). I can get a quote to have it collected.

                    I still won't be able to do this for a little while yet though - money's beyond tight.

                      I'm in the heart of Flintshire, around 80 miles from Holyhead - no rush ATM but I'd like really to see it gone - I got a scrap collection/payout for my other LN130 but that had been run into the ground.
