    Default Toyota FJ40 4.2 Petrol

    I have recently got auctioned Toyota FJ40 1982 with original F2 Petrol 4.2.
    I am wondering if swapping with Toyota 14BT worth the pain. What else would change with this swap like tubes, gear box etc. Also, if some one could please guide me where to buy this in Lahore.

    regards,
    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Thanks taimoorkhan, TLCFJ40, wasifali89, Ghuncha and others. Raza is indeed very knowledable in building FJ/BJ40's. We happenned to be class mates too at Lahore St.Anthony's
    let's see if this thread make him change his mind as I will get benefitted too....as he is helping me restoring this jeep. Or we might both stick to F2 Petrol.

    TCLFJ40, purpose is to take it to occasional hunting trip but having a reliable and economical engine is wish list too.

    I know few people here can swear for F2 reliability but then again, the notion of having fuel efficient, more horse power pack, vehicle weight to engine ratios were not that established in 1982. So I am working what possible solutions are out there.

    I would also admit that while I can write research papers on probability and linear programming, I know nothing about engines let alone make wise decision on engines.


    Regards,

    as discussed over the phone you should try and stick to original petrol engine, ure only going to be here 10 days out of a year so how much fuel can u burn in such little time??,

    i have been driving the bj40 with the B2 engine for the last three months and am quite happy with it,

    as for my fj 40, it will be complete by mid nov,im attaching a few more pics of ur army auction fj 40(which were taken at my place) and some of my fj 40(taken yesterday).

    @isiddiqui
    if you change the engine from f2 to B14 then
    1/engine foundations have to be adjusted.
    2/tubes+gear box+front and rear shafts have to be changed

    @ isiddique

    the roll cage in picture can be made by any good denter with the help of an experienced pipe bender(die wala)... the neat work of pipe bending matters most... rest a denter can fix all.. paint will cover most imperfections

    Good luck for the restoration.. i love this Jeep

    Nice Project sir.

    Either U keep it Petrol as the 2F engine is a robust machine.
    Incase U want to go for the diesel, I will sugest a 1HD or a 2H.
    A six cylinder diesel will be economical as compared to the Petrol and as a lot more torque at low RPM. And sounds much better as compared to a four cylinder Diesel especially 13B.
