Title: 22R swap
Post by: rednecktoyota on January 15, 2007, 07:31:30 AM
Will the 22R out of an 83 Toyota truck fit in an 86 toyota truck. Both 22R, both carburated. All help appreciated. Thanks.

Yes - the 22R engines from 1981-1996 can all be possible candidates for a swap -depending on what you need, you can even source them from a Toyota Celica or 4runner truck.  Usually better to keep the same model year, if possible - since this will allow you to retain most of the wiring and pollution control equipment.  Keep in mind that in most areas that do smog checking - an older motor in a new car is considered an illegal swap and you will automatically fail emissions and/or safety/registration.  Of cource that only applies to a complete engine swap - if you are after the short block, that is a different matter.
