Chev V8 diesel - LandCruiser petrol 3F auto
Toyota LandCruiser engine conversion using the Chev V8 diesel engine - 168T flywheel
- 4.0L 3F 4-speed auto
Chev V8 Diesel with a 168T flywheel to FJ60, FJ62 & FJ80 4 Speed Auto Kit part no. MFK560CD/A utilises the GM flywheel, Toyota flex plate and torque converter. Instead of a new bell housing, a flywheel housing is supplied which measures 122 mm/4.8" long. This housing has the GM bolt pattern on the front and the Toyota 1F, 2F, and 3F, bolt pattern on the rear.
The kit has been designed to allow for firewall clearance without shifting the transmission or altering the drive shaft lengths.
The transmission torque converter is coupled to the flywheel via a crankshaft adaptor. The adaptor has the Toyota crankshaft bolt pattern and spigot diameter on the transmission end with the GM crankshaft bolt pattern and spigot diameter on the engine end. This allows the Toyota flex plate and torque converter to be bolted to the rear as with the old 3F engine. On the rear of the engine a manual flywheel is used instead of a flex plate, as there is no provision to support a flex plate when the starter motor is engaged.
NOTE: Using this kit gives more firewall clearance but reduces fan to radiator clearance for this reason we recommend using engines fitted with a single serpentine fan belt and reverse driven water pump.Kit contains:
- Adaptor flywheel housing
- Crankshaft adaptor boss
- Adaptor cover plate
- Oil pressure sender adaptor
- Water temp sender adaptor
