Engine swap into Rocky?

Hi everybody. I have a question for the brilliant minds here? I own a 90' Daihatsu Rocky 1.6L. The engine is reaching the end of its days and I'm getting tired of just holding it together.

I was hoping there might be another engine out there that would possibly swap into the transmission on the Rocky. I'm on quite a budget but it might actually be cheaper to throw a whole engine in this thing than try to round up the parts for this thing. Not the easiest vehicle to find parts for let me tell ya.

If anybody has any opinions or ideas please post em' up.

the engine has a lot in common with the old Toyota 1600cc engine which will probably bolt straight in, at least the UK versions did.

Try Outerlimits.com they have a very active Daihatsu forum, and the UK's Difflock.com isn't bad either.

I figured Toyota would be the best to look at. Thanks for the suggestions.

Which Toyota engine is it? I just blew my engine and am looking for new one.
