fj60-62 with a 6.2 diesel!????

I have this 6.2 diesel sittin in my garage that I'm trying to find an application for. The wifey wants a four door suv, so I thought well they make kits to swap in a 350 with a 700r4 so why not just do the 6.2 instead??

from the research I've done there is a bellhousing adapter that goes to the factory auto in the fj62. Would this slushbox be able to handle the tourqe?? "maybe with a different converter"??

If it would be better to go with a 700r4 would there be a better year or model to do this swap?? "read the wife likes the one with the round headlights 60series"

Would this diesel block be too much weight??

Roger in TN did a 6.2 swap in his 40. Shoot him a PM over on mud. He goes by DSLTOY over there.

Over in ih8mud.com Gumby did one on these swaps in a 60. He didn't like it much at all.

I think the 6.2 is well suited for the 60/62.
Here's my conversion;

I personally don't care for auto trannys behind diesels. Do a search for "Marks Adapters". you might come up with ideas. People converting to Toyota diesels from gas here in the US have ordered rebuilt A442's from Austrailia and have said they are better suited to the torque curve and work better than gas version A440's. Seems costly though.
Not everyone with a 700R4 behind a diesel is pleased. There were some durability problems with 700R4's behind diesels until about 1990 or 1991.
The 6.2 only weighs 40 more lbs than the Toy 6 cyl. You get extra weight up front with the extra battery and if you use the older A/C compressor.
