1982 Toyota Pickup Rebuild

Ive got a couple questions regarding yotas.. im not too familiar with them yet. my dad and i have the chance to pick up a 1982 toyota pickup for free. its sitting on a guys farm property and he wants it gone. its a straight axle of course, everything is stock from what i understand. (havent seen pics yet). he says its got a fucked transmission and somethings wrong with the motor. my questions are:

how easily can i pick up a 20R or 22R motor and transmission(idk what its got)? for how much? wheres the best place to look?

this year has a carb setup as opposed to fuel injection iirc, is it best to keep this or drop in a fuel injected motor? would this screw with smog at all?

im looking to make this a weekend wheeler/beater truck. it wont ever be a dd. if i nab this ill replace the motor and tranny, and then start building up the axles and making a nice little toy to mess around in. any help is appreciated, if i have more questions (im sure more will pop in my head..) ill post em here. thanks fellas!

If you want to stay with the 4cyl series and want the most power and easiest way to do so. go with a carbed 22R-e the only E part is the motor itself all the EFI stuff is deleted and you just run a webber. quite simple and you`ll get way more power than just a 20-22R. (if u want it) my buddy runs one. and its not fresh by any means but it pulls 41" iroks w/ 4.56 gears down the pavement like no tomorrow up hill, flat ground it doesnt care. my brand new built 22r on 37's w/ 5.29 gears wont even pull like that...
just a suggestion, do what you want. but if your gona spend a few hundred bucks on a good re-build. might aswell find a 22RE and get the most bang for your buck. just an opinion.

good luck and post up the progress on the rig

I've got tons of parts if your interested including rebuilt axles, transmission and transfer case. Engine parts and pretty much everything else, including a sandblasted and painted frame.
