Hey E-locker, mabe u can help me with my swap in my 84, Nothing is lining up at all, very difficult swap, im very close to scrappin the whole project. The engine mounts are not even close, gotta completely fab up bracket cuz The engine slants way up at an angle, Me and me friend are trying to lower the engine down inbetween the frame several inches & raise the t-case a couple inches, I think the high-steer will hit the oil pan if i do that. How are people gettin by this?
You use the 22r-e frame mounts for the engine, and the 5m-ge motor mounts that mount to the motor. Use the rubber and they work together. Also, if you have a truck, mount the radiator in the bed, will be a lot easier for making room. On
off-road.com in the toyota section, Andrew did a swap in his 86 runner. Big write up. Also Robert (SuperRunner) has an awesome write up on his site yotapower.com And on 4x4wire a guy by the name of xtremetoy of something simular has a really cool 3rd gen. truck with a 7MG-TE. I'll be doing a swap as soon as i have enough money to justify for the swap, Anyone wanna help donate? Good luck,
I did buy the 5m motor mounts and i cut the engine brackets off of the frame and moved them back but the engine now stands tilting upwards tilting the tranny and t-case down. looks like a bad angle. So is everybody just running it like this? To level the engine and tranny parallel i have to move the tranny up 2" and engine down 4"...that's a lotta work
I didn't use the 5M mounts on my 7M-GTE. I cut off the 22RE mounts from the frame and welded them back on about 4 inches back and a inch down. I then modified the 22RE rubber mounts by drilling a new hole in them so that they can be bolted to the brackets on the 7M block.
