Lol you shoulda just bought a Samurai floor pan and hood cuz thats about all thats left. Kick ass build though makes me miss my 89 Geo Tracker i had.This might be the slowest build ever... but it's picking up again slowly.
Just picked up the transfer case gears, 6.5:1 which will slow down rotation by 187% in low range and 20% in high range. Coupled with the 5.29 gears in the Toyota axle's being used, this thing will be a slug
Yesterday I dropped the t-case and began to pull it apart (more pics to come soon). Now that it's disassembled we have to press out the old gears and press on the new ones, should be easy if I can remember how it all goes back together.
And here is how it sits as of now:
Well, I checked all the wiring and visually it all goes where it's supposed to. Need to check continuity for those lines though. The coil should be getting power (I hear a "click" when switching on accessories). Coil is brand new, but I can't get it to arc by pulling it out of the distributor and turning the motor over. That's really all I've done. Could be the ECU possibly.What have you done as far as diag?
An LS would be nice, but not within my budget at this time. I will see how the tiny 1.3 works with the 6.5:1 T-case gears, as well as the 5.29's in the toyota axles. My friend is swapping an LM7 into his 4runner so I will likely take his existing 2.7L 3RZ motor which should be more than enough power.YOu may not need all of the power, but the LS engines were designed for 100% duty cycle. They are used in planes, boats, and all other kinds of machines.
