Toyota Land Cruiser Swap

A friend has a '73 Land Cruiser with a bad engine...they were infamous that way.

Anyway, he's thinking of swapping over to an SBC.

Anyone done this and can recommend sources for adapters? He wants to maintain the original trans.

I read some where that the Toyota Land Cruisers had a 6 cylinder GM based engine and that they had a SBC bell housing pattern. Could that be true ??

Performed a swap with a Landcruiser years ago, about '75. TransDapt had all the mounts and bellhousing adapters (std shift). The parts were well made and worked very well - no recut and reweld, etc. As I recall, we needed to use a bellcrank for the trottle linkage, but we used a camed-up 283 with a Smokeyram/Edelbrock manifold. The truck ran well, used it in ice races on the lake during the winter. D

cruiser swap

You can get all you need from Downey off-road in Downey. also trans-dapt as the previous person wrote. there is also specter off road but these folks are expensive and arrogant. and any number of TLC clubs on the web.
I have a 65 FJ40 and a 90 fj65 i cant get enough of them. they are both my favorite vehicles.
sorry I forgot to add that these places are in southern California. both are on the web.
and yes its true that the 6 cyl is based on GM thats part of why they are a favorite to drop a chevy in hence the name chevota
