    1KD engine, interchangeable between LC & Hilux?

    Located a shop that will change out the engine, however he's not interested in swapping out ancillaries. As above my question is will a 1KD engine from a Hilux, same year as Landcruiser be a one out / in swap? Sorry about the similar user name to Dave_S, no way to change unless an admin can...

    1KD engine, interchangeable between LC & Hilux?

    Thanks Shane, problem I have is finding someone to fit a complete engine never mind overhauling one. All the shops I’ve contacted are too busy or just not interested or maybe not capable of doing some proper spanner twisting.

    1KD engine, interchangeable between LC & Hilux?

    My 2010 LC4 has a cracked & holed piston, Toyota say it’s not repairable, probably true, they have offered an new engine for £14K!!! Looking into replacing the engine with something more affordable, I have found a used 1KD engine from a Hilux, I’m told that it will fit into the LC, is this correct?
