Hi all, I'm on the hunt for a rear tailshaft for my '01 Hilux, haven't had much luck with wreckers as its the first thing to go when they pick cars up with a forklift. Just wondering if any of the shafts are interchangeable between different models? Mines a kzn165 with a straight, one piece shaft (no centre bearing), I know some of the surfs and LN models have similar looking ones and I've found a few on gum tree etc. Will any of the shafts from other models fit my ute? I've got a dual cab, manual 3.0l diesel kzn... Thanks in advance
Hey guys! welcome to my first post! I am currently in the early stages of a 1kz-te conversion on my 94 dual cab lux as i shagged my 2.8. i have gone and sourced an intercooled 1kz-te out of a 99 Prado for a very reasonable price and an even more reasonable one for the entire car. For the conversion i need (from what i know) - Engine........ - KZN GB - KZN bellhousing - wiring loom to suit - 1 piece tail shaft THIS IS WHERE MY PROBLEM ARISES! The prado i have found would be great value for money if i buy it whole and grab what i need before parting/ scrapping the rest. However this particular prado happens to be an auto.. It got me thinking whether i should just buy the engine and TRY find the rest of what i need OR if an auto conversion using the GB/ tranny out of the prado would be possible? Not the biggest fan of auto but it would make an interesting result. Any opinions or tips? Maybe someone has done this conversion before? Note i will be performing a rebuild on the 1kz due to the 240xxx on the clock. just for good measure.
