Hello fellow Hi-Lux owners. I am new to the scene and have "shot myself in the foot" in regards to my recent purchase. Need some advice(a lot) and help in regards to several issues I am currently having trying to get my car on the road. The bloke that I bought her from has put a VN 3.8 in the engine bay and from what I can see did most of the conversion properly. problem is i'm guessing at about the 98% mark he has gotten frustrated and done some stuff that is a bit of a dogs breakfast. Largest problem I am having is the clearance between the exhaust and the slave cylinder is about 5-10 mm (not enough) to make it fit it appears he has taken a "sipro saw" to the bleed point... First question(not the last) is has anyone done this conversion before or come accross this problem before and what did you/they do to fix it? I am thinking I could mount some extractors to the 3.8 and re-do the exhaust back from that??(exhaust needs doing anyway... I can post pics if necessary but more interested if someone has done this conversion before :) Thank you in advance Newbie Hilux owner
