I have a 1986 4Runner with solid front axle and planning on doing a 5m swap. I was given a 5m out of a supra along with the intake manifold, fuel rail and injectors, wiring harness but no ecu, distributer, alternator, power steering, oil pan, valve covers, or exhaust manifold. I am looking for some of these missing parts and any information that would help with this swap. Thanks

I would hit the wrecking yards for parts that you need.

Look at the supras there and see what it is your missing. Other than what bolts to the engine, you need coil/igniter/afm. I would also get all the connectors needed to connect the chassis harness to the engine harness, both near the ECU and in the engine bay.

One of the yards close to me usually has a few of these supras there so the parts probably wont run all that much. As soon as i get the money i want to rebuild the 5m but curious about turning it into a 6m. I have read both about the bellhousing fitting and not fitting to the manual transmission. Do you know if it does or not? Also the oil pan. If it fits with the solid axle or if i have to swap pans and pickups. Also how difficult would you rate this swap?

You might need to get a 7M oil pan and oil pump. Not a big deal there.

Yeah, a 6M would be nice. Just find a 7M crank(which are actually 6M) and some rods and pistons.

Bellhousing is only an issue if you are putting in a V6 truck. If you are doing that, I don't reccomend the 5M over the v6.

Dificulty, hmm, that is hard to say. Probably a little easier than v8 swap. Hardest part is the radiator. If you don't have A/c, just mount a pusher fan and it won't be that hard.

Ya i have been researching a 22re N/A build with a hp cam but the numbers still don't really compare with the rebuilt 5m. But ac doesn't really matter to me. I have gone threee years without it so it doesn't bother me. But with the 7m crank and pistons and rods, will they just go right in or will there be machining required to fit? Also with the wiring, other than the main engine harness and afm, mafs, and ignition what else is required in the swap? Is it a complete engine bay harness swap?

yup, crank will drop right in, but of course you need to get the proper numbered bearings from toyota.

Other than that list of stuff, you should be good.

Are the mafs and afm relatively easy to swap over if you have the wiring? And is the 7m bottom end worth the money and time to swap over? What all in the ignition is required to swap over?

Will i need a front middle or rear sump oil pan for the 5mge with the solid front axle or will the stock setup work for this application?
