This a rare opportunity to acquire a drivetrain to repower a smaller pickup, jeep, suv etc with a somewhat unique and desirable turbocharged 2.3 L diesel. These motors were OEM in 1980's Ford Rangers, Mitsubishi Mighty Max's, and Dodge D50's. I've driven vehicles with these engines over the past 35 years and have had good experiences with reliability and especially fuel efficiency. The motors are actually quite dependable if cared for and the Bosch VE pumps are highly tunable using the same tricks owners of older 4BT's and 6BT's use to get better performance.

What I have are two engines and one 4x4m 5 speed transmission. Everything to repower your ride with a dependable, light weight (compared to a 4BT) turbo diesel.

Engine #1: Rebuilt, ready to go, low mileage 4D55. This engine has less than 5k miles on the rebuild. Has a NOS head, upgraded roller rocker valve train, brand new turbo, new starter, rebuilt alternator. This motor is setup to run on the stand with a radiator and can be viewed running at your convenience. This motor includes radiator, fan, alternator, flywheel, clutch, motor mounts, basically everything you need to drop it into your vehicle. This motor is offered for $3k.

Engine #2: Solid core that has great potential. Details on the internal condition can be given if interested. I've disassembled this engine all the way to assess condition and have photo's to share. All parts included are serviceable or repairable with the exception that the head is missing valves and springs. New cylinder sleeves, gaskets, etc, are included in the purchase. Included are the starter and flywheel. This motor is offered for $1k.

Transmission is a Mitsubishi KM145 5 speed with 2 speed transfer case. This tranny has roughly 25k on a rebuild. This tranny/transfer case is offered for $750.

Engine #1 and the tranny were in the D50 pickup shown in the photos. I was hanging on to these motors and tranny to put into a Wrangler, however I'm all tied up restomoding a 56' F600 currently.

If you take the entire collection, then the lump sump price is $4000. Good luck finding a comparable, running diesel powertrain, ready to drop in for anything close to this price.

Call or text if interested. Emails responses are not monitored very well. III I IX five for won O486
