Just purchased a couple of MQ wagons cheap, and one of them has a
ford alloyhead xflow fitted.
Patrol was originally a L28 with 4 speed and remote transfer.
I'm wondering about putting this engine into a SWB (currently L28 )
Is the bolt pattern on the front of the swb gearbox the same as the wagon gearbox.?
If they are the same , it should be a fairly quick swap over, but as both vehicles are still in regular use, I didn't want to start pulling things apart till I had all the facts.
I went through the bible and couldn't find any info on this.

Check the engine mounts on the chassis are in the same place
IE they havent been moved to suit the x-flow
The exhaust will be different as well
LWB and SWB are different let alone an engine change
IF ya want a simple weekend engine change , just check a few things like above out

Why? Only the transfer lever is different on L28's. Gearlever is the same, just another top cover.
