Hey everyone,

I recently purchased a 76' Luv with a known issue, spark plug blown out, previous owner stated he fixed it, well, got home drove it for a week or so and BANG blew the plug again, did the usual repair for issue and it didn't seem to take, took it to a rebuilt shop to see if could be rebuilt, well i was told they recommend purchasing a rebuilt one bc of that issue, so i am wondering what everyone else's opinion is on this......should i just get a rebuilt head or a block? heads are about 300-350$, found a rebuilt engine with a 1 year warranty for 620$.

With all that i was also trying to look around to see what other engines are swapable...can anyone tell me specifically which ones those might be ? I am aware of the Isuzu PUP/Imark/Tropper 81-86, also heard and Impulse engine w a turbo will fit, just not sure which direction to go.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.....

Thanks in advance
Aloha

Here a link to tone of the threads to what motors you can use from the Trooper. I believe the impulse motor has some mods you need done, but I haven't read that thread for awhile.
