Jap diesel conversions
Hi, I seem to remember Brit 4x4 mags often have ads in the back proposing Jap TD motors at reasonable prices; I'm looking into replacing the 2.6 petrol in my ZA built 1992 Mazda pickup which hasn't survived EU petrol (it was a guzzly block anyway).
The rest of the vehicle is hard as nails which could make it worthwile (depending of course on the price).
Trouble is I'm not in the UK so I can't get the mags I'm talking about.
How complicated are the legalities of such a conversion in the UK? It's still ZA registered so I'll probably choose which country to 'import' it to as a function of the admin difficulty (Difficult to be worse than France).
Has anyone on the forum had any dealings with Jap TD converters?
