I need a complete engine for my 2013 4x4 w/ 6 speed stick. I also need someone to swap out the engines, asap. Any ideas would be most appreciated.
Oh crap...I knew this was coming. Well, here goes the preface to my costly mistake. Last week, about when the eclipse came, I tore my knee apart in Idaho. The same day that happens I hear that the best student I ever had was killed in an accident. So, I drive my coach with the pickup behind to his services. Pain, more pain and medication. The following morning I forget to check and left the truck in gear when we were heading south from Brothers, Oregon. My 500 hp Detroit pulled it fine until the tires started smoking on the SV. It appears the engine is seized and I don't know yet about the tranny. Can anyone tell me a way to check the tranny for damage (I guess draining it will tell though)? It seems to shift just fine (with engine off :frown.I may have missed it, and if you don't mind me asking, what happened to your motor that requires its replacement Neal?
He is not talking about replacing his motor with a Titan V8.Get on Facebook nealinnevada and look up Brennan Becker. He does all our v8 swaps and a auto to manual. There is alot more than just buying a manual tranny n swapping it out

I believe this to be true also.nealinnevada I am sorry for your loss that really s^ck$ to say the least when it rains it pours damn I'm sorry. "Oh crap...I knew this was coming" well you kinda knew it though with your thread starter I read it earlier something told me there was more I just left it alone but to your questions
1 Yes should only need to change out flywheel 2 yours is pretty much only thing I can see right off
2 I believe any donor with a 4.0L be it Xterra Frontier or our late cousin Suzuki
3 Have no one to suggest sorry
Well said, I thought I was clear ::laugh::! Just found a long-block in Phoenix w/15K miles on it. Will buy it tomorrow...No apparent damage to the tranny. I drained it and no debris.He is not talking about replacing his motor with a Titan V8.
Just replacing his stock motor.
He does not want to buy a manual tranny. He has one.
He wants to know if a VQ 40 that came with an automatic would would work with a 6 speed.
