We’ve got an old Nissan pickup that the engine has blown up on. I know it’s 18 years old and only been a matter of time before it went and it’s out lasted most by about 10 years but does anyone know of a complete engine or something that fits? It seems a shame to scrap it

You either need a MK 1 Terrano/Maverick engine with mechanical injector pump or a MK 2 engine but you'd need to change over the ECU and associated wiring for it to work. Or change the MK 2 inj pump to a MK1. The gearbox also needs to be changed to a MK 2 Terrano/Mav version so that the Navara drive shafts will suit. The fan cowling needs changed (or removed) to a Terrano one,as does the front exhaust piece and if using the mechanical inj pump,a cable from the pump to a modified throttle pedal. PS steering pump plumbed straight in and likewise vacuum pump to brake servo. .Slight mod required for the top water hose and I think I used the Terrano engine mounts but may not have been necessary.Don't recall any issues with the starter,alternator or glow plug wiring and just added a wire from the key switch to the pump solenoid. Rev counter won't work,although I figured out a way later on,and the engine malfunction light will be on all the time. Needed to be out for mot...dash out and snipped the led. Sorted.
It is a simple conversion but finding an early engine and a late gearbox may be the problem.
Are you sure the chassis isn't getting a bit thin by now? Perhaps at 18 yrs old it wouldn't be worth it...?

If the chassis and body are still good and the transfer parts were all coming for no more than a couple of hundred,it could go on for years.
Unless it has been meticulously looked after and kept well undersealed and washed,after 18 years,the sills will be suffering as will the rear tub floor,wheel arches,front mudguards under the plastic trim,the body to chassis mounts at the rear and the chassis from the cab back,especially beside the fuel tank.
Been there,changed the engine and box and drove one for 6-7 years,patched and welded and then enough was enough for a 2003 vehicle.

We’ve got a 2003 one only done 80k, been on limited use for years now and it’s kind of died this summer as brake pipes are perishing. We welded a few acres of sheet steel into the chassis about 7 or 8 years ago but as mentioned it’s the tub that goes after, the mountings just disintigrate and bumpers fall off due to rotten fixings!!! Will need a good goings over before lambing to see if it’s worth bothering this year.

@Mur Huwcun
Has your engine had the upgrade kit fitted or have you just been lucky...so far?
Lucky! Dad unfortunately doesn’t believe in upgrades and routine maintenance and servicing but will complain to anyone who will listen if and when things fail…..

Maybe the same black sludge that’s somewhere in the bottom of the sump for god knows how many years has helped keep the conrod together…..
