Hi i was wondering if anyone can help me id an engine that is currently fitted into a range rover i have been told it may be an early landcruiser engine, it is a 4cyl diesel and has 11411-56020 cast in the block also a large letter B and stamped on the top of the block 0237459.

Any help would be a big help as service and maintenence is impossible as i cannot buy parts Thanks Brian

Hi Brian The B diesel is one of toyotas most well known engines.

The B is the oldest version followed by 2B, 2BII ,3B.

The number stamped on the block sounds like the part number for engine or block.

This engine was used in 70s Landcruisers,Dyna trucks and Coaster buses.

It was also used to power refridgeration units on semi trailers.

I would scour the truck and bus scrappers and see if you can find an identical engine.

I dont see why Toyota UK cant get parts if you tell them the year.

Try that engine number 11411-56020 in their computer.

There is also an enormous amount of aftermarket parts around if you know how to source them.

Nippondenso should be able to supply you with fuel injection components,alternats and starter motor parts.

Any fuel injection shop would recognise your injector pump engine

Here is the best 4 sites for info on toyota.

Before I commit myself to rebuilding and installing this engine could someone confirm that it is going to be a strong reliable unit as changing it afterwards will be a major job.

I am not looking for performance here just reliability.

Thanks Brian

Brian there is definately no weak points on a B motor.

When they get old they crack cyl heads but usually it doesnt affect the engine.

Most australian kids went to school in a B powered bus.

Personally I would have used a 3B for the extra power
