Default Magna engine swap into Pajero

Hey lads, I'm considering swapping a magna engine into my Nh Paj. Have read most of the posts regarding this, but wondering if the Harmonic Balancer off the magna works with the Paj, as mine has been chewed out by a broken key. It also chewed into the crankshaft. Any ideas from those that have done the job? Thanks

I put a magna 6g72 engine into my NJ paj abt 3-4 yrs. Massive job.......you can only use the bare block & heads........thats it.......nothin else.......strip both engines completly & change everything over from ur old paj engine to the magna engine.

The rocker covers, sump, oil pick up, water pump etc will not fit, from the magna 6g72 engine......u gotta strip the magna 6g72 engine totally, & put all the parts from ur paj engine on it. A gasket kit is necessary.

Cheers
Stuart

You'd really be pissed off if you did all that work then to find you needed to replace head-gasket/s!

Cheers lads. All info is greatly appreciated. It sounds like a reco paj, although more exp, would be the easier option. I can do the work myself, but time might be the trouble. The wife doesn't really enjoy driving my old Rangey.

I took the easy option. Got a secondhand one. Done about 170,000 kms. Figure I should get at least another 1-150 thou out of it. I'll be praying so anyhow. Should be here next week.
