Default NJ Pajero engine rebuild

Hi guys,

Long time reader first time poster.

I recently killed my NJ 3.0 litre pajero and need to rebuild the bottom end. Luckily i have another NH so i have time to try and work on fixing up the NJ.

My question is: I live in a remote aboriginal community and there are lots of pajeros laying around so i pretty much have a good range of spares to choose from.

Considering all the spares laying around what would you guys reccomend as the best course of action for a rebuild?

Ive been reading that i can use the heads off a 6g74, the injector rail, crankshaft and the 24 valve. I was also planning to get hardened valve seats and chromed pistons from Darwin before i reinstall.

What do y'all think? Excuse me if ive said something stupid im a rookie mechanic but starting to do alot of repairs/mods on my own because im a tight arsse and i enjoy doing that kind a thing.

You wanted to use the heads off the 3.5 Dohc / crank ? The heads should fit a 3.0 block as they are the same as NA GTO or 3000GT heads. The crank will work as the GTO guys take them and use them to make strokers. I would have the pistons coated but not with chrome. You would be better suited to find a wrecked 3.5 dohc and steal the whole motor and wiring harness if possible.
