C223t swap into b2200?

Postby priviello1 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 3:04 pm

Had plans of swapping my c223t into a trooper, but that fell thru. Pulled the engine out of my 2wd spacecab pup due to a completely rotten frame. Love the little truck and especially the engine, used it as my daily driver for a while. Was wondering of anyone has put one in a mazda 2200. Reason I ask is because one of my employees has about ten of those and I can probably get a decent one for free to put that motor in if possible. Of course anything is possible but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this. Thanks in advance!

I've always thought the '84 (or was it '85 when the body style changed?) Mazda B series was a copycat of the P'up. We do have at lease one member who has done this swap, but I don't recall who it was.
