3T Crankshaft In 2T Block, 3T Or 2T Pistons?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!


I'm thinking about buying 2T engine for my Daihatsu Charmant (KE70 with different body) and put 3T crankshaft to it. Would be easier to just buy 3T - I know - but here in Finland the vehicle inspection has to be done once in a year and it's hard to transfer 4K to 3T leagally.


I tried to find info about 2T with 3T crank conversion, I know that I may need to grind some room to block as rod bolts with older model 2T block will hit sidewalls. I also know that rods are same and pistons are not as 3T pistons have different (Lower or Higher?) pin height.


What I don't know is should I get 3T pistons too or would 2T pistons work with 3T crank? If I do have to get 3T pistons, do I have to modify them to fit 2T head?


If there is something else to take into consideration, please tell me.



Of course there would be 3T-G hybrid conversion if I manage to find 2T-G cheap from Finland... =/


Thank you already!
