A few pictures (so far) of the engine work - eventually I will share wiring info and other details (if anyone is interested?) should anyone else ever need to swap an engine in one of these. The replacement engine is a Harbor freight $750 special 670cc, (lawn mower/industrial type lump) with a few minor upgrades. Should have it back together soon, bolted in. The cold weather slows me down!

Hey Everyone, I’ve created a few other threads and a bit disappointed at the limited responses the forums seem to get. So rather than asking about an engine swap i’d like to share some information with others here in an effort to generate some discussion! So i’ve done much research on engine swaps for my 800cc buggy, and my ideal swap would be a suzuki swift gti engine, however they seem to be rare and very expensive if you can ever locate one. The only ones i’ve seen are going for $3500+ which is completely rediculaous becuase the purpose of an engine swap should be to get an inexpensive engine that parts are available for, the suzuki swift is neither. So in my research, i’m specifically looking for a naturally aspirated lightweight aluminum engine that produces “acceptable” power. Far as I can tell such a thing rarely exists in the US, which is probably why the G13b engines are so redicualously overpriced. What I have found, and present to you is a Mitsubishi Mirage 1.2L It’s an all aluminium, lightweight 3 cylinder NA engine that’s producing 74HP and 74ft lbs torque. Not crazy power numbers I know, BUT for an NA 170lb readily available, AND cheap engine those are not bad in its stock form. Certainly those of you looking to get a little crazier than I can drop a turbo in and up those base numbers. Far as I can tell in my research No one has done this engine swap to date, so I suppose I will have to go fist... I am not quite ready to take on a project of this magnitude but will likely make this my winter/spring project and hope to have it completed by early/late spring next year. I will of course document the install and process once it gets under way. In the meantime please feel free to use this thread to discuss other possible engine swap projects or ideas for such! I love me some buggy action and can’t wait to get this swap underway.

I have acquired an older Kawasaki Mule 2010 with KAF 540C engine. The engine is shot so I have the option to either rebuild or replace. I am thinking a swap to a three cyl diesel out of a Toro mower. Anyone tried this? The only reason I am considering this is because I have the mower which is inoperable. The engine runs great so just wondering if this swap would be feasible?????

I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive. I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation. I have not taken anything apart at this point. Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out. Thanks
