I know to many of you it maybe considered a waste of time. but that being said, I dropped an 7mgte in my mk1 (ma47) 81 supra and had the 5m-4 laying around and wanted to put it to good use. So I dropped the 5m-e into a -79 pickup that was a rust bucket. I'm doring the wiring right now. It went in with stock 5m mounts and brackets, however in a 79-83 truck, it places the engine about 5 to 6" abpve the hoodline with a bad tilt on the tranny. i modified the engine brackets dropping the engine lowe enought to clear the hood and have the oil pan miss the x memeber. I didn, however havew to heat and bend the pitman and adler arms to get the crossbar to clear by 1.5" all in all oit fits great. I found ou the truck underdash wiring was damaged b4 i bought it as is the underhood wiring..so I'm doing a chassis wiring swap from the ma47. I pulled everything from a wrecked ma47 so the wiring will be in better cond and newer than what was in the truck. I will keep you guys posted. next step:
fuel pump and radiator.

Sounds like a cool swap - and a logical one for you, considering what you have on hand... Smile

I dropped the fuel tank on the 79 pickup and was surprised to find that the truck had an electric fuel pump. It is a low pressure pump with a very small body, however I am trying to decide if I should run an inline or in tank pump. on the rest of the truck, I removed the stock underdash harness, the thing was in bad shape. I fed the ma47 supra harness under the dash in the truck. the fan blower motor speed control , brake switch and dash dimmer control both plugged right in. The blower motor wire needs to be extended and it will wire right up. Eveything else was swapped from the mk1 supra. It's all in and plugged up to the underhood wiring, which is in turn is connected to all the sensors and the headlight, and core support harness. Whats left is connecting the wiring to the steering column/ ign switch and the cab wiring to the bead wiring, which should be a sinch.











I know it an't pretty, yet, but the project was supposed to look like a quick rustbucket...

connected the speedocable and dropped fuel tank and remove elect pump and pickup. I dropped the the mk1 supra fuel pickup into the tank and I will going with the 5me pump which will provide enough gasoline for 375 hp..enough even for 2jzgtte or lexus v8. It will work for a 5me with turbo. If flows better than a 7mge pump. WIll be re-installing the tank today.

Next I will measure the driveshaft and see if a mk2 driveshaft I had laying around will work...

the white and green plugs are tailights and fuel pump wires, respectively.
This is the splice point between the supra wiring and the truck wiring, which is a sinch.
You can see the melted harness unde the dash and in the engine compartment...
Here are also pics of the mk1 ma47 electric fuel pump and fuel pump pickup bolted into the truck fuel tank. Toyota moved one of the 8 bolt holes was moved over 1/4 to ensure proper installation on truck. I just left that one bolt out...











the 81 supra fuel suction is 1/2" diam fuel line!
See below the inline fuel fuel pump from the supra.

Its running. I'm getting a custom driveshaft by san diego driveline service. I used the supra clutch line and slave cylinder to switch sides on the truck. used the mk1 supra inline pump and fuel line from the supran and used the 22r lineas the return. I will be dropping on the exhsut tomorrow..I will keep u posted...
