Engine swap (aŕ to truck)

I have a early model 1985 4x4 truck with a 22RE & 5 spd manual trans. I am replacing the motor with one that I bought. The motor that I purchased (is complete) is a 22RE out of a 1985 Celica GTS that had a automatic trans. I did NOT get the ECU unit with the motor. Besides extending some wires so they will reach and flywheel, will this swap be able to work w it th my ECU etc. ? Thanks for your help.

I'm not sure I understand your question. You're swapping an '85 22RE for an '85 22RE? And keeping your 5 speed manual transmission?
It doesn't sound like anything is changing. I don't even understand extending the wires.

It's possible a few peripheral parts might be a little different. A visual inspection would be the place to start. Where there are differences, you can just swap over the pieces from your old engine.

It sounds straightforward to me?? About the only thing, I can think of is that maybe the input for the neutral safety switch is not there??? If it's not you could short the NS with a jumper to by pass it. Then your ECU won't care. But I don't know if that is even gonna be an issue.

Yes, that's exactly along the lines that I was thinking, something like the neutral safety switch, being that the engine came out of a car with an automatic transmission. Just to clarify, I did not get the ECU unit with the engine that I'm installing from the Celica. I'll be using my original ECU that's already in the truck set up for my manual transmission.

The neutral safety switch is the only thing I can think of that "might" be an "issue??" If it goes out, it presents a lot like a dead battery! I've only had one go out on me in my "mini truck." I think i even bought a new battery at the time?? That didn't help. Finally I jumper-ed the neutral safety switch and it fired right up!

Maybe it'd be a good idea to just jumper the NSS, right out the gate??

Welcome to the forums!

I'm gonna take long shot here but I'm gonna guess that the auto trans engine crankshaft will not have a spot fer the pilot bearing that yer gonna need fer yer manual transmission.
