New Guy from Ontario

Hey,

Been doing the Ford/Mazda thing since pretty much 2000.

Well...my newest project is a '00 Mazda B3000 with a toasted engine.

The engine was hydrolocked and "something" bent. Engine is seized. Neither Cranking by the starter or by Hand will get the thing to budge.

Anyways...my search for a new engine has been running into a few snags.

EVERY single yard I talk to says that this engine was a "one year only" engine.
A 2001 will not swap in it's place?!?

What changed on these engines that makes all the wreckers say it's not possible (I call BS...the 3.0l engine has been around forever).

Any help would be great.

thanks
-Drew

Yeah. I talk with Brian all the time. They have a 2001 engine over there in a Mazda B that has been partially stripped.

...But again. it comes down to that point.

What Changed in 2001 from 2000 that is SO different that the engines are said to not be swappable.
