L300 Automatic and Manual = same engine?

Maybe a foolish question but is there any reason swapping an engine from a manual transmission l300 into an automatic would be problematic? Or would work great?

Gas in Diesel. Endgame.

Just had it towed to a safe zone, I haven't brought myself to give up in it just yet. Is it certainly a damaged piston? Any other theoritical cause for zero compression post gas in diesel?

Gas in Diesel. Endgame.

Shop did a compression test as one cylinder isn't firing, has zero pressure. The verdict is it needs a new engine. The entire interior has been camperised, redone w/wood has a custom miniature woodstove. Any thoughts on selling as is? Would hate to see her off the road but I don't have the time/know...

Was feeling pretty good about my first attempt at mechanics until I just took her on another trip. I was suspecting it w...

Re: Rad Needed L300 Automatic

Excellent, thanks folks. I've made an attempt at finding used parts from wreckers but suprise, suprise, no luck. Some local folks tipped us off that a place in castlegar repairs broken radiators. Has anyone had luck with fixing em? It seems I'm going to have to bite the bullet and order it, but I'm ...
