Hello everyone. I am new to the mini truck scene. I have always liked these trucks just never had the chance to own one, till a while back. I bought a 1972 Datsun 521 truck that one of my friends grandfather bought new. It only has 38000 actual miles on it. But the drawback is the motor was torn into a bunch of pieces and left for years stored in a building. I would like to just buy a used engine and just drop it in and get it running. Does anyone have a decent L16 near Indiana they would be willing to part with?

Thanks but that's a bit far. I think I have all the original motor parts. I'm going to rebuild the original engine.
