the only other things are compression and timing, and incorrect cam timing can cause low or no compression. Is the timing belt moving, is the camshaft turning? I will bet your trouble is the timing belt.
yes, i believe you could put any engine on your pick-up provided it is the rear wheel type set-up and the engine comes with its own tranny. problem is, if changing the engine mounts, tranny mounts, wiring set-up and exhaust system layout would not be of any problem to you. might as well look for the same mazda engine you have as a replacement to ease installation.
i just bought an 88 that crazy overheated could only drive for 30 mins before had to stop. no leaks anywhere, did a compression check on the cylinders,checked out. no water in oil. took the radiator to a shop theyll do a flow test for free, got mine fixed for like 80 bux but you can buy a new one for 120. the white smoke might be your fuel filter
