Question about 1988 Mazda B2200

2 Answers

B2000 to b2200 engine swap.

My 90 B2000s engine finally died last week. Ive got a replacement engine from a 94 Ford Courier which is basically identical. Ive just got the engine in and it bolted up without much of a fuss, but when i was hooking up the fuel lines i noticed that my old engine had a mechanical pump on the back of the head and the one i just dropped in hasn't. What i'm wanting to know is what/where does the fuel pump relay get its signal from (from what i've read is oil pressure? or a rev sensitive switch) and how would i go about wiring a properly functioning fuel pump that switches on and off as needed, and what the relay gets its signal from??

Just put a simple inline fuel pump from a parts store and run a power wire thats hot in run position, and your vehicle will be fine it wont flood because your carb a has a needle valve that shuts fuel off when it fills the bowl

    run an electric fuel pump on it...they are about 40 and you can wire it in to where it comes on only when the key is in the on position. ive had to do that to three different vehicles now and it always worked for me. any auto parts store sells them they are just called electric fuel pumps.not in the tank they go under the body in the line

  • Ronnie Houston Jan 11, 2009

    mine didnt they ran fine..when my fuel pumps die and if it carb i put on the electric pumps and they arent calibrated but they dont cause flooding either. it will work for you.give it a shot youll see what im saying.

What year model S10 2.7 liter V6 would fit a 1988 Mazda b2200. Or what would be the best V6 to put in with the lest trouble

From what I understand, the Ford Courier/Ranger uses Mazda engines. You need to find one of those for your refit. The Chevy uses an Isuzu engine. You will have trouble mating the transmissions and mountings otherwise.

Will a 1990 ford ranger engine fit 1990 Mazda B 2200 truck without any modifications?

No it will not. Only a comparable engine from another mazda b2200 truck and I think the b2000 and possibly Miata, 2.2 engines were about the same from 1986-1993. You can pretty much count out just dropping in a motor from a different manufacturer for any make. Fords don't fit chevys, etc. etc., This would require you modify the entire drive train and quite possibly the electrical system, cooling system,etc. Definitely not worth the hassle involved.

I got a 94 ford laser not starting (not flat bat)

At a time when it will not start, try hitting somewhere deep in the engine/transmission with a tool like a hammer..
or, if you can find where your starter motor is, tap there with the hammer.
The starter solenoid gets stuck and needs to be rebuilt/replaced.
