so in the end, was it a 3.6 or 3.4 V6?
I just bought a 94 hilux, 4x4,
and had it completely rebuilt,
every part that was rotten, worn, or looked or smelled funny was replaced
and the nice thing was that it was all bloody cheap
all japanese spares, the labor
and I've found a new independent mechanic who actually answers his phone, shows up on time, and makes print outs of what he's done
when he delivers it to your house
360k km and not counting
regarding spares for grey market or non Chilean versions,
I once bought spares for my ex 4runner, and they came straight from the USA, via a brokering company that specializes in direct import of spares for 4x4s,
about 5 days from my order to the parts in my mechanics hands.
