mazda b2500 WLT diesel engine

Postby AllTrac » June 6th, 2011, 9:59 am

guys know where I can get a complete head and block for the 2004 B2500 diesel mazda?

I would use back all my other accessories, I just need a low mileage head and block, I think the ford ranger WLT diesel is the same engine.

^ yeah that's Prabhu's.

They have a good range of diesel engines, I saw quite a few nissan diesels and a few 4d56 Mitsu diesels in there.

Not sure if they have the WLT though.
And yeah, the WLT and MZ-DE engines in the Ranger / B2500 are one and the same.

Team Loco "RF Titan" what upgraded engine are you refering to? I am interested in using an Mazda RF (2.0 turbo) in an upcoming project are these prone to bearing failure (maybe after 8 yrs!) or reliable?
On another note when would someone start the official Anti-Southern Sales thread for bringing into Trinidad thousands of Mazda 12v WL-T pick-ups which by my estimate about 80% have failed head before turning 8years! Well that is the kinda sheit the new car dealers love to push down the government and always complaining that 'the foreing used vehicles causing too much traffic and accidents'. Poor people must suffer here boy. Do the maths, 80% for the Mazdas (not Ford) may be conservative!

i will get the correct engine code and post it.
i am not aware of 80% failure in the mazdas pertaining to head problems, but i am aware of the tendency for turbo failures. we have mazdas with wl and they work very well. never had cause to change head. in fact, the last wl engine gave us 12 yrs service.

Team Loco...just saying that before my last project..did some research and spoke to mechanics (who all led me to the TD27!) also spoke to over 16 owners of Mazda pick-ups TBK or NEWER and perhaps 10-12 already changed engines or heads! While perhaps the foreign-used WL-T engines do hold out, there is surely a defect in the engines which came with the Southern Supply Mazdas, obviously some folks get lucky and have no issues and the WL-T is indeed a power-house so folks love it...but high risk of cracked head...my pocket too shallow for that risk

plastic radiator head seperates coupled with the smaller core 2core iirc contributes to head failure..

the wl non turbo engine is more sturdy than the wlt but is priced more in the bamboo

^^ ever tried changing to a larger, aluminum radiator for better cooling?

Most of the guys who I've asked wrt to cracked heads on the wlt had stock radiators and no previous cooling problems, no history of overheating, etc.

Is it easy to convert from manual to automatic on the B2500 WLT? is it just to change geabox to transmission? any bolting issues?
