so the motor in my l210 is bad. cam lobes and rockers are worn down to an unusable point and the valves are toast now too. basically entire top end needs to be replaced and judging by how bad that is i’m going to assume the bottom end isn’t far behind.
i’m having trouble sourcing an ef-el (at least i’m pretty sure that’s the motor in my car, 93 l210) so what i’m wondering is, what motors share the same block and head as the ef-el? to the point where i can just bolt the accessories from my motor to a new one to get this car running again.
i don’t have enough attachment to the car to play around with motor swaps from a newer or faster model, i just want to be able to drop something in and plug and play with no wiring.
i did find an ef-hl, which appears to be a carb version of the el? but i want to pick the brains of the experts here before i pull the trigger. i appreciate any input y’all have to give
