Default Need help with Gypsy's engine

Hi all,

I need help from all the tech gurus on the forum. I have a Gypsy King which is an mpfi one. It was once driven without engine oil and the crank got bent and it was continously making typical crank noise. So its lying idle for more than 10 months now.

I also have a carb Esteem which is having lot of issues but the engine is intact and is in very good shape.

My question to you all is, Is it possible that I can swap the block of my Esteem with that of Gypsy ? I know the head is different in both the cars. Is there any other difference also like is there any difference in foundations as well ?

Should be possible. Half engine overhaul is just about what you are proposing. Caution do check if carb esteem and mpfi esteem had any change in the block. Not to my knowledge but just do check.

Default Re: Gypsy King - Carb or MPFi?

Resurrecting this old thread. Someone is selling an old 91 Carb Gypsy. What should I be looking for in these old carb vehicles? What problems should I be looking for? From the posts, seems like it is better to pick a MPFI vs a carb...guys your inputs please.

You won't have a place for the crank sensor if there is one
