No, there are at least 5 different and not interchangeable 4.3 GM motors. you will most likely need the same -year- and an industrial or marine engine, make sure you save the crank case pan from the old motor.

Was going to order the GM4.3LLT from TVH, I have sent in a few requests asking if this is right motor and have not gotten reply back.
It says will fit 1997-2004 & 2008
I have no idea what year this lift is by the sn; #

If you have to have brand new GM engine get a hold of the guys at Power Solutions International. They are very knowledgeable when it comes to the GM engines. Their website is wwwdotpsienginesdotcom replace the dot in the web address with a actual period.

i'm sure because of the age of this truck hyster will have to be contacted directly to get the right information to get you the correct motor. The online database does not cover trucks this old via serial number entry.
I wouldn't trust TVH on this one either.
go direct to the source for your best results.

You've been swooped!

talked with parts guy at hyster "S$S" he gave me part # 3182721R
I ran that thru TVH cost was $118,594.14 shows it to be R&R engine and no cross-reference to other numbers. R stands for year of manufacture does that mean it has a 1994 engine thats million dollar question

the engine is rather old, there may be a chance the id tag is still on the block. If not then there should be some numbers stamped in it somewhere. IF there is a tag though it should have the year of mfg on it.

did you tell the guy you just wanted a motor and not a whole lift? ;o)
sheesh thats high for a motor

Looking that up on TVH X-part and it shows a part # 1369493 for a 1994 model which crosses to that LLT motor you mentioned. The 1995 motor (1377796) also crosses to the LLT but the 1993 does not. What's wrong with fixing the motor that's in it?

yep i'm sure a rebuild of THAT motor would be cheaper than 118k by a longshot ;o)

I always give a choice when pricing an engine- rebuilding theirs & an exhange unit. I advise them of the pros/cons of each choice & let them tell me which way to go.

I do prefer rebuilding theirs when possible. I know who's rebuilding it & there will be no installations issues.

Did you make the customer aware that the rebuilt engine may not fit other equipment?

No disrespect- just doesn't seem to make sense to rebuild an engine to keep in stock for equipment it might not fit.

sure the bare block would fit in most machines that house a Vortec V6 block, it's the options and accessories that make the difference.
