To anyone interested in the above thread:

My motivation for asking about the diesel parts was that I'm looking for a
longer stroke crank to fit in the 5 cylinder 4000 engine. I assumed that (or
was asking) if the diesel 5000 had a longer stroke. Todd Candey mailed me
privately saying that a good way to go is transplant a 5ktq engine with the
crank from a '96 eurovan (not imported to US?) resulting in a 2.51 engine.
Sounds good to me, but I have reservations about fitting an old turbo and
still have the following questions:

1) Does the 5000 diesel crank have a longer stroke than the stock 4000?
2) Has anyone bored a 4000 engine and if so, to what specs/what pistons and
rods were fitted?

Overall, I'm looking to play with a couple of 4000 blocks we have lying
around and want to know what's worked and what hasn't. The goal here is
quicker bottom end (I have not yet had the throttle body modified); lots of
twisting mountain/country roads where I live and not much opportunity/desire
to break a ton.
