I purchased a 72 240. Pretty complete. P30 with E88 head, manual 4 speed. Engine is missing a few components. Wanting to put a F54, P79, manual 5 speed combo in, for casual cruising. I have donor options, a 1980zx, (engine must have been swapped, I didn't think the F54, P79 came in that year). Car is in good shape, but has an automatic. A 1982zx correct transmission but had a hard front end collision. My question, can I or should I swap the complete drive chain, all the way to the rear end. Should I use my '72 4 speed and the better looking '80zx engine. This is my first z car and not sure what swaps without a lot of modification. I would also like to use the dual SU type carbs.

In my search for donors I found a 1980 10yr anniversary model #561 red. In rough body condition. Another donor option.

I'd run the one from the 82. It has everything you need, and unless there is obvious visual damage to the engine I'm sure it's fine.
