2tc (very tired) like on a ventilator tired...

So i'm going to be doing a swap up to the 3-tc here in about a month. I was able to find a website that carries almost any engine imaginable. At first it looked like they source you and engine and pay a finders fee. Come to find out they actually carry the 3tc.

I'm going to be order some parts from BRD racing as well. And install them while the motor sits in the garage.

Basically $600.00 For a complete remanned engine with 3 year warranty, Buuttt.. Minus the alternator and starter. not sure about the dizzy.

My question(s) is/are

1-Are the starters of the 2-tc engine the same as the 3-tc. I have done some forum creeping today and couldn't find much info on the subject?
2-Is the alternator the same between the 2?
3-Same with the dizzy? (if it does not come with one im calling tomorrow to ask what it comes with)

Any help would be much appreciated!

Brian

oh yeah
CANT WAIT FOR THE OLD SCHOOL REUNION THIS SUNDAY!!!!

Not sure if they're the same... I'd imagine they're the same because they're almost identical engines... I'd like to know the answer as well :shock:

Starter bolts to trans so has to match trans not motor. Alternator has to match harness so model year specific. Dizzy will be point or electronic, so need a ignitor for electronic style and resistor with point style. 78 should have a small electronic dizzy.
Short answer is everything will fit from your 2TC to the 3TC.
