smatlock issues.

Hi, I am in the process of fitting an EB inline six to a 1984 landcruiser. The motor is in and the wiring is looking like a problem. What is the quickest way around smartlock? the engine I have is from a legitimate source (wreckers) but My auto elec see's smartlock as a problem. Can I fit an aftermarket ecu without spending mega bucks or is there an easy solution. I think the auto elec said something about getting the computer decoded? is this a long oor expensive process? Any thoughts or comments would be greatly apprecaited.
Cheers,
Justin

Re: smatlock issues.

smartlock only came on very late EB's ll ,so it may not have it ,i would think it would be as simple as not wiring the smart lock side of things up ,it wasn't actually the engine with smart lock anyway i don't think ,i hope that helps

Re: smatlock issues.

Thanks guys, I've definately got a later model EB, I guess my research wasn't all that thorough. Where can I get a Smartlock disabler unit from?
Or can I just run a pre smartlock computer on the same loom as a, later, smartlocked engine?
Thanks again, I'm going to go and punch my auto elec in the face now, he's had the car for 4 weeks now claiming this was the only headache.
Cheers,
Justin

Re: smatlock issues.

why not just wire in the smart lock? then you have a great immobiliser.

Re: smatlock issues.

i think not 2 sure but ford sells the disabler yeah a nonsmartlock ecu will work get a eb1 one not ea ,and im sure this would be a much cheaper option than the disabler by far

Re: smatlock issues.

it all depends on what transmission he will be running - from the sounds of it it will be a manual so he'd need to get a manual version. If auto then it would have to be EB2 but pre smartlock which is only an 8 month window he can pick from. Not too difficult tho because remember moast cars were auto anyway.

Re: smatlock issues.

Yep it's a manual I'll try and get a eb series 1 manual computer, if not I guess I'll fork the cash for a disabler. I'd love the smartlock but apparently the auto elec can't do it. I wasn't aware that there was a great difference between the auto and manual computers on an EB.
Cheers,
Justin

Re: smatlock issues.

Actually you should just get an EA or EB1 computer - any version to run it. The auto versions in the earlier cars will run a manual just not eb2 onward.
