Ok, so i'm looking at an 87 b2600 for my husband but I noticed there are hardly any at all on here. Actually two. What is the difference between the two and why aren't people building them? Just not many made. Thought you guys might be able to help.

Edited: 1/26/2006 10:04:34 AM by KAOSS motor size and i think the 2600 has a different tranny,but i'm not sure though. b2000-2.0L, B2200-2.2L, B2600-2.6L. There are specific diffrences in how the 2.2 and 2.6 are set up with regards to the intake and exhaust.

the 87-88 b2600 was the same outwardly as the B2000/B2200, the main difference being the 2.6l 4 cyl from Mitsubishi. The frame is slightly different for the motor mounts and passenger side exhaust. Unfortunately they still use the same Nikki carb so the best upgrade for for performance is still a Weber 32/36 progressive, which will also get rid of that oily octopus on the drivers fender and the "canister vac" air cleaner. The 2.6 is both more powerful and more reliable than the 2.0/2.2 Mazda engine, and even more so than the later 89-93 B2600i which used a head cracking Mazda 2.6l engine. Good find, they are still good trucks, as long as it runs well without smoke you will have a Mazda truck that will keep up with traffic. They didnt make many in the 2 years they were available, and the higher cost means they frequently had more options, like trailer mirrors and two tone paint..

well there is a LOT of b-series mazdas on here. Now the b2600 is a dit different that a b200 or b2600. Normaly b2600 is a 4x4 with a 2.6 four cylinder engine and different powertrain all toghether including rear-end diameter and gears. They are very popular for their body lines. the hood has a pretty hump on it, the fenders are wider than regular. There might be a few things that I am missing. I am sure some one will point them out. If your husband is a member here more than likely he's going to want to lower it. If so a 4x4 is not the best option. I can be wrong but I don't think they make 2-wheel drive b-2600. If I am wrong someone please advice.

I have never seen a B2600 4x4 ext cab though. Doesnt mean there wasnt one, just that I havent seen one. And the bubble hoods only came on the 89-93 B2600i with the fuel injected motor. Never on the B2600. Didnt need it, the B2600 didnt have the intake going over the top of the engine.

They made them all, short bed, long bed, ext cab, 4x4 ext cab, 4x4 short bed, 4x4 long bed, all were made. If there was one that WASNT made as a B2600i, it would be the std cab long bed 4x4, that was only available with the mitsu motor.

to clarify that a little better, all the 4x4 fenders are the same, and all the 2wd drive fenders are the same, but the two are different

So I went and checked it out and it is an 87 and the body it has a few very small dings but nothing major. It has original paint, 2wd, runs good, dash is in great shape, 110,000 miles, new head, low compression pistons, rod bearing, timing chain, tensioners, and guide, plug, plug wires, and distributor cap, improved fuel pump and filter, water pump, radiator flushed, heater control valve, transmission shift valve, exhaust system, thermostat, and tires. It does have a crack in the windshield so I talked him down to $1600. Also the body has not an ounce of rust. Is this a good buy or should I look elsewhere?

I actually learned something today.

All the body parts should be interchangeable. Only mechanical or motor parts would be model specific. Suspension parts should be the sam, or very similar and possibly adaptable.

The difference is in the drivetrain, although the rearends will interchange.
