How to convert 3sfe from distributor to coil packs for Toyota (its possible!)


I accidentally blew up my mum’s car when passing a truck on a passing lane the car was a 1997 Toyota ipsum with a 3sfe engine the engine gave no warning as i gunned it pass a truck and it spat a rod out the block with two big holes on each side of the block on investigation the con rod had separated  from the piston i was lucky i had spare oil in the car as i drove it and extra 5 miles just topping it up with oil to get to my destination.I got a tow company to dropped it back to my house the next day .A decision was made to purchase a new engine for the car i opened the hood and i looked at the engine and i noticed it had a distributor on it so i ordered a second hand replacement engine from the wreckers for $400 nzd. I picked up the engine and got it back to home . The next day i opened up the bonnet and discovered my eyes had tricked me and the engine had coil packs on it . I searched the web to see if it was possible to convert a 3sfe with a distributor and change it over to coils packs but could not find much info on it so i have decided to show you how i did the conversion .



I needed to remove the oil pump housing and swap them over the cam shaft pulley just slides off and you will need to swap that pulley cog. The crank angle sensor is not on the engine with the distributor.


The parts that are different.
I have made a diagram of the differences in the parts. the only way i found to remove the crank angle sensor was to slide off the cam shaft drive pulley i also swapped the oil pump from the engine from replacement engine to the housing that required the crank angle sensor .
dissy removed from replacement engine
I had to remove the distributor from the replacement engine . It was held in place by the cap and the end of the distributor just fitted in the back of the cam shaft.
The distributor
The removed Distributor.
This was were distributor  went on the engine that had coils this had to be installed were the distributor came out of for the replacement engine i made sure i put heaps a sealant on it .
Sealant applied to the sealing cap                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   SETTING UP THE CAM TIMING


step 1( Do not force crank shaft around to prevent bent valves ) The blue arrow is a marking on the oil pump housing . Between the 2 red arrows is a tiny line stamped on the cam shaft drive sprocket on crank you must line these up and position the cam shaft sprocket on cylinder head in next photo


STEP 2 This is the cylinder head cam sprocket all you have to do here is look at the top of the sprocket and you will see a small hole and there is a line behind. line it up and line up step 1 together put the cam belt on .The direction  of engine is in photo below and the timing will be set do 2 revolutions to make sure nothing is hitting as far as i no this is a non interference engine but be safe in this step.
Engine direction. Top cam shaft sprocket turning clockwise.
The cam belt should be assembled in this order.
There is a stud and it needs to be removed from old engine over to replacement engine it holds the coil pack to the cylinder head.

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
(and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate
any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
