Now tell us how you got a EA71 into a justy, or do you really have a hatchback, or do you really have a justy and are mistaking the 3 cylinder engine for a EA71?

electrically wise it looks to hook up the same ,if im looking at the crappy haynes manual right the one i have to put in. looks like a hitachi disty, what kinda modification otherwise would have to be done to make it fit?

It looks like your neighbor has an Gen2 Body style hatchback, the description of the upper hose is dead on for Gen1 and Gen2. Here's a link to the 87 sale brochures, there are pictures of both justys and hatchback.
i could tell it really didnt belong though since among other things the upper rad hose was about 2 feet long and curved back into the thermostat housing.

hatchbacks were still made in '87 - and an EA82 motor/tranny would be a good upgrade for it
engine sideways - justy
engine in strait - hatchback

do you have to pull apart the disty to replace that?
the one he has looks like the white one in the front
im curious did they have both styles in 87??
ok then lets make sure im looking at the right thing here it doesnt seem to be getting spark to it, the coil is newer and just to make sure that wasnt faulty he tried a working one for sure and tat didnt help, also has a newer cap and rotor on it. basically he said when it died it was staying running but a little rough and as soon as he had shut it off it wouldnt start back up again
i would agree with the ea82 swap but 1 he doesnt have a clue on doing it and 2 after he fixes it he is selling it anyways he has it for sale now for 350 obo but since soobs arent popular down here nobody wants to buy one that isnt running.
