Default A newbie querie ..... 86 trooper drive shaft

Hi everyone. Am a newbie here. I just got myself a forgotten, god forsaken, “thrown to the dustbin of history” 3-door 1986 first generation trooper II with long wheelbase. Its not running now and its a major project for me to get it back on the road.
It had a gasoline engine when brand new but for some reason at some time in the past, the owner took it off and installed an old school isuzu C240 in it. For the past 5 years its been sitting in his garage and when i towed it to my place, i found out the front drive shaft to the front differential was missing, meaning i cant have a 4x4 function without it.

My question: is the drive train for all gen1 troopers the same even if their engines differ, be it gasoline or diesel ?? I intend to drop in a factory correct C223 (turbo) or a 4JB1-T..... so.... will the front drive shaft be the same even if the engines are interchanged .... gasoline to diesel ??

I honestly don't know. But I can see if there's anything in Haynes or my other resources about it, if you'll let me know if you find a place to locate parts for this beast...
