Samurai Tech / Re: 1.3L timing swap to 1.6L
I'd be interested to know what the cover is off of.  Do 1.6 covers fit on 1.3 engines? Looks like a neat kit.
I would think the cover is off of the 95-97 metro/swifts that had the 1.3 sohc motors. The ones with the aluminium valve covers everyone likes for there samurais. 
The 1.6 is slightly taller then the 1.3 so I doubt it would. 
Samurai Tech / Re: 1.3L timing swap to 1.6L
the number of teeth on the gears should be the same. I was running a 1.6 upper pulley on my 1.3 after the 1.3 pulley cam loose on me.
Eventually swap in a 1.6 and getting rid of the V belt was the best thing ever. 

Did a similar swap on my 3cyl geo. Upgraded to the newer model wider round toothed timing belt and 4 ribbed pulleys used all the pulleys of off a swift gt motor I had laying around and the T belt from a 96 3cyl. 
Edited the first post added new stuff and removed the sold.
Thanks for the link saved me needing to go dig it up. Checked them both one is good the other is dead. Pulled the good one off should be able to just ship it in a bubble envelope to keep costs down.
Do you have any idea if the throttle position sensors on your parts TB's are functional? I just figured out the one on my donor motor is dead. Please let me know if you'd be up for shipping one down to Oregon!
I can pull them off and inspect them. Need to find the spec for them so I can test them out. 
I'm in search of a stock Samurai front bumper. I have the lights already, I need the bumper and the end caps.

I know they're crappy but I like the stock look.
None here. any I have come across are mangled and rusty 
mmmmmm parts ;D
what is the known condition on those sidekick steering wheel combo switches? i need a working one [idea]
my wipers broke constant on, so i put a switch inline to just turn them OFF [approve]
They all worked when pulled. If they didn't work they would have gone to scrap with the rest of the truck. 
Still got the unknown Holley Carb? ;D
I'll go $20 on it.
Ship to 27522?
Thanks!    Doug  [thumbsup]

How-To / Re: Samurai 2.0 swap
My motivation is simple. I love my Samurai. Out of all the cars I've owned, it's the most entertaining to drive. I don't know how to explain it other than it feels like a real old school machine. There is no numbness like more modern cars have. You can feel everything it is doing while in operation. The steering, the clutch, the tires, the wind, the vroom vroom of the engine and with my old GTi engine, the intake noise was awesome. I've owned it for almost 11 years, 9 of those with the GTi and this is the longest it has ever been inoperable. Every time I get in my car to drive to work, I look at it sitting in the garage next to my car looking all dusty and incomplete. It makes me sad.
I know the feeling Iv had my samurai for almost as long and could never get rid of it but now its has been sitting for nearly 5years while getting extensive body work and a new motor.
Where im stuck with the j20 swap is I want to run the tracker rad it fits between the frame rails but only if the steering box is out of the way. I picked up a toyota box that mounts to the outside of the frame but havent found what it is going to take to get that going.
What are you planning for a radiator? 
Samurai Tech / Re: Installing gauges in vent holes

Used some 2inch gauges, just popped the vanes out of the vents and filed the pivot pins down until the gauge fit snug. 
How-To / Re: Samurai 2.0 swap
I swapped a 2.3L into my Samurai.  only needed to modify the PCV metal tube and the accelerator cable mount.  my hood closes now with no problems...using the 2.3 intake.
What mounts are you using? 
Im am planning to swap a J18 into my samurai and am looking for mounts that wont require a body lift to get the hood to close 
Pix and Vids / Re: Its off road, or off "the" road :(
heres hoping its just the T case 
Samurai Tech / Re: Anybody using these headlights?
I would rather pay extra money for the complete led housing retrofit to have the piece of mind that there are street legal and wont be blinding everyone else on the road. 
Those h4 conversions dont emit light the same way as a halogen h4 bulb which is why in the first link if you look at the picture against the wall the halogen has a nice sharp cutoff and the led is throwing light up past that area same with the picture on life time led website the led light just looks like an big blob of light. 
If you run your Zuk on the roads keep the stock headlights or get a good DOT legal led or hid setup. If you just run it on trails anything goes.
Samurai Tech / Re: My new center console

If you don't mind opening up the hood occasionally then a lock box just under the hood just in front of the firewall on the drivers side would be a pretty secure spot.

I had one there, it was great for keeping small spare parts in and some tools. But now its going to become the air box for my snorkel.

Iv been wondering if one of those boxes would fit. would be nice having some sort of arm rest.
Samurai Tech / Re: GEO motor Swap
that doesn't look like a suzuki motor to me.
starting to think it may be a vacuum leak some where. I picked up an injector test light and plugged it in. when i fired up the truck and ran it on starter fluid the injector continued to fire even after i stopped cranking over the motor.
