Samurai Tech / 1.3L timing swap to 1.6L
Has anyone done this mod? (1.6L timing gear setup on a 1.3L)?

Been curious as to my "squeaky belt sounds" and I believe it is timing related...

All would be fine, correct?

IS the cam gear larger (more teeth)?

I would want to do this before I get the adjustable timing cam gear due to the belt differences (wider and teeth style)

Any info helps sway my decision!

Samurai Tech / Tintop gurus
Afternoon all...

Just curious as to some aesthetic stuff in my tintop...

I would like to eventually pop this oem clock in my dash, I just have yet to make the jump into pulling my dash (Might be overkill, but I want to get back there and tidy up anyway).

Question I have is, does the clock wiring already exist on all samurai wire harnesses?

I tried to look under there, but nothing really stuck out to me.

How about the rear door window defrost connection? (Dash button and rear window connection)

My tt does not have the defrost window, although I would like to have one. (Maybe I am just California dreamin!)  [idea]

Are there any other goodies that already exist in the wire harness (tt or not) that is plug and play?

Was there such option as "factory fog lights"?

When A/C was installed, was the wire harness different or was it modified after the fact?

I also have a rear door Jimny brake light (goes on the inside of the door) and will prob have to run a wire for that light (I would guess this harness wire doesn't exist)

Any insight helps a newb.  [black_s] :o

BBS Help and Site Suggestions / Mention by username?
Hey there, is there a way to say, (i hate to say it), but like on facebook when you type a name, the person is notified you "mentioned" them and they can go to the post??

I can see this being useful when there is a thread that someone knows what they are talking about, and someone comes in later and talks about them and needs more input, but the original user that knows his stuff is unaware the thread was "bumped" and never responds...

Just a thought!  [idea]
Samurai Tech / Springs or Shocks?
Hey fellas, I need the guru advice!  ::)

I have a set of Trail Gear 3" SPUA springs with RR branded shocks (seems like unbranded Rancho shocks?) and I have a very stiff ride.

Now that I have finally started running my rig a little more since smog, I would like to entertain a "softer ride"...

ofc, coils would be ideal, but my pocket-book can not support this idea... [lol]

I am curious as to what you all think, should I try swapping out some generic shocks with the RR ones, or is all this stiffness from the TG springs? (I understand lifted springs cause a hard ride, but jeeze this is stiff!)

Man, every little bump in the road jiggles every loose screw to no end!

Buy jamies OME setup?  [lol]

Any tips help  [black_s]

BBS Help and Site Suggestions / Forum outages
I am just curious as to why the forums keep dropping out and I continually get the "server 500" error messages?

I see the ".com" is registered at godaddy, but is the site ran from there (on their webservers?)

Is it a bandwidth issue?

Just wondering!
General Tech / GM lifters
Not sure if it is ok to post "other" vehicle tech stuff, I thought this was a good place...

One of my other vehicles is a Pontiac Grand Prix and has had "lifter tick" for a few years now...

Well, one if them finally decided to give up the ghost!!

I wasnt 100% sure if it was a lifter or a rod bearing (sounded that nasty!), so i told myself if I tore it down and the lifters were not the issue, it would prob head to the jy...

For whatever reason, machinists have a difficult time rebuilding these 3800s, and most people just swap out the crank case with a "good" jy one...

Well, to my suprise and joy, i tore it down last night to find this, a nice little lifter that has seen a better day..

You can see in the second pic, a nice good flat spot...

The only thing that concerns me now is if the cam lobe is wiped...argh!!

Just thought I would share!

Hope this is in the right spot in the message board!
