3tc and power steering. Please
After Fridays ride I barely made it home. 39 years of pulling wrenches has took its toll on my shoulder and friday I was in so much pain by time i got home I will have to do something before I go out again. 
 I have been procrastinating this change for years but now its purty much do it or get out of the zuk forever.
   In the Zuk at present is a 2tc 1600 toyota motor and trans. No provision on this engine for the power steering pump or brackets. The bolt holes arent there. 
 What i have to go in is a 3tc 1800 with power steering pump already on it. The wagon I took it out of had power steering air n all. Engine only has about a 100,000 miles which is low miles for these motors.

The engine has been sitting for a number of years and #4 cylinder has little pitting cause of a thief that stole the radiator and left the hood up.

The exhaust valves were also pitted. Intake valves and seats were good. Got 4 new exhaust valves on the shelf

Always thought a Toyota K series or T series engine in a Suzuki would be a fun swap.

Shaving the head messes with valve adjustment

Looking good Mark!  Mighty purdy!  How much shave did the head get?
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.
