How to check for a jumped timing chain or belt
This video can be used to support Section 1 pages 17-23 in my ebook.
The method of timing verification shown in this video can be used on any
car. Even on old school, non-computer controlled systems. I am also showing
in this video how to properly align the timing chains on a 2003 Suzuki
Geo/Suzuki 1.3L Engine - Hovercraft conversion
This is the engine that I removed from a 1999 Suzuki Swift with 113,000
miles. Rated at 75-79 hp at 5400 rpm. Overall, the engine was in great
shape, and just needed some new gaskets, timing belt, and water pump. The
engine is exceptionally quiet and well balanced. All extraneous wires have
been removed from the harness, which I'll tidy up once I get the instrument
cluster wired. The cogged belt reduction drive is not engaged in this
video, but is about a 2:1 reduction. The engine will swing a 60" wooden
prop. Further details and pictures under the 'Rip Tide Cruiser' section at
G16A Sierra - first startup
This is a carby G16A/G13BA hybrid (Vitara/Baleno G16 bottom end with the
G13BA head). This is the first time I started her. Was a little unsure
whether the dizzy was out by a tooth which is why I was rotating it to feel
for a smoother idle. Now that she's running will get the timing light onto
her to set it correctly.
EDIT: Carb needs a rebuild - hence why she sounds like she's got a lumpy
cam lol :P

Geo Tracker timing belt
Part 2 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDXslmo_-Zc
Learning as I go. Belt was about $28 bucks at NAPA. The crankshaft seal
about $9. It started raining on the way back, and I'm a walking zombie
today from my hour of sleep, so I'll continue on the assembly, and that
wacky adjuster, another day!
Suzuki Samurai G13BA engine for sale
This engine is a Suzuki G13BA out of a Samurai. It is the fuel injected
1.3L engine that came factory on the 1990-1995 SJ413 Samurai and 1989
Sidekick, although it will work just fine in the older Samurais (the intake
manifold/carb setup bolts right up to it).
This engine has about 130k miles on it; some of them were behind a
motorhome, but unknown how many. It runs fine with no problems. I pulled
it from a Samurai for a 1.6L 8 valve sidekick engine swap.
It comes with what is shown in the pics; complete long block including
alternator, water pump, intake manifold/tbi, etc. It also has a billet
aluminum spidertrax crank pulley with a v-belt for the water pump/fan and
alternator and serpentine for a power steering pump. It does not come with
flywheel or distributor (used them in the engine swap).
How to: Replace a timing belt and water pump - part 2
In this video I explain and show the steps required to install a timing
belt and water pump. The steps and difficulty for this will be different on
The steps and techniques for replacing the timing belt and water pump that
are shown in this video will be similar,if not the same,on Honda 4 cylinder
This video should be used as a basic guide and you should always consult
your manual before performing maintenance on your vehicle.
