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

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara V6 startup after timing job
*UPDATE* After about 9000km from this chain job, the engine has started to
develop yet again more chain slap noise. Also, my bank #1 chain is making
a buzzing noise over 3000rpm. The water pump that came with the kit has
also failed prematurely. I opted for the cheap ebay chain kit, and it
seems like I made the wrong choice. Don't make the same mistake I did!
The timing chain job is $1000+ at regular shops, so don't cheap out on
Startup condition of my Suzuki H25 engine after new timing chain + guides +
tensioners + belts + waterpump + 5W20 Synthetic. Engine has 228,000km's
and has never been rebuilt. The main tensioner has been changed by the
previous owner. The engine recieved 4000-5000km oil changes, but as proven
by many GV owners, this is not good enough. 3000km oil changes are
recommended if you want to make the tensioner(s) last.
Before the job, the engine had a light chain slap noise due to the #1 chain
tensioner failing once again. I acted quickly and replaced every single
part related to the chain drive system. DO NOT WAIT FOR IT TO GET WORSE.
The H25 / H27 are interference engines. Chain stretch can wear down your
sprockets and cam gears, and when it's bad enough to jump a tooth it's game

- Second part of the video shows the oil spray activity under the cam
covers. The gushing noise is the actual oil being splashed around under
the cam covers. Let me know if this spray seems insufficient!
Fitting new valve guide seals without removing the cylinder head Suzuki Vitara
This is how you can remove and replace valve guide seals with the head
still on the engine. Normally you have to have the head off so you can fit
the valve spring compressor on to the head of the valve. I had heard of
this method but never tried or seen it done before. The only special tool
is a piece of string.
Watch the video and see the "Essex Red Neck" at work :-)
1993 Geo Metro engine vibration
Just checked all the motor mounts and they look good. Timing appears to be
out (was reading 20 degrees - might be off a tooth on my timing belt).
Fresh engine rebuild with a 10 degree BTDC camshaft from 3-tech.
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

Timing Belt - the Forgotten Belt (by Dayco)
Timing Belt - the Forgotten Belt. This video stresses the importance of
checking and following the manufacturers recommended replacement interval
for the timing belt. Along with recommendations to replace the "hardware"
associated with the Timing Belt (Tensioner, Water Pump, and Idler Pulleys)
at the same time the Timing Belt is being replaced. To find out more

How to Remove Stubborn Toyota 20R - 22R - 22RE Crankshaft Pulley Bolt 1979 - 1995
A long (but detailed) video on the tips and tricks I've learned over the
years on how to remove stubborn crankshaft pulley bolts on Toyota 22R
series engines. (22R 22RE 22RET)
By far, the best way would be to have the SST (shop specific tool) that
Toyota recommends, but not many folks (me included) has one of those in
their garage. This is a video of some of the tips and tricks that I've
learned over the years on getting this sometimes EXTREMELY stubborn bolt to
The most common reason that you need to be able to get this bolt out is so
that you can access the front main seal on the front end of the crankshaft.
Most older Toyotas develope an oil leak through the seal. Oil works past
the worn-out seal and then gets flung around the front of the engine and
engine bay by the crankshaft pulleys. It's really a pretty easy fix for a
very messy problem...if you can get the crankshaft pulley bolt off in order
to access the seal.
