    hey bex,
    my gf's tracker is rubbing on front bumper. we are getting it painted soon and first want to lift it somewhat to stop the rubbing. i saw a few cheap 2 inch coil spacer lifts on ebay and was considering buying them. any info on them? we were looking at the aluminum spacers vs. polyurethane spacers. is there one better than the other? do they make noises/squeaking noises. fyi the lift is only for show, my gf is a good safe driver who does not off road or need any lift besides for clearance.
    vehicle specs: 92 4x4 automatic tracker

    Sorry for butting in..but I had a friend that had that lower pulley issue...bolt was loose, complete mess up the end of the crank..key-way needed a new crank to fix it...or weld the pulley on the end of the crankshaft(which I would't do)...another tracked went to the scrap yard..after I took my parts of course..

    The problem can be either worn cogs on the crank pulley, a bad belt, not having the crank pulley bolt torqued to 94 ft/lbs which leads to the dreaded keyway shearing on the crank snout so that the pulley is no longer aligned properly. The crank pulley is what keeps the belt from walking into the cover. When you last changed the timing belt, did you remove the center bolt on the crank pulley (not necessary to do), and if so, torque it properly when you replaced it? If the belt is ok, I'd check the pulley alignment, bolt torque, and, with fingers and toes crossed, the keyway (although there is a fix for this on the forum). Good luck.

    Good Day Bex
    I have read several threads and it appears I have the dreaded swollen timing belt cover issue. I have been snowmobile trail grooming now for a few weeks and after spending hours at 10km/h in this rig you get to notice the engine sounds. Heard something rubbing in the engine Bay today and saw the light rub mark of the bottom pulley on the timing belt cover. Got home pulled the belt off and it has just started to rub but it will be through in no time if I continue to operate this unit.
    This unit runs so smooth I can't believe there could be any other issues but asking you here I'm ready to be educated. I live north of Edmonton Alberta and feel I should be able to order the necessary parts.
    The unit has 105000km and is a 1991 Geo auto 3 speed.
    The geo with the snow tracks on have worked flawless so I would be prepared to pay the Piper.
    Thanks in advance

    I would first confirm that I actually needed a headgasket, rather than doing all this work on 'I think I have one'. There are ways to test the coolant for exhaust gas, checking the oil for coolant, etc. Presumably, you have overheated the car....If so, there is a possibility that the head is warped and needs to be checked and/or re-milled, so no, a tear down would be in your future.

    Can I ask you some advise, you seem to really know your Suzuki's. Mate I have a 92 Suzuki Vitara with the G16b engine and I think I have a blown headgasket, Is it possible to change the head gasket without taking apart the head? i.e. all valves etc? Cheer mate hope to hear from you soon?

    Hi Bex
    My sidekick now runs.
    The timing belt was installed wrong by the previous owner.
    Thank you.

    Nope, most certainly not. The ECU for the 95 governs spark - the 89 has a stand alone distributor. A totally different animal. Spec out your 95 - the ECU is different for TBI, MPI, manual tranny, auto tranny, California emissions, etc. Most of them are not interchangeable. The safest thing to do is to get the model number of the ECU that came with your car, and get the same model. If you have a current ECU that is not working, normally it is only 3 capacitors that need to be changed - a $5.00 fix - so give more info as to your problem, or are you just looking for a spare??

    Will an EGR off a '89 Tracker fit a '95?
