  1. Samurai heaters

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Well, to add sarcasm....... it'll be mounted on the passenger side!
  2. Hidden Winch Mount?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Bumper is attached, just wasn't included in the pics from last night. Plow is mounted and have already had offers for my rig from the head of our maintenance department at work. I politely told him its not for sale. You know you've done something right when your wife takes one look at it and...
  3. Samurai heaters

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Interesting. Guess I'll try everything out prior to actual installation. If it blows, it'll be in box right above the drain holes in the floorboard. See? I'm thinking ahead!
  4. Samurai heaters

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Have never been impressed with the heaters that came in these matchbox cars, and now that I'll be plowing with mine, I've decided to do a little upgrading. I've cleaned out the heater plenum of all the twigs and leaves that seem to find their way in there, and have even gone as far as adding...
  5. Hidden Winch Mount?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    So I'm all recovered from surgery (almost) and had some time to install the winch just before Winter arrived here in Montana. For the record, Glacier National Park got hit with 36in of snow in 12hrs on Sunday...... My factory AC is still fully functional and I have no intention of removing it...
  6. NTM TinTop

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Thought I'd post up a pic of the "Dastardly Duo...." You can just make out the protruding winch off the front bumper on my Zook on the left. The tin top has a new clutch, OME 1.5in lift, reman engine, and no AC.
  7. NTM TinTop

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Picked up another Zook, but this one will be for my son. Its an 88 tin top with about 40k miles on a rebuilt engine, new clutch, and a 1.5in OME springs/shocks for $1600. Runs pretty decent on the factory carb once warmed up. Had a nasty growl from the rear end that turned out to be bad...
  8. 87 Samurai Weber Conversion?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Sorry, been down awhile from surgery...... I bought my 3k Toyota from Amazon for about $50 shipped. Didn't need to do anything to it prior to installation. Once installed, I used my vacuum gauge to set the idle mixture, then set the idle with my trusty Sears engine analyzer (from the 80s)...
  9. Hidden Winch Mount?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Don, that is exactly what I plan to do once my face recovers from surgery. Thanks
  10. Looking for the easiest (and cheapest) ways to lift an 87 samurai 2 inches

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Oh my hell, some people worry about nothing and try to make it everyone's business! I've had more Suzuki vehicles than I'd care to admit to, and have done all types of modifications to them. Hands down, the easiest and cheapest is a shackle lift. 2in is very easy to obtain and will allow you...
  11. Hidden Winch Mount?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    New winch controller, mounting plate, and solenoid arrived in the mail last night. Probably not gonna get it done just yet as I have a camping trip this weekend followed by surgery. Thanks for the idea!
  12. Hidden Winch Mount?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Slowly getting my projects completed and I'm ready to start the next. I have a small ATV winch that I'd like to add to the front end to lift a snow plow. It will not be used for off-road recovery, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this without having suggesting I add a gigantic...
  13. First Question

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    I haven't found it to be an issue. Just glad I have everything back together and working again.
  14. First Question

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Don't let it stop you! I had to use a RHD turn signal switch assembly because it was new for $40 vs $300+ for the LHD version. That also meant I had to use the RHD steering cover plastics, but again, super cheap at less than $20USD shipped. Look at Amazon and Ebay if available in your region.
  15. First Question

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Many of the parts will also not interchange because of the RHD configuration of your model. Yes, there will be some parts you could use off an American version, but I wouldn't expect more than 50%.
  16. samurai parts value?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    If the axles are complete and in good condition (i.e., not bent), then I'd say you could get around $2-300 per axle from the right buyer. The engine and trans, again....in good condition, maybe another $500-1000 from the right buyer. But you have to realize that most people aren't going to...
  17. 87 Samurai Weber Conversion?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    I bought a chinese knock-off Toyota 3k from Amazon for $50 and then bought a conversion kit off Ebay for another $120. Only a slight performance improvement but it idles super smooth now that the vacuum hoses a 99% removed. Starts much easier with the manual choke, too. Mileage didn't suffer a...
  18. 87 Samurai Coolant Leak

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Chances are its one of the hose that go into the intake manifold from the heater valve. Its almost directly above the starter.
  19. MPG w/different carbs?

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Just installed a Toyota 3k on my 87 Sam. and was wondering what kind of MPG differences anyone has noticed? The stock carb was full of vacuum leaks and I thought that was contributing to the poor (17-20) mileage I was getting. Of course, I have no idea what condition the engine is in as I've...
  20. '87 Samurai Worth???

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Got my stock 87 a couple of months ago in a straight trade for a 4x4 ATV that was worth about $2500. Guy I got it from didn't know how to do minor wrenching, so that's when we made the trade. I figure with the few repairs I've done and the toyota carb swap I'm about to do, it would fetch north...
