as i don't have a manual for either engine i am not sure if i have missed a spacer or something ??
i am guessing that the dizzy from the swift keep the cam forward but the sierra cam and dizzy has the gear on the end will this stop the end float? or will this give me problems
if any one has a picture of the head showing Assembly or have any ideas as to why it is like this
i thought the front sprocket would stop it moving back
are the swift ans sierra cam wheels different ???
i am using the swift one as it is in heaps better condition
thanks any help would be greatly appreciated
Ok, I found the way... This is it....
And don't give up, keep trying. I' ve install a Vitara 1.6 engine (G16A) on my Jimny, Keeping the Cilinder head cover, camshaft and all electrical and CPU of Jimny engine (G13
. After some personal work and adjustments it works more than fine. Everything is possible
