Default G16a into a samurai

Hi
Has anyone done this conversion without the adaptor plate?
I have a 1988 samurai sj413 with a G13A motor in place and I know that there is a load of info on the net about this conversion but wanted to know if it can be done with out the adaptor plate.
I have about 3" of lift so the sump should not be an issue.
Any advice and do's and dont's welcome.
Any one done this conversion with comments.. I will be sticking with the carbed version as I know nothing about fuel injection and dont want to get stuck in the bush. At least a carb can be force fed from a can if the pump fails.

hi,

i have just put the G16a carb engine in my SJ without an adapter plate! dunno where you are but lots of ppl in the Uk swear by not using a plate.

went in ok actually... the main point is that you have to re-drill the gearbox holes in the engine! make the top two bigger and relocate the bottom two. also make sure you get the top bolts from the G16a as the SJ ones are too small!

make sure you have the skinnier starter motor or grind some of the fatter starter casing off.

you will also need to relocate/adjust one of the engine mounts. its the driver side one on my sj (the side with the starter on it)

i have no lift so i've had to change the sump. its quite easy but you have to alter the oil pickup pipe bracket.

one random thing i found was that the engine/gearbox are now further forward (???) so i had to put a prop spacer inline with the gearbox>transferbox propshaft

anyway, best of luck! also the links below may help

Difflock :: View topic - 1600 conversion write up for you lot.

Difflock :: View topic - 1600 into sj without a conversion plate

final note: if you can, try and find a skinners union (SU) carb and make yourself an adapter/custom manifold. if you have a 1600 and SU carb it will go like **** off a shovel!

haha wish i'd had a look at that page when making my pipe!!!

I had to get someone else to re-weld it for me, as I dont have a welder, and you'd be suprised how many wrong places they can put it in without having the engine there!!!

In the end I persuaded a mate with a welder to take his sump off and use his engine as a reference! Bought him a new sump gasket for his troubles!!!

Also, rhinoman, the pulley... is that just so the fan fits on? I haven't found the need to do this but i have a kenlow jobby and am using the vit alternator...

Cheers bud

I didn't get any accessories with the 1.6 engine so I used all the SJ bits including the alternator..

I did the swap and here are some pics of the engine mount mod on the right side (passenger side in Canada, Drivers side for you I guess) and the tabs that I had welded on the tranny (Gearbox)





I used a starter from a 1.6L and my engine came with the alternator and other goodies. I had to use an electric fuel pump because the 1.3L I had came with a mechanical one.Hopefully this helps.

Hi Pilsner,

When you did the engine mount mod like this did you find that the engine and gearbox position was altered a lot? For example, my 1st gear is now where 3rd was, and 5th is halfway into my knee.

Think I may have to space out with washers, but it doesnt appear to make any difference when you're driving it...

Smile G16A engine with original gearbox into a sammy

Hi, would like to know if its possible to use original gearbox/transfer case of the G16A to a samurai?
will it fit into the sammy?
Im currently running F10A engine- 4 cylinder / 4 speed manual.
And planning to get the G16A -8valve from the vitara.
I just want to make sure if its possible to fit in all its components to my sammy...

badly need your inputs

It would take a lot of fabrication. The Vit has a combined tcase and gearbox assembly, the SJ uses a seperate tcase. You would also need fit a body lift or enlarge the transmission tunnel.
