i have a 88 suzuki samurai with a rebuilt motor,pretty much everything is new or had been rebuilt and a few days ago it just shut off on me in normal driving conditions..i got the carb rebuilt because i thought it was time to and it was pretty much the only thing on the whole sammy i havent rebuilt or replaced and it still wont run right..is sputters and spits gas through the carb when sputtering? i checked the fuel filer, fuel pump ,distributor , rotor, plugs pretty much everything. last resort i pulled the timing belt cover off and everything looked ok i took the belt off to closely inspect the belt and there was a small teat in the middle.The belt had only 1000 miles maybe 1500 since the rebuild..i ordered a new OEM belt today..is it possible that the tear caused the belt to slip and knock it off timing? or could it be another problem? she was running perfect from day one of firing her up since the rebuild..any suggestions? maybe a valve? any help is appreciated..
