Probably the combination switch, located in steering column, controls all lights. On ours, we lost all lights EXCEPT headlights, fuses and bulbs were all good. Replaced the switch yesterday (well, our Sidekick had two switches) and now all lights work fine. You need to pull the steering wheel to get at the switches. We got parts at a junkyard, but AutoZone also sold them at less than dealer prices.

1987 Suzuki samurai take 30 minutes to start in the morning only the it start OK for the day seems like it not getting gas in the morning only

the G13 or G16 engine, and 1987 year was carbs, not EFI.
so if it has carb , you need to say so.

if it starts fast with test fuel (spray)
then your choke is dead.
ever adjust a choke before.

Tail lights and turn signals dont work

Use the wiring schematic to follow the wires and check for any breakage or burnt wires. Repair any breakage and recheck. Check all grounds in the circuit as well; a faulty ground can cause total loss of lights.
Check the brake light switch near the break pedal. Use a voltmeter to make certain the voltage is correct with switch engaged and disengaged. Check the grommet that depresses the switch as well. Repair any issues and recheck.

I have a 1987 samurai and replacing the head but I'm not sure if they are yield type head bolts! Can anyone help with this answer?

By "yield" type, I guess you are talking about the single purpose bolts. Samurai bolts are not the tapered type. The manual says nothing and I have used them over often with good reults

The timing belt broke,went to replace it, head crank wont turn

The vehicle has an interference engine. This means that when the piston can hit the valves when not in time. The valves are damaged or bent or shattered . The head or engine most likely is going to have to be replaced.
