SOURCE: im after the tappet gap settings and points gap

Hi there
Well you have a good BMC there so set the tappets to 12 thou , but check the wear on the rocker bushes first as they have the point of wearing on top and bottom and setting with stact cold some times still rattle so the best way to do them is start run with rocker cover on warm up to thermostat open then remove rocker cover and set throttle to low idle and run andcheck with 12thou push in and out ,if 1 or 2 are noisy
adjust running to 12th.
Points set also to 12thou with points open to any one cylinder and push cam towards the points with your finger and if it opens to 15 (which it will) then set points to 10 as when auto advance opens up 3deg BTDC
the points go to 15 and your spark could give you a problem at pulling power, also auto advance weights in distributor will send points to open up sooner ,reset throttle to 550 rpm and away you go .
Have a good run

SOURCE: How much New oil should i put in to my 1992 Suzuki

First make sure your drain plug and filter are installed and tight, then add 2 liters of oil and check to see if there is any showing on the dipstick. Add one liter at a time and recheck the dipstick. Bring the level up to the full mark on the dipstick. Now start the engine and observe the oil light(turn off) or pressure gauge(pressure goes up) then turn off engine. If neither happens after about 10 seconds, shut off engine and check for leaks or other malfunctions. If all is O.K. then recheck oil level on dipstick. It should be somewhere between the upper and lower level, usually indicated by crosshatch marking. Add oil to bring oil level to full mark. Small amount at a time. Most small vehicles only take about 3.5 to 4 liters.

SOURCE: 1997 GMC 5.0 litre 1500 sierra fuel pump hums all

That's a posibility!

Test fuel pump pressure, if it is low or doesn't hold up, change it before quits.

Also, check the fuel pump relay, it could be stucked.

Good Luck

5 generations. many are part time 4wd, ever read who to use that?

gently to soft dirt ,grass /sand or gravel and shift out out of part time.

Just after engine torque settings for a 2 litre cortina 1981 cylinder head and crank settings

wow a real engine built by proper craftsman in dagenham ,well the head bolts are around 70 lbs ,tappet settings 12 inlet and 15 exhaust unless its the Gt version then they were wider but clacked like hell so fit a standard cam ,2.0 engine is valve free so if belt snaps you do not damage the valves ,timing for unleaded fuel which these engines will run on is about 6? static .timing marks are easy to see ,These engine are stelite coated valves and seats so even 1972 engine one the first engines will run on unleaded fuel .engine oil use shell rotella diesel /petrol as this was used on all ford engines in the assembly plant .Another tip use the 98 octane fuel as they were designed to run on 4 star petrol which was 97 octane .points gap 25th and plug gaps 25 as well ,cannot seem to remember the firing order though ,old age comes to us all iam afraid but i think it was 1243 but it could have been 1342 ,i should know i fitted enough plug leads in my time .

It would depend on what Transmission u have, Auto or Man

But just in case you can Have a look in the suzuki owners forum for an exact volume of gearbox oil capacity
