    The engine came out of a D reg suzuki sj413 jx and it is running on a carburettor its just the two wires from the distributor that i dont know where to wire to, i believe when they are wired the engine will fire up because there is no spark at the moment.

    Regards Lee

    So the replacement motor is carburated and the original was fuel injected right?

  • Justin May 11, 2010

    Hey Lee,

    What year and model is the 1.3 from? Are you running fuel injection or did you switch it to a carburator? If it was an EFI car, those wires could be from the cam position sensor which are commonly found in the distributors. Keep me posted.

    Does the old distributor have an internal coil and the new one have an external? I'm wondering if that is what these 2 wires are for. Can you post a picture?

    Thanks - Tech101

    I'm glad you got it going. Can you tell me what the wires went to? Thanks - Tech101

Suzuki f10a

what is an LJ80 ? posted to F10a. its not a F10. its and F8A.
so , shoe drops,., what country, cars vary by country,, year,, engine type , sub types and options.
most of these cars are in museums no.w..

wiki history... wow.
The Jimny8/LJ80 was an updated version of the LJ50 with an 800 cc, four-stroke, in-line four-cylinder engine, followed by the Jimny 1000/SJ410 and Jimny 1300/SJ413. An updated version of the SJ413 became known as the Samurai and was the first Suzuki officially marketed in the US. The series from SJ410 to SJ413 was known as the Sierra in Australia, and remained the Jimny in some markets.
F8A - 0.8 L (797 cc, 62.0 x 66.0 mm) SOHC - this was Suzuki's first four-stroke car engine.

NO spark with and old car like that , an FSM would really solve all this.
it would , youd turn the spark page, and read.
it would tell you the tests.
no ECU back then, just a stand alone Dizzy.
with coil.
so got spark out the top HV terminal of the COIL....
that is first. if not work back from there.

does the rotor turn cranking?
does the coil have 12vdc on the plus terminal key on?
does the coil minus lug PULSE , cranking
all yes, then check coil primary ohms and secondary ohms , unplugged 10 ohms primary (about) and 10,000 ohm secondary.
not infinity, and not 0 ohms ever.
that is a start. ask for more.

here is your points dizzy

bad points?
open or shorted condensor, both cause dead spark or weak.
why not tune it up with new points and condensor.
and get fat spark.

Suzuki vitara 1998 rev counter not working

The tachometer ,
what engine, there are many and who the tach is wired varies by that. factor.
1.6L? how many cylinders.?
stating country , really helps too as cars are not same world wide, ,,,, ok?
a 98 USA VIT
would be...1.6L uses the 1 ingition coil brown wire as the Signal.
the Tacho in this car, has 3 wires. in the HEAD.
1: 12v, if this is lost ,you loose other gages.
2: ground, same if lost , you loose others.
3: brown wire, if this wire is dead, the engine fuel is cut.
so since the engine didnt die , the tach actual is toast.

but i need full car spec and country to answer intelligently and accurately.

quote (which one do you have)?
In 1999 the Vitara parts got new design. It was a 4-seater that featured with 1.3L, 1.6L and 1.8L straight-4 gasoline engine available with carburator and electronic fuel injection. All versions came with either rear-drive or four-wheel drive. "

I changed my spark plug wires and possibly have them connected wrong. Is there a schematic that I might follow in order to ensure they are connected correctly?

FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: 1988-95 4.3L Engines Firing Order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise 91022g01.gif
Fig. 2: 1996-98 4.3L Engines Firing Order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise 91022g02.gif
Fig. 3: 1988-95 5.7L and 7.4L Engines Firing Order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise 91022g03.gif

I have an old suzuki sj 413 , i want to install power steering

The only way you may get this problem solved is to find a late SJ413 which may have had it, and graft it on. Yours will have leaf springs and you'll have find one of the last leaf-spring models at the wreckers. They may not have even come into your country with power steering - they didn't get released in Australia with P/S and the only way to find it was at a wreckers that brings in cars from Japan or the like. The cheapest way to have the lightest possible steering is to stick with the original width and offset rims, and to keep the tyre pressure up to 35-40 psi. The recommended is only 22 psi!
