Question about 1987 Suzuki Samurai

1 Answer

Stock 1986 Suzuki Samurai. On the way to town today My Sensor lite, Battery & brake lite came on on the dash panel. I stopped and found that the bolt that attaches the altenator adjustement bracket to the water pump had fallen out. I replaced the bolt & checked belt tension (OK). Started it back up, and warning lites stayed ON. So Far I've: checked all fuses, cycled the sensor switch, disconnected the battery for a hour/ reconnected it, checked brake fluid level & emergency brake switch (OK), checked altenator output (14+v), and battery & altenator connections. To NO Avail. Theirs no diagnostic port at the fuse block. What Now???

Have you tested the output of the alternator under a load? Have that done because this sure sounds like a charging system issue. Most parts stores like Autozone will test the battery and Alternator for free.

88 suzuki samurai I have has a weber carb with water choke. I notice that the hose from carb has a bulge in it. I dont know the diameter of the hose coming off the carb to purchace another one? Also, i...


custom carb .
who knows what you have, even diff, engine.
remove hose, measure it. if not up to measuring, take it to any shop
and they will tell you, what I.D it is. (most hoses are marked)
the jerking can be many things.
seems to me its the DASH pot effect.
on custom carbs there is no dash pot, so when you drop the hammer (throttle ) you get 100% closes throttle and next snapping
the orig, carb had a dash pot, now missing.
one trick is to run high idle speeds, or back off throttle slower driving.
or add a dashpot.
it simple delays throttle snap back.
sure the timing changes rpm that is why.
when tuning any carb, you set timing first , then tune carb to that.
stock timing and stock advance if motor is still stock,
you dizzy has stock advancing weights and springs, i test those first.
cheers.
