I took a look for you there really arent any diagrams online, the timing chain replacement on that engine is very difficult and requires a few special tools only available through Suzuki...your best bet is to buy the factory manual, and the tools. Doing it yourself will only save you about $200.00, because of the cost of the tools required

My 98 mercury mountaineer died and won't start

check fuse, check for fire, if no fire when turning over probably busted timing belt/chain, if fire then check for fuel

1983 vt 500 honda shadow. Replaced both head's. Starts fine has good power. Yet it pop's or back fires some times after giving it progressive fuel. What do you think. Thank you!

Three things that can cause popping or backfiring. 1)You may have cracked, leaking,or broken intake manifolds or bad o-rings on the manifolds. 2)Leaking exhaust gaskets in the head or between the head pipe and muffler. 3)Bad spark plug caps and partially fouled plugs. Check it out.

My 1400 intruder pops and back fires

I think maddogcycle is right. One cylinder is running rich and the other running lean. It seems as though they have not been balanced properly and the mixture not accurately adjusted. The settings on these carburettors are critical and must be adjusted with the proper gauges. I'd advise you to have the carbs cleaned and adjusted and tuned to the engine for balance of inducted air flow and fuel/air ratio (mixture)

Dont start bangs and pops back fire

Sounds like your timing is way off. First I would check your fuel pressure at the fuel rail and also check for spark to make sure you are getting plenty of good strong spark.
Your 02 sensors tell the engine how much fuel to give. Lean/Rich mixtures

If 02 sensors are bad, car will act the same way. Does sound like timing though which is controlled by your car's computer.

You can go to and register for full free online repair manual.

If you have a testing light, you can connect it to #1 plug wire, then aim at crankshaft pulley while someone else turns car over. Then you can see if the timing is off.
