wOW NO YEAR STATED, 89-99> n o caar stated either,
so I guess G16a or G16b engine.... why must i guess.... lots of 1.6 by suzuki made.....
nothing, its free running, most G16s are.
cant speak for all 8 cams sold world wide, but stock USA
its free running. why not put the crank at TDC #1 firing
and turn cam by hand and feel, (reality) look ma, no hitting....
that warning is just Haynes (junk book) stating what is printed
on all real SUZ. OEM FSM books, it states this.
and is a worldly warning, on all engine they sell world wide all 56 engines sold.
most G16 are free running SOHC , usually are and rare DOHC.
most authorities, all that ive seen and seen most all mimic
the above factory warning, but what else can they do..
they read it and its CLEAR , no?
now your question, sure it dont say what to do
after all they dont know where you left the cam,
if super paranoid, (been there)
we do this,
put crank TDC, mark, (fires every 180 degrees it does)
the turn pulley to 90degrees, this puts all pistons 1/2 up.
now drop the head on to block with , cam cog with E mark at 12pm.
this is #4 firing.
now back the crank up CCW 90%
now #4 is firing.
easy huh> ?
note how the G16 has 2 heads, and are done DIFFERENTLY.
if not paranoid?
put crank to TDC mark, 0deg
put cam cog to E mark up(16v). or pimple mark up(8v) 12pm
there is a 12pm mark on top back of cam cog
this is #4 firing, an is where all G16s are timed. (ALL)
there are false marks ,fully documented in link for 4 engines.
(they changed marks 4 times)
