Re: G16 into sj410 info

Thanks Twiss and Scottie - excellent info. I'll go read up on the wiring of a 16v next... but I might like the simplicity of an 8v/carb set-up.

Re: G16 into sj410 info

My '85 Jap 410 already has a 1.3 5spd in it, so not totally original anyway. So I got to thinking maybe a Vit 1.6. First thing is there are 8v and 16v Vit engines around and also maybe carb and F/I variants. I'm actually quite happy with a well-sorted carb set-up (got SU on at moment) but what is re...

Re: SJ410 door refurb

my winders are Ok Donkey - it's the channel that bolts along top that I need one of - it's not mounted on the winder in your pic. I'll try India Maruti I think and it might be the one in the door coming off is Ok.

Re: sj blowers are they supposed to be so bad

mine was exactly same - managed to get some of the rubbish out poking around. Is there a neat way of getting inside the heater box to clear it properly??

Re: SJ noisy final drive

Hi Andy - it's low speeds, in traffic or dropping from say 30 to stop. We put a new clutch in only about 1k miles ago (well, you did really !).
Fine accelerating, it's only when engine is acting as a brake, then disconnect engine (drop clutch), all fine again.

(This is a 2wd road condition) Have a noise - at low speeds: take foot off accelerator but leave clutch engaged (so engine is braking a bit) - sounds rough, a bit graunchy. Drop the clutch and freewheel, all is calm, noise ...

Patience will pay big rewards in terms of the value you get, and if you have looked at a few you'll soon know the good uns. Bro...
