Re: Mk1 vit engine swap

Sorry but I don't have any dimensions for the Bush, just a pic i found on the internet. It's a pretty simple part though if needed, O.d. to match the bearing in the flywheel. I.d. to match the input shaft of the 1.6, flange to stop it sliding through the bearing when the gearbox is mated up. I need ...

Re: 1972 lj20

Normally the VIN plate is just inside the driver door footwell area. Also the vin number should be on the front right chassis rail in front of the shock mounts.

Are you in the UK? I might be interested in your LJ20

Re: Back to Suzuki - SZ5 Vitara

Welcome to the forum, sorry I can't help much unless it's got cart spring suspension but we do have a few GV owners on here that might be able to advise.
