Re: Santana SJ413 1989 Ignition problem

You quite often find that the old wires break inside the insulation just before the spade terminals, especially in the engine bay, might be worth cutting the connectors off and crimping new ones on at the coil and on the trigger wire for the starter. If cleaning the connectors here helps it could be...

Re: Grand vitara2ltr td 2002 wont start

That age Diesel GVs were known to have immobiliser issues occasionally if i remember correctly. Sounds like it could be your issue if you can't hear the fuel pump priming when it happens. Sorry I can't be much more help on the issue, it's just something i remembered being mentioned quite a lot of ti...

Re: Suzuki sj 410 from Cornwall PROJECT Never Ending Project

You might find that 31s catch with the shackle reverse as it pushes the wheel backwards towards the bulkhead during articulation. It's better to run shackles up front with larger tyres for a number of reasons. Personally I'd also try to avoid going spoa, there are a lot of problems associated with i...

Re: Oil pressure

I think you will be very lucky for there to be no internal damage after running with minimal oil pressure, it can literally take minutes to destroy the camshaft and head with no oil pressure.

Re: Suzuki sj 410 from Cornwall PROJECT Never Ending Project

Nice to see you back on here, SJ is looking good.

What about just loosing the shackle reverse up front to drop that down 2" to match the rear? doesn't look like you need that much lift for your tyre size.

Re: New T shirts and Hoodies. Support your favourite website.

Hellloooo If there's a bit of interest I'll set up a pre order for some Hoodies and Tees, makes it a bit easier for me financially if I can round up some pre orders as i'm sure you can understand. I need a new hoody myself :lol: Life gets a bit expensive with a few suzuki projects on the go and tryi...

Re: GV cam follower

Cool that's what we like to hear! I've always used Castrol magnatec in the J and H series engines I've ran with Mahle filters as that's usually what suzuki supply. So the noise is there only on initial cold start up? A rattling timing chain is one of the most common cold start issues on the J and H ...

Re: GV cam follower

Are you sure its a cam follower? the J20 engine is pretty fussy with regards to oil service intervals, you need to use good quality oils and filters as well. They can develop a rattly timing chain on start up if cheaper oils are used or service intervals are not kept on top of. The timing chain tens...

Re: Wheels and Tyre sizes help please

Also it will be fine on motorways with 235/75s if it has a healthy engine, be even better with a 410 transfer box as I mentioned before.

I used to drive an SJ410 on the motorway with 235/75s :lol:
