I own a 97 geo metro with the 1.3 8v engine. The block code is g13b and since it's an 8v that tells me it's the g13ba motor. Now I just bought a rebuild kit for a g13a not knowing that the g13a is a 77mm stroke when my motor has a 75.5mm stroke. Will that make a difference on how the rebuilt kit will work for my car as far as the main bearings, rod bearings, and thrust washers go? Also what about the gasket between the b block and the a block? Should I return the kit and order another? Here the link for the rebuilt kit

That certainly looks right to me, everything about it except where it says G13A. I think it's just a misprint, a mistake by the guy who wrote the posting. Pretty sure the A was done in 1994.

According to Wikipedia the G13 A was only in the 86-89 Samauri here in the states. If it says it's for 95-97 G13 That would be a G13 BA.
