Having problems with carburettor on a very rare 1991 swift glx saloon 4wd. It has a G16B engine. Does anyone have any info about a replacement carb which will fit this???
Or is it possible to fit a GTi G13B engine and keep it 4wd, or maybe just the cylinder head and efi. I cant find any info on this car its so rae!!!

if it is a 1.6l AWD Suzuki Sedan - the car should then be fitted with a SOHC and a single point fuel injection - not a carby.

These cars are awesome and I have one.

There are ways of converting the top end to a DOHC from a 1.3l GTi engine .. but lots of things to be done including external ECU and fuel pump etc.

One thing's for sure: you're looking at modifying your gearbox to match it to a 1.3-litre engine.

Fitting the GTi head and injection to the G16B is possible and interesting, but I was looking out at doing this too and got advised never to push the G16B beyond 6500rpm - it won't survive high revving.
Also, some mods need to be done. If the info isn't available here, I can check my source for it.

I think some of the 1.6 4wd swifts were fuel inj, but in the uk they come with carbs. I have read that the carb is the same as on the toyota tercel. I will attatch a file containing the spec. Cheers

If you have the Hitachi carb, the parts are all still available.
Several of the members on this site can bring these back to life:

You can find the 'manual' for the carb
in the gallery section:
gallery/technical/page22
See if it matches what you've got.

I've found that the Tercel is similar, but not identical.

Post some pictures of what you're working on, and we'll be more able to fix you up.

(excuse the terminal prepositions)

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

I have had a few years experience of these carbs on the same car as yourself.

If you are still having problems, please drop me a pm and I will try to help.

Regards,

Alex
