Hi there,

I have a Suzuki Samurai that had the 1000cc engine, then that motor broke and i put there the engine from a swift gti.


I have some problems the direct injection, the fuel doesn't go to the injectors.
The gasoline pressure outside the gas tank is ok, on the engine too. I can't figure out where the problem is, i'm trying to solv this problem more than a year.

What I want to do is convert the engine to carbs. I need to know what type of induction manifold is used and where I can get one used or new, and what carbs can be used.

I have a friend who made that conversion, here it is the photo.

You laugh because i'm different...

I laugh because you're all the same

You can use either Webers or bike carbs. If you are doing a bike carb swap, you will need to custom make a manifold. If yousing Webers, there are some places around that can do you a manifold. Try going to ukswift site and talking to "Hamgar" about one.

Don't ask me, I don't know anything. And just because I'm a senior member, it does not mean I have as many wrinkles as ellpee. 1500+ posts and still I haven't got a clue.
