I think that yearly mileage won't be more than 5000km so if I now renew most of the parts and gaskets, I don't have to worry about those for the next 10-15 years

Got new paint over the valve cover. Damn it took long time to get all the oil and dirt of it.



The clutch disc was also worn out, so next time when I hit the garage I'll need to have loads of new parts so that I can start putting it back together

Oh yeah, got some new parts



Do you think that this is bit of an overkill for the swift engine?

Not overkill at all. Nice, what are they off?
I have a set of R1 twin butterfly throttle bodies sitting in the corner, waiting...

Those are from '05 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 I think that I need to the remove the 2nd row of butterflies and decide that will I run the gxsr first row of injectors or the swift's injectors. Decisions decisions...

They are the same as ours. We removed the 2nd row of butterflies and used the swift injectors. They sound awesome

You don't happen to have any close-up pics of how you have plugged the injector and butterfly holes do you?

edit: Just noticed from the build thread the picture about the nicely plugged injector holes..

edit: Just noticed from the build thread the picture about the nicely plugged injector holes..
The injector holes were tapped. (Metric thread I seem to remeber)
The inserts were turned down from some bolts.
Screwed in with fibre washers and studlock.

We left the second butterfly shaft in place (removed the butterflys) as it provides extra rigidity.. we had already removed one of the long bolts that hold the bodies together, and any movement would cause the shaft for the butterflys we are using to bind.

ps

It is supposed to work better with the injectors from the swift, in the head.

One thing we would do differently next time, is have a better mechanical connection between the TBs and the manifold.. the silicon hose and clamps are not enough on their own.. the silicon doesn not grip the metal like the original black mouldings.. we had the TBs drop off on one test run ! Later we added a temporary bracket from the cam cover to the TBs.. This will be changed when the air cleaner box is built.

The throttle cable connection is a bit awkward on Pete's, it works but is a nightmare to change the cable.. we had to call the AA when the nipple slipped ! That will be re-engineered when we fix the engine.

That's a good information, thanks Will need to figure out some kind of bracket to hold the TBs in place as I sure don't want them to drop off.

I found some used parts that I "had to buy"



What you can see there are:

- Cylinder head with cams and valves (car had been in a crash, has few damages but cams and valves are good).
- 4 to 1 exhaust, few dents here and there, doesn't matter. 2" out.
- mk1 gearbox.
- Oil pan.
- Autometer Monster tach.
- Few inlet and exhaust manifold flanges. No need to do those myself =)
- 19 teeth countershaft and 75 teeth final gear ring.

ANY ideas what sort of final drive ratio I'd get with those rings? I have understood that those ones should provide a bit taller ratio than standard gti rings.. am i right here?

Hi Purtis,

Those parts are good find... apart from your inputshaft and crown wheel.
If it is from mk2 gearbox, you won't be able to fit into your mk1 gearbox.
I like that rev counter !

Oil pan looks like from mk1.
Do I see steel flanges for both inlet and exhaust!?
Do you have spare exhaust one!? wink wink!

Cheers
Atchi

Hi Atchi,

thanks for pointing out the correct names for me actually that shaft do fit mk1, it was compared next to mk2 ones that are different There's a possibility for me to get a shaft and crown wheel from mk1 1.0 GA which should have a bit taller FD than gti. Will see what I'll fit in the end.

Yes, you can see right, there are 2 inlet and one exhaust flanges. The exhaust is kinda spare but I might need it at some point. I'm not sure that will I use that rev counter as I already have a bit smaller Autometer one but as said, that big one would look cool thou

Cheers
