Congrats, indeed a milstone. In de video indeed it sounds a bit strange, but with mine that was the same (my video was lost in the crash of the site, will put one back on).

Went through the thread again, but I think the spot you put the ECU is not the best. Better put it somewhere inside the car when you have the possibility.

I like the way you put the front engine mounts and incorporating one of them in the mounting of the radiator. On the whole a very nice build, almost looks like that engine belongs there originally.

Thanks Dennis - sound quality isn't good through the phone and the rattling was the alternator bracket (after I'd removed the offending unit). I have relocated the ECU to under the dash (on advice from others here as well as you).

Really looking forward to getting the car compliance and back on the road now.

Cheers Adrian

Well - after 8months and 8 days the G13B powered Moke is back on the road again (albeit a little unofficially). I managed to get the remainder of the wiring finished off and did a couple of other little jobs that needed to be done. Then a quick spin round the block with the eldest as cameraman. The sound quality isn't the best but the car goes and sounds really good. The motor and box are really smooth. Absolutely love the 5th gear.

There's a few things that aren't quite right:

1. The front geometry is miles out. Tracking is somewhere near but caster needs some work.
2. The brakes could do with bleeding again but the booster has made a huge difference.
3. I need to fit a correct temp sender for the gauge as the Suzuki one gives a false reading.
4. The speedo needs recalibrating as its also miles out. Sort of ok to 60 but then reads very low.

Other than that, the car is already for compliance. I'll get on the phone tomorrow ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I've attached a link to the video is below - not only that we also spotted another Moke (white one) at 24s.

Cheers Adrian

I have feedback from the mod plate engineer. The only thing that needs to be addressed is to fit a dual circuit master cylinder. I've now got one on order, so when it's fitted, I'll be mod plated and all legal.

Suzuki Moke got a wash today (first one in 9 months) ;D ;D ;D

Currently got the wheels and tyres from the black Moke fitted (as these are a bit more legal for the mod plating process).

Cheers Adrian

Thanks very much - going to try and sort out an under-reading speedo today. Back in my mini days you could take the glass off, remove the needle and replace it at a lower spring tension. Not sure that will work with one of these modern Chinese copies. Let's see

Cheers Adrian

I believe you can fit the suzuki speedo into the mini binacle. That's our plan for The Green One
