Vitara G16B tricks or tips?

Unread post by amon1989 » December 21st, 2012, 11:27 am

Hi guys, im putting a new clutch in and every new seal and gasket in my mates vitara estate 96 model with G16b engine, just after any tips or things that are good to know. Have done some searching, all seems quite straight forward.
Few questions,
Is it easier to leave box in car or bring it out on engine?
The engine detonates at over 4000 rpm, afm? or tps? o2 sensor?

Just checking theres nothing unexpected coming..

Thanks in advance.

All good, finished now. Person who last assembled it mush have been special. Also was interesting to see it'd thrown a rod once.
Timing was 8 degrees advanced, now it runs sweet but so underpowered compared to before.

The timing should be set with the vacuum advance removed if you set the advance with the vacuum line on the distributer then the distributer will be retarded.
