Hi Guys,

I would imagine this has been covered to death somewhere, but I can't find a comprehensive answer.

After owning LJs and SJ410s for several years and got used to them, I've recently bought a 1991 1.3L Samurai and it is as I remembered them - the engine sounds annoyingly 'clappy', especially when cold. I think it's due to having a hollow crank. Can this be quietened?

Anyway, in the recent past I've owned a 1996 1.6 8v Vitara and was very impressed with the engine (and comfort etc.) and was wondering what it would take to fit the 1.6 engine into my Samurai? I’m fairly handy with tools and fixing things but not that good at fabricating.

Can anyone provide advise on what this conversion entails, such as parts required and anything I need to do to make the engine fit and run?

Many thanks in advance.
