I bought and have been working on my 87 sammi for two weeks, It has never
had good power, The carb was all messed up so I rebuilt it , It helped the lowend but anything over 1/2 throttle it would fall on its face (sputter and miss.) Alot of things where screwed with on this rig(Bad Mech)I am a shadetree
mech with 20 years experiance and this was kicking my butt. I was convinced
the carb was bad as everone has problems with them, The secondary would never open,(If open manually it would rev up.) I pulled the timing belt cover this afternoon, and low and behold the cam timing appears to be off 180 degrees.
This is per the Haynes manual, (Ordering the suzi one this week.) According
to the book the timing mark should be up on both the crank and the cam @ TDC
for #1 cyl (distrib In the correct possition) the index mark for the cam is DOWN! So it would lead off with cyl #4 instead.
I need verification that the cam is off. Would someone who has done this
or has the Suzuki shop man please verify the position of the indexing marks?
Oh and I bought a new carb to the tune of $250.00 Joy..
