I read your post. I read every post you put in here
and 95% of them are asking questions that you can get answers for by doing a search. Obviously you just don't feel like taking the time to find the answers first and expect other people to do the work for you.
last week you posted a question about diagnosing what was wrong with the motor in a sami you got. You were told where to get a copy of the service manual which conatins answers to the questions you asked. The NEXT DAY you came in and asked more questions about the same thing. Did you get the manual and read it or did you just expect people to hand you your answers on a silver platter?
Back in September you posted three questions about what wheels fit your samurai. If you did a search on that topic you would have gotten all the answers you wanted, its been covered hundreds of times.
You posted a question asking about if there were any snorkle posts. Did you search first? No. You asked what its like to do a body lift, if anyone used a certain winch, does anyone have any longer bolts, whats the difference in tire sizes, what's a clicky starter fix, I need a hood (hint: try the FOR SALE SECTION), how do you remove fender flares, whats the gear reduction in Tcase gears and the list goes on.
They'e all perfectly good questions, but they had al already been answered. USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION. You will eventually run out of people polite enough to answer your questions because you are too LAZY to find the answers yourself.
I have never done a 1.6 swap into or out of a samurai. I am interested in the topic, though. It is my understanding that some of the kits available require you to drill out holes in the transmission and some do not. I'm guessing, but it seems like if the transmission itself has been modded to fit, you might want to leave it with the motor. If not, then it probably doesnt make any difference.
How did I arrive at this opinion since i have zero experience with the topic? I read past posts about the topic, read others opinions and gathered up previously posted info, including going to the various vendors sites to check out their kits and what they involve. If I am not willing to do that leg work first, then why should I expect the people in here to make an effort to help me?
