I finally got some pics of the new samurai project. This is what I bought for $800.00.
Here are some of the specs
</nobr> 3.8L, owner bought alot of the mounts, water pump, and pulleys from <nobr>suzuki
</nobr> lightening conversions. He didn't buy a carb because he couldnt figure out how to run the stock motors electric carb. I bought a holley 4412 500CFm rebuilt off ebay for $100.00 with an electric choke
The tranny is an SM420 with a new clutch, flywheel etc,,,,
electric fan is on and wired. It has a 3 core radiator as well.
The body is in good condition, overall. The front passenger corner has faded alot and the hood has a good dent in it. But no rust anywhere!
It has stock zuk axles with the exception of being SPOA and 4.56 gears. I am going to run the stock transfer case. Adding a spool to the rear and a lockright for the front. I run mostly mud and sand so I think the stock axles will survive for awhile. I dont mind breaking a shaft sometimes cause they are cheap. If/when I break a ring and pinion I will replace them with yota's and go further with mods like stretching the wheel base etc.
Anyway thought I'd share with you guys the begining of a new project!
Sorry I forgot I bought a toyota mini truck hydraulic clutch set-up off ebay for $5.50, a toyota clutch and brake pedal set-up for $13.00. I am adapting those to the tranny and the zuk. I just didnt think the stock zuk cable would hold up to the heavier clutch of the sm420.
I also bought some $F-250 shock mounts for the front for like $10.00, again off ebay, I'll make my own upper shock mounts for the rear.
