GTI Hybrid Question

I am currently working on putting togather a a gti hybrid engine(gti bottom end with sohc sami head) My question is I want to run the gti accessorys so I would have to run the timing sprocket off the gti which won't work with sami cam sprocket. The square teeth don't work so well round teeth. Can I use a cam sprocket off 1.6L or another suzuki engine to make this engine work? Any ideas or comments are appriated.

Re: GTI Hybrid Question

Re: GTI Hybrid Question

Dave has a good suggestion there. But to answer your Q, the Gti cam sprockets bolt straight on. (Vitara too I believe. )But are 25 mm. wide ( as is the Gti crank sprocket ) and your 19mm belt will walk forward and cut through your plastic cover. (ask me how I know.) If you can get a 25 mm. belt with 89 round teeth you should be right .
These belts were found on the very late model coilies. (Damn)

If you fit a lipped tensioner wheel with the 19 mm. belt it will work. Get an engineer type to press a lipped wheel onto your tensioner wheel.
I did this, it gives you a bit more adjustment if you get it a few mm. larger diameter.

Or do what Dave says.

Re: GTI Hybrid Question

dave has a great idea actually. i have a large pile of blown to $hit 1300 engines to rob crank sprockets from to practice on to make sure it get done perfectly. i know i have a spare gti harmonic balancer some where in my garage that you can have too...just gotta find it.
