Re: Carbed 1.6 16v?

There was a thread on here a while back about an adapter being made to use an 8v intake manifold on a 16v head, so you could use a carb on a 16v motor.

Nothing really came of it, though. I was interested, as it would allow me to dump in a 16v longblock without having to change the wiring harness and worrying about OBD II.

Re: Carbed 1.6 16v?

Suzuki did this mod, the early European Swifts had a carb'd 1.6L 16V motor (115bhp too [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]). Also a guy in the UK has fitted a sidedraught SU carb to a Swift injection manifold (the 1.6L same as the Track/Kick). Have a look on the Difflock Suzuki forum

Re: Carbed 1.6 16v?

Isn't there a problem with the distributer rotating the wrong way or something? If so, couldn't you just switch the plug wires?

Re: Carbed 1.6 16v?

Would it matter, since you'd be switching in the 16v dizzy as well? You'd just be plugging in to the existing coil...

Re: Carbed 1.6 16v?

On the Swift head the distributor comes straight out so it would interfere with the firewall. You can use a 90 degree adapter but I believe the Swift intake manifold will bolt up to a Sidekick head. I would have thought that the main problem would be sourcing the Swift manifold as the dollar is not very strong at the moment. Looking at the pics on Difflock the manifold it seems a 90 degree adapter has been used to fit the sidedraught carb. Maybe Sarge could come up with an adapter plate to fit a Weber? Has anyone got a pic of a standard manifold?

other thread http://bbs.off-road.com/ubbthreads/showf...rue#Post1362742

from the looks of the above pix he is running an adapter look closely and you can see a flat plate about 1/8 inch between the intake and the head

here is a pix of the 16v and 8v gaskets note the lump for the injectors all that is needed is a plate to block it off.

Re: Carbed 1.6 16v?

The plate has been fiited to block off the now redundant injector holes. Looking at that pic it would be pretty simple to fit an 8V manifold with a similar plate. There were a lot of carb'd Track/Kicks (Vitaras) sold over here and the Sammi Weber conversion fits right on. You could probably bolt or weld an adapter plate to a TBI manifold but the carb manifold already has the correct shape hole, its really just an opened out Sammi manifold.
