GeoMetroMotor

I've seen occasional posts about using the Swift 1.3 liter engines in Sami's. What about Metro's?
I was under the impression that the Metro and Swift were one and the same, true?
I have the chance to pick up a '98 of '99 metro thats been rolled, and need something to put in a stock '86 Samuria with 150K miles on its 1.3.
So will the Metro motor work and is there anything else on a Metro worth having?
Thanks, Al

<font face="Comic Sans MS">I was always under the understanding that a Geo Metro utilized a 1.0L 3 cylinder engine? Did it have an optional bigger engine? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>

Re: GeoMetroMotor

you will have to use a Zuki head, but the 1298 block will work...

the seats are nice too...

Re: GeoMetroMotor

There were 3 and 4 cyl models. The 4 cyl will take the Samurai 1.3 head. I was under the impression it was a 1298cc, but I haven't really looked at them in awhile so I could be mistaken. Details... SIGH...

Re: GeoMetroMotor

The only 4cyl in Canada were the 4drs but the Swifts came with the 4cyl. in all models. The Samurai from 1985-mid 1988 1324c.c. engine 1988 1/2 to present 1298c.c I heard you can use the front wheel cyl. head in a Samurai as long as you have an electric fuel pump as the only difference is the cam shaft and distributor ,so if you swap that stuff you don't have to tear down a clean tight motor.Don't forget to swap the Sammy flywheel the FWD one is much lighter and you would rev better but would stall and not chug along at low speed 4 wheeling as good. Just my experience.

Re: GeoMetroMotor

Hawk Suzuki was talking about doing this swap a while ago. You might check with them for info. The Metro seats are nice but the
base requires some modification to go in a Samurai.
