So. I'm not sure which direction I am gonna go now. I would just be happy to get her running again with an engine swap. I havn't heard many good things about this 1.3 liter.
It runs but a wrist pin has come loose and the rod is beatin around in there pretty bad so if it's gonna be a rebuild then i'm definately gonna have to go .20-.40 over.
I would like the 1.6 8 valve if I can find one. I'm just trying to go the easiest way to get it up and running and me wheelin. The rest I will work on throught the winter.

Any thoughts?

No. Actually a friend from work offered it up.
Thx Tri.
I'll look into it Derek. Found a few other sites as well.

Was gonna pull the motor last nite but got sidetracked at an auction. Maybe get around to it this week. It's gonna have to come out regardless if it's gonna get swapped or rebuilt.

Truck is officially FS. $1000.
Bone stock. Finest example of a samurai as you will find.
Motor is out, just drop in whatever you want. 1.3/1.6, 8valve/1.6 16 valve or have the bottom end on this 1.3 rebuilt. #1 bearing is out.
Figure I would offer it here before I put it up on cl, nc4x4 or gulches.
If you are serious about looking/buying you NEED to come look at this sammy!!

Putting it up in the fs section in the morn.
