Samurai distributor on LJ 80/81 motor

Post by bluesilver » Fri Aug 18, 2017 3:57 pm

G'Day, I currently have a Suzuki Stockman with the LJ80/81 motor ( F8A 797cc motor )
I seen a post on here where someone installed a Samurai distributor on this motor,
( think it was this motor they was talking about )
Was just trying to find out if if there was a certain type of Samurai distributor that they used, i did find this one on ebay for models 1984 -1990
Electronic Ignition Distributor For Suzuki Jimny Samurai SJ410 SJ413 1.3L G13A
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Electronic-I ... Sw6n5Xq~hE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Is there any noticeable hassles trying to get it to fit or are they pretty much a drop in item.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

That was my write up, here: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=7720&hilit=Samurai+distributor" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It needs to be from a carbureted samurai, very easy swap

Cheers, just trying to find out which years the carburetor models were made from and till.
The ebay listing tells me it as a Electronic Ignition Distributor For Suzuki Jimny Samurai SJ410 SJ413 1.3L G13A
It fits Suzuki Sierra 1324cc from 1984 -1990
Hoping these are the carburetor models.

before this mod my LJ80 barely worked if you had to pee...it hated humidity. After the dist swap you could drive through some pretty deep water with no issues.

Hi, just interested to know if anyone had a part number for these distributors for the samurai,
The one i just ordered of ebay arrived to today and is not even close to fitting.
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Electronic-I ... Sw6n5Xq~hE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
The original one that came out was pretty close to 4 inches long, the one that arrived was around 3.3 inches long.
Bit of a surprise when that arrived.
Any links,, part numbers or information on where to find these samurai distributors would be greatly appreciated.

The link you posted looks like the correct one. Should be for an early carb'ed Samurai, 1986-88.

Yes, i thought it was the one i needed, but when it arrived the shaft is too short.
The part number on it was 33100-60A10 which says it is for the samurai.
So was hoping someone here might be able to tell me what the part number of their distributors are, or even if they have a link to somewhere where they got theirs from.

Any chance anyone has a link to where they got theirs from?
Still no luck in finding any information on the right one,
Just all i know is the one out of the LJ 81 motor ( F8A 797cc motor ) has a 4 inch long shaft and is 1 inch in diameter.
The one of ebay has a 3.2 inch long shaft.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

It was just local for for sale listings. Someone posted samurai parts for sale. Could be off-road sites in the forums.

Since nobody has answered your question yet, I looked under my hood and my "spares" bucket, and found the following numbers on the ID plate for the disty:

33100-83030
100291-0440
