So towards the end of last year I decided I was going to sell either my swift or my move as I needed to move house and move into a house with less garage space and parking space.
So the move sold and I kept and regoed the swift for 12 months.
I ended up some how receiving an L200 which will get its own build thread and just recently The Mrs and I got a YRV for a cheap price.
I originally looked at it as a cheap 1.3 k3ve power plant until I saw pictures and took it for a test drive.
It does have a few little issues like using oil as many neglected k3 engines do but not as bad as some of them and the synchro’s in 2nd are pretty stuffed so unless you granny shift really carefully it crunches.
We decided to grab it and are currently getting the few bits and pieces we are needing to put it through a RWC and some other bits that are needed too.
The plans for this is to put it on the road and put 12 months rego and see how it goes and put my swift on classic rego as there is no way we could afford 3 rego’s.
ok the parts We have had to get so far are.
Tyres - We got some toyota prius mags with great tread and have just finished putting those on.
tail light and brake globes as well as parker’s
Rear wiper arm and refill for it - 2005 suzuki swift one fit no probs
We also have a glovebox on the way as our latch wasnt working and it wouldn’t close.
The only other thing I need to do is give the engine bay a clean. It hasnt got any leaks but its rather filthy.
I will give it a proper service and seafoam etc to try to clean up some of the engine etc after rwc and rego as It runs ok and isnt smokey and would hate to make it smokey and terrible going into a rwc…
Ok here is the pics
and after the prius wheels have been put on.
