I have 2 zuki's and had a problem on the one with the 1.3 and the timing belt. If you break a belt is there clearnce for the valves or is the head toast?

A stock 1.3 is a non-interference motor. Snap a belt and no damage.

Cool. Now why can't I get this thing running. I hope that carb isn't junk. I hate webers and it was only on it for 3-4 months. I changed distributers, has spark won't idle or rev smooth.

The weber is a mechanical carb... no computer to compensate for other problems. If everything else isn't perfect it will not run right. Check everything else first before screwing with the carb (plugs, wires, cap & rotor, timing, etc).


{edit - I'm not a Weber guru, that's why I'm researching and trying to learn everything I can before add it to the mix on the new project.)

Did you double check your timing belt marks after the install???

Yes it was running fine at first then started running rough. By the time I got home it wouldn't rev up or idle so I checked to make sure the marks lined up. Looked good. I can get it to start by pumping the h-ll out of it. But have to keep it revved to the moon or it dies. I changed distributers and it does the same thing.

Pull the fuel line off the carb, remove the coil wire and have someone crank the engine. watch the fuel line while it is being cranked, you should see fuel spurting out on every second revolution. If not, you got a bad fuel pump. That sound like the problem.

I may give that a try. This was to be a parts sami. But I put a timing belt and new weber on it drove it for about 3 months. Now it is just sitting there.

I wouldn't mind using it for a work car again this summer.

i think the revin it in mine just kept all the oils and bearings kinda hot. cuz that was the only way it wouldnt snap the timing belt.

Well I had some time and came back to this beast. Well I overlooked the easiest thing and should in roll in idiots 101. The carb adapter came loose. Guess what I will be driving to work again.

It still has 170 lbs of compresion per cylinder. I couldn't beleave that.
