thanks guys

on page 3-6 of the manual it list the services not requiring engine removal
i dont see the oil relief valve on there.

Is this oil relief valve an "engine out" job?

i am new to suzuki's but have a fair bit of experience car wise

really appreciated all the help/advice

thanks

Oil relief valve is part of the pump. You can service the oil pump with the engine in situ but it is a bastard of a job that requires removal of the timing belt. If you get that far then you might as well replace the timing belt, tensioner and water pump too. I would recommend compression testing the motor before you start - it might work out better to pluck the motor and rebuild it.



it might work out better to pluck the motor and rebuild it.

yeh just take it out ian it will make things alot easier for you.

its a simple job to take the engine out and then you can go to town on the little f10a, its just a bitch to work on it in the van


good luck with it mate...

ok
bit of an update

just spent the better part of the whole day removing the sump from the f10a

quite a time consuming job due to the coolant pipe in the way and the slant of the engine

as suspected, the oil pickup was almost completely blocked. gave it a quick wire brush on a drill and came up good as new.

now the bad part is there is a lot of metal material in the sump.

im hoping this will at least buy me 5000 km's while i look into rebuild/replacement options

i did spy a cheap 2000 kawasaki zx9 motor for under $500 (needs carbs and clutch basket). 128.6 hp and 69.9ft lbs should make it move along nicely.
the engine is quite compact and the 6 spd sequential box would be a bonus. only problem would be the lack of a reverse gear. im thinking hooking up a starter motor to the tailshaft would give me what i need.

pic of the oil pickup to follow

The culprit.

Years of neglect from previous owners = poor f10a

Starter motor on tail shaft? Usually do it off a ringed disc on the brakes. I think a starter motor would wear out soon on a carry. There about 600kg? Plus the wear on the clutch which is designed for a sub 200kg bike. Alot of work to get it to work.

Hey guys! I know this is an old thread but I’m trying to do a head gasket replacement in my 1990 Suzuki Super Carry. I was told you could do this with the motor in the car but I have no room to remove the last 4 head bolts. I’m no mechanic and this is the first time I’ve ever tried to remove a cylinder head before so any help and advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!

Andy
