    Re: Head Gasket - Jimny

    Same issue with mine.
    Had to have valve seats lapped and head gasket replaced. Suzuki Bryanston charged 20k. Great job. Car has done many km since then with no trouble.

    You have it exactly:
    Two pipes go into the lid of the jar. The one from the bicycle pump only goes in about a centimetre. The other pipe goes from the bottom of the jar up to the gearbox fill hole.

    There are 4 mounts for the engine/gearbox/transfer case as a single unit.

    All 4 are in good condition.

    I've ordered a new U-joint from SKF. Let's hope putting it in will not be too hard.

    Nice to meet you. We can go clunking together. Heh heh.

    Are there many first-series RAVs here on the forum?
