86 Sami Build

here's my 86 stretched Sami 1.3L Carbed, YJ leaf conversion, and custom rear toy driveshaft. At this point, the short term goal is to get the motor running, as it was basically disconnected, transmission and transfer case were taken out as well as some other odds and ends. This build is MY build, with help when needed. I don't want someone else building MY rig, I want to know everything I can about it.

Before She Came Home With Me






The Inspection Upon Bringing It Home







From The Front, Looking To The Rear


From The Rear, Looking To The Front



Inside Mess

New Wires & Plugs - Beginning of Vacuum Line Reconnecting

Rebuilt The Starter Myself & Installed

Installed The Rear Driveshaft

Installed The Front Driveshaft


The Front Shaft U-Joint (Not liking the look of it)

I wish it were done. I'm working two more weeks of evenings so working on it is limited for the next couple weeks...

It was a friend of mine's who has a bunch of projects on the go. This was one of the original Sami's up eagle in the early 90s, and now needs some lovin to get her back in bitchin condition. Eventually she will have a v8 pushin her around.

The pitch on your double cardon for the rear drive shaft seems kind steep. And, for the vacuum lines, just change the carb, bypass the computer and take out almost all of the vacuum lines. Sweet little ride though.

Thank you, I know she doesn't look all that good right now, but she'll get there. I put the shafts in to see for myself what the angles, and what kind of issues I was taking on. I'm planning on taking the angle finder to it, then more than likely lowering a bit to hopefully fix the issue. I'll probably end up getting a new front driveshaft somewhere along the way, maybe a double cardan joint as well?

Oh, she looks good, I see the potential. Small wheel base like that. Pretty much and atv, with a heater and a stereo. Your front driveshaft looked fine. Make sure you keep this updated, be awesome to watch it come together.
