    Default info about my Mikuni carb (1981 L100, 2G23 Vulcan 550cc)

    Hi All,

    I have a 1981 L100 with the 2G23 engine `Vulcan, 2 cyl 550cc powerhouse. As i understand it the L100 is an export version of the minicab. I bought mine in Chile (im now in Brazil after more than 10,000kms of the Los Andes mountains and amazon jungle mud).

    My carb is refusing to co-operate and im looking for a rebuild kit plus info. But firstly... the carb has NO part number or model number on it. Ive rebuilt it several times and have scanned every possible surface but found nothing.

    Thought id try my luck here. Does anyone know anything that could help.

    Much appreciated.


    Cheers,
    Mike

    Ive tried looking on the net for mikuni info using `5 27, 257, 527 etc etc but nothing.

    Does someone know more about how this arrangement is a model number??!!


    thanks.

    Is the L100 also known as a "Jimny" or "Jimmy"? Is it a Suzuki 2-stroke engine?

    If so, I may know of someone who has some knowledge of these engines, maybe a contact for parts.

    Let me know, maybe I can hook you up with him.

    Take care--Chris

    Thanks Chris.

    Some of the little information i can find out about the Mitsubishi L100 is that it shares the same 2 cyl overhead cam engine as the minicab, minica and a couple mazdas from the early 80s.

    The vulcan engine (2G2) precedes the 3G8 three-cylinder series.


    Cheers,

    Mike

    They made a 2cylinder version on the minicab in Taiwan.

    You should take a photo and post it up. PM me if you want to email it to me and I'll post it for you.

    I think you might want to consider a substitute someday. Something that will do the same job but is more common in your area.

    Hasan,

    In the middle of the amazon one of my front wheel ball joints completely popped off!!! that was quite a situation... eventually we had a temporary solution which was to use a 4 inch bolt with a series of washers insted!!

    The closest city didnt have a replacement. So i took the ball joint to an engineers workshop (torneria), a workshop with welding and lathes etc. Its an easy job to re-fabricate it. Ive travelled 1500 kms after with no problems.

    You can also buy the balljoint from a mitsubishi l200 (used from wreckers if you dont have cash). It has the same dimensions except for the shaft which is about 1mm thicker. so it wont enter properly. but you can take an angle grinder and shave off some metal! This is how i solved the second ball joint that popped off!!


    Thanks 3banger, good to know. I would love a 4x4!!
