So, altogether I have collected 5 360cc's toys in my garage, namely Daihatsu S38P, Honda TN7, Daihatsu Fellowmax, Honda Life, and lastly Suzuki Fronte. Anyway, I am still eager to get another one ... that is Subaru Rex ..

Does anybody know whether the Fronte's 360cc 2 stroke 3 cyl engine can be replaced by Carry's 550cc 2-stroke 3 cyl one? What are differences of the two? Thank you

Hello pomphy, I thinking it is possible. My LC50 has a 475 cc engineering and is besides the engine size identical to the LC 10 with 360. I use the Parys and instruction manualen of the smaller engine. I Hope this any help. Why changing the engine? Is the original broken? If so I know spare engine to find.

Thanks for the info on wheel caps, but actually I have already replaces (again) the rims, using an ST20 type, that is 2 pieces rims. So I think it must be special wheel caps on it (like vespa scooter maybe)

Oh ya, cpould you tell me the exact location of engine and chassis number of the car? Thank you.

The somewhat later Fronte 7-S (SS20) used the T5A engine, which was a rear-engined version of the LJ50 used in the Carrys. I do not know how serious the differences are though. The SS20 was just a widened version of the LC20, and was also marketed with Daihatsu's 2-cylinder four-stroke 547cc engine (AB).


A friend of mine told me that even the difference of LC20 360cc) and LC50 (550cc) is only on cylinder block and head, every part is totally similar. But to be frank I am not sure about this.

@Skunk: You are 100% correct. One addition I believe the early engine LC20/50 is aircooled later engines from the 70ties eare watercooled

mine is a watercooled, rear engine ... And the designer was totally funny: radiator and engine is connected by 2 pcs long hose pipes from front to rear ... furthermore, no fan is fitted on it, so the radiator is only relied on front wind ....

BTW: @Cappo: I need to know the location of engine and chassis numbers of the car as I have to register this car to the police authority, asap. tq

@phompy: I have four old Suzukis but all have different locations of chassis numbers. I will upload photos with the locations tomorrow. My garage is situated 40 km away from my home. Sorry for the delay.

The technical description you gave, it sounds that my SC100GX has the same blueprint. Engine in the rear and cooling in the front. This car has THE chassis number on the passengerside inside the car. Please check the bottom of corner of the wheelarch and sill under the door.

Photos Will come tomorrow to guide you.

Oh, and congrats Pomphy on the lovely vehicle (I forgot to say that already). Do you intend to keep it that eye-searing color or are you thinking about something more in keeping with the period?


Thanks Skunk, but I found this car with this colour already painted on it. I haven't think yet to change it but I like this colour as it is more trendy, hemmmm ...

To be frank, I have to finish the project first because several homeworks have to be done, mainly on the engine (too much smoke !), its exterior (window channel, window chrome list, etc), and police registration (it so costly).

@Pomphy,
I checked my photolibrary and found the right photos of a LC20 being restored. The location of the chassisnumber is exact of a LC10/50. A small square plate with the number is situated on the left front horizontal site of the luggage compartment. Goodluck locating. :wink: I will make a photo of the location of the lC10/50 anyway.

The engine number is a bit more difficult to see. When rebuilding the engine I found a small flat numberplate on the engine. On the photo it is somewhere in the middle. This is hardly visible when the engine is in the car because of the airflow cover. This is fitted over the engine.

@skunk: The Dutch distributor BV Nimag sells Suzuki and also Morgan & TVR. I traded in one of my Suzuki Cappuccinos. I Just wanted something with more style and performance :wink:
