Montero Sport / Re: Daystar Coil Spacers
« on: May 17, 2019, 07:29:31 AM »
 PA_JERO has some for sale

 For what it's worth, Sports are a cheaper build and assembled in a lesser factory. Having said that, a lot of the Sport 3rd members i've taken apart had too much preload on the pinion bearing and have a roasted pinion bearing (still working) dropping shavings into the diff. It's sort of a good idea to take the things apart and reassemble them into a Montero 3rd.

 The trailing arms are different but i'm not sure it matters. I have both, maybe i can measure for you and tell you for sure.

 Another solid gold post.

Gen 1 Montero / Re: Lower ball joints on a SWB
« on: March 21, 2019, 01:38:38 PM »
 Lower balljoints are bolt on, very easy and no removal of the torsion bar is needed nor for the upper. they support most of the weight and go bad quickly, highly recommend not cheaping out on the lowers. OEM then 555's and the rest are a crap shoot. Moog gives you whatever they bought from anyone else, sometimes good sometimes bad. Uppers are pressed in and also not bad to do, just be sure to dig the snap rings out before pressing.

 If you are running small tires and not wheeling you'll get away with aftermarket for a year or so on the lowers, the uppers basically last forever.

I have Tokico Trekmasters on mine, can't report on longevity but i liked them. They were really inexpensive too.

Gen 2 Montero / Re: 3.15 Gear Install - Questions

 I always recommend getting a donor T-case, if you're in Az I've got a few of you want one. That snap ring is a real cunt to source, a couple guys had them shoot off into space. If you know Offroader (Ray) i think he had to find one, my install went perfect so I'm not much help other than the gears install together otherwise they don't slide into their bores.

 Yeah, the new one comes with switches, knobs and new cables.

Here is a $30 Chinese one, I went OEM.

 My dealer offered me an aluminum core too, which bummed me out. Probably be alright if you use quality antifreeze designed for aluminum radiators. The HVAC controllers are at the age of failure and they need the dash off to be replaced, same for the center and side vents. The controller is $120 at the dealer but i imagine the Chinese ones are decent enough.

The '94 core fits the '99, also found out the Mitsu ones are brass but commonly replaced with aluminum cores. The aluminum cores don't last as long and typically the brass cores leak at the hose. The air bag code needs to be cleared with a MUT2 or equivalent, it's not a terrible job. About 4 hours down and up, i recommend you buy an HVAC controller and vents to go along with the job.

I should start rebuilding parts for you guys since side work seems to be impossible for me now.

100 is stamped into the inner and outer cups, also on OEM boots. NTN 100 is typically what it says, sometimes CV 100. The 94-98 Montero with 3.5 or any Gen 2 with manual trans could be holding some never been used CV's in the salvage yard.

Gen 2 Montero / Re: Gen 2 Engine Swaps - Knowledge Dump
« on: February 22, 2019, 12:14:07 PM »
 They used to be basically free around here, myself and others here in Az have seriously scrapped complete running engines in the past because nobody needed/wanted them. The 12v engine is so robust to begin with none of us ever saw a shortage coming. This past year I've seen 3 of these engines go down hard with connecting rod failures, up until recently I've always thought these things just never broke down. Probably a fluke but you know how it is, things are abundant until you need one.
 The 3.5 and 3.8 are more common, i could have swapped one of those but this car just fits my needs and just happens to be able to make the Gen 1 really fun when I'm done with the LS.

Autos have trans preheater/coolers in the lower tanks.

4 cylinders are 3 row low efficiency cores and have the lower outlet on the passenger side (like the diesel)

6 cylinders are 2 row high efficiency cores with both outlets on the driver side.

 Not sure what they mean by HD but all the 87's should be 3 row because of the lack of V6's back then.
