I think it does. I might go that route. I'd have to take my 3rd into a gear shop to do shims and whatever.
I have a 93 LS rear with the LSD. It's 9" like the 3.0 M.S.
The spring perches on the 00+ 3.0 M.S. are too narrow for the Montero cast iron trailing arms. BUT I just went to my local yard to check out  an AWD 3.5 2003 M.S. ,,, the perches are 60 mm wide just like my LS. It has the 12 bolt 9.5 4.9 axle, but I think it's open. It had a shiney tape type tag with ratio on it,,,I big letter i didn't think to write down, and a red stamp .
I'd like to put that Non Disconect front pumpkin in, But I'm pretty sure it won't fit - it will make driveshaft hit  clutch slave cyl. I think everybody has put these in 2.5s and maybe Gen 1 s with AT.

A lot of folks seem to be putting 4.9 gears into Gen 2 s, esp.the 2.5.
I want to put whole 9.5 M.S. axle housing in mine.
I don't  have to deal with ABS ring differences, and I think that's why folks swap gears only.
I measured a few years back and can find no reason  It won't fit.
Maybe the angle of the trailing arms  mount is different , maybe not.
Maybe shock mounts are different, maybe not.
Surely someone has tried this by now... Don't let me be the first.
Will It Fit?????

Gen 2 Montero / Re: Pulling a code on a 1992

It should be in FSM and your glove box owners manual.
On my Gen 1 the Maintenance required light means you've reached milage for emmission equipment check... That is not the same as "Check Engine Light"--that's what will give you codes.

Gen 1 Montero / Re: 1994 mitsubishi diamante ES 3.0 12v sohc

That was THE swap to do on a Gen 1 back in the day.
What actually that was back in the day,,, was FrankR ( on 4x4WIRE)used Diamante block for his Supercharger project because it had boses on the block that added strength to block.
The 93-94  Diamante SOHC 6G72 had 10:1 compression and cams are timed to put power band at higher RPM .
I don't no if ECU will work properly.
Good luck and let us know about ECU compliance.
92-98 Hyundai Sonata used the same compression and cams timing as the 89-94 Montero.

sorry for slow reply,
You should follow FSM. Your steering should only have 2" (check specs in FSM) free play. Mine has about 1/2" now. You should have front wheels off ground and engine off when you adjust. Don't over do it. Too tight and steering won't return like it should,,,which would not be safe.

Adjusted box. It only took 1/4 turn of sloted stud. It made a big difference.

Gen 1 Montero / Re: Rear brakes
« on: January 10, 2019, 02:53:16 AM »
 In USA  all Gen 1s got only rear drums.
In USA early Gen 2s  (92-93 in USA) had 9" open (4.62), locker (4.88) , or LSD (4.62)--with disc rear . This is what I put in my Gen 1 3.0 SWB.
As I recall I didn't need Gen 2 drive shaft to get its flange,,,my shaft bolted up.
The 9.5 has a bigger flange on diff. and therefor on driveshaft. You need that driveshaft flange.
All the above used same part number U joint.
The '94 4.63 locker (in USA) had a Giant one year part number U joint and therefore the rarer giant flange on diff..
I stayed with 9" because it is still bullet proof and I prefer LSD for my use and still get the easy maintenance rear disc.
 In USA to add to confusion on  front diff. got low pinion on Gen 1 ( 7.5 on 2.6,,,8" on 3.0) and high on Gen 2 and M. Sports.
M. Sports could have drum  or disc brakes  with 9" or disc 9.5. I'm still trying to figure out M. Sports to see if front diffs will fit into  gen 1.

I prefer to swap whole axle as gear work is beyond my skill set so I'm not sure on axle spline count,,,although I read it on ADD forum somewhere that I can't relocate right now.

Gen 1 Montero / Re: Coolant temp needle position
« on: November 15, 2018, 10:55:26 PM »
I picked up  an ifared reader gun from NAPA last spring. Tried to take readings and everything seems too cool.  I was blaming my cheap ass plastic aluminum radiator for being too  effiecient. Its probably my  jinxed skills with anything electronic and I'm not using it right.

I seem to have a little play,, or maybe  it is just more power. I think ratio is the same. I think I may need to turn the sloted bolt 1/2 turn. I'll wait untill it's  seals have soaked up some of its new ATF for awhile. Last time I adjusted my box it started leaking.
Yes this box is impressivly H.D. Even stock box is H.D. but I had to walk to town and buy 32 mm socket for the Pitman arm. I've never needed one that big before.
I'd like to get a 90-94  LS steering pump for it. There's some difference.

no,,,my camera died a while back. I am very computer chalenged. I could never get a photo up on the WIRE, can barelydo FB photos and not sure yet how to work this forum.
It was really fairly simple . My biggest worry was messing up the holes, liketaking too much metal . The metal was much softer and easier to work than I expected it to be. The rat tail file really worked well. I didn't realizethat the frame holes would act as a drill guide untill I got it bolted on.
I was unsure of the O rings on steel lines and took my time trying to figure out.
I have to take time be carefull on my truck as it is my only vehicle and I live in a rural area, I've screwed up and been stranded in the past.

Just took a test drive late last night.
No leaks and I figure I got all the air out of system. Just a few things to tighty  up.
The SR steel tubes bolted into Gen one without bending.
Slightly differnt curves in return pipe hose,,trimmed a few inchesoff and route will do for now. Eventually I'll by sttel/hosereturn line from Rockauto for a 91.
The Gen 2 high pressure steel line bolts just about perfect to Gen 1 pump hose. That line is probably still available from dealer (only) MB636510.
A tip for those doing this mod:
Mount box at 2 lower bolt holes.
I removed radiator to keep from risking damage,
( plus one box bolt won't pull out without lifting radiator anyway). I don't have AC to get in my way either.
With Radiator out you can run a big drill with a  25/64  bit to give a straighter shot on drill 2 top hole out.Then finish up with a fat rat tail file.
Shout out to Dan A for making me aware Gen 2 idler arm I was running did not match my Gen 1 pitman and was affecting my alignment during  on curves,,,my tires thank you.

Thanks for telling me about Amayama Phil.
I got my parts from Japan in only 9 days.
That place is great.
The shipping was by Japan postal service and was very fair. The price for parts was lower than dealer in USA.
I had to sign on delivery but there was no customs charge. Unless Uncle Sam comes afer me later, there was not big problem or big charge.
Now I can properly finish my Gen 2 axle into SWB Gen 1 ( installed axle 9 years ago).

Looking a pictures of parts on Rockauto I can see that after '89 the line design changed, and from then on it requires O ring.
84-89-  SWB and LWB got the same box.
90 and 91 LWB got a beefier box (still not as big as Gen 2) and O ring lines.
I  got alittle work done today. Pulled steel lines off '89.
I'll install SR lines , , One good thing is '89 hose will connect to '94 steel line.
I don't know what kinds of O- rings to use....???

saga continues...
Got a e refund from CherryHill Mitsu... part discontinued.

Amayama  says that Mitsu Japan says they have them.
I still don't understand the Customs duty thing. When and where and how to pay it.

wish me luck,,,

Cherry Hill in N.J. let me enter the numbers and make the order.
Hope I don't get that familiar notice of part no longer available.
I really don't understand how this company let me enter number and others say _ "part not found".
Keeping my finger crossed. The price was much lower than I expected,,, hum,,, trying not to be negative.
