Gen 2 Montero / Re: Gen 2 suspension questions
« on: August 20, 2020, 12:36:13 PM »
if you 'mostly' drive on rubble roads, dirt and gravel roads, washboards and field type environment and you -do not- carry large hitch or cargo loads; the 5100 will be the best possible ride for that type of use.

If you carry a lot of equipment, tools, gear or anything above 400lbs of cargo, the 4600 are more tuned for your use but wont be as soft and comfortable of a ride on the rubble and washboards. 4600's have been experiencing stock-out situations though, so check with your suppliers. Stateside we are back ordered on 4600's til October, and that's for orders placed today.

The deciding factor between the two shocks tends to be the traveling load, if loaded down the suspension will naturally cycle more with a softer shock.

Hello and welcome! The Chilton should have covered the engine pull locations. One is on the front passenger corner near the power steering pump and the other is on the driver side bracket from the cylinder head to the intake manifold. More detailed information, including the use of special tools, is outlined in the factory service manual provided for free by fellow enthusiasts, check this link out:

Wish you luck! its a pretty easy job, just takes patience.

Ah gotcha, you're talking external engine parts, i meant just the engine itself, block, head, pump.

Transfer all your accessories and pulleys etc over from the Montero, motor mounts are similar, if not the same between the truck and van, either way their mounting points are identical on the block, so you're headed down the right path on buying montero mounts, ive found the mounts to be the same in appearance for most the RWD 4 cyl engines, diesel, astron, sirius, from 1.6 up to 2.6, if bolted in the RWD configuration, it seems to just use the two bolt lower with stud upper, flat mount.

It's the same engine, it's just manufactured by a different company, the designs are licensed from Mitsubishi and produced by Hyundai, for your purposes, treat it like it's a 4d56 made by hyundai, because it is.

This is an information dump regarding the engine swap I recently preformed on my 1999 Montero (3.5 SOHC, automatic)

The engine swapped into this 99 Montero is from an 04 Galant, it was originally a front-wheel-drive transverse mounted engine. Changes need to be made in order to use this engine longitudinally. I will attempt to cover these changes in the information below. This thread will evolve and this first post will be more updated as time goes.

Previous discussions on various forms of 3.8 engine swaps can be found here. While that thread is a great source of knowledge, it covers a lot of variations of engines and chassis applications which can bog you down with data. Since the 97-99 chassis is so commonly swapped, this thread is dedicated to that specific swap.

This thread will cover installing a 3.8 fwd engine into the 97-00 Montero chassis. The 3.8 engine is the same deck height, the larger displacement is achieved with a longer throw crank and different pistons. The cylinder heads on the 3.8 also have larger valves and larger bowls. Mechanically you're just doing an air displacement upgrade.

This swap was started with a 2004 3.8 engine, stripped down to just the long block, using the 3.8 cams and practically everything else from the 3.5.

Here's a list of hardware I swapped over.

-valve covers from 3.5 (3.8 had coil on plug, not this time around)
-driver side 3.5 rear cam plug, 3.8 had a cam sensor on the 'rear' of the driverside head, removed along with the flywheel, replaced with oem plug
-driver side 3.5 cam gear and timing flywheel for the 3.5 style cam sensor (passenger cam gear on the 3.8 is the same as the 3.5)
-Timing shields that bolt to the heads, no mods needed
-3.5 crank sprocket and timing flywheel
-3.5 crank and cam sensors
-timing covers from the 3.5, bank 2 needed a small notch cut in it using a dremel.
-lower intake plenum from 3.5
-fuel rail and injectors from 3.5, the injectors are lower flow rate than the 3.8, so you may need to run premium fuel, havent verified lower octane works yet but mine works on premium fuel. (15,000 miles of use later, premium yields great results)
-3.5 water pump assembly and water plumping, rear cross over tube, 1" valley tube, 2" upper return tube and thermostat housing from the 3.5
-Oil pump from 3.5, this sets the timing tensioner angle, be careful when buying new as many companies sell the wrong pump with incorrect cooler mounting orientation, i re-used my oem one since it was in spec still
-3.5 timing tensioner arm, hydro tensioner, tensioner pulley and idler pulley with spacer
-3.5 oil pan, two holes will need to be drilled in the block, its easy and will be covered with photos
-3.5 engine to trans plate and flex plate
-3.5 engine mount brackets, some bolts line up, some dont, a little drilling and the making of a small spacer should cover it.

Gen 1 Montero / Re: Re-Installing 5sp transmission

I've always put a jack under the engine and tilted it down to mount the transmissions, but all of my 5 speed mitsu installs have been on RWD vehicles, not 4WD vehicles. What you're suggesting makes it sound like the engine is tilted forward reducing your working space.

also, if you add a 1.75" body lift it makes working so much easier.

Beautiful truck, great score! On the topic of ABS, I've got a 99...

I've had the 4WD fuse blow and cause the ABS light to come on and the 4wd indicator lights to go out.

I've just recently had a passenger side wheel speed sensor fail due to damage, this threw the anti-lock light, but 4wd continued to work and my locker continues to work.

Just posting some of my observations regarding ABS and 4WD

check the 4wd fuse, 10a, under the drivers kick panel

That's pretty much how I run. I like it, I drove eric's on 4600's and prefer mine with the 5100s. I'll take you for a ride in it and let you decide.

Welcome to the forum. The transmission in question only came in wide-block.

Excellent thread man! thanks for posting this.
