Gen 2 Montero / Re: Transfer Case Issues

Was out driving today and happened to try putting the T-Case into 4wd. When it is in any of the 4wd modes the T-Case slips. Everything is fine in 2wd, but in 4wd I get little to no power to the ground...  Going to investigate some more hopefully tomorrow. Any thoughts on where I should start.

What year is your Montero?

I would say it shifts positively into gear.  I am out of town for the holiday but will dig into it more next week.  Start with the simple stuff: fluid, linkages etc...

Does anyone have a good layout of what the internals look like in these things?  I have not seen inside the Mitsu T-cases before.

Does your transfer case shift "positively" into each position or is the shift lever sloppy?

Adventure Reports / Wrong turn - Around Africa in a Shorty
« Last post by cruisn on June 20, 2019, 12:36:34 PM »
Good evening,

As some of you know I started building a 07 NS shorty wagon for a weekend warrior, and as usual I have a blow out. anyways, why not actually use it as it was intended, like going around Africa.

In January I put the little beast in a container and headed to work in the DRC, end of march it finally arrived in Maputo.

Ill try to keep the writing to a minimum and let the pictures tell the story.

The ship leaving port while I enjoyed the process of getting it out. I shipped to maputo to avoid a carnet, basically you mention carnet in OZ and people try to charge bulk coin for any paper work.

We had a short deadline this time so we only headed north of Maputo about 60kms to a place called Lugar De Cel, stunning place. and had it to ourselves. the managers were great.

The Block and Heads are the same , you would need to swap over the intake side and oil pan, plus all the accesories

If you are pulling the engine at a yard save some money and just take the bare block with heads attached (short block)

While you're in there, just preemptively replace every seal and gasket on the entire motor outside of the head gaskets.  Small engine bay = great attack angle = nearly everything is an enormous pain in the ass to replace if it's leaking vs its contemporaries.

+1 to consider just pulling the motor.

While you've got it apart to do the valve stem seals it makes sense to replace the valve lifters with the updated units that have the larger 3mm oil hole. Lifter tick is common to lots of Mitsu engines and if you don't have it yet you likely will in the future.

Also, it's recommended to use OEM parts (Aisin) for the timing belt tensioner and water pump, as aftermarket parts have remarkably high rates of premature failure.
