Gen 2 Montero / Considering a Gen 2 again.
« Last post by B.N.Z.MTNS on September 17, 2020, 06:24:58 AM »
Well, itís been a couple years since Iíve been on here since I sold my 95 LS.   Family life happened and we needed cash for some other things, so the toys had to go. However, I am considering another capable rig again and still miss many aspects of the Gen 2 Montero.

I have purposely avoided looking for any because I remember there isnt a huge aftermarket or product support like there is for the other household names (Cherokee, 4Runner,, etc.)... but, then I also remember these are more comfortable and will out perform those other products in stock condition and have many factory do dadĎs not offered by competitors.

 So my big question for this Monteiro/Pajero Subculture isÖ Is there still a solid support group for these rigs? Or have most jumped ship to the newer rigs with more product support?

Iíve got my eyes on a 95 SR with fairly low miles (under 100,000).  It needs a few things like CV boots, unknown of timing has ever been done, plus some general elbow grease to get the thing cleaned up. Iím just wondering if there is still any kind of a following for these?  I donít care about popularity, but I still like to have reliable resources and knowledgeable people out there to consult with as things break or I consider more modifications.

Anyway, thoughts or opinions are welcomed.
Gen 2 Montero / Re: Gen 2 suspension questions
« Last post by IncorpoRatedX 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.

I realize this is an old thread but I'm hoping someone with some firsthand experience can offer some advice. I live in Costa Rica and purchased a 95 Gen2 3.5L not long ago. The suspension is very tired and needs replaced. Pretty much the only suspension kit I can find here is Old Man Emu. So, I think I will go with their springs. But, I would prefer to go with the Bilstein shocks, either the 4600 or 5100. I have read everything I can find on them but just need a bit more clarification.
Many of the roads here are rocky, washboard, rough dirt/gravel roads. And my goal is to be able to drive on them without having to go super slow (as I do now because of the worn suspension. i.e. lots of bounce, very rough). I am leaning towards the 5100's because everything says how soft they are on these types of roads. But I'm afraid they would be too soft and bounce over large bumps. The 4600's also get great reviews. I would lean towards these because I really don't like bounce. How much stiffer are they? Does anyone have experience with the ADD Combo Breaker kit? Or either of these combo's?
For Sale Automotive / 94 SR CV axles for sale

I replaced my 94 SR CV axles when I got my Monty because there was a tear in the driver side outer boot. It had some play in it so I would suggest a CV rebuild. Still has that sought after thick axle though.  Passenger side is in fine condition. They sell as a pair.
Message me with offers, I will update this when it is sold, payment by paypal only.


General Discussion / Crash repair dimensions
« Last post by CharlieN on August 11, 2020, 06:01:04 AM »
Anyone have access to the crash repair books that have the dimensions of Gen 2 frame mounting points?

Gen 3 would be useful as well.
I have bought a book covering Gen 1 so I should have that info soon.
I intend to plot these in CAD so I can understand similarities to help plan future projects.

I just renamed this thread since I now have something to show.

Far from done but it is going to work. Sorry about the color of metal over here, it sure is not as nice as over where you guys are.
Gen 2 Montero / Re: 1995 Montero SR Engine Removal
« Last post by CharlieN on August 07, 2020, 02:11:18 PM »
I would plan on 40+ hours to pull the engine, get the cams out of it, change the seals the reinstall the engine.
Do not get the cam timing wrong.

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.
Gen 2 Montero / 1995 Montero SR Engine Removal
« Last post by Conkled on July 30, 2020, 04:02:07 PM »
Hello!  I purchased and have been driving a 1995 Montero SR for the last two years.   This is my second Montero (my first was a Gen 1).  The vehicle has 165K miles and I've done all of the key maintenance including new timing belt, water pump, hoses, and intake plenum.   The engine runs strong but burns a quart of oil per tank and smokes at idle.   So it appears I need to replace the valve stem seals.  I know it's possible to do this with the engine in the vehicle but have heard it is a PITA.  So I'm planning on pulling the engine to do this job which is something I've never done before.   The removal process is fairly well explained in the Chilton's manual but I'm curious if there are any tricky parts that I need to be aware of, any special tools I need, or anything I should know to make the process go smoother.  Also want to know how long it typically takes and where I should connect the hoist to on the engine or how I should strap it. when raising.    Thanks!
