Re: suzi the psychic rascott 10/17/21 03:36 AM
suzitoo took me into the sierras last month, on a shakedown run.
went to the shaver/huntington area, and was amazed by what that fire last year did.
suzi worked fine climbing out of the valley, and she got me home.
i only put it in 4wd once, and that was for a poser for toasty.
[Linked Image from hosting.photobucket.com]

mostly just imagining some "fitting out" things, and i need a spare tire to cram into the back.
some rocker protection and a rear bumper should be in the plan somewhere,
and mabe a small rack, so she can carry morestuff.
gonna mount the spare gas on the tail, and probably h2o also.
the lotus is receiving needed attention.
looking forward

Re: Surging on acceleration. Trailmonkey 10/12/21 11:34 PM
I think I may have the wrong or bad water temp sensor.
Runs awesome when first started and warms up, but after everything heat soaks (30 min or driving) it lacks power and seems to heat the exhaust up as the temp gauge stays normal.

Reading how the ecu changes the a/f ratio as the temp goes up, could it be like the choke it stuck on a carburetor engine ?
Or more likely the air valve under the TB the water lines go to ?
I've unplugged the other air valve and nothing changes.

Seems I've got it just about right but when actually driving it longer I still have this problem.

I assume the JB-Weld and or block off plate for the TB is what I'm going to try.
Been talked about before but I "think" the block off plate for the car will fit the montero ?

Also.. could I splice in a rheostat into the water temperature sensor and tell the ecu what I want and what runs the best at the time ? I don't think I got the right sensor, same plug but could be a different ohm ..
Factory supposed to be 2.5k cold and 290 hot.. from what my manual says.

Awesome, thanks oldcolt! not many of these around looks like. I ordered the last one on rockauto. $6.90.USD. By the time it's shipped to my side of the border it costs $26.61 Canadian. Can't wait for the border to open up!

Re: Troubleshooting super select 4x4 lights motero 10/07/21 06:58 PM
super select is fun... i fixed mine by jacking up the hole car, and testing and retesting the switches. i got them to work by buying cheap switches, and taking off the washers and putting them in with thread sealent.

my monty is a 3rd gen and has the electric super select and the 5speed automatic transmission, so there was no way to shift it manually without taking the actuator motor apart

i put a paper i found super useful in troubleshooting mine

looking for donut gasket 87CanadianRaider 10/07/21 06:41 PM
I'd post a picture, but I've been on here for years and still don't do it right.
I just redid my exhaust from the manifold back but cannot find the proper gasket for where the Y-pipe meets the Cat. there is a spring bolt connection there. Manual doesn't show one, but the manual also doesn't show the donut gasket at the back either that I know is there.

I might have to send the parts guy for a hunt for something close.

Re: Rear defroster timer removal. Trailmonkey 10/06/21 05:17 PM
I hooked the light up just to see that it worked, would be nice if it doesn't have a timer. But 10 minutes wouldn't be so bad, I'll test it and see if it even has one.

I will end up running a heavy gauge power wire to the back at some point for a power station, will tie into that then anyways.

Thanks.

You ever get that MivTech or what ever it was finished and wired up ?

Re: Rear defroster timer removal. OldColt 10/06/21 11:27 AM
88 Montero has no timer.
My later gen1 books found a new home and never came back.

Gen 2
The timer allows 9-11 minutes of operation, Might be a logical amount of time to hook up?

So no true answer for your need but if it has a timer it might not ruin the evening.

Rear defroster timer removal. Trailmonkey 10/05/21 05:11 PM
I have my rear window defroster unhooked, want to use that power wire for a small LED light so I can see to hook up a trailer or extra backup light. But I take it there is a timer on this circuit, where exactly is that located and can I just bypass it ? The light is a lower power than the defroster so I'm good on that.
I take it, it's under the dash on the passenger side.

Re: Surging on acceleration. Trailmonkey 10/03/21 07:13 PM
Found out it was the wire from the O2 sensor plug up beside the transmission, and a bad coolant temp sensor.

Wire fixed the bad stumble but it ran awesome till it warmed up, ran like crap and engine bay was hot, new coolant temp sensor and it runs very nice now..

Re: Different manual transmission for the 3.0L 6G72? OldColt 10/03/21 07:43 AM
That is one of the last persons I would trust. Vivid racing has nothing for these vehicles.
You really need to have a valid analysis of what is wrong and from what I read here, trust your instincts.
The only aspect of that transmission I am aware of having a problem is fasteners loosening on the rear mainshaft bearing retainer. Allows the mainshaft to move fore-aft with throttle changes in all but 4th gear.

If your transmission shifts well, do not break it.
If it has a bearing problem, that will be different in each gear and differing throttle.

A clutch release bearing, noise generally changes with foot on or off.

I would not pay thousands if it is just a $20 TO bearing.

The real decision for clutch work, pull the engine or the transmission. I think the engine is easier on that rig.
That transmission/Tcase is fargging heavy and does not want to sit on a jack. Because of the Tbar crossmember the trans needs to come forward.

Re: Different manual transmission for the 3.0L 6G72? BrooklynOpus 10/02/21 12:17 PM
Hey Charlie,

I am convinced I have a clutch problem.
Tranny guy is convinced I have a tranny problem.
And of course, his take is while in there replace everything.
Which isn't the worst advice, when paying for labor.

I am replacing clutch myself soon and going from there.

Eric

All the bearings and seals are standard parts available most anywhere. Do you really need syncros? Or just told you want them?

Found the note:

I haven't confirmed, so I leave that to you.

Re: Different manual transmission for the 3.0L 6G72? BrooklynOpus 09/28/21 08:14 PM
My transmission guy here in Brooklyn suggested VividRacing.com
I'll see if I can find his note.

I too have a 1989 MT Raider. At the moment, the tranny sounds like a rock tumbler.
I am hoping its just a bad throwout, or clutch part came loose.
Getting chirping now - need to deal with it asap.

Noise goes away when clutch pedal is in.
Shifts clean, no slipping. And i noticed at about 2k rpm the noise settles.
