then began the existing rearend removal process.
observation--- much contact happens on suzi's poor pumpkin(i'll post pic later?), so i'll mess-up the new paint when i try to metalglue some wearplate type thing on the bottom to protect that drainplug better.
also want to get a bit longer(1-2" brake hose to replace the 30yr. old one to the axle. been wanting to do that for the front, also.
developing too many alsos.
time to start makin' the punch lists- the seasons move on..

When I go to pick it up from around the block later, I'll confirm whether the hum is present with the key in the On position prior to the vehicle starting.

Confirmed, the fuel pump "buzz" never occurs while the key is in the On position, it's only audible when the vehicle is running.

Today is another example of it starting up an hour+ after previously stalling while driving and refusing to re-start, without any tinkering or potential fixes.

Damn. Puts my work to shame. Mine has a 32/36 Weber, Pacesetter header, 2" custom catless exhaust, and 31" STT Pros and can also scratch second.

(Its also for sale... $5800 OBO)

Update: someone on another forum gave me a tip to slightly jack the front of the engine so that the flywheel pointed a little downward, which would give enough space for the hump on the bellhousing to clear. Worked like a charm (well, it did once I remembered that the transmission needed to be oriented on an angle to match the engine!)

Now, "the rest of the story": I had the KM145 transmission rebuilt this summer, and a few weeks ago the transmission locked up at a stop. I pulled the transmission, took it back to the shop, and invoked the warranty. Now, when I reinstalled the transmission the first time, the input shaft was pristine ā€” not a mark on it. When I pulled it out this time, though, there was a groove warn in the input shaft where the pilot bearing rides. The transmission place said that the pilot bearing had bound up the input shaft, and if the tranny was in 4th gear and the clutch pushed without downshifting, the 4th gear wouldn't disengage. Sounds reasonable, especially since I saw the damage with my own eyes before they got their hands on it.

This time, instead of trusting the cheap $4 pilot bearing that came with the Sachs clutch kit (supposedly a quality part), I ordered up a made-in-Japan Nachi (which I'm told is OEM) bearing and installed that before reinstalling the tranny.

I hope this is the last time I have to pull that thing for a long, long time!

I picked this up in a Japanese auction; it arrived at Port Newark in late December. Low mileage and well cared for. Has become my daily driver.
1993 JDM Pajero, 2.5 turbodiesel, 5sp, short wheelbase. Right hand drive. Front winch bumper on order and I'm told will be here Real Soon Now.
Fun in the mud.

Has it sat for any longer period of time? There is a process for getting the oil back into the VLAs. When they drain out, it will make a clackity tick.

Thanks for the ideas on this thread. I have the same issue with my Gen. II Pajero headlights. Didn't know that the lights had to be on, but I suppose that makes sense. I can hear a click after a second or two and I expect there's a relay or circuit breaker doing its thing in the line. I'll try the vinegar idea.

The hinge is sold as an assembly, if still available, not the component 3 pieces.

Your pricing gives me hope. I am trying to get at least $5k for my 88 SWB, and starting in the neighborhood of $6k OBO. While technically already for sale, the driver's door panel is off as I had a local fab shop make new teeth for the window regulator (3 were missing) and I finally got it back yesterday. Once that is installed again, I was taking it to a local tint shop for limo around the back and the AS1, and 35% on the fronts. It has a new engine, clutch, long-tube headers, Weber 32/36 conversion, and brand new 31x10.50 Cooper STT PRO tires. It also has a pair of 12" Kicker subs and 1000w amp, too much for me, but I got them for free at work (towing and rescue, we get the vehicle's titles if nobody claims them in a certain amount of time), and I am sure some kid will love to thump his eardrums out with them. It also has a custom front bumper, and zero rust (SW truck).

Yeah, I think the sale will get serious next week, just in time for the tax refund ballers to come out of the woodwork.
