All said and done, may have been faster, easier to pull the engine?

Yes, I have a constant search set up for the wrecking yards. You're right, they're getting harder and harder to find.

Hi All,
Just a slight delay in the re-assembly. The (3) orders I placed with Mitsubishiparts.com were cancelled due to parts not being available and one of them including the filter screen, so I'm looking for a few items:

- Transmission Screen (MD609041) - Can this be re-used following a backflush with carb cleaner and compressed air? I gave in and ordered a replacement from NAPA. frown
- Transmission Screen Gasket x2 (MB896470) - These were very brittle and started to come apart while removing the screen. I cannot find these anywhere, does anyone see an issue with tracing & cutting a new one from gasket sheet?
- Rear Transmission Mount (MB581620) - Rubber is very soft, found an aftermarket through NAPA frown

I'll keep browsing the internet, see what I can find.

Also, Regarding the transmission mount, mine appears to have been missing a bolt. Can anyone help identify the item number for the bolt that is supposed to go into #33 in the attached picture?

suzi the psychic is always willing to give her all to these ventures.
her hyway drive is a real pain, and i think more tinkering is required.
i believe an open diff. for the hyway is in her future- that poor lunchbox locker mostly acts like what a spool does?
be fun to play w/an airlocker.
broke some metalglue joint in the front skid and used a few zip ties to hold it in position(and tried not to hit it there), but that is the only obvious carnage.
we will see- closer inspection need to be done...…..
looking forward.

I was recently gifted this 1997 Mercury Mountaineer, 302, AWD and bone stock. Representing the high-end options of it's day (minus sunroof), my daughter said the vehicle is a guy, so we named him Sapphire, urban assault specialist. Plans are for some 31" tires on FX4 Level II rims, rumbly exhaust, and daily use.

I was able to pull a full antenna assembly out of a donor in junkyard, so next step is to swap that part out and see if there is any change now that I have a different wire connecting to the radio.

Hi All,
Seems that I've become the latest victim of a high idle issue on my 1989 3.0L GEN1 eek. There is a wealth of knowledge on these forums regarding this issue, so I have a fair amount of reading ahead of me. After reading through section 14 of the FSM regarding the MPI system I'm developing a plan to troubleshoot.

Issue: At cold-start idle shoots up to ~2200RPM and is steady. Once warm idle is ~1500RPM and steady, no bouncing. I had bounce when first purchased vehicle and cleaning the ISCS seemed to resolve.

Part of my plan involves removing the throttle body for a deeper cleaning and to replace o-rings & gaskets. Aside from these, are there any other maintenance items that anyone would recommend replacing as part of this exercise?

Also, I'm reading that there is potentially a non-serviceable issue with my TB that causes this high idle, is 89 a 1-year-only part for this as well?

You might have been able to pry that little remaining bit? Good work, though! Must 'save' as many good parts as possible.

RAy Sala isn’t scrapping an SR. Probably has everything you need. Should be able to find him on FB if he doesn’t respond on here. Given that the locker diaphragm is obsolete combined with the shipping cost, you might consider an ARB. Install it in your gen 1 3rd member and you’re done. If you’re looking for gen 2 rear disc brakes you can use the LS rear end with your 3rd member. Both are 10 bolt. I did exactly this.

Nice truck. I'm just wrapping up my 4d56T swap into a 89 Ram 50. Man, seemed like swap info is very limited for these. I looking at the exhaust manifold and there isn't much space. How did you get the EGT probe in there?

Hey guys, check out this site; Partsology.com. I got a set of new VLA's for $108 and change, and free overnight shipping! That's about half what I expected and they are the upgraded big hole ones too. The even have full rebuild kits.

Hey, that’s ok. Thanks for checking.

Anyone else out there have a good 2.6 cluster they’d sell?
