Re: suzi the psychic

inspection of a-arms reveals an interesting anomaly.
the rear bushing has been driven forward(in the arm) @3/8". the front bushing is seated properly.
wear patterns in the rear mount show the a-arm has been shoved rearward.... @3/8".
poor suzi is showing signs of being driven by feel.
when i replace the bushings, i will need to relocate the front mounts...… forward...…. i'll bet @3/8".
have some ideas on how to compensate, and harden the forward mounts at the same time(?).
they drop off that tube between the chassis rails. kinda lightweight. can't imagine how they could get bent.....
this is how she rolls.

I appreciate it. I would love to keep it as it has been a blast to drive around and people are always asking me what the hell it is when I stop for gas. Plus there's a bunch of little stuff that I never got around to fixing that bug me to pass on to the next owner but it has served me well and should continue to serve whoever ends up buying it.
Two Free Bouncy Seats Gen 1

Going to give up my rented garage, so doing some cleaning.
I have two bouncy seat bases, aka a pair. I never really used the and they are heavy.
Free if you pick up in the NYC area or I can ship if you cover the costs for shipping, packing, and a six pack for my time.
Mail me at Malykaii@yahoo.com please.
Re: 4D56 into Mazda B2600i swap thread

What front bumper/grille guard is that? The whole rig and project looks great, thanks for sharing it. I've got an 89 B2600i 4x4 and am working on getting a 92 as a parts rig. Thinking of doing a Cummins R2.5 swap at some point.
Re: Finally time to Let the 88 Pajereo Exceed Go

Oh darn - I forgot to turn on email notification so I did not get the replies.
It sold - Got $1000 CDN for it and a fellow in Brampton is going to bring it back to road-ready - It only needed the swaybar installed and a rear seal.
I logged back into 4x4 wire as there is a '98 Surf that is calling me and I wanted to look up what the Canadian audience was for questions and thought I would check back on this thread.

Well all, I haven't posted any information for a while so thought I'd give a quick update.
-Mama found out what it was gonna cost to do the turbo upgrade on HAGAR and put the brakes on that idea like she was heading for a concrete wall. (a definite "NO") Had to spend the money for her to have a total ankle replacement instead on Dec 16th.
-Have spent the last 3 weeks cleaning up my equipment shed to use as a fab shop and move everything out and around in my garage so I have space to set up a serious mechanic space to work on everything.
-My oldest son was heading back to town in his XTerra for work and had a flat. Changed the tire in a hurry and didn't get the lug nuts tight enough. By the time I seen it the rim was wobbled out and the studs were half worn through. When I was tearing it down I noticed the axle seal was leaking and figured I'd replace it while I was there. Had to press off the retainer and bearing to get to the seal, so they got new also. Spent a day and half pulling it apart, finding parts and putting it back together.
Needless to say, I haven't had a lot of time to put towards HAGAR, HELGA or LUCKY EDDY. But I am currently working on a deal for an '89 Raider in Texas that I think has a V6 motor with it and the body looks to be in excellent shape (rust free). If I can get a deal made on it, I may have to sell HELGA to pay for everything I'm wanting to do. And that's okay because it would be nice to have another Raider owner in the area.
Hope everyone had a Wonderful Holiday Season and that 2020 gives you all everything you need.

Sorry to here about the closing down of the "Montero Ranch", but you sound really happy about moving to your new location. Hope that everything is going well with the move and you get settled in without any complications. My wife and I did all of our moving the first six year we were married (48 different places from Hawaii to New Hampshire). Hope you've found a great place to settle in.
Re: Basic Montero info

I know this is an old thread.
I recently purchased a 98 with the adjustable shocks. How do you like yours for odd road use? I am trying to decide between aftermarket that matches the suspension kit (probably Iron,an) or ordering new mitsubishi shocks.

So glad to see y'all posting. I have lurked for a long time, still have my 95LS, and am going to look at a 2000 Montero Endeavor tomorrow. My poor old LS has fatal frame rot. Thank you for maintaining such a wonderful site!

Thanks Chad! I'll dig a bit deeper into the the function of that temp sensor. Appreciate you taking the time to look at the vac line and ground strap for me. That is the info I was hoping for prior to beginning reassembly.
