Mitsubishi 4x4 and SUV Tech
07/14/18 10:27 PM
Some of you may remember a recent thread where I was doing a Weber carb swap on my '87 2.6l. Just to recap: everything went well, the engine runs far better than it did with the old Mikuni. Very happy and highly recommend it.

However, there's this little problem that surfaced after I did the swap: the battery light is on all the time. I've checked the alternator (putting out a steady 14.3v at idle) and the battery is in good condition. As noted in the previous thread, I've disconnected and removed all of the emission control mechanisms (we don't have inspections where I live) and disconnected the ECU. Still the battery light is on.

What am I missing? What else could it be trying to tell me?

My '87 Montero is in beautiful condition overall, but just the other day I noticed a patch of the factory clearcoat on the top of the front fender (next to the hood) is flaking off. I suppose, after 31 years, that it's inevitable, but I'd like to stop it before it goes further and makes the whole truck look ratty. It's the only spot on the truck that has done so, and it's about the size of a post-it note.

I'm not a body & fender guy at all, so my first thought was to remove all of the loose clearcoat, feather the edges to reduce the chances of peeling, then cover the area with some clear auto lacquer.

Is there a better way to go about it?
