Getting the Wheeling Fever
What years are the GEN 2's? Do they bolt up without modification?

I just replaced all the parts of my GEN 1 UCA's, will I still be able to utilize the same parts or do I have to just write them off?

Thanks for the feedback.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I got in the Aisin Hubs and started installing them this evening. Got the first one installed and I found out why the auto hubs weren't working.

My buddy packed them full of grease when he installed them. Guess I'll tear them down, clean them up and keep them as spares for HELGA.

Anyways, I got the first one installed and had to come in for supper. I'll put the other one on tomorrow and test them out.


Hope everyone has a great 4th of July Holiday.
Stay Safe.

I believe the FSM lists a light coating of engine oil for the auto hubs. You may want to download the FSM. Give a copy to your buddy if he's going to be working on your truck.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July celebration. I finished the hub install and also installed the bouncy seat frame I had into HAGAR. Then we tried him out for 12 miles, over extremely washed out roads, to go watch fireworks last night, HAGAR performed excellently.

I've downloaded the FSM's from "Mitsubishilinks.com", have them printed out in a 3-ring binder and it was in the truck.

My buddy was just trying to help out, so I can't give him to much grief. I planned to change them out to manual hubs anyways (and this just gave me an excuse).

Really no harm done, I'll tear them down, clean them up, apply a light coat of lithium grease, then wrap them up and shelve them for later use if needed.

Thanks for the comments,
LTUX

Rory,

YES, I still have all the emissions control equipment. Send me a PM about everything that are you needing and I'll scrounge around and see what all I can come up with.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
Well now I know I have the fever!!!

Gonna buy a '87 Monty in Colorado next weekend. It has some motor knocking after it warms up. Don't have a clue what could be causing it? It's had the head rebuilt and the timing chain replaced, could they have gotten the distributor 180 degrees out of time. Anyone have any idea's? Everything else looks pretty good.

Haven't had a chance to get a set of GEN2 Upper Control Arms for HAGAR yet, to level out his stance. Figure I'll mess with that this winter.

By the way, What is the difference between the GEN1 UCA's and the GEN2's?

Thanks for answering my questions,

LTUX

If you mean knock other than detonation, look for rod or main bearings. Rod bearings make the most noise on deceleration while mains are loudest under heavy load, like climbing a long hill.
