Well... The disassemble starts in about an hour.

I almost forgot the clutch slave. That's a good point. They are easy to bleed so I might as well do it.

I also realized that I'm going to have some levers in the way, so possibly the gear shift and 4x4 lever will have to come out.

I'm considering on-hooking the drive shafts from the axles then sliding the whole assembly straight back. This way I don't have to worry about draining the t case and re-filling it. If I can get six inches between the housing and the block I should have enough room to break the bolts lose on the clutch then fly wheel to get it out.

I'll keep you guys updated.

When you pull the front driveshaft you will not loose oil, just the rear, you dont loose a whole lot though.... It is much easier to handle without the shafts hanging out on the trannny/tcase.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
i would find the exact part you need and order from oz or new zeland as our dollar is better then theres.Ive done this a few times.To check for the right part i ring a mmc dealer in the U.K, they have the program with imports (shogun in europe) to cross reference.Do state pajero and your chassis number!! I contated mini brutes out of Saskatoon,bad expereince and would not recomend using them!!!

Day one...

After eight hours of working on the truck... and five beers, I've got the tranny moved back and the old clutch out. There was material on it but there was allot of signs of heat. Everything was glazed. The bell housing was soaked with oil.

I ended up wasting allot of time unhooking stuff that didn't need to be unhooked, but that's how you learn. I also wasted time trying to do it without taking out the gearshifts, then trying to do it with the transmission half out.

Hopefully everything arrived on the bus today so I can pick it up tomorrow and put it back in the truck.

We'll see how tomorrow progresses.

So which flywheel did you have? Just think the next mitsu that needs a clutch will benifet from all your experience.

It is a weird 2 piece fly wheel I've never seen before so I assume it's the dual mass. You can actually see the two plates move separately when you wrench on it.

My advise to the next Mitsu owner is have lots of jacks, stands, and 1/2" extensions, most importantly, have some good friends to hand you tools and make fun of you. It helps motivate you through the process.

Too angry to take pictures!

In typical Mitsu fashion I've ran into a snag. The truck is now in storage mode, using up space in Phil's garage. I felt so bad I ended up hauling some garbage form him (ha ha).

There was a snaffu when shipping the parts, the box was labeled with the correct clutch kit... unfortunately the matching clutch wasn't inside the box. Back to the drawing board!

No worries bud. It'll go back together - should check into the 2.6 clutch possibility though... might be an avenue worth exploring?

Thanks again for hauling the cardboard/etc. Freed me lots of space around the walls. Got my electrical cable into the garage now too. Might have light/power by the time you get back? Perhaps.

from the research I did a couple years back, the 2.6 clutch fits no problem. It is sprung differently but if you go with an upgraded 2.6 clutch everything should be golden. I'd double check though
