1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build

1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 03/06/12 07:04 PM

Here's my current truck build.


I traded my old 3.5 SOHC for a 1988 Montero with 70K miles on it with a bunch of haggard diesel parts. The truck itself is in pretty good shape aside from the paint and the hood (flew away in a dust storm). The 2.3 TD was another story, with a lot of work and almost all new parts i was able to build the engine.

Still need a flexplate before i can do a test start, I also need some random little things like alternator and fan pully.

Looking good! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> That engine has come a long way since the last time I saw it on your garage floor.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 03/06/12 07:16 PM

Since i'm having trouble tracking down the flexplate i decided to start working on the transfer case. I got a Dana 20 from LT he was having problems with it popping out of gear, I tore it down and found everything to be in good working order except the detent balls were worn out and had flat spots. I replaced the balls and shimmed the springs, shifts really hard now <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />.
Next was to fit the underdrive i got from NathanC, Luckily LT gave me the Dana 20 adapter as well so i could keep moving on this project (Thanks LT!). It had to be flipped to run on the 20, after a 5-6 hour trial and error I got it clocked and fit correctly. [Linked Image]


Next i'll need to mock up the shifters and install T-case breathers and a sightglass for the B4R underdrive.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 03/06/12 07:24 PM

First i installed the Atlas twin sticks with their supplied boots but then i got the wild idea about using the boots for a Gen 1 5speed. Wouldn't you know it's like Mitsubishi only made 5 speed Monteros so that we could have factory looking twin sticks in out automatic Monteros!
[Linked Image]

I'm still playing with the shifter and location for the underdrive shifter, Unfortunately it doesn't look like it belongs but oh well 6.69:1 low range will be cooler than having a nice shifter.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 03/06/12 09:29 PM

Good job. i think I am going to be able to use my factory 4wd boot with my Tcase set up. Is your rear driveshaft angle going to be steep?

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 03/07/12 03:03 AM

No, the dual cases are about the same size as the stock single case. Because the Gear driven cases are really short.

T-case breathers, fluid sightglass and shifters are all installed now and ready to go! I'll post up pictures a bit later.

Thanks to Haztoyz i now have the flexplate and hardware, gotta get a new starter and take it off the stand for the test start. Maybe i can make a video of that.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/01/12 09:38 PM

So i never seem to have money to buy the starter i need for this build. So i'm doing what i can while saving up, so far i have stripped most of the paint off of the truck down to bare steel and cleaned out the fuel tank.
Stripping paint sucks ass by the way, I don't recommend ever doing this. The plan for paint is yellow/black/brown with a white roof. The base color will be the yellow, the rocker panels will be black, i want a dark brown thick pinstripe on the sides. We'll see what i come up with

The idea came from the 4wd Rally Starion

I know the starters are pricey, but I know a place that rebuild them for $120 which is a huge savings. If you can locate an old worn out starter I can help have it rebuilt or you may be able to have a local company rebuild it.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/02/12 06:30 PM

I have an old worn out starter, I've thought about rebuilding it myself but i took it apart and there really doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it so i'm thinking the windings must be toast.

PAJ, i'd love to sell you my '94 this weekend but even if i did i'd have to use that money to buy another vehicle. Maybe if the missus gets a job i'll take $300 or so off the top of selling you the '94 and finish this project. I still need to help you pull a lockup trans here soon.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/02/12 06:51 PM

Toasty, use the fsm starter test procedures to test the windings. Bet it's just brushes, but starter rebuilds, even having the thing rewound, are not very expensive at a good shop. Try elec motor rebuilding shops. Brushes are cheap. The most likely failure point is the solenoid internal contacts that carry the heavy juice, and sometimes the solenoid windings themselves. How is the starter gear?

You can test the starter motor easily with jumper cables. Ground the motor frame to a car battery with the black cable to batt-. hook the red to battery +. Touch the red to the lower solenoid big bolt connector, the one that's hooked to the motor windings. motor should spin, but solenoid will not extend the gear. Now test the solenoid. Same black hookup, but hook the red to the upper solenoid fat terminal. Use a jumper wire from the red to the solenoid terminal (usually the spade connector or the smallest connector). Solenoid should extend the gear, then the motor will spin the gear. If not, remove the two jumper cables, and ohm the spade connector to frame or solenoid case. Should be an open circuit - if not, solenoid windings are bad. If test two does not extend the gear and spin the motor, the problem is that the solenoid core is not completing the circuit between the two fat terminals on the end of the solenoid. This is usually due to arc scarring of the copper disk or fat terminal ends, and if you can take the solenoid apart, you can clean these up with emery paper or a file. In any case, a solenoid is a lot cheaper than a starter.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/02/12 07:07 PM

I have a working - albeit filthy - starter sitting in my garage. It's off the 2.6L so I doubt it's got the balls to crank over a high-CR diesel, but if you want it, you've been more than helpful to me, Adam. I'd happily hand it over - even if you want to cannibalize it. Just let me know.
Posted By: TOASTY

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/02/12 08:10 PM

Maybe i should throw some brushes in it then, the solenoid kicks and the starter turns but very slowly drawing a lot of amps. Actually the very first time i had the thing tested at the auto parts store it worked great and passed, the next test it worked and then it slowed way down and failed the test.


Thanks Brian, but i have a 2.6 gear reduct starter on it now and it barely cranks it over.
Posted By: fasteddy

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/02/12 08:27 PM

May still be the solenoid contacts not passing enough juice. I'd try hand rotating the starter motor and feel for bad bushings on the shaft.
Posted By: LandRaider

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/03/12 06:11 PM

Take it apart!!! That's free, and you'll prob find that the brushes are too short. Toss in some new ones, and get it on.
Posted By: TOASTY

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/03/12 07:17 PM

I've taken it apart and everything looks good, but i don't know how long the brushes should be but they are tight on the armature. I have not taken apart the solenoid yet though, i'll do that today and bead blast the contact areas.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/03/12 07:19 PM

Oh, I stripped down the driver door today. Only the rear driver panel and windshield valance to strip down now. I need to post up some pics.

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/03/12 07:50 PM

Took off the solenoid, it has corrosion. But the thing doesn't really come apart, it's stamped together any suggestions? i could grind the stamped dimples. I could also run it through a anti corrosion solvent and move it and shake it a bunch.
Posted By: LandRaider

Re: 1988 Montero Turbo Diesel build - 05/05/12 05:53 PM

Pry out the stamped dimples. Then "stamp" them back after you've heehaw repaired it. Thats how I do it.

Sounds they were very thorough checking every hollow. Auctions ends TOMORROW!!! That might be only chance in loooong time to have something like that in us. Some enterprising sole might try to register that in non-emmission checking state. You'd be on your own.

And it looks brand new, too! The badassery is strong in this one.

This poor green Montero was sold, left with expired tags on the street, towed and crushed. Had a rebuilt engine, AC switched to R134 and needed a transmission. It was definitely one I should have kept in the end, but wife wanted a 4-door. This Montero even had stainless dress up pieces on the exterior door handles, haven't seen others.

First drive!! - 11/12/12 12:01 AM

Got everything pretty much buttoned up and took it for a little test drive around my neighborhood. It was AWESOME! but i can understand why they never sold these here now. This thing is a road slug <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> until the turbo kicks in and it gets up to speed but it takes a little bit to get there for sure. Even though it is slow a loaded trailer wouldn't slow it down more, this thing is going to be great out on the trails and up the hills on the highway.


The bad; the injection pump leaks out of the throttle shaft this is very depressing, my power steering pump needs a smaller pully to work at idle RPMS. I definately want to get my glow plugs wired up, it was in the 40's this morning and it took a little effort to start. I've also got the temp sender mucked up somehow, it always reads hot.


Everything else left to do is truck related stuff, shocks, rear springs, rear axle, maybe an alignment and interior bits like driver door and center console.

I've got some miles on it now, it's running great! swapped in a Sport axle from a 3.5L 1999 MS with air locker and disc brakes. Got some 33" oldschool BFG's mounted up, no lift but i may do a 1" BL. I still want a better hood but the one i've got does it's job. Here's some current pics now that photobucket works with mountain lion OS. Pictures should resize soon. Nevermind the loose wires in the engine bay, I still need to sort out my tach and then i can wrap and loom those wires to be tied back.

Back on topic, my injection pump quit leaking on it's own. I found out the original axle was nearly impossible to turn (new axle is super smooth and has a locker to boot) acceleration has improved, the power steering just needed to be bled.
Still need an alignment, i'll get to that this week and i have to re drill my alternator bracket to match the NPR alternator. Right now the alternator doesn't keep tension very well and i think it's because of the small diameter bolt i'm using with the big alternator mounting holes

How does the cooling system hold up in AZ temps?

it's coldish here now but it runs really cool so far. when i built the motor i cleaned all the coolant passages and the radiator is in decent shape. It's the aftermarket "big 2 row" at some point i'll buy the D&D aluminum unit i'm sure.
