Shogun build - An 88 Mitsubishi Montero build

Post by MudRaider on 10/17/2011, 12:56 am

Picked up an 88 Montero a while back, fully intending to get a spare motor together and putting it on the road so I could disassemble the MudRaider and do a bunch of electrical work inside and put in the 3.5. Well, I'm supposed to leave it stock, Rolling Eyes , but what's the fun in that?
It's a real solid little ride, the PO didn't have a clue what they were doing engine wise and toasted it. I don't know what else I will find once I get the engine in, but I hope it's minimal.

Roger that. Figuring it will be this weekend. Should have it assembled sometime Wednesday, then spend the rest of the week detailing engine compartment.

Mitsubishi had different names for the Montero depending on where it went. America - Montero, England - Shogun, everywhere else Pajero,

So how did I end up with an English Shogun? The dude I bought it from bought it from dude who was stationed in England with the Air Force. He brought it with him when he came back. The only thing I wish it was RHD.

All I need to do is get the engine off the engine stand so I can put the flywheel back on. Waiting for a buddy to return my cherry picker.

Well. the engine is in the engine compartment. Sitting. Evil or Very Mad Two hours of fighting and it just wouldn't slide all the way in. Only thing I can figure is the clutch disc didn't line up perfect with the pilot bearing. So I'm ordering a clutch pilot tool, and will pull it back out two weekends or so from now after the Florida/Georgia football game.

Can't help but think I didn't get clutch disc centered, it's the only thing that would keep motor from going all the way in. the distance is about right for the length of the pilot bearing and a little bit to stick out. Oh well. I don't usually second guess myself on stuff like this, but I really am this time.

Sounds like you are on the track...I would guess it's the pilot bearing not lining up. Try turning the crank on the front of the block.

$3 tool showed me clutch disc wasn't centered exact. Embarassed Put the tool in, tightened it back up and slid it all together., Still haven't got the top two bolts in, my mitts are big and hard to get to them. Starter is on, PS is bolted back on. Motor mounts didn't want to cooperate at all, but finally succumbed to my persistence. Fixed the air cleaner on the Weber the PO installed, They had the breather hose fitting on there with nothing on it. took the fitting of and Loc-tite'd a nut and bolt on it. Fuel lines hooked up, alternator bolted on and wired up. Coming together pretty well. Will fire it up tomorrow.,

It runs. Pops and sputters like a mofo though. Have to take the Weber carb off. I saw some RTV around the base, I would imagine there will be some leakage if that is so. My gasket set came with a stock carb gasket, which will work under the Weber adapter, I guess I'll have to make the Weber Base Gasket. The PO jocolor got me on the light switch, just noticed it was broke also. Also had the wrong (too long) bolts in the thermostat housing. They stripped when i Tightened them up. Twisted Evil I'm done for the day. Time to find my buddy the Captain. drunken

Thermostat housing fixed. got it running, but too late and noisy. The down pipes are split, exhaust is going out there. Off to Smitty's after all dialed in.

Very Happy It is running. Very Happy Some issues, all liveable. Very Happy
1. Starter tries to run on, hopefully an automatics starter will work, I have extra. Very Happy
2. New Thermostat sticks, it bypassed the first few times then it wouldn't open. Stick another in it, oh well. Very Happy
3. Exhaust leaks at the exhaust manifold to front pipe. Figured one of it's first stops would be Smitty's, but I think I will rob it off the the V8 to be Raider.That will quiet it down nicely. Very Happy
4. Radiator has a pin hole in it. Time to get out the brazing rod and see if I still got it. Cool
5. Biggest thing looks to be the accelerator cable. Have to see what the correct linkage is. What the PO has done, ain't it.
All in all, it sounds good. Had it idling at 500 rpm's no problem. OP looks good, water temp was good til the thermostat stuck. It was a little noisy (lifters) at first, but after a minute or two they quieted down nicely. Hopefully test drive it Wednesday, if I'm off.
