Speedy i got most of the things I wanted, Still looking for a couple of items.......i'll keep my eyes out for a bumper

So far i purchased new upper cradles, engine mounts, stabilizing rubbers........ still looking for gearbox and transfer case mounts and a/c compressor....>>>>>(the ac tech say the seal going bad, so it not achieving de correct pressures.)

ANY BODY HAVE A A/C COMPRESSOR??? ah want one!! that sun real hot these days.

I rebuilt the pitman and idle arms, I'm hoping to also replace the bottom ball joints and steering ends in the near future......ah jus accumulating the parts now, when ah get everything ah will mount up...

de van should be driving like a new one when ah finish.....

when ah get some time I'll list all that I've done for the past yr and the cost associated with it.

I'll also post up the part numbers for the original items.....

For the idle arm the bushing is re-made and the shaft is sleeved,

the actual joint is dissembled an the knuckle is capped with Teflon. (teflon goes over the knuckle similar to the cartilage on ur knee) .....a hole was drilled an tap for a grease nipple.....

as for the pitman arm the joint is dissembled an the knuckle was built up and machined back to size.......

Now i didn't see the actual work but that how it was explained to me.

All the work was done at a machine shop in california...... all the play is gone.... an it only cost around $200

as for the bottom ball joints they all being replaced.....

Thanks V, I'll check them for the gb mount,

the issue i'm getting is a vibration after 100kph,

and if i under stand ur description of the tc mount, the inner part of the tc mount burst off ......

cause there is a metal sleeve over the bolt, which floats almost to the center, and there is rubber covering the circumference of the mount body.....no inner rubber piece around the bolt.... hope u under stood my description,,,,

but i'll look into it!!!

Any particular reason y u didn't rebuild the balljoints?
Reason I'm asking I have a project that parts will be pricey and hard to get. If rebuilt parts are holding out well I'll be going that route.

It an option to do the rebuild, but i never considered it..... the only reason i did the arms is because they were customized to accommodate the pajero steering box, and i wouldn't be able to get a new one.

^^^^^ PM sent cutthroat......

Hey guys, if possible can you post what your battery charging rates are...... mines bordering on 14.4 and the guys at ac delco said that i'm over charging!!!

I Did a change out with my spare and it still running up to 14.4 with the engine @ high rev.....

One of the alternator is a original mitsubishi that has the regulator changed out and the other is a new one purchased at the parts store......

any help will be appreciated.....

what is the charge voltage @ idle????
if my a/c is off and my headlamps are off.. and i high rev.. i will go up to about 14.3 or so... i now have a voltmeter in my new IP... so i been monitoring it for quite a while now.. @ idle it wud ussually charge @ AROUND 13.8...
high beams and a/c on to the highest... @ idle will drop to about 12.7.... and when i rev will go back up to about 13.4 or soo... so try out these stuff and also try investing in a volt meter... it cud save u from buying a new battery

Thanks speedy and adamB........

Well @ idle I get a range of 14.35-14.41 with no load
with head lamps it drops to 13.9 @ idle and goes to 14.38-14.4 when @ hi rev which isn't too bad

The issue I have is when i put on the A/C.... the voltage goes up to 14.6-14.7...... so i changed out the alternator cause I was told that the regulator malfunctioning.....

Changed out to another alternator, and the same problem......so checking the A/C components now...... most likely the resistor card or the blower motor ..... will update when I come back later....

Well guys I scrapped out the blower switch, it had some carbon deposited on the contacts and the #4 fan speed contact was slightly melted, so the high current usage is apparent......

I also bridged the motor (Hook it up directly) while the engine was running, and the same thing happened again just not as high.......

i.e.>>>> with the switch the, the voltage @ idle was 14.2 at hi rev it goes to 14.8

With the direct connection the voltage was 14.2 @ idle an at hi rev it settled at 14.6......

I will be trying a new blower in the week once i can locate one......... I will keep you all posted!

For the DIY ppl, here is the Mitsubishi check list, so you can be guided accordingly......

Periodic Maintenance Service Menu

This is your guide to Mitsubishi Motors Service Plus Periodic Maintenance Schedule or PMS. It
will indicate the type of service classification that will be done on your vehicle at certain
kilometer readings. We have enumerated below the type of work that will be done to your
vehicle every time you bring it for periodic check. It is highly recommended that you bring your
vehicle regularly to our authorized servicing dealers to ensure that the proper work required is
done.
Your vehicle warranty is 100,000kms. or 3 years which ever comes first for the Lancer, Galant,
Pajero, Strada 4x4, Space Gear Gas and Diesel, L300 Exceed, Adventure. While the warranty
for the L300 Versa Van, L200 XT and GL is 50,000kms or 2 years which ever comes first. And
the warranty for the Canter, and L300 Cab and Chassis is 20,000kms. or 1 year which ever
comes first. To ensure that your vehicles stay within the warranty coverage, you should have
your vehicle checked only at our authorized service centers.
Complying with the regular periodic check up is more economical in the long run and prevents
early breakdown, thereby extending the life of your vehicle. This is what we call Mitsubishi
Service Plus.

Is the hardstarting of and on or on every shut off and restart during the day?

Starting good on cold start means glow plugs and heating components working fine. But this is strange that it's hardstarting when hot. For the period when driving, is the ac and music etc a being used? Do you have any big electrical loads in the vehicle?

Can be either battery not holding charge or not being charged properly. Check battery and alternator. Also check your battery terminals; +ve in particular for corrosion build up. Check for any loose wiring.

U getting abnormal smoking at the exhaust? if not troubleshoot on the electrical side first.but as u mentioned fuel check to see that the relay clip on the opening solenoid on the fuel pump is in good condition.

I had a similar prob. It ended up being corossion at positive terminal and wires. Cleaned up, tightened up and was good to go.

Check charging voltage of alternator wit and without load.
