    Is there a usdm vehicle that had a 4.9 low pinion 8" front diff?

    What bell housing enables this? Is your G54Bt a narrow or wide block? Don't most, if not all, Toyotas have passenger side drop transfer cases?

    Seeking Help With Dead JDM V5MT1 Mystery

    If you've the JDM V5MT1 from the '92 Pajero, the D4BF should bolt up w/o issue. The problem lies in trying to mate a US market V5MT1, found behind the 3.0/V6 6G72 in Might Maxs/D50s/Gen 1 & 2 Monteros/'97-'99 Montero Sports, to a 2.3/2.5 4D55t/4D56t/D4BF. The 3.0/V6 input shaft(+/-29mm) and...

    Is there a usdm vehicle that had a 4.9 low pinion 8" front diff?

    3.0/V6 Gen 1 Monteros were available with low pinion 4.88(4.875) gears; which should be close enough to your 4.9 rear to not cause any issue: https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/gearing-for-monteros-list.171427/ Here is an ancient 4x4wire posting of an 8" LP 4.88 R&P set for sale, long...

    My SAS Mazda Diesel Expedition project

    I believer you're right, please correct us if any of this is incorrect Jeff, the following graph is based on these specs (https://www.blocklayer.com/rpm-gear.aspx): -Cooper STT Pro's in 235/85-16 = 31.89" OD - http://us.coopertire.com/tires/discoverer-stt-pro -Mazda 5mt = 3.370 / 2.158 / 1.396...

    My SAS Mazda Diesel Expedition project

    I'm not certain, Jeff would have better first hand experience... I'd love to know what the cruising RPM and MPG are at 70 MPH running the 4.88s and 235/85R16s. I've seen it mentioned that the 4D56t/D4BF tends to enjoy revving more so than the earlier 4D55t, as well as most diesels in general...

    Questions about the Montero Sport

    The pic you posted is of a Montero Sport, it is NOT a Montero. To make it easier on yourself, consider the truck you posted merely a SPORT, an entirely different vehicle than a MONTERO. It's built upon a 3rd gen Mitsubishi L200/Triton truck platform. Montero Sports have leaf rear ends until...

    Questions about the Montero Sport

    They're entirely different vehicles; its really unfortunate Mitsubishi applied the 'Montero' moniker to both as it really confuses and muddies the water for many. The Montero Sport is essentially an SUV body mounted to a 3rd gen Mitsubishi truck (L200/Triton) chassis. Think Toyota Hilux Surf/4...

    Seeking Help With Dead JDM V5MT1 Mystery

    That's disappointing to hear, sorry. It appears OEM part # ME581032 has been superceeded by part # ME509458: https://mitsubishi.epc-data.com/pajero/v23w/gnxe/manual-transmission/m-t-case/132467,132468,132470/ OEM part # ME509458 is available but looks to be +/- $420 shipped to the US...

    Seeking Help With Dead JDM V5MT1 Mystery

    That's pretty frustrating... If that turns out to be the case, it shouldn't be too difficult to turn down the input shaft from the US market V5MT1 on a lathe to fit through the JDM bell housing. Good luck with the new shop, I look forward to learning what you find out.

    241OR Ruby Tcase conversion, input needed

    As an aside and follow up to Toasty's comments, I noticed someone listed a 2.85:1 transfer case from a gen 1 on the ADD forum 10 days ago; I've no connection or relation to the seller, just though I'd pass it along if others were looking. For sale is 2.85:1 transfer case out of a gen 1 auto...

    Which Ball Joint?

    Someone more knowledgeable please correct me if I'm wrong, but am fairly certain the cromoly ball joints offered by ADD are actually Proforgeds units and the design, at least for the Gen 2 and MS versions, was fairly recently updated, within the past year or so, to include grease zerks. I sent...

    D50 Diesel Build

    Yeah, the Hyundai D4BF is the same motor as the Mitsubishi 4D56t. There are a few very minor differences like valve covers, front vs rear sump oil pan, etc but otherwise they're exactly the same. My understanding is Hyundai bought the design/rights from Mitsubishi several years ago and...
