Hey ppl, hope all is well.......

Do any of you guys know if the pejero diff can fit on the k34????

I have seen some in freeport and the guy has more on the way,

But the diffs looking similar, but the best part is that they have the self locking actuators on them thinking to see if it can fit.......

if you guys have any info abt the line up let me kno

on a side note, I got the steering box from the pejero today going in on monday,
will let you know how that goes.......

good info dude

interested to know what the result will be like

AFAIK (and I may be wrong) is that teh Paj diff has a different ratio

but this can be either good or bad, depending on what you use your vehicle for:

Lower ratios are generally desirable when going off-road. Higher ratios are better for freeway driving since they run at lower RPM's and offer better fuel economy.

http://www.differentials.com/faq.html


Check the following for the Pajero's diff (final drive) ratio

I am assuming Gen 1 (L144) or Gen 2 (V24, V26, V46) as I doubt that he getting any Gen 3 (V98) in parts

Pajero T/case & Final Drive Ratio's

Gen 1

2.3TD = 4.875, 5.29
2.6 / 2.5TD = 4.625, 4.875
2.5TDI = 4.625, 4.875
3.0 V6 = 4.625, 4.875
t/case = 1.944:1 low range for 2.6, 2.3TD & 2.5TD, 1.925:1 for 3.0 V6

Gen 2

2.6 = 4.875
2.5TD & 2.5TDI = 4.875, 5.29
3.0 V6 = 4.625, 4.875
2.8D = 4.875
2.8TDI = 4.90
3.5 DOHC V6 = 4.636
t/case = 1.925:1 low range for 2.6, 2.5TD, 2.5TDI & 3.0 V6, 1.90:1 for 2.8TDI & 3.5 DOHC V6

Gen 3

2.8TDI = 4.90 5sp man
3.2 DID = 3.917 5sp auto or 4.10 for 5sp man
3.5 SOHC V6 = 4.30 5sp man & 5sp auto
3.8 SOHC V6 = 4.30 5sp auto
t/case = 1.90:1 for all

http://www.downunder4x4.net/forum/showthread.php?t=8149


cross reference with your final drive ratio and determine (I lost my owners manual somewhere home so I can't find the value)

The K74T model is 4.636

the higher the number, the lower the ratio
The higher the number, the lower the ratio: a 5.29 gear has a lower ratio than a 4.10 gear.

http://www.differentials.com/faq.html



so according to the figures above the Pajero Gen 2 has a lower gear ratio (5.29) than the K74T model (4.636), so it will give more torque and be better off-road

Great Read V.......

Well i'm not sure abt the model, but it had a v6 gas engine........ was told that the diff can work and that the lockers only need a vacuum source from de alternator and a switch on the inside to control it.......

So far so good with de steering box, no leaks, no play and very little modification was needed...... will try to post some pics tomorrow......

the V6 gas engine . . . Hmmm

That the model with either the 6G74 or 6G75 engine

The diff should be the same as the diesel models given the way Mitsu assembled their models in that era ~mid to late 90's

I am more interested in the locking aspect

Hi guys, do you kno what are the pros an cons of raising a van with stock suppension......

My van is lower in the front and I would like to raise it up a bit, it seems to be simple,

just to adjust the torsion bar and re-camber the van.........

I just need to know if it would have any adverse effects?????

on a side note, the pajero box has increased the locking ability of the van, it is so much easier to go into tight spaces.......

the front is lower to allow for stability when the rear is loaded, so it will be level front and back

when u raise the front either by torsion bars or longer springs u put the front suspension components under more strain during rough road as it reduced downward travel

what you mean by sticking :?:

not coming on when you engage Reverse or not coming off when you de-select reverse gear :?:

there is a sensor on the gearbox

mine was not coming on at one time because there was mud inside the jack on the sensor

^^^ :D :D :D!

the wire on the gearbox i think works with a negative signal... if there is a break in the wire somwhere... and it grounds off the reverse lights will come on..

Guys,

I did a simple injector and fuel pump flush by Big Z in princess town.

nothing fancy, guess its up to wot cleaning agent is used.

And i did get a noticible increase in performance.
Less smoke even at WOT.
Acclerated for the first time and had me sink back in the seat. (gear 1)
was able to chirp in gear 3 (with my noisy gearbox and diff wit backlash)

and i also noticed the engine is running much cooler. even tho i made the highway run at 8 pm to test out.. and its usually cooler at nites.

What i want to find out, assuming my injectors were very dirty, and restricting diesel flow, spitting fuel, is it possible that the engine was running "lean" thus increasing engine temp at high speeds?

I havnt gotten a chance to test run during the day (mid day hot sun) to see the difference.

the services was $325.

Big z recommends it be done every 20000 kms.
I have never done that before and i tink i will be including it in my regular scheduled maintenances now.

My only concern was if too much of this cleaning agent will damage parts of the pump or injector tips. He reassured me it is safe... but i guess still open for doubt.

Cleaning agent was not disclosed as its a marked "trade secret".

but i was assured it wasnt transmission oil and pitch oil mixed lol..


If due to the recently cleaned injectors, my engine temp is reduced, it may save me the cost of upgrading my radiator which i was beginning to think was undersized for this 4d56T engine. (radiator is original for the NA 4d56)
