    How big a job is the pitman arm? I need to go through the process as well?

    spray q20 for a few days to loosen up the pitman arm

    remove wheel
    center steering
    remove balljoint nut halfway on small end of pitman arm
    use puller to release balljoint
    unscrew big nut halfway on big end of pitman arm
    smack witha big 4pound hammer to get it loose - this is not easy as you feel you might break something
    once it is loose mark the postion of the arm on the splines
    loosen both nuts
    replace arm
    put everything back together
    small tighten by feel
    big nut is about 143NM torque
    go for alignment

    Theoretically you don't need an alignment after the fitment of the new Pitman arm.

    The whole task took 1 hour. Removing and fitting the wheel took half the time!

    If the Pitman arm won't budge, it can be heated before hitting.
    Worse case is to cut a slot in it with a small grinder.

    My first trail. Nothing broke and I was very impressed with what the vehicle can do.

    While now getting to address my A/C system I noticed I have no electric fan in front of the condensor and I know that is a boo boo. So I made a quick trip to Midas and a little bit later. Voila!



    It only runs if the compressor clutch is engaged ( 12v going to clutch switches a relay )

    I got to get the A/C working! The 'reliable' temp gauge showed 36 at some stage - and that was while driving on the highway.

    Small update. The MAF sensor packed up. The car started lurching and dying and hunting at idle again.

    I unplugged the MAF sensor and the engine purrs like a kitten again. ( This creates the check engine light to stay one )

    The stealer wanted R4500 so I asked some mitsu friends overseas in USA if they would keep an eye out for me for a MAF sensor as they are cheap there from the junk yards.

    Lucky for me MontyMcV found one and with shipping and registered post it all came to $60 ( R475 via paypal ).

    I'm just waiting for it to come in.

    My list grows short now.
    - A/C blockage removal and gassing.
    - Shocks
    - anti-roll bar rubbers ( suspension clunking is annoying )

    Hi 4ePikanini/4ePajero

    Can you possibly help me with torque settings. Busy overhauling my engine 6G72 3.0 V6) at present and should be roughly the same as your Pajero engine.

    Got settings as follows:

    Head 40Nm - 70NM - 100Nm (staged)
    Flywheel 77Nm
    Big ends 26 - 52Nm (staged)
    Mains 80Nm

    I have rebored the block and cut crank and are fitting new pistons, rings and bearings. Torqued the Mains ok. Torqued Big ends first stage = Ok. Torqued second stage and can't move the crank by hand at all. Is this right?

    Appreciate the help.

    Thanks. Torque settings seems right. Still feel awkward about crank not able to turn by hand. Think I will re-torque too make sure.

    have you checked clearances with plastigage?

    A lubed and correct torque assembled engine should be able to turn by hand ( using a ratchet - not just gripping the crank or pulley )

    Are the heads on yet?

    I have decided to take the assembled block and crank back to the engineers. Heads are not fitted yet.

    Very true but in the end I had to do the stripping myself and refit pistons again. Saw that my block is not gonna get attention since I have already paid and stripped at engineers place for them to measure caps. Miscommunication between me and engineer, two bearing caps swopped around caused issue. My caps were numbered and that how I put it back. they did not go according to numbers and fitted left sided piston on right side - numbered conrod. So basically just time wasted but at least easily fixed.

    keep us updated and you owe us some pictures
    Will post some pics later. Struggled a lot to get block on to gearbox as well as getting block on left sided engine mounting. Lowering block one side was in line but other way off.
