    You need to access the gearbox ecu and splice into a wire on the harnass.

    The rest is simple but time consuming to route wires etc.

    Had to fork out for a new battery. These Di-D engines need a healthy battery and mine was starting to let me down.

    Yip. That 3200 needs a lot of umph to start turning. Also check the connwction clamp is still good. I had to replace one on mine after it stretched over the years. Although it still made good contact it just was not tight enough for that voltage to properly pass through.

    68 Ah is useless. Mine got tired after 2 years and let me down a few times if I left the door open too long.

    Put a 102 Ah in no more nonsense.

    I went for one of these. It fits snug thanks to the previous owner that widened the battery tray.

    It swings the engine nice and fast.

    The CCA is the power rating of the battery.

    The Ah is how long it can supply power. Ie, it can supply 90amps for an hour but doing that is not recommended.

    I dont need a battery that can give power for long durations. The pajero diesel engine needs a battery that can deliver amps!

    A 3 kilowatt starter will draw 300 amps at 10 volts.

    So the 860 amp rating of the battery I fitted is more than up to the task.

    Touch wood!

Nothing out of the ordinary for such a high miler and she has actually been very reliable. There is nothing wrong with it, but the specialist engineering and parts can be pricey for the smallest of things. Hence, I decided to go back to the rugged Mitsu engineering.
    Good call mate. I have days where I miss my beetle too but there comes a time when a man must decide.... Actually never mind. I've done enough T-reg bashing in my life time.

    Congratulations Maruis, I wish you MANY MANY trouble-free miles from a vehicle that serves you and your family with the utmost loyalty. A vehicle that does not beep at you every month saying ther..... sorry, ther I go again.

    GREAT CHOICE, ALL THE BEST MATE!!!

    Decided to gut the Catalytic converters.

    Strange that I have two CATs on my Gen4.1. My boss has a Gen4.2 and he only has one CAT (immediately post turbo).

    The CAT immediately after the turbo was already gutted but the downstream catalytic converter was still in place. It wasnt blocked but a good deal of ash came out when I started banging on the core.

    Time will tell if it saves on fuel economy.

    I'm still undecided about swapping the big silencer box for a free flow box (or two).

    Gutting the CAT made no difference. Maybe a tad more mid range punch but it could be my imagination.

    Maybe I must just take the lead out of my foot to get better economy figures.

    Alternator acted up again three weeks ago to Hogsback. About 100km into the trip it would spike up to 16 volts with the battery light flickering.

    I pulled over thinking its a heat issue. I used the window washer sprayers liberally onto the alternator with car off. Restarted, and its been fine ever since. I dont trust it, so I have ordered a new alternator from germany. R3.2k is a lot better than R40k from the agents.
