    No Start Fuel Issue

    I finally tracked down the no start issue. Ended up being a broken wire. When I would put 12v into the fuel pump plug, the corresponding pin at the relay would read 3v. Started tracing the wire and found this - The wire hanging down on the left goes...

    No Start Fuel Issue

    Have been dealing with a no-start issue with my Gen II - '95 SR. We were leading a trip up to go play in some snow when the engine just died and would not start. Ended pulling Monty to a safe spot and jumped into my girlfriend's built Land Cruiser. Enjoyed the day playing in the snow, then...

    PDX Gen 2 Body lift questions

    I've done the lift on my 1995 SR. It is pretty easy job. As you mention brake lines and fuel tank filler line are really the only issue. One of these day, I'll get around to lowering the radiator. Did have to tweak the lower hose a touch. And did trim the console a touch in order for the...

    Hey guys!! Thanks for the responses!! They have helped me determine a plan to get the truck back on the trail. The engine was pulled this weekend. After putting it on a stand, reattaching the timing belt (after busting a couple knuckles aligning the cams .... grrrrr....) found the engine...

    Engine Refresh

Long story short, I have a great bunch of friends that gave up half of their Sunday to come tow my rig and 16 ft camper back to Seattle. Anyway dug into the engine and...

    Push Button Start

    Thanks for the responses guys. It's and equal opportunity issue - not more prevalent after driving a bit. On my last Montero, I had the same issue. Swapping the ignition switch did not solve problem. Still have the new switch laying around guess it's worth a shot. On old Montero, ended...

    Push Button Start

    Starting my Monty is becoming a crap a shoot. Hit the ignition key and maybe the engine will turn over or maybe it won't. I know the issue is with the key barrel going south and really don't want to replace it. Thinking about installing a push button start system that requires the key to be...

    Extended Brake lines with 2" coil spacers

    I ran the Daystar 2" coil spacers for 4 years on my last Gen II without extending the brakes lines without issue. I did not remove the swaybar though. If I'd done that prolly would of extended them. That said, the brake lines are prolly original - would not hurt to replace them. ~ Jon

    The Switch

    Agreed, I use FB, this and other sites for daily Montero fix. Mainly use 4x4wire site for research. Even then, I don't go to the site, just crawl the site via Google " Montero ______" ~ Jon
