It's not quite the Disco, but as a straight swap for the shaguar, I can't complain!

1991 Pajero, 12 months MOT, Muds.

Plans are to lift the suspension, lift the body. Most likely drown it, paint it.

Oh, wound the front torsion bars up today, now sitting about 1.5 inches higher on the front.

Need to sort some LWB springs for the rear now.

Yyeeaaahhh!!!! Looks good mate!

Which muds has it got on?

Funny you should mention lwb springs, I might be buying patrol y60 rear springs for my lwb to give me a 3" suspension lift so may be able to sort something out with my ones?!

Oh and got a pay and play day 5 mins outside Cardiff at the end of the month if you and ad are interested?

Still weighing up using a 2" spring spacer on the back or replacing the springs with patrol ones. Not going to be done for at least a couple of weeks though.

P&P day is at a place called Ty Rhiw farm on Sunday 29th July with a forum called bonkas 4x4. Lot's of their vids on YouTube and is 15 for members and 20 non members and is 10-4.

Can't do that day, I'm at a Land Rover show with work all weekend. Sad

Apparently LWB springs on a SWB equate to a two inch lift, but the apparently 12 turns on the torsion bars equate to 2 inches... I did 15 turns and ended up with 1.5 Inch.

Had a practice with the camo paint work last night, I'll get a picture later!

Lol I no some of the boys on bonkas just used drain pipe for a snorkel.

Rubbish you can't make the pay and play. Going to be my first time off roading and first time with my mud tyres!

Yeah lwb springs are meant to be around a 2" lift for the swb. Did you check the bottom bump stops after raising the front? They may need cutting down a little!

Yeah Drain pipe and some silicone pipework is my plan.

Didn't think to look at the lower bumps tbh...

What tyres have you got?

You'll be facing brake pipe issues on a 3 inch lift won't you?

And front shaft UJ's will bind?

It's a common way to do suspension lift on the lwb. No alterations need to be made apart from lifting the front a little. They say the front should only go up max of about 2" otherwise it gets quite involved with balljoint flips etc. The body lift is ok with no alterations on a 1" or 2" but more than 2 and quite a few mods need to be done.

Milners off road are a good place for cheap parts!

But if you lift the back and not the front it'll look odd!? Shocked

I'm just going to do the body lift with 2 hockey puck per body mount,... should be about 2 inches then.

Yeah not 100% level but apparently recommended that the front should be about an iinch lower than rear. Something to do with handling and loading up the back.

bad idea, we have had a few vehicles in the last few years with people running cooking oil, the viscosity of the oil is to thick and shears the diesel pump shaft inside as the tolerances are very close, will cost you more in the long run buy repairing the pump, sounds like im having a moan, but only from past experience.

Depends on the type of pump being used, this is running a Bosch copy so should be fine, it's Lucas style pumps that do that as they use the diesel as lubrication, Bosch pumps don't work the same way.

I love the Pajero, can't wait to see it Matt black, and it needs some chronic noise!

I've seen a lot of talk about the diesel fuel system on the pajero/shogun and apparently they can cope with really crap fuel as they were also designed and sold in countries where fuel quality is dismal!?

^ What he said.

Ran the Disco on clean and used veg, never had an issue with the fuelling system over the 10k odd miles I did. That ran a Bosch pump.
