MMTR Mini
« on: March 01, 2015, 11:19:38 AM »
Needs: ebrake freed up, new alt belt, fix/ figure spaghetti shifter issue. Looks like loose bushings all over.

Check timing belt, plugs, clutch cable, choke. Cold start was very difficult.

Insure it

Plate it?

Paint it


Parts Notes:
Toro cross-reference stuff? http://minitrucktalk.com/threads/interesting-mitsu-engine-info.934/#post-5464

so it's stuck in reverse since I parked it at home the first time.

The shitty shifter seems to have made me fight the shift finger right out of the reverse fork leaving it with reverse engaged. Found a parts drawing that shows how the mechanism works. Probably have to pull extension housing off the trans to fix. It's like a rear shifted Toy case with the linkages coming in the back side. Hopefully simple matter of clean it up, drop the driveshaft, I think pull the rear trans mount, split the case, shift it out of reverse with the shift rail, and be all set.

Just what I was hoping for with a new purchase!

Mini - 0
Ranger - 1 (it runs/drives/starts/forwards and backs all on its own)
mowzer - (-1) (minor electrical fire last night. undiagnosed. I ripped the battery out and let it sit. fawk me.)

Ooh, I just had a thought - I wonder if I can coax the reverse fork back through the reverse light switch hole. that'd be pretty ideal!

pulled the switch, can pry but not moving easily.

mild concern about getting the linkages set properly for reassembly, but I think I will have to split it to fix it :(

I can only imagine the amount of stuff you are going to accumulate by the time you are 50. You are going to need some serious property  :)

Drove it to work. Sorry no pics yet. No ponies and lots of oil smoke. Made it through the snow on the trail bridges better than I expected. Not sure how it'll do with softer snow on warmer temps.

Stalls a lot when cold. Probably need to bump idle up a bit. Reminded me why carbs suck...
