    1G Alternator

    Canada 1Gs had 90A alternators, probably due to running daylights?

    1G Throttlebody Swap

    Don't forget mine were assumptions, I don't have a TB handy right now to confirm it. Make sure my assumption were correct looking at the 90 TB if you have it.

    1G Throttlebody Swap

    As I said it all depends on where the port opens within the TB. If you look at the drawing that you provided (turbo engine) the ports connected to hoses B and Y seem to go further in the TB so I would assume they open behind the TB plate, while hoses R and G don't so I would assume the open...

    1G Throttlebody Swap

    The difference between those ports is that some are connected to 'after' the throttle plate, others are connected before it. Once you look at the GS TB and to what port on the GSX TB the lines were connected you should be able to figure it out. I can't offer much more as I don't have the car...

    How many "Old-Timer" DSM Guys on here?

    51 years old. Bought my 91 GST from a used car lot in Florida back in 1999 or 2000, I had no idea what it was and especially that it came with a turbo! I discovered the DSM community out of necessity, nobody either wanted or could fix it for me, especially the local Mitsubishi dealer (well, they...

    1G Wire tuck, idle speed switch?

    There's two types of ISC, the brown one (lower quality but rebuildable) or the black one (better quality but non rebuildable). Pick your poison. When I say rebuildable I mean that it can be taken apart and if you have a spare unbroken coil from another broken ISC you may be ale to fix it and...

    1G Wire tuck, idle speed switch?

    You need to extend the wire that originally goes to the ISS to the 4th, unused pin of the TPS connector (it's pin #3, you will need to install an addition connector pin or source a 2G TPS connector). I would run the wire inside the harness since you're working with the harness anyway. I can't...

    Door Seal Clips

    Where did you order them and how much are they? Ordering the Toyota ones I saved 40 cents each on the Mitsubishi price (if still available that is) but they still came at 93 cents each.

    1G Need help with missing reverse switch wiring

    I would say that proves they are the same indeed, doesn't it? In case it did sound otherwise, I just wasn't sure if it was the same since the description of that connector on Sheridan's wasn't including 1Gs and I did not have access to ASA when I posted to confirm it. At the same time I would...

    It does looks very similar, it's probably just from another manufacturer but compatible.

    Not sure that is the correct plug for a 1G, I will have to double check on my spare harness when I get home. The link shows as a reverse switch connector for 2Gs.

    Door Seal Clips

    From these two pictures it looks like the Mitsubishi part number is an exact match to the Toyota part. I purchased 4 units from a Toyota dealer in order to confirm the match as the Toyota part can be had a little cheaper (approx 96 cents).

    Need a picture of a 1Gb Talon rear body panel w/o taillights and bumper cover

    I believe I have all the parts to tackle a rear end conversion from a 1Ga eclipse to a 1Gb talon, including the bumper support bracket off a talon, but before launching I would really like to find out any other difference between the two setups. All I need is a good resolution picture of the...

    1990 GSX Daily Driver Build and Restore to 400 WHP

    You just gave me another reason to hate people who text and drive! Glad you managed to fix it, it's getting harder and harder to get parts for these cars nowadays. I am struggling finding small parts just trying to replace clips and moldings. Did you use urethane paint and clear fro the bumper...

    does anyone run their car without a power transistor?

    If anything your posts seem to confirm what I said. The CDI does the work of the PTU using the trigger signal from the ECU. The ECU outputs are not the one sinking the current. I never implied you could control the coils using the logic outputs of the ECU without a CDI in place of the PTU.
  22. serviceguy

    does anyone run their car without a power transistor?

    I may be wrong but I believe the CDI would draw current directly from the battery while using the ECU signal only to determine when to fire the spark.

    1991 talon engine swap

    it's still a mitsubishi engine, could be a compatible part between the two. That in the picture is definitely a 4G6X engine, so it if came from a 1994 elantra it could only be a 4G61 1.6, or a 4g63 if it had been swapped. That engine bay will take any 4g6x engine of the 1st generation the...

    1991 talon engine swap

    4g93 is a different engine series (4G9x) than the Sirius (4G6X) showing in your picture. The Elantra came with either a 4G61 1.6 engine or a 4G93 1.8 engine that looks completely different from the 4G6x series, hence he's right.

    1G Looking for some pointers

    - fuel pump rotor sitting in the same place over time may have gummed up (for lack of a better term) and not start when powered. If that happens you can kick start it applying 12V directly from the battery directly to the pump terminal at the pump unit, no need to take the pump off. If you take...

    Any place to buy heat shield for 2g mani and o2 housing?

    Look for the steering pump leaking, it's right on top the alternator and is as much a cause for alternator failure as the exhaust heat shield being absent. What do you mean by stock replacement? You can replace a stock 1g lower heat shield with a stock 2G and the same is true for the manifold...

    NEW user from israel, 1g eclipse :)

    Canada never had eclipses, only Talons to my knowledge. It's a 93-94 eclipse euro specifications, most likely german from the specific pop up design. 1GB in Europe retained the pop ups, with the difference of the 1Gb sporting adjustable height headlights as you can tell by the little strip in...

    Equal Length Half Shaft on a FWD

    I've had this mod installed on my 91 GST since early 2000. I used MD719710 (driver side AWD seal) and the MOPAR aluminum spacer, which is no longer available. I guess you could measure the difference between the outer diameter of the AWD ad FWD seals and have a machine shop make you a custom...

    You do not remember correctly, sorry.

    Good to hear.

    1G Are front Fwd spindles the same as Awd ?

    The hubs are the same, the knuckles are not. The tie rod end arm (for lack of a better definition of it) in the FWD is lower than the one in an AWD due to the different suspension design. FWD knuckles are actually considered a fix for AWD cars that have been considerably lowered.

    1G 1g FWD Axle + Seal Replacement

    Not sure how it seats, I converted GS-T to equal-length half shaft back in 2000 so I can't remember, but the other side looks like it is flush. The service manual only specifically mentions to apply gear oil (API GL-4 or higher) to the inner lip of the seal.

    My 1992 tsi refurb

    Are the 3kGT VR4 calipers 1st gen or 2nd gen? I'm asking to find out how the 2ng gen clrear the EVO VII wheels. Did you use the usual adapter bracket ? They seem to fit less at an angle than what I am used to see from other builds. Nice work by the way, keep it going!
