This afternoon’s small Pajero project was changing the gear oil in the transfer case as I continue to baseline the maintenance of the truck. Like the front differential a few weeks ago, it was nice to see clean old oil come out of it. Someone in Japan kept up with the maintenance on this truck. U-joints got greased on the front and rear driveshafts while I was at it.
I also figured out that the step in the garage floor and the 2x10 boards I used for racecar loading on the trailer are the same height. Pulling the Pajero up on them, combined with its ground clearance in the first place, results in a level truck with ample room to work under on a creeper. You can get under it on a creeper without, but it is just a bit too tight to comfortably work under for more than something really quick.
I’ll have to wait for Amazon to bring me another bottle of Red Line GL4 gear oil to change out the fluid in the transmission.
