Question about 1991 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

I am getting ready to install a brand new distributor in my 1991 Mitsubishi Mighty max P/U with a 2.4 and I want some pointers on how to do this the right way without screwing up my timing . Please explain the steps as far a marking the old one where it's mounted so I insert the new one the right way the first time . Can someone please explain this to me . I have learned quite a bit about mechanics by watching others do things ,but this is something I have never tackled. Thanks

Start at one spot and start marking the wire clockwise with tape (1,2,3,4, etc) Remember how you took it off for replacement. I pull 1 at a time and put it on the new one.

    The firing order part I know ,it's the slipping the new distributor into place is whats got me a little worried. I was told by another mechanic to mark where the distributor is lined up on the motor and thats the part I don't understand . This task is my first rodeo so I wanna get it right ,because I don't have the money to have someone else do it .

I have a 1991 Mitsubuishi mighty max truck . The truck runs fine until I drive for about 1 mile and then the check engine light comes on and the truck starts shaking , but does not lose power.


Hi, I own an 86 Mighty Max truck myself. Is there anyway you can get the code number for the engine light coming on. It could be many things that cause this problem. Fuel filter, EGR, Clogged Catalyst, Sparkplug Misfire, Cracked Distributor Cap, the list goes on. It needs to be determined if the problem is fuel or electrical related to help diagnose the problem.

I believe what he is telling you is to put a mark on the motoor something to reference where the rotor in the distributor is pointing.
This way when you put the new one in, you can make sure the rotor is pointing the same way and not mess up the timing. Only problem with this, if you are not exact and drop it one tooth offm it will not run right.

Torque specs for mighty max


Per my Chilton's manual tehe bolts should be (cold engine) 65 to 72 FT. Pnds., the cam shaft bearing bolts should be 8x25 = 15 - 19 Ft pnds and the 8x65 should be 14 - 15 Ft Pnds.

The sequence is as follows for the (10 ) head bolts:

7 - 5 - 2 - 4 - 10

9 - 3 - 1 - 6 - 8

I hope this may help,
Tom
