I have a '96 TDiesel Paj.
Is the gearbox the same as in the Triton?
and when towing a 17 foot c'van, is it advisable to tow in 4th gear, or can I use 5th gear safely?
I apologise if this has been done to death...but haven't read anything on it.

Good car there.
Can not be biased since I have the same car :o)

The 2.8l TD and the 3.5l petrol have the same gearbox.
Heavier duty for the extra torque over that used in the 3.0l petrol and 2.5l diesel.

Mitsu had to lift the body 20mm to fit the gearbox in the pajero.

So Iwould guess that if the triton is a 2.8l TD, it may be the same.

Hope that helps.

Hi noddydog
The Pajero's have two types of gearboxs.
One is the alloy housing and the other is the cast iron housing.
The alloy housing unit is light weight, not as strong but cheap to overhaul and I wouldn't recommend towing with it.
The cast iron one is strong, towing not a problem but expensive to repair. Crawl under and have a look to see which one you have.
As for towing in 4th or 5th, I recommend common sense. If you are on flat ground and in free way conditions stick it in 5th but if you notice you are pushing down on the right foot drop it back to 4th.
Hope this helps
