    I just purchased a mitsubishi mini truck and i am trying to find out what motor is in it. It is a 3 cylinder.
    I have tried to decode the vin but it says invalid. Please help anyone with knowledge. Also when i drive it about 23 mph gov. Light comes on.

    Someone with more earned certainly than have can confirm or deny, but if it's a left hand drive US market U14t I believe no matter the year it should have a 3g81 550cc motor.

    There's a thread you can post in to request info on the governor, there are also several threads discussing standalone ignition systems. If you're stuck with a 3 speed you won't get it to go much faster even without the governor, mine is partly bypassed but still runs out of RPMs at about 30, and it's smoking horribly past 22 or so anyway. I may take the trans apart and try to just freehand the teeth onto 4th gear using the syncro as a template.
