Re: My '98 GU 4.2 TD

Jip as Cedric said it makes no difference, you just set the valve ckearance back to 0.30mm and all is back to spec and the valves will open just as far as they did the day it started for the first time

Re: My '98 GU 4.2 TD

Oom Mac, you mean where does the rocker material go which was there and now is only a dent? I believe they are "hopefully" caught up by the oil filters. This occurs over hundreds of thousends of km and even if they never went through the oil filters it will not do anything. Peter, it sounds way more...

Re: My '98 GU 4.2 TD

Cedric, yes its really easy and anyone with a angle grinder with a very fine flap disc can do it. You would be surprised how little the flap disc takes off when using it with caution. It does have that curve to it, but if you take away an even amount of material you can keep the same curve and have ...

Re: My '98 GU 4.2 TD

Christoph, I believe the head is still fine (except foe the precoms which can easily be changed) and as Cedric said the blocks are quite tough and its really straight forward to have them resleeved. And yes its really not easy know exactly what the cause was except the weaker NA pistons not holding ...

Re: My '98 GU 4.2 TD

Errol/Cedric, the injectors received new tips and were calibrated when Dustin did the turbo conversion so I dont think a faulty injector caused this. If this was a direct injection engine I would highly suspect the i jector, but not so much for the indirect injection. The injectors will however be t...

Re: My '98 GU 4.2 TD

Ok so finally got the engine out and stripped. The engine had a severe piston failure on no.3 and cracked the whole piston in half. It also had huge amounts of blowby which unfortunately caused damage on the sleeve as well. So the future for this engine is a complete rebuild. Block and cylinder head...
