Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Well I took the 3.0 for a test today ... They said it just needed a new battery, but it did start straight away this time. I did notice that the radiator cradle was welded to the body. So now I guess it's probably been in a smack. Couldn't have been too bad but not sure why it would have been welded...

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Morning Gents Out of curiousity now, Michael - what is the going cost to do the conversion? Are they refurbed turbos or everything new. What all does it involve. I'm guessing the following: Different exhaust manifold. Turbo Tubing Pistons Rings EGT Sensor/Gauge Larger Air box Intercooler Additional ...

Re: Nissan Patrol 3.0TD 2005 model

The one in East London wouldn't start when I went to check it out. Will pop back past there and try again. Not the greatest condition though.

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Cedric. Your comment about the missing socket go me thinking. Surely all the TD42 motors sound the same regards of whether they have a turbo or not?! What does the ZD30 sound like? There's a ZD30 Y61 here in East London which I went to look at. They couldn't get it started so didn't hear what it sou...

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Haha. I must be honest here. I know very little about diesels. Never owned one. Hence one of the main reasons for going for simple one with no turbo. I replaced a turbo on a mazda 2.5 once which I didn't enjoy.

Always thought of these NA diesels as tractor motors, which they are ... haha.

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Never thought to crank it over empty to empty the filters. That's a nice tip!

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Thanks cedric

I've been using Delo 400 for a couple of year now, so quite familiar with it and quite easy to get.

How many litres of each would it take? Assuming about 7-8 for the engine. Hope they not like the hilux's that have different sumps and I can't never remember which I have ...

Cheers

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Thanks Rudolph

I might very well take you up on that. Is there much difference in the Y60 and Y61 drivetrain? Heard one thing to also check are the axle seals I believe?! Not sure where to look. Perhaps I could check yours if that same.
