Re: 2007 Nissan Patrol 4.8 GRX Timing Chain Replacement

Sounds like the tensioner rather than the chain itself? And since that is oil-pressure driven, I think the problem is related to the oil or the oil pressure. Did it ever make the noise before the oil change? If not, perhaps it doesn't like the Magnatec? Alternatively, perhaps there is a bit of sludg...

You need to do a hell of a lot of dicing and crop circles in the river to need extra fuel for this one.

I don't think it's a service part? IE, I don't think it will need looking at before your first engine rebuild?

Re: The mechanical workings of my long distance / sub fuel tank.

Frans, not nocking your choices, but I come from a Ford family... I have owned several modified cars, and modified several myself, but i must be honest, they have never been more reliable than factory. They may have had other advantages, but improved reliability was never one. And for the stated use...

Re: The mechanical workings of my long distance / sub fuel tank.

Re: Diff Gaurds

I make and sell diff guards, front bash plates (mostly protecting the steering damper and drag link) and transfer case skidplates.

I also do rock sliders.

Re: Oil seal on the front diff.

Confusing indeed. I have not worked on a Safari yet, but the oils seal is definitely present on my Y60 and the Y61's as well. On the other hand, it certainly doesn't look like there is a journal on that shaft for one to seal on... Couple of guys who may be able to help: 1) Graham. zero83 4one7 75zer...
