New Nissan Parts (No longer available)

Hi Almal

Ek wil maar net dit daar buite sit as iemand dalk in die sop is met n Nissan part wat baie duur is en nie die prys oor die toonbank kan of wil betaal nie.

Ek het n tannie wat by Nissan in Rosslyn werk en ek kry parte by haar vir rof weg 30% goedkoper as die beste prys by n Nissan dealership, bv n TD42 cylinderhead gaan jou R7,700 kos as ek vir jou een moet kry en ek dink hy is omtrent R11,600 by n dealership as ek dit nie mis het nie. (ek het 2 weke gelede een gekoop)

Ongelukkig het hulle nie die beste sisteem daar nie en ek wag soms n paar dae om n prys te kry en dan nog weer n paar dae om die parte te kry, maar dit is nogsteeds die moetie werd as mens kyk na die besparing.

Hou maar net in gedagte dat my tannie my n guns doen en dat ek haar nie regtig wil misbruik nie, sy koop dit op haar staff account en hulle kan alles sien wat sy doen.
Wat ek prober se is, ek wil nie graag vir haar pryse aanvra vir twee filters en 6 plugs nie, maar net vir duur items waar die Nissan dealerships net belaglik is met hulle pryse.

So indien enige iemand iets nodig het, email my by michaelsteyn7@gmail.com met die part nommer van die item/items wat jy nodig het en jou voertuig se VIN nommer en ek sal jou so gou moontlik laat weet waarvoor ek dit kan kry.

Re: First Mod

Hi Gents,

Just read this article first.


http://www.safarisnorkel.com/
Grant, I get what you are saying and it is understandable that Safari makes top products which might last much longer that the no name brands that are available. This is true for all the top brands, they have been around for years and do a lot of research and testing so one can understand why their products are more expensive.

The reality is that for me personally I cannot spend R6,500 on a snorkel that will do exactly what the no name brand will do for R1,900. The biggest reason for this is that I cannot afford it... I'm sure I am not the only bloke that have to turn around cents and shop around for bargains. My "cheap" snorkel will not influence the reliability of my engine in any way so its not quite the same as installing a no name brand turbo charger or using the cheapest engine oil on the market.

So I am quite happy that there popped up companies making cheaper no name brand snorkels so that I can also pimp out my ride. :blonde:
I have fitted my 4x4direct snorkel myself and it fits perfectly on my Patrol and it really does not look or feel like a cheap low quality product. All the joins come together nicely and I will guarantee that it seals air tight.

just my personal opinion

Please keep us posted on the progress and what your plan is with the engine rebuild Christo. I agree with what you said, it must be built the right way this time.

Very interesting document on piston damage assessment and possible causes...... worth reading

Gauge Pods

Hi Gents

So I have installed a Madman EMS as well as a boost gauge on my Patrol but never had a place where I could mount them permanently.
I always wanted to get a pillar cover with built in pods, but could never find one so I decided to build my own.

So here is what I have done and I must say I am pretty pleased with the result. The gauges are not in my way at all and I don’t have to take my eyes off the road any more.... safety first.

Step 1 was to find the right spot for the gauges, I used 52mm irrigation hose to fit snugly over the gauges and used a glue gun to secure the pipes in the right place

Auto Hubs Service

Hi Gents

So as I had some problems with my hubs a while back and went through the whole process of buying a second hand one I discovered that I replaced the wrong one. Not wanting to spend more money I decided to strip the actual "broken" one to see if it is fixable and discovered that it really only needed a service. My hub got some water in at one stage and the whole thing was full of gunk and very rusty.

So here is my post on how to strip and service a auto hub on a Y61, but I think it might be the same or similar to the Y60. The photos I used here is not of my problematic hub, but just one that I serviced for the purpose of this thread.

1. remove the hub from the wheel bearing housing by removing the 6 x 8mm allen key bolts
2. once removed you will already be able to see and feel in what condition your hub is in, on mine you could see that there are problems even before I stripped it.

3. To be able to strip the hub you need to remove the thin ring that is pressed into the hub. I just tightened the hub inside the vice and knocked it out with a hammer and screw driver.

hub_2-1900.jpg

4. Here is how it looks with the ring removed

hub_3-1900.jpg

5. now you can remove the auto locking part of the hub, it basically falls out when the ring is removed

hub_4-1900.jpg

6. Here is a close up photo of how the hub looks after the auto locking mechanism has been removed. This is the actual part that locks the hub when you turn the bolt to "Lock". This hub wasnt in bad shape and was still working.

hub_5-1900.jpg

7. This is the hub housing once the mechanism has been removed

hub_6-1900.jpg

8. Locking mechanism, quite dirty....

hub_7-1900.jpg

9. Now we are half way and all that is left is a bit of elbow grease and some de greaser. I use a very strong cleaning agent called "Klear 4007" and I get it from Farm City.

hub_8-1900.jpg

10. Close up of the housing after it has been cleaned. If you look carefully you can see it has a bit of wear and tear on it, but nothing to worry about in my opinion.

hub_9-1900.jpg

11. Close up of the locking mechanism after it has been cleaned

hub_10-1900.jpg

12. Now you can lubricate everything and start to assemble. I used normal engine oil and will explain later why I used this insted of grease. Make sure when you put the locking mechanism back into the housing that the two little arms on the mechanism line up with the slots in the housing. my finger will point out the parts that need to allign in the next two photos. Once you put it in you can wiggle it a bit and you will feel it click into place

hub_11-1900.jpg
hub_12-1900.jpg

13. Installed locking mechanism

hub_13-1900.jpg

14. Now you install the auto locking mechanism, make sure the copper cir-clip is on the opposite side of the high part of the locking mechanism. (hope this sentence makes sense)

hub_14-1900.jpg

15. Now you just install the thin "locking ring" and thats that in a hat.

hub_15-1900.jpg

16. Now the last thing you can do, (thanks Christo for reminding me about this) is to put a thin layer of silicone where the auto hub bolts onto the wheel bearing housing. This wil make sure that your auto hub will stay dry inside when doing deep water and mud crossings

Re: Gauge Pods

Stefan, met die Madman is al die drade so bymekaar in 'n loom. Ek het dit onder die dash langs laat loop en daar is genoeg spasie om dit dan direk tot onder die pillar cover te laat in gaan. Ek kon agter die radio n 12v ignition draad kry en het die Madman en boost guage se krag van daar af getap.

Re: Auto Hubs Service

Pieter, ek dink hy het n seel daar. Ek het dit juis getoets toe ek die hub housing skoongemaak het......hy is water dig en nie n druppel water kom deer na die over-ride knop toe as jy hom vol maak met water. Ek het al drie die bubs wat ek het so getoets en nie een het daar gelek nie.
Ongelukkig kon ek nie daai gedeelte uit strip nie, (wel e het nie probeer nie) maar ek neem maar aan hy moet n seel he.

Ja die olie ipv grease gaan nie almal se keuse wes nie, maar ek het mar gereken dit kan nie skade doen nie en dit is die moeite werd om te toets

Re: River Trip 6-10 August 2015 AKA Die Groot Trek

For those of you who would like to see the route in google earth, please download the attached .zip file.
Unfortunately I could not upload the .kml file directly and had to zip it. Simply unzip the file and it should be a .kml file
You can just install Google earth on your PC/Laptop and double click on the file.

I calculated the route and the tar/dirt road section is 844km

Re: Can't Wait

Welcome Eddie

From what I can tell it has stock tyres. They should be fine, depending on exactly what you want to do. For me, I prefer 33" tyres. I had 32" tyres when I baught my Patrol and can feel a big improvement in grip when I went to 33". You can pop on 33's without changing anything.

Its hard to tell if it has a suspension lift on those pics, but it is not needed in my opinion if you are not going to do serious offroading where you need ground clearance. And even then the std suspension works fine
