Re: New Member

For sure. I can either cut it to CD for you, or If you are nearer to Kempton Park, Kobus ( Herrie here on the forum ) can probably give you a copy. I bought the Max Ellery service manual from "Kalahari.com" a few years back and used both to get the best info. I can also send the electronic manual via "transferbigfiles.com" but its about 170Mb for the GU model. I can send that to you now if you want.

Oompie Mac, jy moet fokus! Hy het daai trollie met 'n stukkende enjin gekoop, en is nog besig om hom reg te maak. So hy kan nog nie aksie-fotos plak nie?

Michael, laai sommer die manual hier af: http://grosjean.pierre.free.fr/Y61%204, ... 9e-y61cg3/

Re: Air cleaner for 4.2TD

I have 2 photos of the installation. Some breather pipes were not connected yet.

I use Donaldson type aircleaners because dirt is not welcome in any engine. Never. Performance might suffer but the engine will last.

This is on the gq with the transplant tb45e engine.
I used the thumbsuck selection method and used a 90mm outlet standard Donaldson cyclone air cleaner. It just fits in under the bonnet and I custom built the bracket for mounting onto the wheel well. The only drawback is that I have to loosen the mount clamps to get to the cartridge for cleaning.

The positioning made for minimal bends and virtually straight pipes in and out. The air gets sucked in from the original hole in the fender , so water does not easily gets in there. Also , the big inlet pipe is at an angle and with low engine speed , water will most likely not get drawn in. On this type , all the air is drawn in at the inlet pipe , so snorkel will work.

The change in pipe configuration played havoc with the engine management. I used the same air mass sensor housing and sensor , but the air flow patterns made no sense to the sensor.
Two hours of remapping by Maus and all was well again.

Those filters are used by most big engines. Look at the big generator sets and air compressors as well as most industrial earthmoving machines.

Re: Diesel Patrol 90s

I had the previlage to be taken for a ride in Michaels 4.2TD. That thing pulls like mad. He might be a good guy to compare notes with when it comes to the turbo bit. His engine was not a turbo 4.2. He made it a turbo 4.2 With all the correct inners. Those 4.2's are awsome.

Cedric, know I know why you are so in love with your maiden. :thumbup:

Car parts Database...online version

I have been using the following lately to get info on parts.

https://partsouq.com/en/catalog/genuine/locate?c=ne1210

They seemed to have updated the catalogue to around 2012 now, I know this as I can locate my car by VIN from the above link, instead of drilling down to my model.

Also has other brands, and fairly old listed vehicles too, my 20 year old BMW showed up, but BMW has been available on the web for a long while now.

Re: "HOW TO" COLUMN

Hi Michael

Die program werk baie lekker. Verander net die getal in die naam na die pixels wat jy die foto wil he en daar het jy dit. Profile pic moet 120 x 120 wees, so kon dit maklik doen net om die 1900 te verander na 120.

Re: Radius Arm Bushes DIY

Russ, due to something Clem asked me for, I have been investigating rubber bushes and how they SHOULD be manufactured. I will explain the two processes, so sorry if this gets a bit long-winded and technical, but somebody may get some use out of this and I think it might put your mind a little bit at rest on your question.

The cheap (and incorrect) way of making these bushes, and unfortunately also the one all local manufacturers I know about use, is to simply make a jig to hold the two yubes in position, then apply some bonding agent to the correct areas, and then insert the rubber (rubber or EPDM is softened with heat and pressed in, poly is mixed and poured) into the gap between the two tubes. The assembly is then placed in an oven or autoclave to cure. Simple and easy.

The problem is that rubber, and to a lesser extent polyurethane, shrinks while curing. So you end up with a situation where the bonding agent is under extreme tensile stress, and it invariably fails pretty soon.

The right way to do it is to make a seperate mold, with sizes very carefully calculated. The whole mould is coated with relaesa agent, the rubber or poly is inserted and cured, then removed from the mold. The sleeves are manufactured especially with rough surfaces where it will contact the rubber. Now the inner tube is cooled in liquid nitrogen, and the rubber is heated, then dropped over the inner sleeve. Then the process is reversed, with the rubber and inner sleeve assembly chilled in liquid nitrogen, and the outer sleeve heated and slipped over.

If the calculations for the mold were done correctly, you now have an asembly where the rubber is under pretty serious compressive stress, and this is what holds it all together. No bonding agent.

Thus in theory, if these fancy poly bushes have enough interference with the hole in the suspension arm, those bushes will not move, ever. And you have gained a little bit of flex because your rubber section is effectively thicker due to the omission of the outer sleeve (although probably not over a standard bush because the inner sleeve here is much thicker.

My major concern is with the polyurethane itself. I have been told that poly doesn't handle high-force vibration well, eventually disintigrating. And this exactly the type of loading expected in this application.

So personally I prefer drop-boxes or X-links or some other method to recover the caster angle without having to move away from concentric rubber bushes.

Re: n kans om die noord kaap se duine te ry ....

Dag Maats.

Was rukkie lank buite sein gewees, en is verlig om te sien dat daar soveel belangstelling is. Alex baja beslis n famielie naweek. Ons almal geniet die duine ry baja. Russ, een van my vriende het ook n pick up Patrol, en hy het altwee die roetes gery. Flex is glad nie belangerik nie, net momentum en n banddruk van 0.5 bar. En as dit moet kan ons tot 0.4 ook ry. Ons gaan baja lekker kamp, en sal vir julle koordinate opsit sodat julle kan kyk op google waar die plek is. Net voorstel, moet asb nie die Kimberley, Griekwastad pad in die donker ry nie, daar is verskriklik baja Kudu's op daai pad, en veral nou in die winter kom hulle al nader aan die pad. Onthou dat ons hout moet saamvat, en die naaste dorp is Groblershoop wat 40km weg is. So bring maar alles saam soos ys en proviant. Petrol moet volgemaak word by Griekwastad. En dan moet julle toelaat vir so 80km se speel op die sand teen so 4km/ lt. Sal ook vir julle se hoe ver dit is van Griekwastad tot by die kampplek. Ek skat dat dit so 200km is. Doen beplanning daarvolgens.

Groete

Re: DYNO day 30 MEI 2015

I wonder why IanT is so quiet?

Hahahahahahaha.... Ian, come now brother.... we still like you. But my Iron Maiden and Michael's Patrol are VERY similar, with maybe 0.1 bar difference in boost pressure. So the figures speak very loud this morning !!!

Michael those are some impressive figures mate !!!

Re: Patrol 4.2 TD - mods for more power

Thanks Tinus.....I've just called about the bumper.
They have one in stock and are keeping one back for me :biggrin:
I wasn't originally going to go with a new bumper, but I think it makes such a big difference to the look of the vehicle, and also to have some decent recovery and hi-lift jacking points is a big advantage.

Wow Michael, your intercooler and bumper mods look fantastic.

Re: Steering shake with MT's.

I had a wabble at around 80km/h. Very irritating. After many tyre changes and balancing with short term success Micheal came to my rescue. He helped and showed me how to check the bearings. We found the passenger side very loose. We tightened it with a very clever tool made by Peter. We then went on to check the driver side. This one was ok. So I drove the car today and it was glorious. Just bear in mind my car has only done 38000km. so milleage is not a factor I would say.

Thanx again Micheal :clap:

Re: EGT for 3.0l

Normal low carbon steel start going from a body centred cubic structure to a face centered cubic structure as soon as it starts crossing 723 degrees celcius. This start turning it from perlite to austenite. Austenite (solid solution austenite is past 910 degrees celcius) is where you heat steal for tempering. Annealing ext. This is where it becomes hard. But if you cool it down quickly. It turns to maltensite. Then it becomes brittle. So imagine your engine going from 300 to 800 and back to 300degrees in seconds while you drive. What does it do to you components. Luckely pistons are not made of pure iron. But it consits of atleast 53% iron. Thats why going higher then 650 is no good. At 650 nothing changes. It just expands and cools down without any molucaler or atomic effets.

So yes. If that doesnt convince you. Then try google :lol:

Re: Patrol versus cruiser weekend 20 mei 2016 at moegatle

Aag nee Alex ....just pull in dude .....kom nou ... :salute:


Yes, but this whole ZD30 thing made me feel so alien again :argument:

I will be there. Cannot promise the family to come along too yet.



Alex, I guess everyone has a right to their opinion. All I ask is that you respect the fact that others on this forum still happely drive their ZD30's. Just as you would still like to be respected for driving your Patrol as it is now. QQQ

Its not nice to hear every other day how crap your Patrol is, and that on a Patrol forum.......
I apologise if I came down hard on you.

brake pads for Patrols

Just want to start a thread that can make a search a little easier when it comes to brake pads for the Patrol. Please add to this if you have alternate part numbers or part numbers for the 4.8's. Please lets keep this as an INFO page and not for debating which it better or worse.

I know that the 4.8 pads are different to the 4.5 & 4.2 petrol as well as the 3.0 & 4.2 diesel.

So for all Patrols other than 4.8's see below .

For the rear, the cheapest and easiest to fit is a Mazda Etude front brake pad ( I have used both Ferodo Platinum and the ATE brands )
Ferodo FDB1455-PLA
There is a little filing needed on the ears to get it to slide in the slots of the caliper, but nothing that anybody cannot do with ease.

Front pads I again have used Ferodo and ATE.
Ferodo FDB1577)
