Re: Electronic Ignition

Agree, this is a very good mod to do, just keep your points and things you take out in the tool box just for incase you need them in the bush one day... QQQ Have also done the mod and it works perfect. Contact Offshore Marine International, 021 786 1007, omiintl@mweb.co.za. it will set you back at about R1100.

Re: Sojo Auotmotive....... the TD42 one stop shop

I'm going to watch this space! My TD42 has a headgasket leak, well I hope it is only the gasket. Coming off 10th July, after that I will be in the market for a "bolt on" turbo kit like this for the TD42 N/A!

Re: My GU 4.2 Turbo Diesel

Jammer om te hoor van die dilemma met die verkeerde pistons, wys nou maar net soos jy sê, mens moet maar net die regte parte gebruik vir die regte applikasie.

Sterkte met die herbou, hy gaan verseker sterker wees as enige ander TD42 na die episode. :woo: QQQ

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Time for an update again, the block is at the engineering shop, busy to fit the new sleeves, and as I have the silvertop motor the conrods need to be resized from 28mm to 30mm to accommodate the turbo pistons. This is also in process to be resized. The new precom's is installed and the head is ready to be put together.

The inline fuel pump is in for calibration and bad news come back that it is in a bad state and in need of a full overhaul, need to get more detail on what is all wrong, but at this stage news is it is badly worn out as well as the injectors needs an overhaul.

Just also want to thank Dustin helping out to get the new Clutch kit sorted and couriered from PE to Port Alfred, I owe you one! QQQ

On the down side, I have to put the installation of the turbo on hold for a while, main reason is finances as we in the process of buying another property and rebuilding the engine cost is getting high, so need to save up again.

Upside, I'm going to have a brand new TD42 motor that will last for ever. :thumbup:

Will keep you updated on the progress. Excited to drive this beast again! I know it is still a N/A. :rolleyes:

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Below is a few pictures of the resizing of the conrod small ends to fit the new pistons. It is very interesting to see all the engineering work being done, for me that does not see this type of thing every day.

Hope it helps others as well. :thumbup:
