Re: Clutch kit TD42

Hi Rudolph

Ek het vir jou n email gestuur ivm hierdie clutch kits.

I prefer the genuine Nissan kit which sells for R5,315 from the dealers. This includes the release bearing, clutch plate, and pressure plate as well as VAT. I replaced mine over the weekend and WOW what a difference!!

They should give you 10% discount if you ask nicely which makes a difference.

Re: Auto Hubs Service

Rudolph, you can take them of regardless if they are in Lock or Auto. It is just when putting them back I found its easier if they are in the Lock position as you can easaly find the spliance on the sideshaft to push iy back and line up the bolt holes.

Ryan, it does not matter which side goes where. You can swop them around no prob :thumbup:

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

TD42 turbo kits:

Now there are loads of N/A Patrols that are running great and the owners are very happy with them as is, but there are some that want that extra oomph without costing them a fortune. Rebuilding a TD42 with proper turbo spec internals, having the pump redone with a boost compensator, new injector tips and the list goes on is VERY expensive and is an overkill for many and not fit for everyone’s pocket.

Now I am in the process with the help of the all famous Mr. Tinus Lotz (aka the Turbonator) in casting our own top mount turbo manifolds and also our own stainless air boxes that are replicated off the standard ZD30/TD42T pickups via the help of Peter Connan as well as Tinus. The air boxes should fit like a glove under the bonnet and no holes need to be drilled or anything. The snorkel will also just connect up with no problem.
Keeping this in mind I am doing some tests with a couple of turbochargers and if everything goes as planned I will be able to have a “bolt on” turbo kit available to fit any TD42 N/A engine. This kit will run with no intercooler as the aim is to just get out of “donkey zone”.

This will NOT be a high performance upgrade and is aimed to give around 20 – 25% gains in power with the option to upgrade later in necessary.
The turbo will be good enough to run between 0.4 bar and 0.8 bar so will be suited for power like mentioned above and also for possible later upgrade with turbo spec internals if necessary.

The kit will typically include the following:
1. T3 spec turbo with oil feed and return pipes
2. Top mount cast manifold
3. Turbo Downpipe
4. Already made up boost pipe from turbo to intake manifold
5. Already made up intake pipe from the air box to the turbo inlet
6. Stainless steel air box
7. Madman EMS with EGT & Water temp monitoring (this is optional but HIGHLY recommended)

Total cost for this I am aiming for is R24,000 – R26,000 but will be able to see within a couple of weeks/months as I will have to do a trial run first to see what the actual costs end up being.

Watch this space for further updates……..

Re: sump kompressie. baie wit rook. en treurig

but and probably doesn't need any work done to it, unless you wish to spend a few Rands on it to put new precom chambers in, but then it will need to be skimmed

What we saying here, is that when nothing is done to the head, it is not necessary to skim it at all and can just be put back with a new head gasket?
In theory, yes, but it is really recommended to have the head checked out while it is off. It really is a good idea to have the valves faced and seated again, have them measure the valve guids and put on some new valve stem seals. :thumbup:

Re: sump kompressie. baie wit rook. en treurig

Yeah, as Michael said, It is the best thing to do, but due to the head being cast iron and not aluminium, if the funds are tight, and all was working fine before then it won't be an issue if you just put the head straight back on without a skim. Re-seating the valves and new valve stem seals don't compromise the face of the head if done with care

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Rudolph, here is a pic of the sleeves I use. They are quite afordable. Just remember they are .020 oversize on the OD so the block just need to be machined to get them in. But the engineers will know exactly what to do

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Rudolph

Good call to strip the engine and make sure everything is ok.

C2 is the piston grade number but makes no difference if it is going to be changed.
I will change the combustion chambers if it was my call, just buy everything you need from Alert. Ask for TD27 combustion chambers and pistons.

If you are considering turbo charging the engine at a later stage I will recommend getting turbo pistons so you know that the internals are up for the job. I would actually just out in turbo pistons as they can tolerate more heat than the NA pistons and believe me when I say that the NA engine can easily have higher combustion temps than a turbo engine.
the down side is that there are no turbo pistons available for the 28mm pin so you either have to resize the conrods or just stay with NA pistons.

Now with the sleeves you have a couple of options. You can either keep the current ones as is and just have the block bored one size up and get oversize pistons. (this will be the cheapest)
Another option is to get semi finish sleeves that can be bored to the correct size. this is preferred by me as they are cast iron sleeves and are very strong.
Last option is to get a sleeve kit and have that put in, these are quite scarce and you will not find it easily.

keep us posted on the build :thumbup:

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Sorry to hear about the drama, but on the up side it's all apart so now you can throw some TD27 turbo pistons in for the turbo conversion.

Re: TD42 Rebuild

You are going down the right path.... TD27 precoms fit exactly as do many other parts. Master Parts in Cape Town can also assist with this ( speak to Dean ). Not sure if there is a branch in Port Alfred though, but check prices and maybe they can courier it to you.

The small cracks in the precoms is normal, so don't stress about that, but better to replace while the motor is open anyway and they are very cheap... probably only about R70-80 each. Put them in the freezer for a few hours and leave the head at room temp. They will slot in and expand as they defrost

ZD30 Air Filters - GUD ( and some TD42 turbos)

Juice, let me know the other day that GUD is bringing in the OME equivalent of the ZD30 Air Filter.

Here are a few pics...
IMG-20170726-WA0019.jpg

IMG-20170726-WA0021.jpg

IMG-20170726-WA0020.jpg

At the moment they are selling for around R350 per filter.

What I like about these filters is that they have a nice pleat of filter paper, so therefore a lot larger surface area than some of the other air filters I have seen on here.

I currently use a filter for the Ranger, that also has a lot of pleats in its construction but has a rubber top and bottom instead of the steel top and bottom of the OME or this new GUD filter

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

Bakkie is terug van Sojo. :blonde:

Wat 'n plesier om te ry! :woo:

Alles wat gedoen is, getuig van vakmanskap.

Baie dankie Michael en Tinus vir raad, werk en "organizing".

Die "Terrain Tamer" suspensie is 'n wenner. Ek het vandag met die bakkie leeg en daarna met 'n vrag, op 'n vrek slegte grondpad gery. Hy het hom onder alle
omstandighede uitmuntend gedra. :thumbup:

Die "performance tuning" is net so 'n wenner. Die oomblik as jy begin ry, begin jy glimlag en dit word net al hoe groter hoe verder jy ry. Die "drivibility" van die bakkie
is100% beter. :thumbup:

As gevolg van die "smile" wat die bakkie op my gesig sit, noem ek hom van nou af "Garfield". Dit voel vir my kompleet ek lyk soos daardie kat ,met 'n groot glimlag op sy gesig, :biggrin: dat jy net tande sien!

Nogmaals baie dankie. Dit was 'n plesier om met julle besigheid te doen en ek kan julle enige tyd aanbeveel. :salute:

Re: TD42 Rebuild

That TD42 is going to purr like a kitten once it's all done.
On the exhaust, my previous 4.2D had a freeflow setup on it from the previous owner.
If I remember correctly it was 57mm pipe with 1 freeflow box.
It did make a difference to performance over a standard 4.2D...but not as much as a turbo will :layrubber:
Just teasing a bit :lol:
Don't stress, the turbo will come in time :thumbup:

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Very nice!! Jy gaan nou n engine he wat n leeftyd gaan hou.

Ek het vir jou n inline pomp as jy nie reg kom met jou huidige een nie.
Ek sou aanbeveel sit n VE pomp op terwyl die engine uitmekaar is dan is dit afgehandel vir toekomstige planne op te turbo. Jy moet ongelukkig ook die timong vover ruil, maar ek het ook so en vir jou :thumbup:

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Ek gaan in tussen ook die exhaust oordoen, so nou wil ek asb hoor by die guru's watter grote gaan die beste werk op die N/A vir nou, sal 'n 3" voldoende wees of gaan die engine te min back pressure hê? Sal graag wil hoor wat julle manne sê.

'n 3" pyp sal perfek werk! Ek het selfs 'n mooi groot free-flow silencer vir so 3' pyp wat hier by my rondlê wat jy verniet kan kry. Omdat my kar 'n turbo het ry ek met 'n 3" pyp sonder enige silencers, maar ek vermoed dit sal dalk bietjie raas sonder 'n turbo om dinge stil te maak.

Die konsep van "te min back pressure" is 'n afskuwelike mite en dit is ons plig om mekaar beter in te lig: "Backpressure caused by the exhaust system (consisting of the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, muffler and connecting pipes) of an automotive four-stroke engine has a negative effect on engine efficiency resulting in a decrease of power output that must be compensated by increasing fuel consumption."

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Jip nes Christo daar se, minder back preasure is beter. Hoe vinniger jy daai exhaust gas kan uit kry hoe meer krag sal jy maak.

Ek dink n freedlow sal n verskil maak op jou NA engine, maar nie so baie soos jy dink nie. Ek sal eerder die exhaust so hou en daai geld na n ander VE pomp se kant toe gooi dan is n groot probleem afgehandel.

Re: TD42 Rebuild

Hi Rudolph

Nou voel ek darem redelik sleg oor Betsie se motor. Jy moes laat weet het, ek het redelik goeie kontakte by Alert, kon gehelp het. Maar die plus side, daai motor is darem vreeslik sexy so KAAL!!

Groete

Re: Diff ratios

Not sure the forum can do this, but I am trying to attach my spreadsheet I created for working out some ratios and speeds for myself. Maybe can work for guys with some changes to suite the Patrol.

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

Ok so some more positive things happening on the turbo kits.
Today I got the first two manifolds and they are looking great.

The first 5 manifolds will sell for R3,500 and the next batch will be R3,700. They under quoted with the castings, but its still a bargain I think.
