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
