Ok so an update on my Patrol.....have not done anything to it for a while.

With the Dune trip just around the corner and with loads of drag racing waiting I did not want to take a chance with my already very worn clutch and decided to change it over the weekend. I have already bought a new kit from Nissan a long time ago and it is now finally installed.

I bought the car with a pirate kit in and it was already worn back then. I have now done more than 40,000km after that so it is overdue.

So quite a big job if you don't have a lift and/or a gearbox jack. So I decided to rather take out the engine. Started at 8:00 AM and had the engine back on its mountings at 14:00 same day. Took another 4 hours or so to get the wiring and piping sorted.

Some interesting things that have happened since the clutch kit was changed.
1. The clutch is about two times as soft to push in (this was expected and is common with a new clutch)
2. I used to have this rattling noise coming from the gearbox when the car is in neutral and clutch not depressed which many TD42 owners have and was said to be the gearbox gears making that noise. It is not totally gone after the clutch replacement, so I will point this to the clutch plate instead.

I did not take many pictures as I was really rushing to get the job done, but took one just as I had the engine back in its position.

Respect Michael. :salute: :salute:

I guess you've had that motor out a few times before. I'd be too frightened of screwing stuff up to do a job like that on my own... :rolling: :rolling:
