Oom Mac, glad your Patrol is running like it should again :thumbup:

Just some history on what happened to his Patrol engine after the head was replaced by another company a while back.
A pirate head was purchased as a result of Nissans MAD prices on cylinder heads and what I can only call a combenation of under tightening of head bolts and not as food quality heads as the OEM had the following impact on the engine.

Four combustion chambers came loose and two was so loose they fell out as the head was lifted up. The gaskit was blown exactly where the two very loose ones were and a heat spot was created because the combustion gas could now leak between the head and the combustion chamber.

As a result the two pistons melted on the corners where the combustion chamber sits.

The injectors was also installed without injector cooling tips and this caused the tips to over heat badly and all had to be replaced.

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:
