    Thanks, mates. I have a feeling it could be a bit of both. Since I didn't notice it happening before I swapped the alternator, I may throw the old one back on to see if it still does it. If it...
  2. What would cause a pulsating electrical system on RD28ETi?

    I've been noticing an unusual occurrence on my ride recently. I just recently swapped out my alternator/generator (depending on where you are from) and now it seems like the system is overloaded at...

    Just to clarify since I forgot to include it in the first post, I have a 1999 GU RD28ETi

    Thanks, Growler. Unfortunately the search function isn't working on forum for me at this time and I can't follow your link or do a search. Will try later. Maybe it will sort itself out.
  6. Diff lock light coming on randomly and staying on?

    Mates. Last week I drove my last trip back up our winter road which is now thawing and degenerating quickly. Total distance was about 360km of a combo of mud, slush, ice and snow. Thankfully the...

    Well looks like I'm going to pass on this one for the time being. The guy was willing to negotiate the price of an overhaul, but the main issue is time right now. I haven't been able to get my...

    Thought about a Toyota 4.2. I think it's the 1Hz motor? I know they are extremely reliable as well. Not sure which one would be the most reliable - Nissan TD42 or Toyota 4.2?

    Yup. I need the ultimate in dependability up where I am, not crazy HP and torque. Our vehicle taxes over here are based on engine HP, anything over 250hp is ridiculously expensive. Hence the...

    4.2s can be found, because there are a lot of swaps from the ZD30. Almost every Patrol you see with a 4.2 is a swap. Very rare to find one with a factory 4.2.

    It honestly doesn't matter too much...

    Yeah it sounded like a good offer, but I can't ignore the diagnostic results. If I can get it cheap, I may still buy it and overhaul it, then drop it in.

    Numbers dropped off when the engine was warmed up. Compression dropped to 23 in some cylinders. Mechanic did a wet test and the promptly rose, thus indicating at a minimum a piston ring problem. Will...

    He just sent these results. Test done on a cold engine after adjusting the valves and lifters. He is warming the engine up now and will retest when up to operating temp

    Thanks mate for the input. I'm having the mechanic adjust the valves today and then retest, so I'll update on the findings when I get the new readings.

    Yes it was hot/warm. Wasn't it supposed to be?

    I'm not worried about the Ks on it. I'm a bit more concerned about the low compression readings. When I bought my RD I had one cylinder with a very low reading and it wound up costing me a complete...

    Yes. The engine was hot when the test was done - it had just been driven over to the shop. I'm having him go back today and get the valves and lifters adjusted today and then will retest the...

    Anyone have any input on the compression readings I posted earlier? Is the engine worth it or am I looking at a dud?

    Ok, in the process of having the diagnostics run on the 4.2 I am considering swapping in. Here are the numbers:

    Compression
    1 = 25 bar / 362.59 psi
    2 = 27 bar / 391.6 psi
    3 = 29 bar / 420.6...

    Another thing that I just thought of, which isn't a big deal, but something else to consider. I would be going from a turbo engine to a N/A 4.2, meaning I no longer need my boost gauge. I have an...
  22. I will do the full swap with the gearbox and rear...

    I will do the full swap with the gearbox and rear diff off the donor car. I'm running 33s so the standard diff from the TD is 4.11 I believe so it should work well. Anything else I'm overlooking?

    Would the radiator from my RD be adequate or do I need a different one? Luckily our weather here is more severe cold than severe heat. We will get up to 30C or maybe a bit higher but that will only...

    Another update on the TD - the guy who offered it said it starts with 1/2 a crank in summer and winter at -40C as long as there is fuel and battery power. Have set it up with my mechanic to do a...

    Thanks, mate. Working to get a compression test done soon. The guy I would get it from ran it for a while in his own Patrol (40k kms) without any problems, but ran into registration problems with...
