    Finally driving the beast!

    A couple of short clips of me driving the beast during the covid nights of 2020. I was putting some Kms on the engine for it to break in. The engine is very torquey but feels very "held back" (for the lack of better vocabulary) at high end. I guess that is the deal with 2 valve per cylinder NA diesel right? I suppose it doesn't get happy at high end unless turbo'ed. This comment aside, it is a blast to drive.





    Also, I found a picture of the only thing that made some difference in engine noise that I mentioned previously, some sticky foam around the square airbox junction. That really brought the noise some notches down. Later down the road, when I start to proper sound deaden the cab, I will add some more layers or maybe a thicker sticky foam tape to seal this some more.

    As you can see from the videos, my windshield is pretty scratched... I will attempt glass polishing to see if it gets any better otherwise, go through the hassle of sourcing something big, heavy and fragile...

    Clutch

    Clutch seemed to be in good condition, fibers on the friction material still apparent, some decent amount of material between the rivets and the surface, so I kept it.

    The clutch bearing on the other hand had a "sandy" feeling to it. So I sourced a new one. Curiously enough, I found ONE BEARING in country.

    Clutch has a good grip and hasn't slip for a second, so good decision to save that money. I have noticed a clutch or transmission related noise, though. Sometimes when idling I hear rattling noises from the clutch/transmission, like it was flapping/rattling inside. When lightly touching he clutch pedal, the noise disappears. Bearing is brand new, so it is almost like if the fork is a millimetre loose of something.

    Steering Wheel

    Good morning mates! Let's talk about the steering wheel. The poor bastard has seen better days, I hope. If not, it is for sure going to see'em better now.

    This is how it looked:

    20191229_233239.jpg

    Horn piece is missing the solid plastic center piece that presses onto the horn springs. It also had some strange white shavings which I hope were from the broken/missing center piece and not from something once stashed there. But this is all past now.
    20191229_233255.jpg

    20191229_233314.jpg

    Gave it a good soapy bath, cleaned contacts, etc. I still have to create something to be between the horn springs and the flexible cover. I am thinking about carving something out of EVA.

    Took the steering wheel to a place that do these types of restorations. They took part of the foam from another (wreck/junk) wheel to complete what was missing in mine, glued it and then covered it all with genuine leather.

    Man! How good it feels to the touch now!

    Somebody else is beginning to enjoy staying on the Patrol, listening to his tunes!

    I am not the only one imagining me relaxing behind the wheel and the Patrol cruising the roads into memorable destinations. The green guy does that as well and here you can see him so relaxed he is going back to Bruce Banner config mode.

    And sometimes one gotta rush to take a pee...

    Exaust

    With a driveable car, its time to hear it singing and notice what notes are out of place in that melody. Easiest one to notice was some squeaking from the exhaust piping. Pushing the tailpipe with my foot, I could notice it swinging loose. Went under the car to search for any hook missing its rubber hanger but actually found a broken bracket. That one was an easy fix/weld.

    20190804_141001.jpg


    Then, the loud engine noises coming from the open transmission tunnel were much related to the flexible steel joint being torn. Took it to a muffler shop and got the flex joint replaced by a new one.

    Exhaust test: I have no reference for standard/OEM exaust NA TD42 noise as 99% of the YouTube videos when searching for such thing are either direct pipe or turbo exhaust sounds. Also, notice the very little smoke when sending it at 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I had nowhere close to test a full send up to 5th. With nothing to compare, I BELIEVE it is sounding and smoking properly. Please let me know what you good folks judge of it in terms of sound and smoke.

    Very hard to see and hear properly off my crappy little icrapple phone BZ Mate but appears like it’s hauling pretty well to my nuffy knowledge and senses
    Top secret…….Australian’s have for decades been religiously installing OEM 76.5C Tropical thermostats in our TD42 engines across this massive continent, foolishly (guilty too) even in southern mountains with snow atop.
    Fact: There is 3 x OEM thermostat variants available, 76.5C / 82C / 88C and all have the exact same top end maximum temperature tested once fully open. Unsure of your yearly climate there in Brazil but it is definitely worth running a suitable TS to suit (seasonal changeovers maybe required) to have your lowest operating temperature somewhere greater than 85C with a hopeful system average of 92C which is truly their “Sweet Spot” for power & efficiency

    Rear suspension clunks

    Driving around, I could hear some nasty clunks when accelerating/decelerating, either suspension or driveline related. Mounted a camera on the frame cross-member and took it for a ride. Shitty suspension bushes were the problem. I was surprised on how much it was allowing the pinion angle to change.



    So, next battle to fight, would be to completely overhaul the suspension.
