    TD42 Water Pump & Timing Cover Coolant Leak Cost

    Hey Guys,

    So the mechanic confirmed that I have a coolant leak from my water pump, front of timing cover and rear of timing cover on my 1989 TD42.
    Now he said its a bloody costly job but never said how much.

    I'm not one to tackle it myself so I was wondering how much it would cost to reseal the timing cover both front and rear as well as the water pump? (to get a mechanic to do it)

    What are the chances of severe corrosion or anything on it?
    Could it potentially make the job cheaper if I removed the engine for the mechanic?

    Thanks in advance.

    Its a pretty basic job mate. @Winnie has a thread somewhere where he has taken all that off. Buy a new water pump and tackle it yourself if you have even half skills mate. we will help you with any questions no probs.
    Its a Nissan! =====> Its a Keeper!! ....... Got a TD42 in it BONUS!! ....... I'm a lucky bugger! I've got 2 of em!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    If you are considering removing the engine to help then you are surely skilled enough to take it on.
    The only issue I had is removing the cone-lock on the crank that holds the harmonic balancer on. It is a real bastard to get to unlock, start soaking it in wd40 now!

    Maybe, just maybe I am haha.
    Was only going to remove it to either body swap the engine or make it cheaper to do.

    Just a look through your thread Winnie, how long did it end up taking you?
    I got told you had to remove the IP to get the timing backplate off?

    Cheers

    You can leave it bolted to the engine which means you do not have to re-time it.
    As for time I'm not really sure as I spent an hour here and there on it over a fair time. If you have all the tools and are more prepared than I was you can certainly do it in a weekend.
