    The Car: TD42 Factory Turbo Blacktop Hey all you crazy car nerds, I’m in the process of dismantling my head, just need to remove the bolts and exhaust manifold.

    Hello! I'm looking for the information if it is possible to swap head from Y61 to Y60 RD28. Of course, I will resign from the Y61 vacuum, and install the Y60 head cover, keeping Y60 vacuum pump in place (alternator). What about other things? Will it work? :-) Best Regards, Maciej, from Poland

    Runaway engine and resultant problems So I've done a whole heap of reading and research and can't seem to find the answers I'm looking for, so I thought I would throw it out there to the wisdom of the patrollers out there. So we had decided to do a trip at Christmas with a friend from...

    G'day guys n girls, Thought i would post up the custom job I have just completed on my GU. I recently decided the extremely average factory deck had to go so i ran off and bought a Sony mp3/usb deck. Then obviously an aftermarket single DIN head unit wont fill the GU's standard dash. So i...

    I've just had the engine rebuilt in my ZD30 - only the second time ever I've paid someone else to do an engine for me. I have looked at the cracking patterns in all four chambers of my old head, and suggest that the cracks are caused by localised overheating, specifically from glow plug...
