  1. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine
    Good day, I've been recently experiencing the dreaded temperature rise when going up long hills, or driving in deep sand... What do you think about my viscous hub fan?: It feels firm when the car is cold. Can barely turn on its own. When the car warms up and just after I turn it off, it keeps...

    Hi All, I have a 1997 GQ Patrol with the RD28T engine, she is running very hot at the moment. When I bought the car about 3 years ago she was running a copper radiator out of a 4.2. Last year a belt snapped and got caught in the fan and went into the radiator so I replaced it with an alloy...

    Hi guys, Having an ongoing issue with my TB42 that I wanted to get some feedback on. When pushing it uphill, especially if the weather is a bit hot and I have the air-con going, the car heats up quite a bit (around 3/4 of the temp gauge). As soon as I am back on a flat stretch, it cools back...

I have replaced the...
