Hey Guys and Girls,

I have a friend with a 2001 GU Patrol, after 460,000 tortured km's the ZD30 has grenaded. Can anyone offer an idea of what it would be worth as a shell. Its completely immaculate aside from the engine now, lol.

Or would anyone have an idea of where to and how much to get another ZD30 for it as she really would prefer to hold onto it if she can.

Cheers Doug

It might be worth talking to a museum for that engine! Longest lasting zd30 ever.

Theres a 2005 Gu Z30 engine complete with everything for $7k in the classifieds on here under engines page 6.
7 grand may be a reasonable $ to spend to bring everything ( turbo, injector pump, injectors etc back to 90,000kms and this would be a straight forward and low cost install. (ie a new short motor may be cheaper to buy but lots more $ at the workshop)

Cheers SOLO

I dont think that after 460,000km of service the tag of grenade is fair.
Depending how long your friend plans of keeping the thing you might want to try a second hand engine from the wrekers

It'd be interesting to know whether it's the usual holed pistons or something else that has worn out.

Cheers

You shouldn't have to spend more than $4-5 grand on a good second hand engine. I sold mine to a wholesaler for $2500 and it only had 100,000 k's. Could of got $4k for it if I took it to them running.
wrecker on frankston/dande road had a grenade for $11k "complete with everything" the bit of cardboard taped to it said... Funny, it was only there a week or 2...

I bought a ZD30 from Shreck through this forum just at the end of last year for $2K - intercooler turbo etc etc - 170000Km on it, I did the big swop over and flicked it! So you may be able to get out with out too much coin down.
