Re: What engine is this

In my opinion past 200 000km you can bargain on suspension bushes and wheel bearings in the near future with some water hoses and belts. Budget about R30 000. A key sign would be the dreaded death wobbles that suspension bushes and bearings needs attention. Just dont skimp on those components. Check...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

Baie dankie Dit is waar. Ek het rerag mooi gedink oor die sake en die engine is net n sucker vir punishment. Hy veroorsaak sy eie stryd maar druk altyd deur. Ek het al n paar duisend kilos gery op 105 water en 600 egt’s en hy vat dit. Terwyl hy besig was om so swaar te ry het hy dit op helfde van di...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

The repairs list was extensive but Moegatle was the goal and the only way this car was going to redeem itself was to make it up Koos se Klim. First up was the fuel tank. I tried to find a replacement long range tank but no one had any second hand so I decided to repair. We have neighbor that can wel...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

At Kang the fuel situation needed attention aswell as our stomachs. While filling, the attendant asked me what is going on underneath my car? As I looked I realized the worst had happened. Because I fiddled :surprised: One of my oil cooler pipes had shaved through somewhere. Luckily I did pack Oil, ...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

Then Off we went on the next part. I tagged along with my friend and his family to the Kgalaghadi for a few days. December 2018 my friend's aircon in his hilux decided that it didn't want to cooperate. So the conditions for going in my car was simple: "your aircon better work" Now that was no proble...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

At home I only had time for a few small things.
Cupholder was on top of the list and I kept getting voltage drop to the rear battery and figured out it was the exposed connection at the fuse. So I 3D printed some solutions.
I also printed a deeper tray for the center console.

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

I drove 9 500 km in December, the good news is the old GQ made it home by itself. :blonde: It was definitely not uneventful. The first 4 500 km was quite relaxing. Lots of good gravel road, outside temperatures was very nice. At one point we were driving between Upington and Pofadder on one of those...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

Not much happened before December holidays other than general preparation, rear suspension and tires. There was one major job and that was oil coolers. Generally I like coffee but we were boiling to frequently. The easiest option was downsizing the tires, possibly the most practical solution but not...

Re: No idea where to next year???

Richtersveld is next level. Dis n ander wêreld. Doen dan sommer Ais-Ais deel van Namibie ook. Dit is heeltemal iets anders.


Daar doooooooer onder staan die bakkies. Al die pad by die stuk klip opgeklim en toe ons bo kom was daar n pad. :redface: :doh:
