    Default En daar is dit nou... My beurt!

    En daar kry die Pienk Ouvrou 'n head/top siekte! Ai dis hartseer. Veral na sy nou al oor die 300k gedoen het sonder enige issues. En net na ons byna 6000 km probleemvrye om-die-Kaap trip met die campervaantjie!

    Guestimate skade is minimum 8000 tot omtrent 20000, afhangende van wat presies gepoefies het. Gasket goete alleen of top in sy ma in.

    Julle moet maar saam bid asb tog. Ek voel so kaal sonder die ou ding!!!

    Not sure I understand what a Pienk Ouvrou 'n head/top siekte! is, but it sounds like the legendary Kz-TE head failure has struck.

    Good opportunity to convert the Kz-TE to a D-4D.

    Call Gerhard at SAC Diesel Centurion - he's done a lot of research into this...

    Slegs 300k? maybe het jy 'n dud gekoop

    net 'n grappie

    So Manny, is the KZTE's bottom end the same as the D4D? Only the head that differs?

    Unless it overheated, you might just have to change the top gasket?

    Get the head off, take it to a reputable cylinder head specialist, let them check it out.

    Hope it turns out to be something simple.

    300k is really just "run in"

    Thanks Deon. She fortunately did not overheat - it all started with a split second delay when I started up. Then heat gauge started to climb, stopped immediately. And yes, 300k is just 'lekker los'!!

    Hi all. I am back in business!!!

    I replaced the whole top after a few heart attacks due to the quotes, like 21000 for a bare head with gaskets from the stealers to 75000 for a D4D transplant to one guys that asked 15000 labour to swap old head with new replacement head.

    I then bought one for just over 8000, complete with everything installed, a gasket set, new top bolts, had the injectors checked (160!) and did it myself when I had time.

    So, all-in-all it cost me a third of what the original quote was and 7 times less than a D4D transplant!!

    It was a joyous moment when she purred again, I kid you not!

    So, bring it on man!!!
