I just bought my first TD 100 series, having only owned the 1hz model for the past 15 years, Should I treat it differently to the others.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers Steve.

After 180k klms in mine the things to look out for 1 replace the fan with a 78 series I also run an alloy plate from b\bar to suspension member to prevent further splashes 2 cable tie all those small bunches of fine wires above the inlet manifold as they vibrate thu and you will be in limp home mode 3 If you spin the front wheels and they suddenly get grip you will break the front diff, drop front drive shaft and remove drive plates from front wheels so you can drive it to somewhere reasonable for repair. 4 Replace steering rack bushes at around 100k with excellent kit from Fulcrum at about $80 fitted with alignment, previously you had to replace the rack about $3500. 5 After a few water xings all the sound deadening material will fall down onto the exhaust lots of smoke could be a real issue in a petrol vehicle 6 The first of the series 2 had an issue with dash instruments and sub tanks instrument clusters were replaced under warranty. Should all have been done by now. Apart from these issues been very happy with an excellent vehicle. 180k klms 4 years. Cheers Rob Berrill

I guess you've bought the auto :-))

Treat it hard. They go better, the harder they're driven.
You won't need to change the oil as often.

Recently bought a manual 100TD as well after 1HZ80. Love it! I use better oil now - Castrol Tection J-Max - and will still change it at 5k intervals.

Apart from that difference I run it the same as the old one with regular oil/air/fuel filter changes and enjoy the much better power and economy.

Will probably chuck an ATS lift in her this year.

Steve,
Also, the fan has a habit of driving itself into the radiator through relatively shallow water. The Cape York guys know it well. I'm not sure what's the solution.

I have the radiator problem fixed, all you need to do is get some 20mm mesh cut to size and fix it between the radiator and the fan cowling.

Cheers Steve.

that mesh idea dosen't sound to bad, might have to have a look under the bonnet this weekend and see how to mount it, how did you mount yours, or is it removable, trying to imagine what you've done without looking under the bonnet at the moment. got any pics of your setup.
i snapped a fin off my fan into the radiator on a shallow crossing up the cape in 2006, luckily by some miracle it didn't hole the radiator.

Mine happened twice at Cape York and Kosiusko NP after a suspension mod. Luckily the Kosiusko incident didn't hole the radiator.

I believe it was caused when the bash plate was dropped at the front using 1" spacers creating a gap as part of the mod.

The spacers have now been removed and the gap closed.
I have not had any problems since with plenty of water crossings.

No problems apart from the front diff that is. ;
That's another story.

Steve

I wouldn't mind a picture of your mesh set-up either. Sounds like a good idea.

Without pulling it apart the photos don't do justice, so when I do the new car I will post a stage by stage way to do it.

I will do it soon as its not in the driveway as yet.

Cheers Steve.

Steve,

i have also come close to holing the radiator,nice round ring in it from fan blade edges.dont know how it didnt put a hole in it!as for solution i couldnt really come up with one so i will look at yours!having a plate between the b/bar and existing front end plate makes a big difference also.after bashing the auto sump in i will make one for it as well.cheers Paul
