Hi guys,
I just got back from local wrecker looking for some parts for my GQ, He just got a 10/98 GQ Table Top in. It has 25,000 Kms on clock.

The rear chassis was damaged so they wrote the car off. It was used in the mines.

I just wanted to let you all know incase some of you were considering a rebuild to your own motor.In my opinion, this is definately worth the $4,500.00 price tag...all genuine parts inside and only 25,000 kms on clock.

If you are interested, let me know and ill pass on the details.

Cheers AngeloI love it when you talk DIRTY !

IMHO, provided that correct maintenance procedures have been carried out, with particular emphasis on air (& fuel) filtration, a diesel engine with 25000 "hard" K's on it will be in much better condition internally than one with half as many K's "chuggin' 'round the 'burbs"....
In this instance, with so few K's, it probably wouldn't matter either way, but in the long term, I'll bet I know which one would last the longest...

Ed
I have been driving mine vehicles for 10 years and I beg to differ!
Depending on the mine and the people driving they get a hard life up to an absolute flogging would not go near one (unless it was the mine managers)

my 2¢ worth

G'day Brian,
No problems with differing opinions (that's what this forum is all about, after all), and I agree that there will be certain "variables" to take into account... (Depends how bad the "flogging" is, I suppose, but I'd be inclined to think it'd do more damage to the drivetrain than the engine itself)...
After several yrs driving trucks (fair while ago, late '60's-early '70's), and the remainder of my working life employed in agriculture, I think I can say with a degree of confidence that a diesel engine NEEDS to be "worked".. One thing they will not tolerate is long periods of "idleness", or low/no load situations (the latest hi-tech diesels may differ in this regard, I have no idea), so I will stand by my previous comments...

All true Ed but a mine site, and miners are extreamly hard on a vehicle. And unless you have experienced it you won't appreciate it.
I still find it hard to believe some of the things I have seen!!!

we just offloaded a Hilux that had only done 25K but looked like it was 10 years old.
However hard it was driven most of the site driving would have been restricted to 40 km/h or less and the highway stuff (little to talk of) would have been minimal so I'm agreeing with both Ed & Brian here but reaffirming Ed's views on the motor. Fence sitting I suppose you'd say.

Landcruser has reigned supreme over the years true, but in the last few years, maybe due to economic reasons and the extra cost of Toyotas, I am seeing a lot more Patrols on site.
Also patrols are used underground because of less emmissions?(stand to be corrected on this as I am not an underground miner).
Now If Nissan made a troopie that would be interesting!
Anyone know why don't Nissan produce one??????
