Nice......

If you find the time please post some pics of the rod and crank journal when you pull her apart....

Some idea WTF caused such a catastrophic failure would be interesting also.

Cheers,

Jimmy

Common ZD30 fault in Australia was with blown pistons (in the Patrol not D22). Know of one which dropped a big end- hard to tell from looking at it whether the cap broke first or the bolt stretched. We found everthing inside the block though, nothing like this one..... Is your casualty a ZD30?

THE NAVARA SPECIALIST,

How often was that vehicle serviced and what did he mean when he said he never drove it hard? A mate of mine always says he never drives his car hard, (never going to fast), but I can assure you from traffic light to traffic light he is always in a hurry.

I have seen a hand full of d22 today that are well over 100k (all on their original engines) one on e-bay that is 173000 and the seller assures me that is the original engine in there.

Please don't get me wrong I'm not having a go at you :lol: but I would like to know how often that car was serviced.

Cheers

have a look at nav on ebay. he calls it a king cab but its a double.says engine rebuilt 2000 miles ago. look at service record he has 15 and 19000 miles between a couple of services. this is part of the problem people being confused by service book. and not servicing at 6000.
