The gradual coolant leakage in the RHS from the head gasket continues to be an issue. I eliminated the top considering it had been a cylinder head gasket issue however it seems that it had been brought on by corrosion about the drinking water passage openings in each the top – these passages are fairly near towards the outdoors around the RHS from the motor. My father experienced owned the vehicle for nine many years prior to he died, but experienced not carried out the 40k stipulated because the alter interval. He clearly experienced not study the little bit about two years/40k whichever happens quicker. I presume the coolant experienced turned corrosive. I just bolted down a brand new gasket and utilized Bars Leaks to test to prevent the leaks, but ultimately determined it would be much better to complete with out it. Reduction has remained modest, but coolants with out ethylene glycol anti-freeze appear to leak much less. If the corroded steel may be changed I may have the top and block set, however it will probably be a significant occupation.

Gas usage and energy enhanced significantly following operating an injector cleaner within the car – I utilized BP Diesel GO that is additional with each refill, and it took a number of many years for your complete advantages to happen). Commuting provides eight.seven lt/100 km (32.three mpg) and also the very best I have experienced on the journey was seven.seven lt/100 km (36.six mpg). Fairly great to get a hefty (1600 kg) car without any aerodynamics, even though obviously terminal speeds do not go a lot more than ninety km/hr/. Overall performance isn’t a phrase that I would affiliate with diesel Rockys, however they do pull a load extremely nicely.

I am continuously shocked that there’s no signal of decay within the radiator or heater hoses, that are authentic (24 many years previous). I equipped a coolant degree alarm and acquired spare hoses just in the event. 1 style failing will be the self-adjusting system around the rear drum brakes- they merely do not function. Modifying them manually isn’t all of that tough as soon as you’re employed out how you can get it done, and it tends to make a obvious enhancement around the hand brake. I am also shocked that I have experienced no issues with the gas pump seals subsequent the introduction of low-sulfur diesel gas.
