The Errol D'Arcy Story

19 years old Errol D'Arcy lives in Kallangur and is currently fixing up an old Nissan Patrol G60.

What is amazing about this kid is that he has an aggressive form of bone cancer. While in hospital having his thigh bone removed and replaced with a titanium implant, he met a wonderful girl and they fell madly in love. Sadly, she lost her fight with cancer two months ago. They were doing up the G60 together to travel as much of Australia as they could.

Nissan YD25 engines have a history of breaking timing chains, resulting in major engine damage. When the engine is pulled down, amongst other things, the simplex vacuum pump sprocket and spline are nearly always heavily worn. Engine Australia’s Research and Development Manager, Justin Campbell, observes that, ‘The vacuum pump simplex sprocket and spline design on this engine are badly designed.

If customers want standard compression height ceramic crown pistons, then they will be special order.’ said Engine Australia National Sales Manager, Mark Bryers.

Engine Australia announces their range of 0.15 mm factory pre-topped Diesel Power Parts Japanese diesel engine pistons. A quality engine rebuild will involve the cylinder block deck being machined – usually removing between 0.10 and 0.15 mm. This in turn affects the piston protrusion height. Because most smaller bore diesel engines (up to about 110 mm bore diameter) require strict control of the piston protrusion heights, the pistons must be assembled to the engine, protrusion heights measured, the pistons removed and then the piston crowns machined.
