!KZ engines sigh

Postby geckoadventure » Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:39 pm

Lend my friend my 1KZ LC II for the weekend. Comes back home on a flatbed overheated coming downhill at idle, the cheap china radiator looks like it split and has caused a massive overheat. Sigh cry.

It was all prepared ready for sale too sigh.

Won't know whats wrong till it's pulled apart late this week but suspect the head is gone yet again.. Its CNY my workshop is closed until Thursday at least.

God I hate these 1KZ engines gimme a 13B-T anyday.

There are many many horror stories about chinese rads, in pretty much all makes.... factory radiators, no matter what make are the best option.
