    TDV8 3.6 longevity

    Iím no expert, but assume it happens when a big split occurs.

    I like to give mine a bit of right foot on a regular basis to blow out any cobwebs. I have a theory that getting revs above 4000 is beneficial for the motor.

    Another benefit is when a very small split occurs it shows up early. I gave mine a bit if right foot when the engine warning light came on. Fortunately with some more sedate driving I was able to get home and temporarily tape up the affected area.

    Then I got some great silicone hoses from Roverlord Offroad Spares. Thanks Mario. TDV8 3.6 longevity

    The 4.4's alternator is 2nd generation style like those used in the 3.0 TDV6 which seem to not suffer the early demise of the 3.6 & 2.7 alternators, probably due to their higher capacity power diodes not constantly working too close to their limits. The 4.4's is 220A.

    A cherished part of his collection. Does he know it has a DPF?

    I enjoy his commentary.

    One would have to firstly check thay they use the same comms protocol, then the mount and pulley. My son fitted a 4.4 alternator to his 3.0 TDV6 D4 which use the same comms protocol but the bracket required some honing and a free-wheeling pulley fitted instead of the 4.4's fixed pulley.

    I understand that the 3.6 replacement alternators last longer than the originals.
