  • **WARNING **RED DUST ON COILS(picS)

    http://forums.gtrcanada.com/viewtopic.php?t=6006
    It's only a matter of time before it happens to you.If you see red dust on your coils you got some serious problems.That's right...get off the computer pull off your coils and take a look.If there is red dust on them you'll thank me

      Ya, I saw it for myself. Burton is the guy who rebuilt my motor and taking out Jasons. Said the tensioner corroded and the dust was blown up and over the coils.

        If you own an skyline and haven't changed this bearing with your timing belt by now and this hasn't happened.....your very lucky.It happened to me in less than 2,000 KM's after I got the car(car only has 110,000 KM's). This same red dust was on the original coils too.This should be stickied somewhere for people thinkng about buying one of these cars.I hope my misfortune can prevent this for someone alse.

              So that's the idler tension pulley we're looking at? Does the red dust get up there even if you have the cover on, or only if you have the cover over the coil well off? How hard did you find the job to get to the pulley?

                The timing belt cover would have to come off and you would see the timing belt running between these two bearings.My Nissan covers were on so if the covers were off I don't think it would be any dust....but the dust was from the rusted bearing so you would see it on the bearing.If you haven't changed these bearings change them now!This has been a very expensive ordeal and really hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.And to answer Nimonewfs question,they did make a differance.The car revved sooo much smoother through the power band.Some people say they are a waste of money,but I don't think so.As for the power gains I'll find out in a few months when my new engine is broken in.

                    Yeah, when I bought my timing belt and other stuff from RBMotoring they suggested I change all the timing belt pullies as well as the rad and heater hoses, as they wear out all the time. I bought all that stuff and had it for sale here. No one even noticed. In the end they all went for a song to Qualthar.

                        Does this apply as a common problem for RB20 as well?

                          Well, they will have the same tensiometer so the warning should also be considered
