This little guy seems to have snuck in! Can't blame him for wanting to be a Patrol! :rolling:

Re: FOR SALE : 1998 Nissan Patrol 4500 GL

Sorry to be a party-pooper Petri,

but there is one picture above showing the interior, which is not from a Patrol.
It only has one gear lever, and the steering wheel is most definitely not a Patrol's either.

Re: Patrols on Youtube

Old vs new, I think it was clear to me...

New won the mud holes
Old won the rocks at angle.

Prophetic and wise words by Jocko at 54m32sec, “this is CV territory...”
But with that much power, once the front wheels dropped back and got traction again, no CV would have held.

Re: Patrols on Youtube

Hi Gents The latest episode from the guys at 4WD Action in Australia includes a couple of Patrols. A ZD30 GU and a supercharged Y62 towing a camper that sounds great until it breaks both CV's and power steering lines. Have a watch and add your favourite Patrol videos https://youtu.be/RbehxeghdQA Mo...

Re: Suzuki Jimny recovers Land Cruiser towing a Bush Lapa in Namibia

Ek vermoed die cruiser sou self uitgekom het as sy bandruk laer was? Persoonblik sou ek nie die kans gevat het (lyk soos Hoarusib rivier?) wat baie ver van beskawing af is nie. Klein karretjies het klein clutches. So taai soos wat die Jimny is, is alles nog in proporsie met sy grootte. Olifantsrus h...

Re: Is this a TB42 or TD42

Point is: there will be an element of big risk to all of them. Johann If a car is 30 years old or more (or thereabouts), I think it is fair to assume it will need attention. Radiators that last as long as that are exceptional - to name one item. The question is how much, which is where some risk al...

Re: Is this a TB42 or TD42

Depending on the use you want to put the vehicle to, my advice may be exactly the opposite. For the following reasons: 1) It is now almost impossible to find carb kits. 2) I doubt there are more than a handful of guys left who can re-build a carb properly once worn. 3) The same applies to the distr...

Re: Is this a TB42 or TD42

My Shorty TB42 (admittedly lighter than the station wagon) does: Highway: 7,5km/l. Traffic only 5km/l. No lift and all terrain tires. And I love that TB42 Carburattor. It runs very smooth, idles super quiet, engine always under-stressed. New pipes and madman water sensor (and regular service) will m...

Re: Patrols for Sale - Various sites

The facelift 3di (2005+) (the on for sale on the previous page) was always GL (low spec) and manual. More recently before the Y62 came, a limited number were released with higher specs,incl climate control. Between 2002 and 2004 the 3di (pre face lift) came in both GL (low spec) and GRX. Mine was GR...

Re: Is this a TB42 or TD42

Yes

Agreed. Coil pack and no carb. So I guess must petrol but at some stage made fuel injection.
If it is diesel, it would have been a conversion.
The SGL was the petrol model. Die diesel model was the ST.
