History
My wifes Uncle purchased this vehicle brand new in 1996 from a Brisbane dealership. After towing caravans for 14 years to the cape & back it blew 5th gear on a return trip. I purchased the Pootrol in 2010 for $1000.
So far including purchasing newer RD28ETI and totally rebuilding it this vehicle has cost us just under 6K. - NO COMPLAINTS HERE

Modifications

Drivetrain
Started with factory RD28T.
I hade the diesel pump rebuilt totally & advanced the pump timing ( advanced it 4 degrees over factory )
fitted K&N pod air filter to facory aircleaner box.
Never looked back after air filter conversion.
Power and acceleration multiplied 10 fold from this air cleaner conversion - literally. - now getting 9.8ltrs per 100km on highway with some round town running. This engine threw the harmonic balancer & destroyed crank snout.
Now have fully rebuilt RD28eti from 2000 GU Patrol. Running same advance on pump with K & N pod cleaner is friggin amazing performance. great fuel economy, can overtake at 120kmh w/out any worries. Very quick off the mark.
Towing is still a small issue for heavier trailers, but otherwise can not knock the little RD28.
