  3. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Hi! New to the forum sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere. Wondered if anyone has the answer a couple of questions. I own a 1993 4.2 Petrol GQ, i believe its fitted with a 2" or maybe a 2.5" exhaust system (not sure if its original). The Muffler has rusted through and now has holes. I've...

    Hi Everyone, I am looking at replacing some parts in my Maverick. Is there any difference between the patrol or the maverick? It is a 4.2L petrol manual LWB. for example i am looking at a radiator for tb42 and i was told by the supplier that it wont fit, is this true?
  7. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hey guys, #1 I have an 1990 patrol, Rb30, petrol that ticks when I start the engine, but goes away after it's warmed up. This is caused by the lifters. The ticking I'm concerned about is the constant ticking when idling after it's warm and also while I accelerate. The ticking gets faster the...
  8. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    I always see threads on egt gauge installs on turbo diesels but has anyone bothered to install an egt gauge on their 4.5 or 4.8 turbo'd or N/A? I was throwing around the idea of installing one in my 4.5 to see the actual difference in exhaust temps between running on LPG and petrol, i also...
  9. Buying a Nissan Patrol
    Hello all, About to upgrade from a 2.8 hilux to an early gu. As much as I'd love a 4.2, funds wont allow and a gq is not on the cards. I do about 80 kilometres a week in the commute to uni and go to the high country a few times a year as well as Wesburn/Toolangi when I can (once or twice a...

    I always thought that the diesel motors ran at a higher temperature and therefore needed to have a snorkel more so than a petrol motor - having said that the fact that you will get improved fuel consumption, cleaner air, cools engine temperatures and of course look pretty cool make it an...

  14. Nissan Patrol MQ/MK 160/260 series
    G'day! I've got a '84 MQ, which is dual fuel, with a 70L Gas tank in the cargo bay. The problem I'm having is that the range is pretty poor, only about 300km for either the fuel tank or the Gas tank. I'm toying with the idea of taking out the unleaded fuel tank and turning it in a dedicated Gas...
