  1. General Patrol Discussion
    G'day all, I've got an old GQ with over half a mil K's on the clock, I don't know as much as most of you about machines so bare with me. I want to put a turbo on it and give it a bit more power, the implied jobs falling out of this would be the replacement of other parts as it's old. Do i need...
  2. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi gurus , there’s a backstory but will keep it short. I managed to damage the rearmost cam bearing in my td42 while conducting a rebuild (short motor atm, With crank rods pistons in) Will I be able to get away with knocking it into the block and “fishing” it out, then install new cam bearing ...
  3. Buying a Nissan Patrol
    Hi all, new here and think of buying a patrol. Found a TD42ti GU coil cab ute with over 500,000 kms on the factory turbo and intercooler but upgraded to 12mm pump. Engine is a bit tired and I found a TD42 silver top out of a gq that has been rebuilt to handle boost. Is it work putting that...
  4. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    G'Day Patrol Forum Members, I have a 2003 GU III ZD30, have done 220K Km and I love it. It hasn't missed a beat, outside an alternator which was recently replaced at 210K with a genuine replacement. I did the water pump as a precaution ahead of a Simpson Desert crossing (180K) which turned out...

    Runaway engine and resultant problems So I've done a whole heap of reading and research and can't seem to find the answers I'm looking for, so I thought I would throw it out there to the wisdom of the patrollers out there. So we had decided to do a trip at Christmas with a friend from...
  7. Engine & Drivetrain
    G'day all, I have a question regarding the factory HT-18 Turbo on my TD42T Patrol. My old man has given me his 2001 GU Patrol ute that's been sitting in the shed for over 4 years, undriven. The ute itself has only done 120,000kms but fell ill to a cracked radiator, which dumped all the water...

  9. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hi I'm getting prices for the install of a spartan auto locker in the front of my gu. I have spoken too 2 diff/gearbox specialists who say that I have to basically rebuild the diff aswell, which adds a lot to the cost.
