  1. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61

    G'day ladies and gents, Recently acquired a nice and tidy TB45E, dual fuel, 1998, with 340xxx on it. The bloke I brought it off was an older gentleman, family 7 seater car, stock as a rock and runs like a dream. The only issue, he didn't have a owner's manual with service history for it, just...

    I’ve done lots of searching and reading and can’t locate my exact problem. I’ve had lots of things fixed on my dual fuel Tb45 over the past Couple of months that I’ve owned her. Things fixed/replaced include (not in order): valve adjustment (set to 0.30 at “semi warm” temp - mechanic made...

    Hi guys, I have a 1998 GU TI TB45 and am looking to replace the exhaust. I believe I could get a cheap system for around $1200 or so but am looking at second hand for now as I have a low budget for “play” money. So I’ve found a set from a TB42 which includes extractors and I understand the...
  5. Suspension and Steering
    I am looking to get a 2" lift on my patrol. It is my everyday rig, but i take it offroad almost every single weekend. It has a front and rear steel bullbar, winch, and roof rack. what suspension kit do you recommend. It is between ironman and dobinsons due to budget and availability as i am not...

    Curious if anyone has removed the lifters through the pushrod “sleeves” (lack of technical term) without removing the camshaft or head? Also, are they hydraulic lifters?

  8. Suspension and Steering
    Hi guys, I´m looking forward to upgrade my suspension setup on my 1999 Y61 Patrol 4.5L. It is my daily driver, but I also take it offroad every month. Once I upgrade the suspension I will put a steel bullbar, winch and I am also considering a rear bar with tire carrier. Now I just have a steel...

    Finally got hold of a decent GU3 ZD30 auto for my TD42 conversion. I already have a 1993 GQ TD42 which goes great but is looking too rough for the missus to drive. The whole reason I got on to this is because I plan on going traveling in the next year or two and the missus cant drive a manual so...

    was getting 560km from the main tank running 275/70R16's and now only getting 380km running 33/12.5R15's. Still have the 3.9 ratios which are a real pain as the rig struggles to sit on 100kph, revs are far too low at around 1600rpm cruising... I find the motor enjoys the revs up around 2000rpm...

    Hi all, My 4.5 petrol is a little sluggish (very sluggish actually) and have been researching into power mods to give it more grunt. Before we start however, these are mods that I would slowly implement as the financial status at the current time is not up to scratch (uni life :headwall: )...

    Newbie here with a stupid question. :withstup: Found a cheap zd30 aftermarket exhaust (3") on gumtree and was wondering if I wacked it on my tb45 (stock exhaust) if it would be okay? From my understanding of everything, as long as the exhaust manifold fits the exhaust then it should be okay?

  15. Engine & Drivetrain
    G'day all, Lately I've noticed a few threads on turbo TB42 and TB45 engines, and various questions regarding ignition timing for them. As it happens, I have come across the factory ignition curves to suit the TB42S and TB45S (carburettor) models. These provide a good go-by for anybody wanting...

    I feel that my 4.5 could do with a bit of a tune up and a general look over by someone who knows what they're looking at, (rough idle on petrol & gas, feels down on power when on on petrol). Does anyone know off or recommend someone in the newcastle/hunter area that knows patrols and is capable...

    I have a TB45 powered Ti with ABS, so the dramas of installing dual batteries is well documented with the current airbox. What I am thinking of doing is removing the factory airbox and installing the ZD30 airbox, and bolt my TB45 MAF where the ZD30 MAF was. I am hoping that these are the same...
