    Hi guys, i have an 05 gu td42 and i find it very difficult to change out of first gear smoothly, usually the car jolts when i change out, and the only way i can kind of get it to change smoothly is to let my foot off the accelerator and press the clutch down at the EXACT same time. i don’t think...

    Hey I've had a brief look but I am looking to purchase a new chassis and not sure if it is possible to buy a new chassis for a gq patrol single cab? This is that I am currently dealing with 2/3 back next to rear radius arms... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi, pretty new to the TD42 so this might be a dumb question, but how much smoke is normal from the crankcase breather? I took a video today after a bit of a run so she's warm, this is through a catch can at idle. Anything worth worrying about, or not? Cheers!

    Gday guys. I’ve got a 2003 td42ti gu patrol and since few days I’ve noticed that I kind of loosing power when it gets hot. Car still keeps going but I feel it doesn’t go as much as I accelerate and also I can feel the car is sort of vibrating when it happens. Car isn’t getting hot or anything...

I've taken the internals out and put the solenoid back in without the spring and plunger and she runs like a dream. It's got me stumped, I've got a new solenoid...

    Hey guys, I’m starting to get into 4x4 and am really interested in patrols. I barley know anything about them and I’m still learning. Can someone tell what a td42 patrol is and differences between GU and GQ patrols? Cheers.

    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 ...

    So I have a GQ td42 patrol that has been sitting for a few weeks and wasn't drive and hardly turned on because of a blown starter motor and parasitic drain. Anyway got all that sorted but after a few hot days, I noticed coolant leaking from the overflow bottle when the car was off and hadn't...

    Hello, I’m about to buy this GQ and wanted to know if 19.5k was a good price as the guy won’t budge. I think it’s an alright price but is close to 20 grand so thought I’d see what everyone thinks. It’s a 1997 gq td42 rx with 215 clicks Its a silver top with turbo put on aftermarket running...

    Hey guys, I have a 2004 GU td42 that I’ve only had for a few weeks now. 90% of the time it’s runs perfectly however occasionally it takes a few seconds of cranking (generally a few goes of 5 seconds or more of cranking) before it starts and usually blows a puff of white smoke when it does...

The new loom will convert a new rd28 interior loom to suit my car (my current loom is melted) and converts it beautifully to the td42 that's in it now. I'm going to undertake the install process of...
