  1. Auto Electrical
    Hi, all! I bought PerTronix ignition for my TB42S (#91762 ignitor II + #45011 coil), but I still can't imagine how to seal from the water distributor (silicone sealant may solve this problem I guess) and spark plug wires on the plugs itself. Did anyone do that? The purpose to do that is to...
  2. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Hi everybody. It seems my water temp gauge on my GU3 zd30 DI has died, I've been led to believe and what I can decipher from the service manuals is that the ZD30 has two! One which reports to the Computer, its a two pin connector, left of the alternator, screwed diagonally into the head...
  3. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    G'day crew, Have a bit of weird occurrence currently going on with the colder weather. (2014 Y61 ST) I seem to getting a leak somewhere in the back of the bus that is leading to condensation building up. To the point where I get mold on the drawers/back window sill. Been going for about 4...
  4. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hello fellow patrollers, My problem may be normal and I'm just paranoid, but I have a tb42 carby straight petrol. And recently I replaced water pump and radiator cap then topped up the system. I'll say up front that the water to coolant ratio is high so it is probably 90% water. Now on hot...

    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...
  7. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Hi guys, First time posting here.. I recently got myself my 89 GQ Maverick, and am looking to add a water tank to it. Has anyone done this under body before? I'm looking to do it under the middle row drivers side (where the aux tank goes i think). Space inside is at a premium due to the GF...
  8. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Took my patrol (rb30) out to the mud yesterday and ran through some water. Everything seemed fine while we were splashing around in the mud, however, when we started for home the engine was really sputtering and I had no power. At different points things seemed to normalise, but never back to...
  9. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hi guys I have a '98 2.8RD, and noticed the other day some slight resistance when engaging third gear. After reading up on this forum, I decided to add some G70 Nulon to see if it made a difference. I should add that I have only had the vehicle for 16,000km, and it had a full service after I...
  10. Buying a Nissan Patrol
    I bought a 2004 3.0 GU Patrol Wagon and failed to see it had been swamped (was a mechanic 20 years ago) I did a full revs check & it was all clear, so dont rely on this. I have pulled the seats out and internal fan box, aircon, carpets & discovered some issues. see below. I got the Patrol at...
