so unfortunately, i gotta announce that today, I sold my Safari\MQ160 Patrol is what i did
I did not have time for the old girl lately and someone came along and snatched her up at a bargain price
hoping she makes her new owner's life worthwhile.
bought as a work vehicle to access some hard to reach areas

I'll still be around these parts for a bit, ya never know a newer model Patrol may still be in my future

I have been working on my Nissan fuel system. I have removed the low pressure pumps and surge tank and fitted internal pressure pumps.

The back tank is now fitted with two internal fuel pumps, one for the rear tank fuel tank engine supply, and one for tank to tank transfer. These can be swapped over if I have a fuel pump problem for the main fuel supply.

I still have to do the same conversion for the front fuel tank, plus redo the wiring to control the pumps as required.

Replaced front-end bushes, Panhard, Radius arms, and swaybar "D" bushes.
I had already fitted new Stabilizers to the swaybar and new springs and shocks 2" lift, so now she pretty much has all new front-end.

Had to search a few pages back in history to find this thread again.... so without further ado.

So I recently started working on the never ending list of things that I need done. Latest is something that I've never done properly, so this time I did a better job fitting some diff, gearbox and transfer case breathers. I even threaded the 2 rear breather pipes through the chassis rail on the left. The only place I could find to fit the outlets, was on the inner guard behind the snorkel.

I also remounted the air box and created a new inlet for the airflow meter and refitted the 2 breather pipes into the new silicone hoses that I used. I made and adapter and with a few pvc 90mm bends I linked the air box to the snorkel.
While doing this I noticed that the O2 sensor wiring and plug was missing.... holy crap, I must have cut it off when last I cleaned up the wiring loom. So I had to open up the nicely wrapped wiring loom all the way to the ECU, find the places where I cut the wires. Luckily I dumped all the old wiring and plugs into a box and after an hours search, there must be kilometers of Skyline look in there, I found the OS sensor plug with the wires still attached. Soldered back and re-wrapped the loom and everything is all good again. I guess that is partly why my fuel consumption was very bad lately, the other reason is the new 2.5 inch exhaust that makes this beautiful sound..... :p

Also fitted the 2 new 7 inch LED spotties and light bar on the front. Holy crap, more light than I will need!

Lastly, I finally fitted some rear recovery points onto the chassis rails under the rear bar. At least the front ARB bar come with 2 built in points.

Next month, definitely a winch. I will have to fabricate a winch mounting plate and cut a few holes in the ARB front bar which I don't really look forward to.

After that, rock sliders and then I still need to fit the front ARB locker thats been sitting on the shelf for the last 5 years... don't ask.

So that is what I did with my Patrol today, almost every day for the last 2 weeks.

Re-drilled the hole for the auto shifter linkage tonight to fix the shifter not needing the lock button pushed in to go into 1st. Now it's back to factory and much safer, for the gearbox at least. ;)

Mate don't get me started... but even before I think about adding that to my looong list of upgrades, I will have to upgrade the brakes, then think what I am going to do without a license and a crushed car... 🤪

So I kept a few things from the R34 Skyline front chop that gave me the donor RB24DE NEO engine. Today I opened one of the boxes with the panel that covers the drivers side under the steering wheel of the R34. Well, I needed a switch panel for the new spot lights and soon the new compressor for the front ARB locker. Also the the override switch for the dual battery system. 4 swithes in total. So this R34 panel has 4 standard squire switch holes, 3 on the right side and one one the left side. I had to slightly trim the left side under the steering wheel and the right upper corner where it goes under the dash. Perfect fit. Made 2 holes for mounting bolts and a bracket under the right hand side of the dash. What do you think? Even a small pocket where I can store stuff, possibly sun glasses :cool:
