Re: Looking for a diesel GQ

The basic standard 4.2 petrol GQ's go for around the R50-60 mark on average, but with extras can go up a bit .... having said that that, the 4.2 diesel GQ's tend to go for a slightly higher price, I believe purely on the rarity of them. The ones with a SAFARI turbo fitted are worth even more than a ...

Re: Looking for a diesel GQ

Please note that any GQ turbo you find is either a grey import (thus parts become an issue and Nissan expect you to pay a 100% non-refundeable deposit on any parts orders), or a modified vehicle.

Some of them are very good, some of them are terrible, so be careful.

Re: Tejan Pillay (DMH) 95 GQ Patrol 4.2D

Hi Tejan, and a warm welcome to this very friendly forum. About 2 years ago, I went to a scrap yard, I think in Gokul road Isipingo, to view what I had thought was a Y61, however it was your shape but petrol. If you look up scrap yards in that area you will probably find the Patrol. I cannot remembe...

Re: Looking for a diesel GQ

I'm going to jump in here quick before Peter answers you. The TD42's are generally VERY robust, but were never designed to be turbo'ed. There are threads here ( http://www.patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=2162&hilit=silver+top+vs+black+top and http://www.patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=4274...

Re: Alternator - 4.2 diesel GQ

It depends on your charging system and batteries. If your second battery is a deep-cycle, you can't really push more than 25 Amps or so into it. Your main battery can only take say 40-45 A. So, a 60A alterntor is enough, unless you get into a situation where you have flattened both batteries and nee...

Re: ZD30 cheap rebuild met fotos

Thanks for that Wilkie. I've done just over 305000km on my 2002 Hardbody ZD30. She hasn't given me any major problems - had the turbo serviced once. Perhaps the issues she's been such an old faithful is because she's been superslow going up hills for as long as I can remember. My 4.2D GQ does bette...
