Re: 4.8 Alternator upgrade.

Nope - the Hitachi LR1110-718 as fitted to the TB48 is 110A. The ZD30 has an 90A and I think the old RD28's had a 70A alternator

Re: Winch?

Hi Clem

I have the 9000LB Come Up winch which haven't let me down (...when helping other people :biggrin: ).

I don't think the 4.8 even notices the extra weight.

Check this link for some more winch discussions Winches

Re: Towing with 4.8 AUTO

The 2007 have the upgraded 5th gear so it should be OK to tow but personally I would use tip-tronic 4th especially if you are running slightly bigger tires. This will stop the hunting between gears.

Also consider the "cruise in manual mode" mod which allows you to use your cruise control

Re: Safari Uitlaatstelsel

Safari-1 het 'Banana Branches' en Safari2 het nog die oorspronklike cast-iron manifold.
Die Banana Branch tipe is gewoonlik 'tuned' lengtes wat beter gasvloei veroorsaak omdat die pulse wanneer die exhaust valves oopmaak nie teen mekaar baklei nie maar mekaar help. Hulle is ook gewoonlik 3-2-1

Gap grew by only 0.03 mm over this distance. I didn't replace any gaskets - just reused the old ones

Re: Patrol stuck in Park mode

Also had to press the shift-release button to put in drive but mine was a blown fuse. Replaced it and is now fine. I think all the additional brake lights are putting a bit of strain on the fuse :confused:

Re: Newby Patrol Owner - Things to look out for

Let me think... It is a GL.... a 4.8....low milage ..... serviced.... nope I can't think of anything :rolleyes:

Only thing I would look out for is play on the front wheel bearings and maybe a stuck difflock solenoid due to lack of use which are all easy to fix.
