Re: East Africa Trip 2020

Hi Johaan, in the UK at the moment and so a 2 hour delay. Some of my troubles were self inflicted, some were because my truck was from the UK and rusty and some were just wear and tear. I shipped the Patrol in 2011 to Durban and did a lot of recce trips to see how I wanted it set up. Before finally ...

Re: East Africa Trip 2020

Hi Johann. Although its true that the Landcruiser is better supported in Africa, I am sure you will be fine in your Patrol. I have done those countries in my 2001 3.0 and although I experienced a host of problems I always managed get them sorted out. My advice though would to be to travel slowly, po...

Re: Injector failure

Hi Hugh, an interesting post. I think I might have missed something though, can you wind back a bit to how you suspected a faulty glow plug in the first place, or if its in another post please give me the link. Also, did you have any codes thrown up from the engine management. In my travels, I got u...

Re: Diesel Fuel filter and Prime Pump assembly

Re: Patrol GU I Seatcovers. Mellville and M Free to a good home.

Hi Cedric. Just a useless bit of information, I bought my current Patrol from Rick Melvill of Melvill and Moon fame. He told me they also personalised some Landies with their products up in Johannesburg but I never saw one. I am in the UK at the moment struggling to give away the leather jump seats ...
