Re: SGL Bumper

I believe someone has already been in contact with the guy. So I guess it is no longer available.

Re: 4.5 vs 4.8 Starter

The 4.8 starter recently started acting up. Pulled the motor and swapped out the brushes with the brush kit in my spare 4.5 starter whilst waiting for a spare. Ordered a spare locally for the princely sum of R2,300 for a Eurolek part. However, I came across some interesting part numbers. Nissan part...

Re: Mad Man Coolant Level Detector Install

I gave quite a bit of though as to what was pointed out by Petrol, Thinus and Christo. And yes - all are correct - my solution is not perfect. I think the set-up will probably work in some pipe burst scenarios (ie: where the leak is after the water pump - as was the case the other day) but not in ot...

Re: Patrol 4.8 Starter

A quick update. Putting the starter back was even easier. The steps I followed were as follows: 1. I held the starter in place from the bottom with my right hand while screwing in the bottom bolt. This was just tight enough so it is mostly flush at the top as well. I gave it a few turns with the sp...

Re: Odometer display going wonky

Cedric,

This looks more like a dry joint. But may have been caused by corroded tracks, as pointed out by Anthony. Pull the cluster, and resolder, and it should be fine. I hope.

Keep us posted.

Edit: I mean, the symptoms are dry joint. The reason for that might be the corrosion of the tracks.

Re: 4.5 GU Jump Seats Available

Apologies. Wayside contacted me this morning. The previous owner of his Patrol forgot to give him the set of jump seats, and still has them, so he has collected the original set of seats. In short, this means that my set of 4.5 jump seats, along with plastic trim and the "locks" which fit into the f...

Re: Mad Man Coolant Level Detector Install

I recently had a water pipe burst. By the time I noticed steam coming from the burst pipe, and noticed that my engine temperature was rapdily increasing, my overflow tank was already empty. If I had been on the highway, I may not have noticed the steam, and if I had not been watching temperarures, I...
