Re: Tell me everything about my Patrol

If you can make an old 4.2 rn at 8km/l I am getting an SGL first thing coming back from Namibia. Lots of them in Gumtree lately.

Please post the detail of that weber, I am interested.

Is it possible to convert the 4.2 petrol to EFI or is it not advised?

Re: Defender vs Patrol

Pieter you are kidding. A radio controlled Landy? wow Did you not get spanked if the toy left some oil marks on the carpet? :rolling: That discovery ad is the best. Everything is replaced, makes it the best Landy in mint condition. Pah. That is a classic case of a poor sucker that was taken for a ri...

Re: Looking at the 4.5 maths for fuel vs Tdi

What parts for the TD42 diesel?? The TD42 is pretty bulletproof unless it's heavily turboed and driven too hard....the "handgrenade" is a whole other kettle of fish though. Sure but what is the consumption on the 4.2? and the NA motor's service interval is not far, filling that block with oil is a ...
