3.0 td questions

Hello almal I'm asking the question below because I saw a 2006 3td for sale with a recent engine/clutch overhaul. I read somewhere the pre-2003 3td motor was the one with problems (hand grenade), but even with issues ironed out, the 3 td motor is still a gamble, specially if you're driving it a bit ...

Re: '99 4.2D GL

Thanks for the pics Dustin:) Only thing missing on these pics are the rock sliders. Will post more when in port next. I got a price from Dawid last year for a "clean" roof and it was actually very affordable, however the fitment/spray was the big expense. I reckon if someone could do the work themse...

Doesn't look like the Patrol in this Youtube clip comes with a roof, however still looks really cool, albeit a bit strange.

Re: Ball joints replace or service?

Last year when I had this issue, I got a set of TR05677 ball joints, but never used them (still boxed in my garage). It's a Partquip box and I think I got it from Diesel-electric. I decided to leave the tie rod as is, because I was told the ball joints are ok if they don't have much resistance (as d...

Gearbox/transfer case oil change

I changed the gearbox and transfer case oil the weekend and had the recommended amounts at hand, nl. 3.9L Gearbox, 2.2L transfer case, however I only managed to get about 2.5L into the gearbox and 1.2L into the transfer case. The vehicle was raised in the front very slightly and I drained both until...

Re: 2.8 diesel reputation

Thanks for the feedback so far. Spoke to owner today, turns out the replacement motor is not the Patrol 2.8 . A German mechanic (will get details later) from Joburg area fitted a non turbo 2.8 motor which has done about 20000km since fitted. How much (fitted) would one of the previously mentioned o...

2.8 diesel reputation

Hi guys A friend referred me to someone with a 2.8 (6cyl) who wants to chop the roof off for game viewing. Body/interior is apparently spotless, so perhaps worth making an offer before they hack it apart. However, I don't know anything about this motor and was hoping to get some feedback here. I hav...
