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 or any other decent option be (rough estimate)?
The owner doesn't know much about engines (like me), so he got it wrong by saying the new motor isn't Nissan. I got pics of it and it appears to be a RD28 (no turbo). Apparently super pap, much worse than the original turbo version. The RD28 seems to have a good reputation, but not sure I can live with something even papper than my 4.2D
Owner bought vehicle around 2001 brand new in Zambia, moved back to SA and registered it here, so one owner, stock standard, well looked after. My in laws know the owner very well, so I have peace of mind in that department. Motor overheated at 220 000km, new motor fitted 20 000km ago.
Not having seen the 2.8 before, I have no idea about value. Assuming it is a clean vehicle, any ideas about value?
