    Default G60 Patrol

    Hi guys how many of these Nissan or Datsun Patrols are still around.
    I have one (1965 SWB) that I build back in 1986. Sold it in 1993 and after a few new owners bought it back a few years ago.

    I had it running on a 302 Ford v8 matched to a Mazda truck 5-speed to the original Nissan t-case. This setup was fine till one of its previous owners fiddled with the gearbox output shaft I had specially made up way back in 1986.

    A year or so ago I installed aluminum heads a 670cfm Holley off road carb and a new cam. This set up will have power close to 230kw. The extra power just proof to much for the modified shaft and were stripped at two occasions.

    My two sons are 4x4 nuts as well so the Patrol is in their love and care now. We are busy fitting a Cruiser H55 box. They also bribed me out of a spare set of 35`s.

    I would love to hear about other running G60`S. Seems that they are quite scarce these days.

    The two Musketeers stripped the old Patrol to redo the body work.

    From a safety point of view I had a problem after they stripped of the hunting rails.
    There was no driver protection in case of roll over. So they are busy building a roll cage. I sponsored a set of bucket seats with 4 point harness ,which will hopefully be here by end next week.

    They are pushing to finish the Patrol before the NCGT in October.

    These old G60`s are quite popular down under.
    Something in its shape just do it for me, it is a sort of "sexy"
    Still remember how I nagged the owner way back in 1986 to sell me the Patrol.

    Will never forget the day that I brought home the old lady with much needed attention.

    The day I bought her 1ste time and buying her back.

    Found some old pic`s this morning.

    Serious stuff in the old Patrols engine. A real sleeper, who would suspect
    Edelbrock alu heads and roller rockers and some other trick performance stuff.

    A little dust covered but boy that 302 have some oomph.

    H55 Cruiser box asked a few mods. A bell housing from Gilo did the trick.

    New bolt in cross member and the H55 was in place.

    Got the lathe in action and manufactured two adaptors for the prop shafts.
    Adapting between the Patrol prop shafts and the Cruiser box.

    Nato alles is seker al `n jaar terug gefit. Ek hou maar deesdae terug met die build threads.

    Nog so `n paar kosmetiese dingetjies en die Patrol is weer terug op die pad. Sal graag later vir hom `n costum suspensie wil bou maar ek dink die belangerikste is om hom nou eers te ry.

    Dink sy power to weight ratio gaan hom lekker laat loop.

    Jelo one of the reasons I love American v8`s is all those aftermarket goodies.

    You can really build a Yankee v8 around your own liking. The variety of aftermarket goodies leave you speech less sometimes.

    Comp Cams alone have more than 150 cam profiles available for the 302
    I mix and match to suite my taste. Also very nice software package to help you choose the right cam for the right application.

    This little 302 have a Comp Cam, Edelbrock Heads, Edelbrock intake,
    Crane roller Rockers. Only left standard the block and crank.

    Power to weight ratio for this little Nissan is awesome.

    Weight of the Patrol in standard form around 1000kg.

    Power of engine 230kw.

    Go figure

    Helped my son to install a Alu radiator and electric fan yesterday.

    We had no overheating issues but I decided to go the proven way.

    Let the engine idle till working temp with the fan cycling keeping the temp at a constant 76C which happen to be the thermostat setting.



    Disconnected the fan and let temp climb to 90C. Re- connect the fan and within a minute or so it was back on 76C.
