    Around 3000kg. I know my old ute was only 3050 or 3150kg.

    Edit. Had a look at a few on car sales. Appears TD42 wagons were 2800kg gvm.

    I contacted Nissan and gave them my VIN. The GVM for a 1997 GQ LWB is 2800kg. The max GVM upgrade in Victoria without stiffening of axle housings is limited to the front and rear axle limits which is 3300kg. Time to throw someone or something out of the car Winnie!!!

    When I had to get my car re-engineered after the fiasco in WA with BD, I stripped the back seat out, ran it almost empty of fuel, water tank empty, everything in the rear out including the extra battery, fridge, boxes, took the rear wheel and jack off, everything off the roofrack, side storage boxes under car with oils and other spares - and sill came in at 3160kg from memory for a 3300kg gvm upgrade.

    I had to reweigh the car for the brake test as well, and this was another strip down to 3200kg passed brake test, but when I measured the front and rear axles to get data for the spring selection process, which Dobinsons didn't know how that related to their springs, without all the junk out of it, it came in at 3980kg, which is why I am plating the chassis and strengthening the front spring mounts and double strengthening the rears with a PSR kit.!

    There is a mob QLD who manufacture a HD front diff housing assy for the Patrolhave a look at in Aug at the Melb 4x4 show, which has a nominal rated load rating 500 - 700kg above factory. They don't do a rea as yet, however the double edged sword is the GCM does not change, so you end up with a vehicle that can be certified for a higher GVM, yet only able to tow a skate board.

    Wiring tidy up about 95% I reckon, pleased with the outcome, but as @mudski suggested, 2 days was a bit ambitious and well off the mark - more like 14 days. Didn't get to the Codan, but all the lights are reinstated and working, as is the thermos fan set up. Still looking for the A/C trigger wire - absolutely no idea where it is hiding. Tidy up of the garage to find the floor againin the morning to hand the garage back to the wife and her car, then wind down for the arvo, back to work/first plane 6am Thursday and back to the mine - 4 weeks off, don't have much drive to head back there to be honest.

    Installed genuine water pump today, old one had a slight movement in the shaft but wasn't leaking.
    While the radiator and intercooler were out easy to do.

    The PPD ebay exhaust arrived monday. Looked nice and shiny, for 600 after ebay 10 % discount I am not expecting much in the way of easy fitment at this time....
    Yes, its 3 inch 304 stainless. Picked up tools at 8am today. All nuts and bolts were compliant thanks to Loctite freeze and release.
    Welded EGT socket in same place as the one on the old exhaust.
    To my utter amazement, everything fitted almost perfectly, with one hanger being a bit too long and needing a trim.
    And Nissan, get stuffed to the plick who designed the heat shield.
    Tools down at 11am.
    What looks like a cat is a tiny hot dog! ( I wanted catless and this is a bonus )
    Not overly loud, deeper note.
    Dropped EGTs by anpther 80 degrees. No drone.
    Cant feel and was not expecting any power gains.
    Is good.BB1F74F4-1EE3-478A-9FB9-F92214E19BB6.jpeg6FE60CE2-73EC-4DDB-99AA-BC738175E772.jpeg69713CD0-EE51-4576-AE58-0B53893D652C.jpeg85B69F9A-5BB6-4FD7-92C4-058BE55E6571.jpeg

    As a total bonus I saw soot around the rearmost exhaust manifold port, the most accessible one. Both nuts were loose, tightened, and now I dont get the angry cockatoo scream when it comes on boost when cold !!!

    Yesterday... But anyway

    Wanting to get this thing running a little better on petrol I replaced the fuel filter while I had 3/4 tank of fuel. Not quite great, but much better. Must stop running the tank low. Any tips on a good way to clean out the injectors. Was thinking 98 ron with a bottle of injector cleaner, bit of a octane overload. Yeah??

    Pulled out the awning to air it out after our little weekend away, keep forgetting.

    Wheel rotation. Happy how they are going. About 70,000 km and still have between 8-10 mm of tread. Checked for movement in the front bearings, passenger side good, drivers need a little nip. I did notice that the shaft has movement up and down and in and out, even after I nipped it up, not heaps but enough to flag it. I'll try to get the video
    Use the YouTube link.

    that's good wear for 70K. 8-10 mm is good, most tyres come out with about 14mm of depth brand new.

    My theory is if I've spent that much $$$ I'm going to get the most out of them. With the uneven wear on the front passenger side, l've been doing a 5 wheel rotation every 10k or there abouts.

    I did this on my last set of Mickey Thompson’s and replaced them at 105k. Best tyres I’ve ever had and was worth the effort looking after them

    Had a quick fling with a NISBIE. It would drop connection after a couple of minutes, and reconnect after it had a rest. Then it died, after getting really hot. Will try again, this has potential 265D57EB-8EAA-4DCF-83F9-6E62BE4D7524.jpeg
