    G'Day Fellas,
    Thankyou Mudrunner & paulthekelly for the word of mouth, appreciate it.

    Great to see PK that your happy with it, and you feel its a usfull thing to have. Its made my life easier.

    As MR sugested i come on here and say hello, so HELLO.

    At the moment i have these made to suit the TD42 that have the same 2 oil filters, I'm still trying to get hold of a oil housing that has the 2 different oil filters, and once i have that, i will have them avaliable resonably quickly. (so if anyone has a housing that i'm after please let me know)

    I currently have 60 of these nearly ready to go off and be electroplated, so within the next week or 2 i will have these ready to go, and will have them up for sale in the appropiate section

    If anyone want to know any more about these feel free to PM me.

    Cheers, Chicken

    Hi Steve,

    Yes it believe Chicken is still making them but he now works International FIFO, so he doesn't get allot of time. He never really got active here which is a shame but he is about. I have him on Facebook. You will find him there for sure.

    He has developed them a little as it turned out the originals ones only fitted the GQ and he had to redesign them for the GU.

    @Stropp and I were beta testers for his GU units and I have one fitted to both my GQ and my GU. The best bit of kit ever!.
    Its a Nissan! =====> Its a Keeper!! ....... Got a TD42 in it BONUS!! ....... I'm a lucky bugger! I've got 2 of em!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Probably depends how big your hands are. I unbolt the fuel filter bracket & unclip & move a couple of vacuum lines out of the way & can then just have sufficient rom to lift the old filters out.

    As Cuppa said, assuming you have a GU then unbolt the top of the Fuel filter bracket and move it out of the way and you will have a heap of room. I generally change the fuel filter while I'm there too. To remove the fuel filter unbolt the bracket, invert it and bolt it on upside down and you can lessen the full filter with ease

    That's what I thought. Thanks for the clarification!
