Drove to Melbourne to clear a few outstanding issues and used it to test some tuning mods to my diesel chip. Diesel chip outcomes very good. Melbourne is a bigger shit hole than ever. Only one in ten

Fitted two more 12v power outlets to the rear of the centre console to run the 12v oven and power the kids electronic gear

Crikey you learn something new every day. I didn't realise that chariots had rubber tyres... well there you go! Not sure if the horse (tow vehicle) would like it either! Sent from my Galaxy N

Decided to change brake pads all over before Easter trip.

 

Interestingly found that aftermarket pads might not be necessarily better from how much material they contain.

Genuine pads front 12 mm aftermarket 9-10 mm, rear 10 mm aftermarket 8 mm.

 

Makes me wonder what is going on. Well time will tell if it was the good decision to go with these fancy Bendix hybrid pads. They certainly have less "meat" on them than genuine Nissan ones.

Replaced another battery, the main one this time, I'm so over this shyte, so far 5 batteries in 5 years........

Bought classic vented lead acid one instead of those crap MF sealed POS.

 

Seems like my shitbox runs on lead acid fuel, lol.

Cheers

 

Mate... Have you added the extra earth between chassis and battery negative...seems like its running down... My 2003 had a similar issue when I got it and did thus, no new batteries since... The aux can get hot. Was recommended to get a hybrid..and add heat shield. Did that and all good...

I have fitted several earth cables already, one between chassis and body and another between engine, chassis and body.

I did fit heat shield to the aux battery now too. I think 2 batteries were cooked and drained dead too often, one got shaken to bits during Simpson Desert crossing and one simply failed (poor manufacturing perhaps) and I had to replace the OEM battery after 8 years of flawless performance. I went back to old style wented caps flooded type as Patrol has zero capacity left in its alernator for the fancy new types with higher charging rate.

Regards

Replaced failed Auber red boost gauge with the blue one, rewired ignition signal to fuel pump from wiper motor to "spare" dif lock solenoid harness conveniently fitted by Mr Nissan but sitting in there idly....

Another CC idea fcuk up (used the intercooler fan wiring which is no longer used/removed for electric lift pump) using wiper motor ign signal as a source! WTF! Everytime wipers are on the voltage drop caused the signal to fail icon_rolleyes.gif......

Cheers

Just tried shorting the wires on the water in fuel circuit but the engine light came on not the water in fuel light, so they must have stuffed something up when they did the conversion from a zd30 to a td42, but at least I have some form of light on the dash coming on, engine light is better than nothing.....

I got it from TJM @ cooper plains  $30 bucks.

Just watch your amps with usb ports as there are different sizes for min power  rate on usb iteims. This is a 1.5 amp witch will does charge my Samsung 5 phone. You can get larger ones up to 2.5amps. Seen one that had both 2.5 and a 1.5amp.
