Parts availability as of 2020

If it doesn't fit in the others but is 60 series related, post it up.

Morning everyone-I‘be been away from Patrols and the Patrol community for the last 15 years and am thinking about purchasing another 60 series....when I last had a Patrol (2006) most of the necessary parts could still be had somewhere, even if it took a little creativity... What is the availability today of master and slave cylinders, cap/rotor, carb kit, water pump and other parts that will likely need attention if I purchase and old Patrol that has been sitting for years?
Appreciate any help or insight, thanks, Duane

Daner! He lives! :lol: Go get that Patrol, you know it's calling to you.

Parts still require creativity and scouring. Wheel cylinders are much more available and cheaper. Clutch hydraulics are available, brake master will require some creativity. Cap and rotor for the water protect are unobtanium, might find one stashed somewhere though. Folks are replacing the distributor with non-water protect ones and do just fine. Rochester carb kits are readily available. Virtually there's nothing that will keep your patrol from running and going down the road that the forum or your own diligence can't find.

Thanks River-great to see you are still actively involved in Patrols and the community. I’m going to look at the 1962 soft top that has been on Facebook marketplace in NorCal for the last few months tomorrow. Hard to tell what kind of condition it and the parts rig are from the description and pics. Looks like it has the factory soft top bows, but also cut wheel wells. One way or another, will have a report on it manana.

Thanks again, your insight on parts gives me encouragement.

That does look like a worthy project. Might not take much to get it going again.

Well, didn’t make it down to look at the 1962. Weather did not cooperate. Hope to reschedule.
