Well I made a rookie move....I forgot to put my gas cap back on after filling up. Does anyone have a spare gas cap for a 69 patrol?!?

I have this reference in my notes:

Gates 31722 – no lock

Probably another member posted this cap at some point.

I recently ordered a roll of rubber seal to re-seal my doors. I only ordered one roll, to make sure it fit good, and it wound up working out pretty great! it is a "D-shape" seal. Here is the link where I ordered it:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V2N1N6L/?c ... _lig_dp_it

I sealed the bottom of the front doors (there was a huge gap....why did nissan design it like that??), and all around the passenger side door, then ran out after doing one part of the driver side door rear. I ordered another roll and will hopefully have enough for the rest of the driver door, and the rear doors as well. Will post pics soon.

I also plan on ordering some sound deadening/insulation for the engine bay and front cab area. Hopefully make listening to the radio a bit better!

Looking for an OEM handbrake lever assembly. basically these 2 parts pictured here:

the lever itself, and the toothed piece that the lever rotates around. I got rid of mine when I sold my complete motorset :(

I don't think 3/8" studs will be up to the task of handling the leverage that a steering arm would place on them (especially with bigger, heavier tires)



returning to this...my original plan was to replace the OEM studs with a longer length stud, attach a high steer arm, and then a nut on each stud. what if I replaced the studs/nuts with long, Grade 8 bolts instead? Bolt all the way through the steering arm, king pin, shims, into the knuckle. Do you think that would hold better? I could also weld another support piece to the knuckle and bolt the arm through that as well?

'
Nope- you have to use grade 8 studs- Twice as much clamping power as an equivalent sized bolt

I found the steering drag link that was used on my lifted green Patrol, and I noticed that it looks like it was heated and bent to clear the passenger side spring more easily... I have no use for it, so if you want it badly enough to pay for the shipping, you can have it.... That could at least buy you some time while you design a more robust solution.

I appreciate it! But my current setup, although a bit janky, seems to be working fine for now actually haha

So I ordered some new steering linkage boots from new-datsun-parts and put them on last night. Has anyone else ordered these from their website? The new part is different from the OEM part, with the holes off a bit. Take a look at the pics:

You can see, with the boots oriented the same way, the holes on the new boot are lower. I went ahead and installed them anyways, but just want to share my experience with these parts. On the plastic bag that the boots were in, was a part number "P127" I think, if that means anything

Thanks for pointing this out. Maybe they are for models on the wrong side of the road! Seriously.

Better than using the ones for the FJ40 which are smaller in diameter.

Don’t forget to show a picture once installed.

good point, i didnt think of that. But I would imagine that instead of designing a whole new drag link and end boots, Nissan would take an existing drag link and just turn it around to use on LHD vehicles. Which would result in still the same parts being used (drag link and boots).

Ill try to get an installed pic this weekend.

After your comment I went to check the parts manuals of both LHD and RHD, and in fact they are different! :roll:
LHD 48522-44200
RHD 48522-44000

ahh, I see! that may explain it. I searched your part numbers there and found something interesting....

http://www.autoletparts.com/Total36.html

This parts shop based in Thailand actually has brand new Patrol G60 parts! With that dust boot being one of them! no prices though, I wonder how their parts prices compare to other prices closer to or in the US...

Cool site! perusing the variety of parts they have available, I'd say they were a supply of Jonga parts. Interesting.
Beyond any hope for intervention

so I messaged new-datsun-parts and sent them those pictures of the boot. they said they are going to check on the part numbers with their supplier in Japan. Maybe it is a possibility that that boot was modeled after a RHD boot, and the LHD is opposite...Ill see if I hear anything back.
