Default New to forum but not to patrols

Hi all
As per title I'm new to the forum but have owned Patrols before. I've had an L26 with a Perkins 4236 conversion and a Y60. Altogether done about 700k miles in them.

After the Y60 died I went on to other vehicles as I wasnt too fussed about the mickey-mouse engine that was in the Y61.

However I've started thinking, as I'm fancying returning to Patrols.

So, question:

Can anyone tell me please if the 4.2 diesel or the 4.5 or 4.8 petrol was available in the Y61 for the Japanese market ? 'Cos if they are I'm seriously thinking about importing.

Regards
Andy

Like the car generally, but dont trust it due to electrickery gremlins. Also a bit of a low towing limit.

I would be surprised if Japan didn't run the full breadth of Y61 engine options tbh

I'm sure I've seen imported TD42 Y61s that looked Jap spec (eg. no rear lights in bumper).

I run a Jap import TD42 Y60 myself.

Before we bought our old r3mR I looked at a couple of ZJ's or it might have been a ZG one was a petrol with LPG conversion but it had a blown head gasket when I looked closer. The second one as I recall was a diesel it had an odd arrangement with four separate cylinder heads.

Our WK(Mk1) is great to drive but it is quite a complex Merc designed V6, for some reason we like the feel of the older WJ with its more plodding 5 cylinder Merc designed unit complete with the 5 cylinder engine note thrum.

Whilst the Jeeps are undoubtably nice vehicles, I think if you do get a Patrol you'll be hooked, just as I was. After 4 years still want another Patrol

Re: my initial post and enquiry, I've found that the 4.5 & 4.8 Y61 are available in Japan, so started ball rolloing to import

I love the Patrol (might get one one day) but as I only buy a used 4x4 with under 75k max on the clock they have been way outside my 6k price limit. Yes the Jeep is not top of it's tree but IMHO it's good value in the lower price band.

You could risk a much higher mileage than that with a Patrol. The TD42 engine was renown for being able to run up starship mileage. 500k was not unusual.

I had 350 on mine and just like new.

Here's a nice looking example, cut/paste into browser:

If I wasn't planning a different route I might have been tempted to look at this one myself.

I'm hoping to get similar mileage out of my TD27 on the veg

That is nice, quite fancy going back to a Y61, had one ten years ago but was lot of trouble
on the then new ZD engine. Had a ZD powered Terrano 3 years has restored faith in the
engine.

Mind thinking back its a shame there isnt a nice 6 pot under that long bonnet and would
have been great if Nissan had done a 6 cylinder ZD with a cc around 4.5 litre and say
240 bhp out of the box...... a modernisation of the 4.2TD I guess.

Absolutely agree. Thats why I'm on a mission to import a 4.5 from Jap land.
