  1. Gday guys and girls. Well I am getting ready to pull the engine out so that I can rebuild it. The workshop manual says to take the transmission out to remove the engine. In the past I have never had to do this with other vehicles just wondering if anyone has removed the engine before and has got any tips. Cheers Matt
  2. Well I put a starter motor back in it today and jump started it. sat for that long and fire almost straight away. with bend rods it sounded like an old diesel but it ran no worries. cant kill a Nissan. I have an 80 series Diesel landcruiser as well. Very tempting to put an ls3 in but with the local laws it will cost me way too much to get it engineered and registered.
  3. Hi guys and Pezzy. Has been a few years since I have been on here (since I sunk my pathy and stuffed the motor) I picked the old girl up today from my fathers where she hasnt moved for over 2 1/2 years. Im going to be rebuilding the motor and fixing up the transmission and doing plenty more along the way, I will keep you all posted on my progress and hopefully get back up the bush in a Nissan and get rid of the toyota.
  4. I'll send you over a jar of Vegemite and a pack of Tim Tams. hehe
  5. Hi guys and girls, Well I have noticed that quite a few of you now have sliders. I was wondering if someone could give me the meausrements and or drawings for them. It would be way to expensive to have some shipped out here to Australia. Thanks in advance if you could help me out. Cheers, Matt
  6. Congrats Pezzy. So when are you going to get some chunky muddies for your baby?
  7. Hi, My pathy used to have fog lights on it. Where they had been spliced into the original loom managed to short out and cause a fire under the hood. I ended up Buying a Piranha Off Road super loom which has a trigger wire for driving lights. If you could find a Male H4 connector (the same as the back of a headlight globe) I could give you the measurements to make your own. It plugs into the orginal headlight socket and wires to the battery. This loom made my headlights alot brighter than the original. P.S. If you find somewhere the sells the male H4 connectors can you let me know. Thanks.
  8. Gday guys & Gals, Well I had a fire under the hood during the week. The jackass's that had the pathy before I bought it had fog lights on the car and removed them. They left all the wiring in place. I have had the car for nearly 2 years and where they spliced the headlight harness it shorted out. If anyone has a diagram of an upgraded headlight harness I would be much appreciated to see it. Cheers, Matt
  9. Gday guys and girls, Wow looking at some of these pics all i can say is "wholly crap batman". I dont know if you guys have these in the states but have a look any way. http://www.couplertec.com.au/product/4wd.html Hopefully we dont loose to many beloved pathies to the metal worms. If the cabin and interior are good why not buy a good rail from a wrecking yard down south. just a thought dont know what the laws are there in doing so but here in Austalia you can do it aslong as you can prove that your purchased it from a legal source.
  10. Hi guys. My friend that i am staying with has a pathy, so snosnk if you want to catch up and go wheelin let us know. Venge and Pezzy great to see you in th pcoa forums.
  11. Heres a few pics of my Pathy.
  12. I am going to be staying in Gooding, ID. Will be heading down to Indianapolis for the brickyard 400. after that no real plans just go where ever the wind takes me.
  13. Hey guys & Girls, Im coming to the States from July 18 till August 18. I was wondering if anyone wanted to meet up and maybe if we could organise a group to go out with. I will be based in Idaho but will be travelling around. No real plans made. Anyhow let me know as I am interested in meeting you guys and girls. OzMattie
