Last year I bought a 1997 Nissan Patrol Station Wagon, diesel 4.2 litre - not turbo-charged. I am confused about which model it is. The compliance plate says it's year is 03/97, the engine plate tells me the engine's date is 10/96. Where the compliance plate says "Model" - it has "WRGY60LSFM" it also has other info ..
"Nissan Y60 COMM", "GYM 02800", "QM1K", "HG41", "TD42 4169cc" the latter obviously referring to the engine.
I cannot find any info about a Patrol "Model HG", so can anyone please tell me what model Patrol I have?
Thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

Y60 is the model so its a GQ last of them.
Y61 is the GU model code.

I havent got my copy of F.A.S.T loaded but I might by the week end . if anyone has a late AUS copy of fast loaded they be able to tell you.

even if the palte says 97 its the chassic number that gives the year away. It may well be a late 96 that sat on the docks for weeks.

Y60 is a GQ...
The date on the compliance plate is the date the vehicle was "complianced" in Aust...
Date on eng. plate is date of manufacture (of engine)... There should be a separate plate (on crossmember in front of radiator on GU's) w/- date of manufacture of completed vehicle....
GVM (not GYM) is Gross Vehicle Mass in kilograms, meaning that the loaded weight of the vehicle should not exceed 2800 kg...HG41 is the diff specs... ratio(s) 4.1:1 ...
I think the "QM1K" is the colour/trim codes...

Hope this helps...

The headlights are circular - just the 2 of them - one each side at the front - but it seems my question is already well answered.
Thank you to all for your swift responses, and for the invaluable information - it appears that I have a model GQ - (I wish they had stamped that on the compliance plate - would have made it easier) :-)
Now all I need to do is identify the oil-filters I need - and I have already read much of what has been said here on the subject - it's a bit confusing, but from what I can find out I need a couple Z115's and Ive bought Z503's (well actually the Purolator equivalent of Z503's {L39020})

jamas,
re oil filters.. The Z115 is the one specified by Ryco for the TD42 engine, so you won't go wrong with those...
Z503 will be fine... this one is recommended (by Ryco) for the TD42T (turbo) engine.. only difference I can see between these & the Z115, is that the Z503 is slightly shorter in length...
A cheaper alternative would be the Z9.. physically the same, & same mounting thread, & I'm led to believe (though I can't verify) that the micron ratings are the same... Only difference is that the Z9 has an inbuilt pressure relief valve..
Z9's are made to Ford specs, & are more abundant, hence the cheaper price....
FWIW, Ryco is the only after-market filter brand that I will consider... (YMMV)

Many thanks Ed, I have printed out the info you have given me and will keep it with the rego-papers etc. for future reference. I have been away (sailing) the past 2 days so didn't get your last message until after i had already changed the filters to the Z115 equivalent (and received a $11 refund).
Thanks again :-)
