does anyone know if a workshop manual for the GU patrol is available?
I own a 4.2td not that it is relevant. I am searching for microfiche drawings either online or in hard copy form.

Great snow driving at the moment.

A mate has a genuine nissan one, very pricey from memory, but it was for the 4.5 petrol, there was 2 volumes.
Nissan wouldnt give us any micro.. parts copies when we rebuilt a smashed one, but try anyway.
They have them all on CD in their parts and workshop. Goodluck!

Hi Dave,
I was chasing one about 18 months ago and rang Gregory's to see if they were available. They told me that they had no plans of ever doing one. Then they did release a manual for the 2000 3.0L model. NOT HAPPY JAN !!!

the nissan ones were about $375 and there were 3 volumes. not sure if that was the price each or for the set.

Cheers

Dave.
Nissan print a manual in many volumes, the original was writen in 1979 then a 2nd and 3rd update. If you buy all books the bill is $1800. I ordered one volume and then sent it back because you have to read the updates in conjuction with the original. I think this is a marketing blunder by Nissan because very few are sold. Reading the copyright clause in the manual it forbids the sale of copys but there is no reason a book could not be shared by many people, if we put in say $100 each x18 people and someone who sits close to a photo copier was to have the book and post off copys of whatever the other shareholders wanted it could work out.

That would be a breach of copyright doing that. You are selling copies arent you? $100 each share.

But in reality who cares, and Who keeps the original? Id be wanting it personally if I was in. So would most.

YMMV

Yeh, I'm really pi$$ed off. My old GQ genuine manual, a full 40mm thick cost me about $70. How they can justify the cost of this. For a GU 4.2TD, I recall there were two manuals at $375 each and another for the 4.2 turbo for another $140 or thereabouts. And they were talking about other updates for extra.

I recall on this forum or the Patrol forum that someone reckoned that Gregorys were about to print a manual for the 4.2. Anyone know any more about that or where it's at?

No I'm not from Kurnell. It's a shame to see Nissan take this stance and I am suprised that Gregorys are not plannign to bring one out considering how many Gus are on the road now. As much as I hate to say it Toyota certainly have terrific backup and planning when it comes to this area. Their workshop manuals are reasonably priced as well.

See you around Yack one day
