Nissan Patrol ,Safari

The 160 series was introduced in 1980 to replace the 60 series. In Australia, these are officially known as the MQ Patrol. In 1980, the engines available were the L28, P40 and SD33. All models were available with a four-speed manual transmission, albeit a three-speed automatic was optional on long wheelbase vehicles fitted with the L28 engine. All 160 series Patrols came with a two-speed offset transfer case, which featured a 1:1 high gear and a low gear.

All models had leaf sprung suspension. The SD33 vehicles feature 24 volt electrics. Different trim options and colors were available, with options including vinyl or carpet floors, and blue or brown interior trim. Air conditioning and power steering were available on deluxe models.
The front differential in all models was C200. In Australia, the standard rear differential was the H233. Some versions featured limited slip differentials (LSD). A heavy duty model rear differential was used in some pickup trucks and P40 engined wagons. This was the H260 model differential. In European markets, where less onerous off-road use was expected, the light duty C200 rear differential was installed in some vehicles.
In 1983, the MQ model was updated (like a series 2). These are commonly known as an MK Patrol, however this does not appear on any Nissan literature or service manuals. Nissan parts dealers do not recognise these initials either. Updates included revised front end with rectangular headlights and an upgraded front suspension. The four-speed gearbox was revised and a fifth gear was added for most models. The four-speed was still used in some lower specced utes, presumably to run out stock.
The SD33 diesel engine was also updated at this time. Revisions included the use of three piston rings instead of five, piston oil squirters and spin on oil filter instead of a paper cartridge type. In Australia and some other parts of the world, the SD33-engined Patrols were also revised to standard 12 volt electronics. A turbocharged diesel model was also introduced, known as the SD33T. To accommodate the extra power, it features a larger clutch (270 versus 240 mm) and larger oil cooler (five rows versus three) than does the naturally aspirated version.
